Swan Boats At Echo Park A Top Date Idea

Echo Park, Los Angeles, California
Echo Park, Los Angeles, California

Take to the high seas (aka the calm waters of Echo Park Lake) for some side-by-side pedal boating on the brand new swan boats from Wheel Fun Rentals. The stylish swans feature the option of a shade covering for sunny days and a bit of extra privacy, and they even offer a four-seater option if you’re planning a double date. While they do say swans mate for life, you may not want to mention that on a first date unless you want to freak out your companion. You can reminisce about your voyage afterward while grabbing coffee and delicious bites at Beacon at the Boathouse.


Other great date ideas in LA:

Candytopia – a deliciously fun interactive experience in Santa Monica.

Rooftop Cinema Club – Catch a flick high above LA’s streets.

Cartwheel Art – See some of LA’s century-old tunnels and speakeasies
