These are great ideas for a special date that both parties will remember for a long time. I like the aquarium, garden and museum ones since they lend to quiet observation and holding hands and walking. The bungee jumping, well, not for me, anyway. At least not on the first date!

You're right restaurants are not always the answer - these other things, like walking on the beach we seem to do when courting (that's my old fashioned bit coming out)but they shouldn't stop when married. For me it would be the botanical garden or ocean park - that looks real fun! Thanks for great ideas - it's my birthday soon and we're having a special day out.
