25 Fun Summer Date Ideas!

Spend a day at the zoo – Spend the day walking through the zoo, admiring the animals and sharing your thoughts.


Tubing – Check out the rivers in your area to find out if they offer tubing trips and spend the day floating down the river.

Mystery trip – Plan out a mystery trip with several stops along the way.

Restaurants with outdoor dining – Make a list of restaurants in your area that offer outdoor dining and enjoy the fresh air while eating great food.

Move the television outside for your own drive-in theatre – If you don’t have a drive-in movie nearby, set up a blanket or some chairs, pop some popcorn and bring the television outdoors (you can use your laptop or tablet for a smaller, more intimate movie experience) to watch a movie under the stars.

Outdoor festivals – Throughout the summer local festivals give you a taste of all different cultures. Check out local churches and communities for different types of festivals.

Play tourists – What would you do if you were a tourist in your city or neighborhood. Pack up tourist gear, including camera and walking shoes, and visit the tourist attractions. Chances are there are plenty that you have never even taken the time to visit.

Dog walk – If you don’t have a dog, borrow one, and head to the park to spend a day playing catch or enjoying a slow walk through the neighborhood.

Kids play – Invite your date and a few friends to your back yard or the local park and be prepared with the games you played as a kid: Frisbee, waffle ball, hula-hoops, kites, volleyball and feel like a kid again for a few hours.

Boating – Check out the local lakes or rivers and rent a boat – kayaks for two, a paddleboat, a canoe or a sailboat. Enjoy spending the day on the water.

Farmers market to buy grilling supplies and have a backyard picnic – plan a barbeque but take the time to visit the farmers market together to buy the fresh ingredients.


Sunsets – Take a ride beforehand and find some great places to sit and watch the sunset. There is nothing so romantic as sitting on a blanket and enjoying a spectacular sunset together.

Go on a photo shoot – Armed with a camera, go on a photo shoot. Line up several locations: the park, waterfalls, fountains and pretend you are both super models on a photo shoot.. Afterward choose a favorite and buy a frame.

Go to the beach – An old favorite, head to the beach, a lake or even a pool to spend a relaxing day together.
