Outdoor dates are an excellent option for when you want to spend some quality time with your significant other. When the weather is right, outdoor dates are both romantic and enjoyably because they allow the two of you to focus on having a great time while being active together. They are also fantastic because they are affordable. In fact, some of the best dates are offered outdoors for free. If you’re ready for some special bonding with your spouse, try out one of these refreshing outdoor date ideas that you both are sure to love.
The Active Date. Grab your bikes and head out to your local nature trail to spend some quality time together and get in some exercise. This relaxing activity promotes candid time between the two of you which will help keep the sparks flying in your relationship. Hiking does not need to be too involved – pack some water bottles, a reliable map and venture off to a local state park for day of fun that you both will treasure for a lifetime.
A Picnic in the Park. A romantic picnic dinner or lunch is a great outdoor date. Pack some delicious snacks and a couple of blankets, then travel to any location that you may desire. Eating outside while surrounded with fresh air and picturesque scenery beats an expensive fine dining restaurant any day of the week.
Jam Out to an Outdoor Concert. Outdoor concerts are tons of fun! Nothing is quite as pleasurable as jamming out to one of your favorite bands with your significant other by your side while enjoying the wonders of the great outdoors. After all, a great song sounds even better when you have the chance to listen to it outside in the open air.
Drift Away. Take your date night as a way to escape from reality by renting a couple of kayaks, sailboats or rowboats to spend the afternoon drifting away. Moving slowly through the luscious water with the wind blowing through your hair is an extremely tranquil experience that the both of you will enjoy. This time of relaxation will greatly benefit your relationship.
The Farmers Market. In many cities there are local farmers markets that are held once a week While your at the farmers market you get to indulge yourselves in tons of great free samples and even stock up on some of the freshest produce that your city has to offer. Take whatever treasures you may find back home and put together a delicious and nutritious lunch.
Head To The Beach. If you are fortunate enough to live near the beach, take a day to head to the shore. Nothing is much better than the sand between your toes, the salt water in your hair and the sun shining down on your skin. Have a little fun and build a sand castle and collect some shells. For an even more romantic touch, stay until the sun sets.
Barbecue For Two. Whether you are using your old charcoal grill or a shiny new gas grill, nothing beats food freshly cooked on the grill. Spend some time just the two of you and cook up a little romance right in the comfort of your very own back yard.
Go Stargazing. On a clear night, head out to a desolate area that is clear of the city lights so you can get a good view of the sky. Lay out a blanket and enjoy the presence of each other while you see what the sky has to offer. If you have a truck, fill the beds with pillows and blankets for maximum romance. Maybe if your lucky you will see a shooting star or two.
Fly A Kite. It doesn’t matter how old you may be, flying a kite is still one of the most fun things you can do on a beautiful, windy day. You can either buy the kite or have a little bit more fun and build it yourself. Either way it makes for a fun outdoor date.
Horseback Riding. Saddle up for an adventure and take the day to go horseback riding. Afternoon trail rides or even rides along the beach are great ways to add a little adventure into your relationship. You can never go wrong when sharing a new experience together.
