At Fun With Kids in LA, we know as parents how difficult it is to plan for a date night, but we also know it is really crucial for parents to have date nights at least once a month, if not more. That is why we have decided to start a date night page to show you the best date night spots in LA, where there are no roller coasters, bouncy houses, dinosaurs, or elephants for a change!
Pick up that phone now, and call anyone you trust who is willing to take the kids for a few hours because Mommy and Daddy need some time away from the kids, and the kids really need some time away from you too!
Here is a list of some awesome date night ideas that would help you reconnect with who you were before you started changing diapers and cleaning poop.
