Our Summer Date List

Ben and I just finished our summer date list. We’re off to cross one off in a few minutes, but thought we’d invite you to join in on our summer fun. What are your fun summer date plans? 

  1. Plan a picnic: it can be fancy in a park or casual in the backyard. You can also pick up take-out and eat it on the grass!
  2. Free summer concert: find a list of concerts in your area and make a night out of it!
  3. Go to a festival, a carnival, or something else: there are tons of online resources for events in your area. Take advantage of the culture around you and find a carnival or festival to get some fried dough at. 
  4. Go to a farmers market: and have fun trying the produce and picking up some of your favorites
  5. Cook together: maybe after you’re done at the farmers market you can come home and cook a meal! Have it be something you’ve never tried before, the new experience releases chemicals that cause bonding. 
  6. Late night swim: who knows, you might end up being the only two there 🙂 
  7. Starlit walk: find a neat path, or a scenic stroll around a lake. Take time to stop and look up at the stars. 
  8. In-house camping: if its too sweltering to camp outside, set up tent in your living room!
  9. Go for a hike at sunset: Look up sunset and start a little bit before. Watch the sunset from the top of your peak (and then have fun trying to make it down in the dusk). 
  10. Take dance lessons: spice it up with a little latin dancing or go elegant with some ballroom.  
  11. Go to a drive in: and add a good old fashion make out session. 
  12. Spend all day at an amusement park: the adrenaline actually does great things for your relationship!
  13. Go green: ditch the car for a weekend and only go places on your bikes. Bike out to a park for a picnic, the store for errands, and put some shorts under your skirt to bike to your Sunday service! 
  14. Candlelit game night: create the right ambiance with a little mood lighting for your favorite games
  15. Go bowling: bowling was the go to date in high school, but bring it back by lacing up those shoes and getting your game on.

  1. Such fun ideas! We plan on doing some of these ourselves. Oh, and I'm still drooling over your post about the German chocolate brownies. LOVEEE!

  2. great suggestions! I wish I had a boyfriend to share these fun times with. Do you and Ben intend to do all of these date nights this summer?
