Have a splash on your date. Summer is the perfect time to indulge in water activities together. Go fishing together and barbecue your catches for a romantic dinner. Visit a local beach and watch the sunset. Rent a rowboat and have a small picnic on the boat. Spend a Saturday afternoon tubing with your partner. You can even go on a double date with some friends—the four of you can take a dip at a nearby swimming pool.

Go fruit picking. Feel like being outside and enjoying the weather? Take your partner fruit picking. A lot of great fruit is in season during the summer—strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, and peaches. Go online and see if there are any farms nearby that let you pick your own fruit. Once your basket is full, go home and create a yummy meal together using your fruit. It’s a sweet way to spend a Sunday afternoon.

Plan a one-day road trip. This summer spend a day exploring a neighboring state. You and your loved one can plan a fun day trip together. Eat at an out-of-town restaurant, check out local events, or visit some legendary landmarks. Whatever you choose, remember to take turns driving, bring along yummy snacks, and have a road trip playlist ready.

Have a romantic night under the stars. Watching the night sky with a delicious drink and yummy snacks can be a romantic way to unwind at the end of the day. If you live in an apartment, set up a romantic dinner on your balcony. If you have the yard space consider filling a kiddie pool with pillows and blankets for a plush, luxurious viewing pad. If you have the equipment, you can also set up a romantic “screen on the green.”
