Collect Summer Date Ideas

The weather is nice, so it's time to start collecting summer date ideas. Show a summer fling the time of her life or give your long time sweetie one of the best summers she has ever had with you.

A Night at the Beach

Get a blanket, pack a light dinner, some candles and wine for a night under the stars. Bring along something that plays music such as an iPod or your smartphone to add to the background of the crashing waves.

A Walk in the Park at Sunset

It's warmer in the evenings now so it's the perfect time to take a romantic walk in the park to watch the sunset.

Sail on the Water

Rent a boat or take a short cruise (if available in your area). There's something about the swaying of the boat, the sounds of the ocean and the wind in your hair that creates romance. Try it at sunset for an added romantic touch.

Go Hiking and Then Swimming

Pack a bag with plenty of water, snacks and swimwear. Find a place where you can hike and then take a dip in a secluded body of water. You might want to check the location out before you take your loved one there to make sure the water is clean enough to swim in.

Go Biking Together

You can take a scenic tour of your community or take a drive to a beautiful place and bring your bikes along. While biking around, don't forget to stop and take in the beauty of nature and have a quick cuddle before proceeding.

Candlelight Dinner Outside

You can either find a restaurant that has a veranda with candles or create the romance at your home. Take a small table, place it in the backyard or on the back porch, cover it with a white cloth, place a candle or two in the middle, and make a special meal. There's a reason this is one of the classic summer date ideas.

Amusement Park

Spend the day at the amusement park. The thrill of the rides and the conversations you have while walking to the next attraction or standing in line are great ways to get to know someone and share a few laughs.

Play a Sport or Other Activity

Find out what she likes to do, such as play tennis, Frisbee or some other outdoor activity and plan on doing that with her. She will love that you are taking an interest in something she likes, you'll have fun and moving around will help lower your stress level if this is a first date.
