Needing some one-on-one time with your kiddo? Plan a mother-child date night & hit the town before school and activities take over your calendar!

Try one of these 7 fun date night ideas:

1. Take me out to the ball game

Head to BB&T Park for an evening of Knights baseball. You’ll love the experience even if you’re not a sports fan and Friday evenings stay after the game to catch an amazing fireworks show. See schedule here

2. Dinner & a movie

Why not take the traditional date night and enjoy it with your little one? PG Summer hits include Inside Out, Shaun the Sheep, Minions, Mr. Holmes See theaters and showtimes here

3. Take a hike

The U.S. National White Water Center offers over 20 miles of hiking trails designed for all ages and abilities. After a late afternoon hike, enjoy dinner under the stars at the River’s Edge Bar & Grill For more information visit http://usnwc.org/.

4. Dance the night away

Go dancing at local shopping centers’ weekend live music events: Blakeney , Stonecrest , or the Promenade.

5. Throw your hands up on a roller coaster

Carowinds offers “After 4pm” tickets at a discounted price - you’ll still get the fun of the rides without the heat of the day, along with the thrill of riding in the dark. Purchase tickets here.

6. Get in the action

Don’t just take the kids to play laser tag, put on a pair of goggles, grab a laser gun and play a few rounds. Check out these spots to play:
