Fifteen Summer Date Ideasimage source: Mikuta


Summer is the season of love. Longer days, warmer weather, and seemingly more free time somehow turn this season into the most romantic time of the year. However, you can easily fall into a rat with your partner even during the summer. So planning a series of fun dates to mix things up can definitely benefit your relationship overall.

There are so many fun, adventurous, and outdoor activities to take part in the summer, there should be no shortage of date ideas. At the end of the day, it doesn’t matter if your date is perfect, as long as you have a good time together. If you are all out of summer date ideas, be inspired by this list of fifteen romantic things to do with your partner.


ONE. Grab dinner or drinks at a rooftop bar. There is nothing more romantic than the ambiance of city lights as the sun goes down.

TWO. Head to a museum and explore the newest exhibit together.

THREE. Pick out a challenging recipe and figure out how to make it together.

FOUR. Go wine tasting. Make a trip out of it and head to a vineyard for a mini-vacation or seek out a local tasting room.

FIVE. Watch the sunset. Head to the beach, the roof of your apartment, or any scenic outlook and just look together.

SIX. Host a party together. Summer is the season of barbeques and pool parties after all. It’s a fun way to spend time together in a group setting and allows your friends to get to know each other.

SEVEN. Go out to a lavish brunch and enjoy delicious food and maybe a mimosa or two.

EIGHT. Spend a morning at the farmer’s market. You can pick out fresh ingredients to cook with together.

NINE. Plan a night in. Play your favorite music, eat dinner, drink wine, and just be together.

TEN. Spend a day poolside. Loung by the water, work on your tan, and enjoy each other’s company outside.

ELEVEN. Go to a concert. Summer is one of the best times to see musical performances. There’s always someone coming through town on tour.

TWELVE. Get all dressed up and go out to a nice restaurant for dinner—the kind you have to make a reservation for at least a week in advance to get a table.

THIRTEEN. Take a walk together and explore your neighborhood. You never know what hidden gems you might find.

FOURTEEN. Take a cooking class together. There’s nothing like rolling up your sleeves and learning from the pros.

FIFTEEN. Plan a proper getaway for just the two of you. Jet off to another city (or country) and enjoy some much deserved time away from the real world.
