Now that it’s getting warmer, you and your partner might want to take your dates outdoors – especially after all this time stuck indoors. If you’re looking for inspiration to take your indoor dates outdoors as summer slowly approaches, try any of the five ideas below. Or better yet, come up with something entirely different and share it in the comments!

1. Go to the beach

Having a beach date is tons of fun, but it requires some planning. One important thing to know is that beaches, even when scorching hot during the day, can get very cold at night. To make sure you’re enjoying the weather, it’s best to go to the beach well before the sun even begins to set. 

Additionally, it’s good to know the tide schedule so you know the best time to be close to the water. After figuring out the best time to go to the beach and enjoy the waves without having them crash onto your shoreside setup, you and your beach date will have no problem enjoying the gorgeous coast and stunning ocean.

2. Enjoy a picnic at your local park

Having a picnic in the outdoors with your partner is among the more relaxing outdoor date ideas. If you’re taking someone new to your life on a date, having a picnic is a great way to get to know them. Additionally, if you find a quiet area at the park, it might be more private than the typical restaurant date. 

To make sure you and your date are comfortable, bring a picnic blanket. You can also bring multiple blankets so the ground doesn’t feel hard and uncomfortable. If you want to bring a lot of food, you and your date can make your date into a little potluck picnic for which you each cook different parts of the meal. While you and your date enjoy the picnic, you can make things more romantic with a touch of music playing quietly from a small speaker.

3. Walk on a nature trail

If you and your date want to explore nature or you like to be active (or both), a nature trail date can be invigorating. If you’re going on a hike, make sure you and your date have enough water and plenty of snacks (though not so much that your backpack gets heavy). Some nature trails can be fun just to walk through, though others may be fit for more intense exercise.

4. Visit a botanical garden

If you and your partner love flowers, visiting a botanical garden can make for a pleasant date setting. Although a date at a botanical garden can be very romantic, you should make sure neither you nor your partner is allergic to any of the flowers or plants past which you’ll be strolling. If one of you does have allergies, it’s not like you can’t enjoy the date – allergy medication can come in handy here.

5. Visit a sculpture garden

If you and your partner love art, try going to an outdoor sculpture garden instead of going to the museum. Many sculpture gardens feature abstract art that makes for great conversation. They’re also outdoors, so unlike museums, they’re situated in fresh air that can make for a wonderful date.
