1. Take a hot air balloon ride

If you have someone you want to get hot and heavy with, take them on a romantic hot air balloon ride. The only thing more captivating than looking at the sights will be looking at each other. 

Try to go around sunrise so you can be floating in the sky while the sun leaves it. Bring along some snacks and drinks to make the experience even more fun. 

2. Hike together

There’s something so quaintly romantic about a picnic in the park. As simple as this date is, it’s undeniably memorable! 

It doesn’t take much work to set one up: find a cute basket, get a colorful blanket, pack some sandwiches, and pick out some wine! If you’re feeling fancy, make a charcuterie board. 

To turn up the romance, schedule your picnic in the park during a local live music set—it'll feel like a private concert playing just for you!

4. Have a date night in

For the homebodies, there is still plenty of fun to be had in your most comfortable place. Why put on pants to go out when you can stay in and wear no pants?

For a special summer date night in, buy your significant other some hot lingerie and maybe even a sexy adult game like Strip Tease Poker, Dirty Deeds, or Strip Bedroom Blocks

No matter your jam, there is all kinds of live entertainment that would make a cute summer date—no matter how long you've known someone.

Depending on your interests, consider going to see live music, musical theater, comedy shows, open mic nights, drag shows, and other live events. This is a great way to share in your common interests while ensuring the pressure is on someone else—the performer.

The cinema is a classic summer date choice.

There’s nothing quite like going to the movies: popcorn, soda, a big screen, a large comfy chair, and plenty of air conditioning. Take your date to see a new film they've been dying to catch to show them how well you listen.

For a spin on the indoor movie theater experience, see if there are any outdoor movie theaters or drive-in theaters nearby to visit for an unforgettable summer date night!

13. Get sporty

There are two ways to do sports dates: either watching or playing them.

Whether you go skating together, cycling, play tennis, or you simply catch the home team's latest ball game—sports always make for a cute summer date idea!
