Summer is the perfect season for enjoying a date night outdoors. Cooler evening temperatures along with beautiful sunsets set a romantic mood that’s pretty hard to replicate anywhere indoors. Make the most out of your summer months together by ticking these 5 romantic date ideas off of your summer bucket list.
Go to a Drive-In Movie – Pull up, park, and prepare to be entertained. Drive-in movie theaters are more popular now than ever before. Make sure you pack some snacks or call ahead to see if refreshments will be available for purchase. Popcorn is of course a movie date favorite, but some other awesome goodies to bring along include chocolate-covered strawberries and a bottle of bubbly. (Drink responsibly)
Have a Picnic in the Park – The weather’s just right for a park picnic. Pack up a basket full of cheese, crackers, deli meats, wine, fruit, nuts, and other snacks to have yourself a picnic in the park. Make the picnic extra romantic by finding a secluded spot away from others, feeding each other, and toasting to happily ever after.
Farm to Table Experience – Who needs restaurant reservations when you have plenty of time on your hands to cook a culinary feast for two? Put your cooking hat on and get to it. Ask you’re significant other to tag along as you visit farmer’s markets and local farms to source ingredients you’ll later use to whip up a tasty dinner. Pair with your favorite wines to have a date night in with your beloved.
Go On a Scenic Drive – Dating in times of a pandemic can be challenging. With most venues closed and some restaurants opened at limited capacities, many couples have found themselves going on great adventures together. Escape the world for a while by heading out on the open road. Go exploring together but make sure you avoid contact with other travelers while on your journey. More secluded destinations are best.
Go Hiking or Backpacking – Stuck at home and running out of shows to watch on Netflix or Hulu? You’re not alone. The COVID-19 pandemic has many couples feeling burned out. However, the cure to your COVID fatigue could very well be fresh air. Plan a hike or a camping excursion with your SO before the chill of winter sets in. Exercise amplifies endorphins, so the mood will be perfect for making a closer physical connection.
