Ahh, spring. The glorious time between winter and summer when the weather is actually bearable. It’s a time for new growth, rebirth and more creativity in your love life.
Spring is a great time for going on fun dates. Here are some of the best spring dates we have for you.
1. Go to the local aquarium
Technically, you can do this whenever, but in the springtime they’re likely to have outdoor activities you can partake of…like watching seals do tricks or something like that. And since aquatic animals are so cute, you’ll “ooh” and “ahh” and feel lovey-dovey toward each other.
2. Have a picnic at the park
Most cities have at least one or two nice parks. Pack a picnic, complete with baguettes, brie and a sparkly drink, spread out a blanket on the grass and pretend you’re in Paris on the banks of the Seine. Very romantic.
3. Visit the zoo
This is a great activity for springtime, before the summer sun starts beating down on you. You can wander hand-in-hand through the zoo, gazing at the cute animals and wiling away hour after hour.
4. Go to the botanic gardens
If your city has botanic gardens, you should definitely check them out. After all, what’s more romantic than taking your significant other to a place filled with flowers? It’s like getting them a bouqet of roses, on steroids.
5. Visit your city’s biggest, most well-known landmark
Whether you live in NYC or Wilmore, Kentucky, there’s bound to be somewhere in your town that attracts the tourists. And while most locals turn their noses up at this, spring is a great time to take off your local-hat and act like a tourist with your boyfriend or girlfriend.
6. Go to an amusement park
For the express purpose of getting on the ferris wheel, holding each other tight while you climb to the skies, and looking into each other’s eyes in that ooey gooey way.
7. Watch a movie outdoors
Whether this means going to an event organized by your city or setting up a laptop in the backyard, you can cuddle close to each other on a blanket and watch your favorite movie under the stars. Interlace your fingers under the covers and laugh (or cry) on each other’s shoulders.
8. Take a one-day road trip
Roll the windows (or top of the car) down, put on some music and just start driving. You’ll have hours in which to chat about whatever’s on your mind, can stop at a quirky eatery on the road, and you’ll come back refreshed and ready to go back to the day-to-day grind.
9. Go to the beach
Whether you go for the sandy expanse, the sun-tanning and swimming or the beach volleyball, there’s something for everyone at the beach. Plus, you can get into one of those friendly splashing games in the water that are obviously just a cover for flirting. Clearly.
