Online Dating for Minneapolis Singles

Minneapolis is a city that has something for everyone! Cross-country skiing and ice skating in winter, swimming and stand-up paddling in summer, more book shops than you can shake a bookmark at, great food, affordable living, the Vikings, the Twins, and the Wild: Singles in Minneapolis have so many options! Whether you’d rather be riding the Grand Rounds Scenic Byway, perfecting your tailgating set-up, or sampling your way through our craft breweries, all your adventures will be more enjoyable if you find the right person to share them with. It all begins with eharmony and online dating in Minneapolis.

Minneapolis Date Ideas

Once you join eharmony, you’ll start connecting with like-minded singles in Minneapolis very quickly. Be ready with some great ideas for local dating in Minneapolis, and you can start building happy memories together, right from the start!

Great Date Recommendations

• Paddle the Day Away – Start at Above The Falls Sports for a half-day kayak tour – either from Coon Rapids to Downtown, or Downtown to Minnehaha Falls – or a shorter tour focused on the industrial heritage of the city, mad possible by the river. Whichever tour you choose, you will discover things you never realized were here, and see Minneapolis in a new light for the first time together.

• Think ‘Moonstruck’ – If you feel like you’ve been temporarily transported to Italy, you’re in Broders’ Pasta Bar! You will share a romantic meal of truly excellent Italian food; this is not your average spaghetti house! Many of their pastas are made on-site, warmed to tender perfection, and dressed in anything from earthy truffle cream pesto to spicy ginger cream to sweet Italian sausage-wine sauce. Save room for the swoon-worthy dessert offerings: Bright, creamy lemon-ricotta cheesecake, anyone?

• British Flair – At Brit’s Pub, there’s a great experience waiting for you, no matter what time of year. In winter, you can snuggle by the fireplace with a couple of pints, and in summer, you can take your Pimm’s cups up to the roof for some lawn bowling. The food at Brit’s is a perfect balance between traditional pub food and local favorites. It’s perfectly fine to eat Scotch eggs before your toasty almond-crusted walleye, or some cheesy, gooey artichoke-spinach dip before your steak & ale pie. No judgment here: Just great food and a relaxed atmosphere!
