25 Summer Date Ideas

There’s something especially magical about a summer date with your special someone. Options abound for free, cheap, and easy dates when the weather’s warm and there are no school schedules to take into account. So here are a few ideas to get you thinking outside the box – whether that be for weeknight dates, dates at home or the adventures you normally reserve for just the kids. Whatever you do, get out & play ūüôā ¬†Enjoy your summer and enjoy your spouse!

25 Ideas for Outdoor Fun With the One You Love!

6) Try tennis together

8) Attend an outdoor concert

9) Take up a new sport you’ve never tried before that is made for summertime weather – maybe slacklining, rock-climbing, kayaking? Have fun discovering something new together!

11) Spend an afternoon volunteering together

12) Go hiking in a local nature reserve or other scenic spot

13) How about some grown-up go-cart racing!

14) Check out an outdoor festival
