Last weekend, as part of our Alphabet Dating project, the hubby and I spent a day downtown. Along the way, we visited the Canal and finally rode the paddle boats we’ve watched for so many years. It was surprisingly relaxing, a lot of fun and less expensive than we had anticipated—only $25 for an hour on the large boat.
While we were there, I discovered a great deal for this weekend. They call it the Full Moon Float and it sounds like a great date night. Wheel Fun Rentals will be open until 2am Friday and Saturday. Not only do you have the opportunity for an enjoyable evening under the full moon, but they will give you a $25 certificate to Creation Cafe, the restaurant at the end of the canal, with every rental.
The full moon is this Friday, but the deal lasts through Saturday. Of course, even if a boat rental is not in your budget, the full moon weekend is the perfect evening for a stroll around the canal. See the sights, bask in the beauty and take advantage of the well lit night to enjoy a free evening on your own.
