There are so many amazing and romantic summer date ideas. What's so awesome about dates is that it doesn't matter where you are, it just matters who you're with. It's nice to go out to fancy restaurants and town festivities, but that doesn't mean you can't have the best time curled up on the couch. Check out some cool and romantic summer date ideas and then feel free to share your own ideas/experiences in the comments section!
1. Drive in Theater
Going to a drive-in movie theater is most definitely on my summer bucket list. Unfortunately, the nearest one to me is about two hours away so if you have a local drive-in theater, take advantage of it! There's just something about it that'll make you feel like you're in a scene from Grease. Have you gone before? This is just one of many romantic summer date ideas.
2. Go to a Carnival
There are always local carnivals going on! Find out about your town's festivities and make a date out of it. Riding the Ferris wheel with your significant other is pretty much on everyone's to-do list. Am I right?! Plus, it's pretty much tradition that your partner try to win you your favorite stuffed animal. Document the whole night with fun photos and don't forget to share some cotton candy!
3. Picnic at the Park
Picnics are always really simple yet totally effective. Even if it's out in the open, picnics can be such an intimate experience. Fill your basket with all of your favorite foods and spend the day chatting at the park. You could even wait till the night time and have the picnic under the moonlight! Star gazing, anyone?
4. Go to a Farmer's Market
Lazy Sunday mornings should be spent at your local farmer's market. You can nibble on all the samples and chat with hardworking farmers. Then, bring all those yummy ingredients back home with you and spend the rest of the day making a mess in the kitchen with your love! How awesome does that sound?
5. Go to a Music Festival
I don't know about you, but there's nothing I'd rather do more than spend a day listening to good music. Going to a music festival with your significant other is always so much fun because you get to bond over your favorite artists. Sharing the same music taste with someone is always the best!
6. Wine Tasting
If you want to class things up for a bit, go wine tasting. You'll have so much fun comparing notes and, of course, eating all the cheese platters! It's definitely a fun date to complete this summer!
7. Rooftop Dining
No romantic comedy is complete without a rooftop dinner scene. Why not make that your reality? If you're around New York, I highly recommend checking out almarestaurant.com in the Brooklyn area! It offers unrivaled panoramic views of New York City which serves as awesome scenery for your date. Of course, if you're not from the NY area, you could always look online for your local rooftop restaurants!
Well, there you have it. These are just seven out of MANY awesome and totally romantic ideas for summer dates. Summer's full of opportunities to spend some quality time with the one you love. What's your perfect summer date?
