Even the most confident people can be wary of a first date.
How do you know if they had a nice time? What if they don’t like the movie you picked? It can be all very nerve-wracking.
One way to help is to find someone who smokes weed and make that first date a weedy one. At least one thing’s for sure; people who smoke together stay together.
Here are seven awesome first–date ideas in Los Angeles.

What better way to start a romance than under the stars?
Well, smartypants, a couple trips to the Observatory and you would know that we’re always under the stars; we just can’t see them during the day.
Brush up on that cosmic knowledge at the famous Observatory that offers some of the best views in Los Angeles.
You and your date can look through the free public telescopes at any planets that might be stopping by, unveiling the mystery of the cosmos and sparking that feeling of wonder and romance.
My favorite part of the Observatory is the Samuel Oschin Planetarium, the perfect place to rest your head back and zoom off into a journey through space and time.
If the weed didn’t bring you enough euphoria, the planetarium show will.

A truly unique spot that offers nonstop entertainment. This little benched area calls itself a park and runs along a street overlooking the famous Los Angeles International Airport.
A new-age form of bird watching, many locals frequent this spot to sit and observe planes taking off from and landing at one of the busiest airports in the world.
Don’t forget the chess or checkers pieces that you will put to good use on the tables that feature boards for such games.
Taking a date here ensures a stimulating conversation, and the sense of adventure will encapsulate both of you as you watch dozens of flights come and go from all over the world.
Letting your imagination run wild by guessing flight destinations can be a fun exchange between lovers. Still, thanks to technology, you can actually check your answers by downloading a plane finder app that tells you that precise information.
One of the coolest spots on the list is the stunning but temporary exhibit and its hypnotic effect.
The art of Van Gogh will come to life through the large-scale projections that line a 55,000-square-foot building.
Located just off Sunset Boulevard in the old Amoeba Music building, the mesmerizing exhibit features moving artwork that emphasizes certain brushstrokes or colors, giving participants a look inside the mind of one of history’s most talented artists.
The beauty in these classic pieces will show a side you haven’t seen, and you’ll definitely want to share that experience with someone special.

Located off the 210 in San Marino, the Huntington offers visitors a glimpse at rare art exhibits, acres of gorgeous gardens, and an extensive library open to those who make research reservations.
If you’re like me, the Botanical Gardens will be where you spend most of your time. The 16 different gardens that total about 120 acres will set the perfect scenery for a romantic stroll with your prospective significant other.
The water lilies and lotus flowers are just as lush as the purple-green hues in your joint.
One of the coolest parts of LA is the outdoor cinema scene.
Street Food Cinema keeps things fresh by bouncing from park to park, setting up its 50-foot screen and booming sound systems all over the LA area.
Spark one up on your walk around the park before the screening, and lay back on your favorite blanket while watching one of the great choices in film they are offering this summer.

Strap on your hiking boots and trip out to Pasadena’s lovely Eaton Canyon.
Eaton offers an easy, mostly flat, walking trail that ends at the prized waterfall, the perfect place to cool off after the sunny stroll.
This spot is for the more outdoorsy couples but offers a nice change to the busy, crowded spots in the city.
With plenty of opportunities to blaze your own trail in peace, this canyon features lots of shaded areas and big rocks to sesh along the way.

Although known as a popular tourist location, the Getty is a beautiful and peaceful place that any stoner would enjoy.
There’s something to please all the senses at the Getty. You can smell the beautiful flowers and plants that dazzle with their extravagance and treat your eyes to the scenery and beautiful works of art on display inside.
The quiet surroundings help you encounter a sense of peace. You can satisfy your munchies at the cafe and coffee spots or head west for three miles to Sin-Sen-Gumi in West LA for some of the best ramen around.
Just off Santa Monica Boulevard, this ramen wonderland offers broth that has been prepared for over three days. I dream about this ramen. Sometimes, I don’t take my allergy pill so I can convince myself that I need some ramen to relieve my sniffles.
