It’s finally summertime, which means it’s time to get active outdoors and take advantage of the hot sun. There’s no reason not to spend every second outside this summer. Say goodbye to the snow and hello to the beach with these date ideas.

Date Idea: Spend Time Together Outdoors

Go to a nearby park or trail and go for a romantic stroll or a bike ride. Rent a bike on the boardwalk or walk hand in hand taking in the scenery. Remember, this isn’t a race, so don’t speed ahead or try to show off your skills. To be extra romantic, go for the tandem bike and make this a team effort. Either way, it’s a fun healthy way to spend the weekend.

Another way to take in the trees is to go on a hike. Instead of a casual walk, take it to the mountains. Bring a backpack and a camera and document your trip like a tourist. Have a date night at the top of the mountain and if you can’t get to a mountain, find a hill. Spread out a blanket at the top and take in your surroundings with your partner by your side.

When you’re done with your intense outdoor activities, take a break from your exercise and sit under the stars. Maybe drive to a lookout point or a camp site for a romantic dinner. Just enjoy each others company while nighttime hits and a cool breeze falls over you. Follow this dating advice and snuggle up under a blanket or borrow his sweatshirt on this weekend date idea.
