When it comes to planning dates, rainy days are my favorite.
It is so relaxing and comforting to be homebound, or be creative when you need to go out with someone. It can be difficult for some people to think of a plan for a rainy day. This is a mistake.
Below are 27 date ideas for a rainy day, with something for everyone. Some require you to stay home while others allow you to go outside.
