There are a lot of romantic reasons to take a first date to the waterfront. A stroll on the water at sunset, looking at some drunk lamp posts, then some canoodling in some high-vis hammocks. There is no argument that the waterfront is a romantic place. What takes this destination over the top is the romance and the practicality. Start with a coffee and walk; if it’s going well, there are a lot of restaurants to continue the tentative inquiries of a first meeting. On the other hand, if the date is not going well, there are bars and a casino to help you forget your woes. Maybe the next one will be a compatible sex opponent/rent splitter.
