Summer Date Ideas

  • Related LinksMore>>

Summer is the season where you can add a lot of romance to your life for a relatively low cost. After a long winter, an outdoor date can be refreshing and fun. Take this summer to try an alternative to just renting a movie. Show the person you are dating that you have put a great deal of thought into trying something unique. They will appreciate your efforts and you will have a great time! Look below for some wonderful indoor and outdoor summer date ideas. 

Outdoor Concert: The sunny parks of your region often host a myriad of outdoor concerts, music festivals and shows. Find a band playing that you both enjoy, or see something a bit different, such as a classical concert. These concerts are often free or offered at a very low cost. Bring a nice blanket to sit on (if they don't provide seating) and enjoy the summer breeze and great music! For concerts near you, try http://www.ticketmaster.com or search through event listings on our site or directories. 

Tourists for a Day: Explore the place where you live as if the two of you were tourists. Bring a camera and take fun snapshots of each other while you explore a place that you have both passed a million times, but have never been to. 

Dancing Lessons: There isn't anything more sexy than seeing your partner find their rhthym. Dancing can be a very intimate activity if you know how to do the right moves. For provocative moves, try taking Latin dancing lessons together, or take a shot at the Tango.  If you want something more upbeat and fun, try Swing or Salsa.  If you really want to venture into a different realm of movement, take a ballroom dancing lesson. You may learn a thing or two about your partner and the way they groove. Plus, it is a skill that you can show off to your friends at weddings and parties. 

Beach at Sunset: During the day, the beaches are crowded, hot and perhaps a little less than romantic. Hit the beach around sunset, when the screaming toddlers and elderly sunbathers have returned home. Bring a bottle of wine and a blanket to enjoy the twilight. Don't forget your bathing suit, for it is often fun to take a dip under the emerging stars.  

Museum Exhibit: If there is an exhibit that suits you both, a museum visit can be a wonderful date idea. Find a fun exhibit, even if you have to travel a bit to get to it. Modern photography, hands-on science exhibits, butterfly conservatories, planetarium visits or surrealist art displays are usually very interesting. Follow your museum visit with a nice lunch or dinner out.

Jazz Club: Find a small, cozy and intimate jazz club in your area. Go there! Jazz clubs have a wonderful ambiance and are the perfect setting for a chill date. Have some drinks, listen to some Coltrane and enjoy your company. 

Afternoon in the Park: Take a Sunday afternoon when the sun is shine and the temperature is favorable.  Pack a gourmet picnic lunch complete with: nice assortment of cheeses, baguette, fruits, homemade baked goods or good chocolates, wine, sake or fresh juices. Bring a kite and frisbee.  Eat and play together for a romantic afternoon. 

Theatre and Late Dinner: Check out what productions are happening in your area through the web  or newspaper and splurge on a pair of good tickets. Find a nice restaurant that is open late and that preferably has outdoor seating. Then, you can enjoy a nice show and have a late dinner outside.  What a perfect date for a summer night!
