If music isn’t your thing, or you want to feel the rush of the wind in your face, head to an amusement park or fair. Whether you meet an adrenaline junkie that can match your drive, or if you fall short and get stuck with a clown, at least you can eat all the cotton candy and funnel cake your heart desires. Look for your nearest Six Flags or a waterpark near you to let the little kid inside of you run loose. Your hometown fair can also be a great opportunity for cheap fun and greasy food with friends or your date. Other outdoor options can be a simple homemade picnic in the park or trip to the zoo – anything to get outside and have fun.
