When you’re done reading this week’s post, please be sure to share the link with your friends and neighbors at your community of Energy Corridor townhomes! You never know who could be scrambling to find cheap date ideas, and you could be the one to come to the rescue.


Roll around town on a couple Houston B-Cycles


You don’t have to lug your bike all the way to downtown Houston to explore the city on two wheels. All you have to do is rent a B-Cycle at one of the numerous stations located around town. The prices are $3 per half-hour for one-time users, or you can become a member for $99/year. If you want to try the monthly membership, that will run you $9 per month. There are stations as far west as TC Jester Blvd., so grab your date and cruise around town on a rent-a-bike!


Go see the Uptown Houston Waterwall Park


Sometimes, all you need for a good date is a cup of coffee in a beautiful setting. With that in mind, we recommend that you grab a coffee at one of the awesome coffee shops in Uptown, then head down to the Waterwall for a couple photos. For best results, go on a sunny day!


Soak in the views from the Chase Tower Sky Lobby


Believe it or not, it is possible to get a cute Instagram out of a free date. Grab your significant other, head to the JP Morgan Chase building downtown, and ride the elevator straight up to the 60th floor. The views are spectacular, and the floor to ceiling windows make for an Instagram-worthy backdrop.


See free live music at The Big Easy


Without a doubt, this is the best blues bar in Houston. It’s consistently voted as such by readers of the Houston Press, and it only takes one visit to see why. If a talented blues musician ever comes into Houston, it’s likely that they’ll make an appearance at The Big East. Next time you feel like grabbing drinks and listening to live music, pay a visit to this Southampton blues bar!


Catch a click without emptying your wallet at Star Cinema Grill


The moviegoing experience has really changed over the years. If you haven’t gone to a movie in awhile, you might be shocked by the prices at most theatres around town. Once place that still offers affordable ticket prices is the Star Cinema Grill. This place has $6.50 movies every day of the week, which is just over half of what you’d pay for a ticket at a normal theatre.


With that, we’ve reached the end of our list of cheap date ideas! We hope you and your date have a blast, and we’d like to thank you all for spending some time with us here on the Alexan Ashford blog page.
