One of the greatest things about summer is the freedom of activities you have at your fingertips. No longer do you have to plan indoor only date nights, which can get boring and predictable. Now, you have the great outdoors to explore. Below you’ll find a list of fun, cute, and romantic date night ideas to try this summer.
The great thing about camping is you can tailor it to your likes and interests. If you really love getting out in nature, then spend an entire day, or two, in the wild, fishing, sleeping in a tent, and hiking. If you like the idea of camping, but you don’t want to go without comfort for too long, then simply go for a few hours. You can still have fun hiking, roasting marshmallows, and spending quality time together outdoors.
Go to a Carnival
Carnivals are popular during the summer, so finding one shouldn’t be a challenge. Ride rides, win prizes for each other and eat delicious food you won’t find at local restaurants. Any date where cotton candy is involved is a win. Plus, the view of city lights from the Ferris Wheel at night can be extremely romantic when you’re snuggled close together.
Have a Picnic
This is another fun way to take advantage of a beautiful sunny afternoon. Cook up some of your favorites, or grab take-out from your favorite restaurant, find a cozy spot, such as a park or under a large tree, and lay a blanket down. It’s a simple, cheap, and romantic date that can include romantically feeding each other strawberries.
Go to a Music Festival
Music comes alive during the summer, and there are plenty of festivals to be a part of. So, choose a band you both love and experience the thrill of seeing them live together. If the festival is far away, the two of you can enjoy a fun road trip as an added bonus.
Tour Your City
So many of us don’t visit the local touristy places our city is popular for. If this is true for you, then spend a day acting like tourists in your own city. Get a snow cone or ice cream first, then walk hand in hand as you explore some of the places that make your city so great.
Play Putt-Putt Golf
Engage in some fun, friendly competition during a round of Putt-Putt golf. These courses are normally easy but entertaining. Plus, you can make it more interesting by placing a bet on who will win, such as loser buys dinner for the winner.
A date doesn’t have to be extravagant to be memorable. So, this summer, have fun together with these fun and casual outdoor adventures.
