What’s a better way to spend an afternoon than with your loved one at an open-air market? For a relatively inexpensive date, take your sweetheart to the Grand Central Market in downtown LA for a fun shopping experience. Stroll hand-in-hand down the aisles as you chat about all the dinner possibilities you see before your eyes. Make a game out of it and see who can find the strangest ingredients  and let the winner choose what kind of dessert you’ll have! Once you’ve filled your reusable shopping bags, head to the Hill Street side of the market and end this romantic outing by visiting the Tropical Zone Ice Cream & Juice bar for some refreshing lemonade. Prolong your date and head over to the Angel’s Flight railway across the street and take a ride up the hills for 50 cents.
