I’m not sure where you live at, but in Atlanta, you can tell that it’s officially summer. At the time, I wrote this article; it was 98 degrees outside. It’s not even July yet. Thankfully, I enjoy the hot weather. I know a lot of you guys, and girls like it too. Today, I want to share with you some summer date ideas.
Since it’s nearly 100 degrees outside I figured what better, and affordable summer date idea is there than the beach. There is nothing like enjoying the sun and the waves at the beach. The closest beach to me is a little over 4 hours away. I know that some of you are much closer. I’m jealous. Grab your partner and make your way out there.
Most amusement parks open up in the spring, but they don’t get busy until the summer time. An amusement park isn’t the cheapest option, but it makes for a pretty good date. At an amusement, park couples can get on numerous rides, play games and eat. That should be a splendid time for anyone. A few popular theme parks are Walt Disney World, Six Flags, Universal Studios, and SeaWorld. Hopefully, there is an amusement park near you.
Yard sales are the next summer date idea. They usually start at 8 or 9 in the morning so you can start checking them out before it gets too hot. A good thing about yard sales is that they are free to attend. You can go to 5 or 6 of them and not spend any money.
Screen on the Green
In many cities, parks have begun to show movies on projectors. In my town, the movies are usually shown on a Thursday, Friday, or Saturday evening. Some places charge for entry while others don’t. Most of the movies that are being shown are good family fun flicks. You rarely will see a rated R movie shown at this type of event.
I will stay with movies as I share the next date idea. Taking someone to the drive-in is another cool date option. Once a large part of American culture, there are only 319 drive-ins left in the country according to drive-ins.com. I’ve taken a few dates to the drive-in. It feels as if we went back in time. If you live near one, you should try it. You won’t be disappointed. Drive-Ins are also priced well. At the drive-in here you pay $9 per person, and you can watch two movies.
The final summer date idea is to attend a sporting event. Baseball is going full throttle right now. If you live near one of the 30 Major League teams, you should check out a game. If not you always have the option to check out a minor league game as well. The WNBA season is also in effect. There are several teams around the country that paly games a few times each week. Their games are also affordable.
