Enjoy the outdoors before it’s too late!
August 11, 2017
We know summer’s almost over, but we don’t want it to end! So we’re coming up with a few inexpensive ways to enjoy the outdoors with a date. Because when the weather is nice out, it’s not about spending lots of money or taking your date out shopping on Rodeo Drive or dining out at Chez de [insert something French here]. It’s about spending quality time in the beauty that is the outdoors. The window of opportunity is still open for you (depending on where you live) so plan a date outdoors today!
Time out in the Park
The ideal thing to do is to look for parks that are a bit of a stretch from your home (perhaps up to a 45-minute drive). The drive time doubles the fun as long as you have light music playing in the car. With the parks, the possibilities of date ideas are immense. Enjoy the hiking trailers and scenic adventures, then take out your smartphone and boot up Yelp! to find a local hot restaurant nearby. It shouldn’t disappoint!
Watching a movie with your partner can prove to be an entertaining experience but if you talk about romance, drive-in theaters provide a more, how do we say, seductive environment. You can sit in your car holding the hand of your partner and enjoy the movie along with the company of someone very special to you. Caution: if you are conscious of the public, this option may not be suitable for you. If you’re the type of couple that loathes PDA, then bring a grill and just chill out. That way you’ll get a delicious dinner as well.
Check out the county or state fair
Local fairs tend to sprout up during this time of the year. For example, the Minnesota State Fair is one of the biggest in the United States. Open till labor day, they have the most interesting foods on a stick ever. Well, they are known to concoct tens of new food dishes every year. But you can still enjoy a fun night even if it isn’t a humongous event. Enjoy the calories, walk around, take a few thrilling rides and win your date that stuff animal bear.
What can be more exciting than going on an adventure with your partner? You can go at some adventure spot like a national park where you can hike to a picturesque spot or historical point of interest. Or hit up the state’s biggest waterpark. Before making a plan, consult about the difficulty and get their consent so that the plan does not get spoiled. Use apps such as Yelp! and Trip Advisor so you’ll know where to go.
Visit Some Charitable Institution
Plan a visit to some charitable institution. You might think it as unproductive, but it will bring your partner closer to you. You will share happiness with others along with winning the love of them as well as your partner’s.
