A Story By

Calling all couples! Tired of the same old date nights? Spice things up with some fresh and fun date ideas in Safety Harbor for you and your sweetheart.

Dinner and a movie sounds like your typical date night, but not at Gigglewaters! This social club and screening room is so much cooler than your regular theater. Check out their movie calendar to see what flicks are coming up, they show a great mix of oldies, new movies, and cult-classics.

Your movie wouldn’t be complete without some fine dining. You can order their full menu in the theater room. From their amazing mac and cheese, to their over-the-top hot dogs.
