There’s a reason baseball is considered America’s favorite pastime - fun to watch AND you can eat a hot dog?! What else could you want?! A baseball game is a great date spot because a game lasts a couple of hours, it’s not too fast paced so there’s opportunity to get to know the person, and there are plenty of snack foods available. On a nice day there might even be fireworks after the game!
There’s only one thing more satisfying than a good workout, a good workout while spending time with someone you love. Hiking is a great date option because it promotes healthy living and you get to spend quiet time in the wilderness with your date. Hiking in springtime is even better because you get to see the wilderness while it’s in bloom.
For the 21+ crowd, beer gardens are great places for a quick date. On a nice day, sitting outside and grabbing a beer is the perfect casual date activity. You get to enjoy the sunshine, sip on a cold beer, and spend time getting to know the other person.
Spring marks the return of the ever popular farmer’s market. Here, you can leisurely walk around, check out fresh produce, and support local farmers in the process. Usually farmers markets have more than just produce, so you can split a dessert and grab a coffee while you walk around.
There is arguably nothing more romantic than a picnic in the park. A picnic shows the person you are willing to put in the time and effort to spend time with them. An added bonus is that it’s super easy to plan this kind of date. Simply pack a basket of food, bring a blanket, and find a grassy patch to sit in and you have a fantastic date all set up. Another perk is that you don’t have to pay restaurant price for food, so this is great for a couple on a budget.
Yard sales/flea market
It’s spring cleaning season and you know what they say, “One man’s trash is another man’s treasure”. Capitalize on everyone cleaning out their things for spring and take your date to a couple yard sales or a flea market. Browse around other people's things and see if you find anything you like. A fun idea for this date would be to make it a competition to find the strangest item or have a list of things to find, ispy style.
If you have a backyard or a fire pit, a campfire is a great date location. It’s easy to assemble - all you need is wood and a match! Set up a speaker for music, bring some marshmallows, and enjoy a cozy night around the fire. This can easily transition into a group date, just buy more smores materials and invite some friends!
