Are you bored with your typical Saturday night date routine? If you’ve fallen into the typical “dinner and a movie” trap, it’s time to mix things up and create some excitement in your relationship. Here are some fun ideas to help you plan the perfect date for any hot summer night.
Hang Out in the Great Outdoors
Summer is the perfect time to plan outdoor dates. Take advantage of the warm weather and plan a day at the beach or an afternoon picnic at the park. Check around to find out what kind of outdoor activities are available in your area. Maybe you could try rock climbing or go for a hike through a nature preserve.
Camping is a great summer activity that is perfect for a romantic weekend. Whether you go alone as a couple or ask a group of friends to come along, camping is a big adventure that will be a lot of fun. You can build a bonfire, make smores, and even go for a swim in a local lake. Just make sure you discuss your ideas with your partner in advance so that the activity you choose is going to be enjoyable for you both.
Take Advantage of Local Attractions
Most cities have some sort of summer activities open to the public. Whether you attend a craft show or hang out at a local art festival, your city is a great resource for planning creative dates. Some places even offer movies in the park! You could skip the typical Saturday night at the theater and snuggle on a blanket in the park while you watch a flick instead.
Head to the Beach
Summer is the perfect time to hit the beach. If you live close, you can go for the day or if you live far away from the coast, you could plan a full vacation getaway. Coastal communities are always hopping in the summer. Whether you like the excitement of the club scene or you prefer quiet walks next to the ocean at night, there will be plenty of things to enjoy at the coast. Spend your days out in the sun or swimming in the ocean. Then head to the pier to go fishing in the late afternoon when the heat starts to break. Take a surfing lesson or go scuba diving. There are endless opportunities to have fun when you plan a date at the beach.
