In today’s world, it can be tough to figure out a safe way to have a date night. And if you’re conscientious about sustainable initiatives too? It can feel nearly impossible. Don’t worry; here at Social Greenery, we have the same concerns, and we’ve got you covered. Here are five ideas for wonderful dates  in Oklahoma City that are covid conscious and eco-friendly. 


  1. Scissortail Park Boathouse right in the heart of Scissortail Park in downtown OKC is the perfect waste-free place to get some fresh air with your date. Rent a kayak or a pedal boat with your boo daily until 8pm. When you’re done, take a stroll through the pollinator friendly paths, or grab a bite to eat in the outdoor cafe, The Perch. 


  1. Ride OKC offers an Art & Architecture bicycle tour through Oklahoma City daily. This two and a half hour bike ride whisks you through the story of OKC while zooming through districts and neighborhoods that bring it to life. Visit some of the best murals, statues, graffiti and installations Oklahoma City has to offer while generating while being green and getting plenty of breathing room. 


  1. Luxurious backyard campout with Homma Camp Co. Homma Camp Co provides the glamping set-up and breakdown from your own backyard to state parks. Their glamping kits include rugs, furniture and decor. They have add-on packages available including projectors and screens, fire pits and more. They’re based out of Tulsa but can serve the entire Oklahoma area. Exploring your own backyard and renting equipment is the epitome of minimalism and pandemic safety, with all the benefits of romantic time together. 


  1. Plant a unique succulent on a Friday Night at Social Greenery. Yeah! Come visit us any Friday night for a pandemic-friendly date night. We are a mask-required and sanitized space for you to pot up a succulent with your date. We have complimentary snacks and bespoke retail as well as a lounge and covered patio.
