What's the best way to meet other couples?

Let me start by saying this isn't a sexually oriented question. My girlfriend and I seem to have quite a lot of single friends, but no "couple" friends. This is probably because we're young (early twenties) and most of our friends are still in the happy-go-lucky stage whereas we are settling down seriously.
What are some good ways (or avenues to pursue) to meet other couples? Our parents have lots of couple friends with whom they go on vacation, play golf, etc, but it seems we're a bit before our time. Is this a problem you and your partner have had? Do we just need to put up with it? Or are there some things we can do? We have even looked into some of the "couples socials" which, admittedly, are set up as a front for "adult fun" later on, but, being public socials with no requirements to go to the after-party may provide a good environment none-the-less?
