Best Summer Date Night Ideas

Early summer is the best time of year. It’s nice out, but the longest and warmest days of summer are still ahead of us. People are out socializing, and it’s the perfect time to either meet someone new or spend a bit more time getting to know that someone special who’s already in your life.

Whatever your status – from dating to in a relationship, and all the nuanced steps in between – use this summer to get out and do something new, together. We’ve come up with a few ideas to get you started!

Go out for ice cream

Nothing says summer more than ice cream. It can be the most basic, $1.25 cone from the ice cream truck trailing its famous music down the street, or a cone from a shop that changes its artisanal flavors every day.

Whatever you choose, make sure to indulge in as many topping as you want, and take your cones either to the park or on a walk around your neighborhood. It’s a great, no-pressure first date. Plus, you can really get to know someone based on what toppings they choose.
