About a month ago, I posted some ideas for fun summer dates. Whether or not you’ve caught the summer love bug, these ideas are great with a special someone, with friends, or even with your fam! As long as you’re enjoying the company of whomever you’re with! So, without further ado…three more fun and fabulous date ideas!
1. Fireworks! Summer is prime fireworks season. And I’ll let you in on a little secret…they’re not just for the Fourth of July! Almost any weekend during the summer, you can find a great fireworks show somewhere moderately close to where you are. And, if you are lucky enough to be near Vancouver, I highly recommend you check out the Fireworks World Championships! I went the summer before my freshman year of college and it was amazing!
All you need to make this night special is a clear sky, a blanket or towel to sit on, and good company. Also, consider bringing a sweater…summer nights can get chilly!
2. Be a tourist in your own city! I guarantee that wherever you live, there are some cool museums or tourist attractions that you’ve never considered. People always complain to me that there’s nothing to do in my little city, but I can always rattle off a laundry list of fun things from boat rides through the canals to great baseball. Just do some googling or contact your local chamber of commerce…that’s what they’re there for!

3. Take a road trip. It doesn’t have to be super far, just far away enough that it feels like an adventure. Later in the summer, my boyfriend and I will be driving to NYC to see Jason Mraz perform on the Today Show. He’s never explored New York before, so it’s definitely going to be an adventure for us!
Some ideas for the car so you don’t get too bored include bringing along a playlist full of fun tunes, finding fun attractions you can see along the way, and playing the license-plate game…I’m addicted (and for you competitive types, there’s even a “State Plate Hunt” iPhone app!)!
