There’s nothing like the start of the summer to get you in the mood for fun. With the hot weather and the good company there’s so much you can do. It’s time to shed your layers and break out your sunglasses. Cupid’s got some date ideas for you:

Top Three Date Ideas That Scream Summer

1. Outdoor cooking: Spend as much time as you can outdoors this summer. Plan a picnic or BBQ and soak up the sun’s rays while you enjoy some tasty food. Invite some friends or family over and take a dip in the pool (if you have one) or take the picnic to go and have a beach bonfire.

2. Camping: There’s nothing more romantic than being in the wilderness alone with your partner. Under the stars, you can snuggle up under a blanket or in your tent and enjoy each other’s company without any noisy distractions of the city. Take this dating advice as it’ll be a great way to spend quality time with your sweetheart and be one with nature this summer.

3. Amusement parks: If you’re an adventurous person and want to take your partner for a ride, then go to an amusement park or carnival. There’s something adorable about going on the Ferris wheel together or screaming your head off on a speedy roller coaster. Find a place that has a fireworks show and maybe make some fireworks of your own for this date idea.
