The weather outside is heating up; is your love life heating up too? Whether you’re just married or you’ve been married for 50 years, you’re never too old for an exciting summer romance! Put some passion back into your life and your relationship with these 10 fun Summer date night ideas!
10 Sweet and Sexy Summer Date Night Ideas You’ll Love
1. Go Stargazing
Nothing be sweeter than snuggling up with your honey to gaze at the stars. The next time there’s a clear night, grab a blanket and head outside to get all cozied up on the lawn.
2. Visit a Drive-In Movie Theater
While a trip to the normal movie theater is always fun, if you want to spice things up a little, a trip to the drive-in is definitely in order. Make jokes throughout the movie, stuff each others’ faces with popcorn and get generally cozy underneath the blankets.
3. Go Wine Tasting
For a date that is both sophisticated and silly, nothing beats going wine tasting. Spend the day enjoying a wide selection of fine wines and once you’ve had your fill–return home to enjoy each other instead.
4. Find a Secluded Spot to Take a Dip
Do you have any secluded lakes in your area? (Or even an unoccupied pool after the kids have gone to bed?) Dive on in for some summer fun in the water! Have fun and be playful and it won’t be long until all your splishing and splashing turns into hugging and kissing.
5. Visit an Amusement Park
Remember the good old days and feel like a kid again with a trip to an amusement park. Choose the scariest rides you can find and spend the day clinging to each other for dear life.
6. Take Dancing Lessons
Few things are sexier than a man who knows how to dance (or at least is willing to try!). Take your man out for a spin on the dance floor and you’re sure to see him in a whole new light.
7. Pitch a Tent in the Backyard
Camping can be a lot of fun–but only if you do it right. If your hubby loves camping but you aren’t really the camping type, compromise by pitching a tent in the backyard. You can enjoy the great outdoors and the quiet time together, while knowing that all of your favorite amenities are still right on hand.
8. Wash the Car
If washing the car sounds boring, then you aren’t doing it right! Bring out the hoses and big buckets of soapy water and make a huge mess until both of you and the car are all sopping wet and sparkly clean.
9. Eat a Fancy Dinner Under the Stars
Put the kids to bed early and set up your fanciest dinner out on the back porch under the stars. Enjoy the quiet of each other’s company as you talk, laugh and generally enjoy being together. Don’t forget the candles!
10. Break Out the Kids’ Games
Who says kids’ games are only for kids? Imagine seeing your husband’s eyes light up when you suggest strip battleship or naked Twister. This is one game night neither one of you will soon forget!
