spring date ideas

spring date ideas

Birds are chirping and the sun is shining. For us, that means that it is time to get active and get outside. John and I both have a touch of cabin fever and are anticipating being able to get outside. Although, the number of hikes and places we want to visit this year is a little daunting. Fortunately we both absolutely love to hike. Also, on our list is spring date ideas that we can do when we are able to get away just the two of us.

spring date ideas:

  1. Go on a hike or a walk. Our list of hikes is a mile long but we both are so excited to explore new places and get outside. Hiking gives us both such a sense of accomplishment!
  2. Stargaze. There is something so peaceful about getting out where you can see the stars. However, remember to bring bug repellent and a warm blanket.
  3. Have a picnic. Eating delectable finger foods out in the sun is so refreshing! Treat yourselves to an adorable picnic at your local park.
  4. Shop at the local farmers market. You never know what you will find! Make a game out of it and see who can find the most interesting item to buy.
  5. Drive to a new town. Roll the windows down and turn the radio up while driving to a new place to discover.
  6. Volunteer together. Find a cause that you both are passionate about to spend a weekend volunteering for. This could be your local soup kitchen or animal shelter.
  7. Watch a sports event. While this may be more for your other half, at least go to one sports event! Even if it is just for the delicious chili cheese fries.
  8. Take a tour of a winery. Perhaps even discover a new wine that you love! However, if your other half doesn’t like wine you can always go beer tasting.
  9. Go kayaking. Or even paddle boarding. Whichever you prefer.
  10. Find a concert to attend. Our local park has music in the park once a week that we can attend. Consequently, parking is horrendous but it is still fun nonetheless.
  11. Watch a drive-in movie. Seeing a movie outside can be such a fun treat! Bring extra blankets and pillows and enjoy watching the movie with your popcorn in the comfort of your own car.

    I love that some of these are inexpensive or even free, like stargazing! Thanks for sharing.

    • Thank you, Paula! Going out to dinner can be fun, but I love inexpensive dates. Especially ones that get me outside.

  • I never thought to make volunteering a bonding experience!

    • I absolutely love volunteering and it is such a great way to give back and have fun!

    • That is a wonderful idea, Alex! I love that! I bet your pup loves that too 🙂

    I can’t wait to go on our first picnic of the season! We also have some local farms where we can pick our own fruit and flowers.

    • Aren’t they so much fun? I love that I am already in my vehicle and ready to head home ha ha. Volunteering is wonderful ♥

  • I love these ideas! We went wine tasting at the end of summer, but it was still rainy and cold. We should go again!

    • Wine tasting sounds like so much fun; hopefully next time it will be warmer and sunny! It sounds like a wonderful time either way! I hope you can make it again this summer!

  • Rachel Ritlop

    Such great ideas! I think we are going to volunteer together! It’s been a little while!

    • Thank you Rachel! Where do you plan on volunteering? I love learning about how others give back ♥

  • These are GREAT Ideas!! Hubs and I always like to pack a picnic (wine, cheese, fruit) and head out into nature to enjoy each other’s company. Just sitting and relaxing. So much easier to enjoy each other when kids aren’t around 😉

    • Thank you so much Ashley! That sounds like the PERFECT picnic ♥ I might have to borrow those treat ideas 😉 especially being sans kids!

  • Kristina Wiggins

    How sweet! So important to plan special time together & to get outside!

    • I absolutely agree, Kristina! I love getting together outdoors with my husband. It’s a blast when we have the kids, but it is so refreshing to spend some time just the two of us.
