11 Fun Summer Date Ideas For The Couple Who’s Broke
Our wallets, though, arent entirely thrilled about the idea of dishing out cash to satisfy those glorious summer feels.
When you and bae are simply broke AF, the struggle can be all too real.
But, date night doesnt have to cost a fortune, and odds are, youll have a great time with your main squeeze no matter what youre doing. Embrace those summer vibes and let the sparks fly, without breaking the bank.
Here are 11 fun summer date ideas for every couple whos broke.
1. Plana backyard campfire and movie night.
Set up a picnic blanket or comfy outdoor chairs, and watchthe sun set together before you turn on your movie. Dont forget the popcorn and smores, too!
2. Savor a romantic potluck picnic in the field.
Lay out at your go-to favorite spot together, or choose a beautiful park or garden neither of you have been to before.
Bae can surprise you with a delightful main course, and you can whip up something delicious for dessert. Chocolate-covered strawberries and champagne, anyone?
3. Have an at-home dinner date.
Whether youre whipping up a couple of yummy pizzas, or putting together some sushi rolls, the best part is that youre working together to create something awesome (and delicious).
4. Hit up a free local music or art festival.
Soak up the exquisite art, dance to the live music, and let the good times roll.
5. Go on a hike.
If you have dogs at home, feel free to bring the fur babies along with you. Dont forget to pack some snacks and, of course, several pouches of wine to toast when you reach the top.
6. Grab a six-pack and watch the sun set at the beach.
This one never gets old, and its just as romantic every damn time.
7. Go surfing or paddle boarding.
If either you or your honey have a surfboard or paddle board, go to your favorite beach, chill out, and shred up the waves for the day.
8. Volunteer at a soup kitchen or animal shelter.
Youll feel amazing experiencing this together. And, who knows, maybe youll end up adopting a sweet puppy in need of a forever home.
9. Walk the Brooklyn Bridge, and treat yoselves to pizza on the other side.
If youre based in New York City, of course, this is a perfect option. And if you call the West Coast home, bike ride or walk over the Golden Gate Bridge.
10. Plan a scavenger hunt around your city or town.
Explore spots youve never been before in your city, and have fun getting lost together.
11. Go to a local carnival.
Revert back to your childhood, indulge in some cotton candy, and hit up the ferris wheel. Real talk: We all low-key still love the carnival.
