10 Summer Date Ideas

I think Summer is officially here in Idaho if the sunburn I have from one hour of being outside this past weekend is any indication! My favorite season is Fall, but summer makes me happy too because I love to be outside.

With Ronnie starting school this fall, we are working hard to stick to our budget and not spend money frivolously. The nice thing about summer is there are a ton of fun things to do that are free or really inexpensive, so we can still have date nights without breaking our budget! We are committed to staying debt free even while he is in school, so I figured I would share with you some of my favorite summer date ideas!



One// Have a picnic at the park

Two// Go on a hike

Three//Watch the sunset together

Four// Go get snow cones at the closest snow-cone shack and sit in the grass and enjoy them

Five// Go to happy hour at a restaurant with a rocking patio

Six// Roast smores in a fire pit

Seven// Go swimming at the river/lake/apartment pool

Eight// Go for a bike ride-in Boise we have an awesome greenbelt along the river that is awesome for bike rides!

Nine// Search for hidden treasures at yard sales

Ten// Be a tourist in your own city-go visit and explore the sites that you'd want to show out of town guests!

  1. Going to the park for a lazy afternoon relaxing on a blanket is always a favourite summer date.

  2. Love these ideas! We're going to have to try some of them out. We spend a lot of time at the pool together or we go to the golf range and hit a bucket of balls together.

  9. These are great ideas! I love playing tourist in my own city. I tell people to do this all the time. I lived here my whole life and still to this day I find new things to do. There is so much undiscovered territory.
