What better way to enjoy summer than to have weekly summer dates with your love? Whether it be an indoor activity such as watching a musical or spending your day holding hands during a walk, the summer weather permits many options. Here are some romantic summer date ideas.
Create a scavenger hunt for your love
Make a scavenger hunt both fun and romantic by hiding clues that represent your relationship. For instance, hide the treasure where you shared your first kiss. Start the scavenger hunt 15 minutes away by foot. Choose a starting point where you will hide the first clue. Here are some ideas for clues:
- The first clue is at the closest restaurant that starts with an “M” to where I fell madly in love with you.
- The second clue is by the front door of the place where we exchanged numbers for the first time.
- To find the third clue, walk straight to the bike rack where we took a break during our first bike ride together.
- Across the street, you will find a clue near the track where we first met.
- You will find me under the tree where we shared our first kiss.
At the end of the scavenger hunt, give your sweetheart a beautiful gift and a romantic card. You can relive the memory of your first kiss all over again.
Try something new together
Is there an activity that your significant other has suggested doing together that you had not done yet? At this point, you have probably gone on many dates, so they might not remember suggesting this particular idea. This is the perfect time to sneak in an activity that your sweetie has suggested in the past. Even better is if you make it something you would not do by yourself. This is a great way to show that you care about your love’s desires.
Try a new water activity
Activities on land are wonderful, but it’s hot outside. Cool off with a fun water activity. Whether it be waterskiing or canoeing, it will truly make for an unforgettable summer date. Here are a few more water activities you can try:
- Go water rafting
- Ride on a jet boat
- Go paddleboarding
- Float on an inflatable raft
- Create a big slip-and-slide
Those are just a few ways to soak up the sun in the water. Find a water idea that both you and your partner will enjoy.
Join an outdoor meetup group
Do you and your love want to meet other couples? If so, join a couples’ meetup group. You can find these groups online, both in your area or far away. You can do something relaxing and romantic or thrilling. Here are some outdoor activities enjoyed by couples’ meetup groups:
- Couples’ massage
- Rock climbing
- Cooking classes
You can find many more ideas online. While some of them might have costs associated, there are many activities that are free of charge.
Create a themed date
Whether romantic, silly, or scary, themed dates can be very fun and creative. Pick a common interest, decorate the room, and dress the part to match the theme. Buy your love a gift related to the theme as well. If you both enjoy Pirates of the Caribbean, dress up as pirates and buy or build a small pirate ship. If you enjoy Halloween, scare each other with your favorite costumes, and then watch a horror movie together. If you love Italian food, cook an Italian dinner together. There are many other themes you can explore.
As you can see, there are plenty of things you can do on summer dates. You can even do some of these ideas for birthdays. If you are looking for a romantic gift, buy your love a rose or cologne. Enjoy the summer with your sweetheart.
