Whether you’re going out with a new love interest or your long-term bae, we could all use a few extra date ideas. Rather than doing the same old things this summer, spice up your relationship with these 5 summery date activities!
1) Backyard Campout
If you have the space in your backyard, this can be a super romantic date night. Get a tent, lots of blankets, lanterns, and a fire pit. Make hot dogs or s’mores, tell ghost stories, or star gaze. And the best part is, you can still go back inside for a shower and to sleep in your own bed!
2) Summer Picnic
Pack up the basket and the red-checkered blanket, because it’s time for a picnic! Whether you go to the park, the beach or stay in your own backyard, picnics can be a great way to enjoy the nice weather outside. Plus it’s basically an excuse to eat a lot of cheese and drink as much wine in the afternoon as you want.
Adult arcades are actually quite fun, and this would make a great date to escape the heat of the day. You can get unlimited game passes and earn tickets for prizes. Plus there’s usually a bar inside! A little friendly competition can even be a great way to break the ice on a first date.
4) Water Sports
If you’re lucky enough to live near the beach or another body of water, go canoeing, kayaking, paddle boarding, boating, fishing, tubing, etc! And even if you’re just lounging at the beach, you’re still outside enjoying the summertime. If you’re not near water you can always hang out by the pool too!
5) Flea Market / Antiquing
If you have nice flea markets in your area, this can be a really fun way to spend an afternoon together. Wander around and look at all the vintage treasures, get some ice cream or funnel cakes and pet some cute puppies! Or if you’re not into flea markets, check out some local antique shops instead.
PS- I definitely don’t want to exclude any of you readers who are single and proud! Any of these ideas can totally be used for a fun time with friends or family as well!
