There is just something about a summer romance that makes us smile. The fun, flirty nature of a warm summer evening can provide the perfect setting for a romantic date. From a stunning sunset, to a lazy picnic by the beach summer just makes everything better. So indulge us. Here are our top 5 perfect summer dates.
1. Laneway Hopping
Starting early on in the evening, a cute laneway hopping date will feed all the senses. Taste testing the best your city’s laneways, underground restaurants and bars have to offer, is a super cute way to get to know your date. Walking around the laneways and city means you have plenty of time to really talk to each other (whilst admiring the fine architecture of course), having a number of eating options allows you to get to know your dates preferences when it comes to being a foodie (bonus info for future dates) and you get to taste the best your city has to offer providing you with an epic food envy story post date debrief (aka gossip) with friends.
2. Lazy Afternoon Picnic
This laid back yet tres chic picnic is the perfect setting for any date, whether it is your first or your 100th. It really is the traditional simple efforts that get us. It is timeless really. A Picnic rug. A Food spread. Champagne and strawberries. Lazing about looking up at the clouds. Perfect date bliss.
3. Get your SUP on
Stand up Paddle boarding on a summer day is an amazing and fun date acitvity. And why wouldnt it be! Sunshine? Check. Beach? Check. Fitness? Check. Good Company? Check.
Obviously we wouldn’t reccommend this on a first date (only if you’re keen), but if you do your planning right and find a gorgeous little inlet to paddle in to, this date will be truly memorable for everyone. Imagine paddling out, sitting on the board and watching the sunset fade away, melting from peach, to orange to red to yellow where the sky meets the depths of the ocean. A simple, stunning memorable end to a summer date.
4. Pool Hangs
Unless you have a pool, heading down to your local public pool can be an awesome, easy and fun hot summer date. Being at a public pool takes me back to when I was a kid. The cool tunes, sunshine, waterslides, sunnyboys and cornettos. Ah the memories! Now your date may be a little more PG than G rated but an afternoon of sunshine, good conversation, summer treats and dips in the pool is too good an offer to pass up.
5. Go for Gelato
What a cute date to cool off on a summer day. A wise man once said ‘Without Gelato there would be Darkness and Chaos’, well something similar to that effect anyway, but we sure do agree. Whether it is a post dinner dessert or a meal in itself, there is always room for gelato.
Remember summer only lasts for 3 months of the year, so make the most of every summer date because summer memories are the very best memories.
