With the weather getting hotter, summer is the best time to add some heat to your relationship.

Some of our amazing date ideas may be ones that you may have been waiting months to finally be able to do with your partner. But just in case you find yourself scrambling to think of some fun ways to spend the summer, we have you covered.

In honor of some “summer lovin,’” we share five date ideas that can help fill those long days of sunshine with hours of fun and memories to last a lifetime — whether you’re in a relationship or single. Many of these activities are also a fantastic way to meet someone new.

Explore different food options in your city

You may find yourself spending more time outside during the summer, which means you want to do yourself a favor and become aware of the different food vendors your city has to offer. Many of which may be even more enjoyable during the summer days with available patio seating. Additionally, food trucks are becoming increasingly popular and may also be something that has an increased level of appeal with hotter weather.

Many prominent cities will offer different festivals in the summer centered around food trucks. It can be a wonderful opportunity to explore the city you love, while also expanding your palate. There are also apps, such as Roaming Hunger, that will help take the guesswork out of it and keep you up to date with local food trucks and where they may be located. You can even go one step further and look at shops that may be in the area of the restaurant (or truck) and plan a cute date that centers around that and allows you to stay out in the sun.

Take out your bike (or go for a hike!)

There is never a bad time of the year to try and enjoy some of the natural environment your city may offer to you. But when the weather starts to warm up, the idea of taking a trip to a local park may be something that is even more intriguing. If you are feeling even more adventurous, don’t be afraid to bust out your bike and go for a ride.

If you are able to do some research about the city that you live in, you may find some fantastic bike trails nearby. And just in case you like moving with your own two feet, hiking trails are something that should be readily available. Plus, once you’ve found yourself being active on a regular basis, it’s very possible that you are left with a body that you are more than happy to show off at the beach, which brings us to our next point.

Be prepared for the beach

If you are looking for a reason to become excited for a nice sunny day, as opposed to dreading it, ensuring familiarity with the beach is a great way to start. There is no question that you may have to interact with a large number of people, but if you find yourself on a fun date, you would hope that it isn’t enough to deter you.

Just make sure you are properly prepared for a day at the beach. This includes making sure you have towels, sunscreen and perhaps a few activities. One of the best things to bring to the beach is a deck of cards. It’s light, affordable to lose and can be great to do while having an engaging conversation. The fact that the beach isn’t an option in the winter for many people means you should also make sure you take advantage of it while the sun is still shining.

Go camping

It’s understandable if you don’t define yourself as being someone who is an “outdoors person.” But you’re doing yourself a disservice if you don’t try and spend at least one summer night looking up at the stars after you go camping with the person that you love the most.

It can be very easy in today’s society to constantly be obsessed with your phone and technology. But the amazing weather that comes with summer may make even the biggest “indoors fan” be open to the idea of camping out, especially if your partner is someone who prefers getting to be out there in nature. Which means that along with enjoying yourself, you get to show your partner how much they mean to you.

Embrace local activities that are summer based

Every summer, hundreds of thousands of people attend the state fairs and exhibitions, which are community events that offer a variety of exciting rides, exhibits and attractions. Thankfully, many cities across North America hold a similar attraction. But it is far from the only entertainment available in the summer.

Other fun summer events that tend to be around in the summer and located in your town are simple things, such as going to a movie in the park or volunteering together to walk dogs at the local dog shelter when the weather isn’t making you shiver!

Many other cities also offer a variety of sports teams that are around in the summer and are co-ed. Not only do you get to embrace the heat for a cute date when you first decide to go out for the team, but you get to continue building on that throughout the entire summer. And in the end, are left with a team that you may be excited to return to the next summer.
