BEST SPOTS: Inexpensive Dates

SOUTH METRO – For this week’s installment of Best Spots, we've compiled a list of Inexpensive Date Spots for you to take your special someone.

In today’s economy, it’s important to find companionship which, in our opinion, is the cheapest form of entertainment. However, it’s the springtime, and people like to get out every now and then. So, check out these suggestions for fun under $15.

If you had a rough week, take your date to Range, Guns and Safes to blow off some steam. Every Wednesday, this range, located in Forest Park, costs $10 for the first hour of target practice for male/female couples. Subsequent hours are $12 each.

Cobb County, GA--  (submitted by Cobb Communications)  The successful fitness program Walk Georgia is back and residents are encouraged to participate and move more for healthier lives. 

Walk Georgia is a free eight-week program sponsored by University of Georgia/Cobb County Cooperative Extension. The program is designed to increase physical activity in a fun, community-oriented way. Participation is available as an individual or in teams of four. Participants can log exercise virtually at walkgeorgia.org and the program translates activities, such as aerobics classes, walking the dog and a pick-up game of basketball, into "miles." Through the online map, participants can electronically chart a course as they "walk" across Georgia, learning interesting facts about the counties visited.

This will be the only Walk Georgia program held this year. Online registration for the program is open Feb.
