Late Summer Date Ideas

Can you believe summer is almost gone? Before we say farewell to flip flops and gelato, make the most of these long, gorgeous days with a memorable summer date. The great thing about summer is you don’t have to do much planning to have a fun time. Here are a few romantic date ideas to make this summer hotter than ever.

Have an outdoor picnic
So you think picnics are a cliched date idea? You’re completely right! But here’s the thing…who cares! In a month or two you’ll be stuck indoors complaining that you never spent enough time with your honey at your favourite park or beach. So, throw a few tasty treats and cold beers into a tote bag, choose a comfortable, intimate spot and enjoy a late summer picnic.

Go restaurant hopping
Forget boring old dinner dates. Turn your night out into a moveable feast. Sample a variety of new flavours with an improvised restaurant hop.One way to break up the date is to enjoy each part of the meal at a different culinary spot. For example, cocktails at that new cocktail bar you’ve been dying to try, entrees at the cute Turkish place across the road, then take a walk and enjoy your main course at a food truck or market stall, and finish with dessert at a funky hole-in-the-wall.

Let’s get physical
Late summer is the perfect time to get outdoorsy with your man. The brutal heat is gone, with just endless sunshine, warm temperatures and stunning scenery to enjoy. only wise to take advantage of the sunshine, warm temperatures, and beautiful scenery. One of the best late summer date ideas is to engage in some friendly rivalry – whether you’re a big sports fan or not that adventurous. There’s never a shortage of outdoor things to do – think beach volleyball, tennis, mountain biking, kayaking, horseback riding or simply take a walk in the park.

Soak in a jacuzzi with a bottle of Champagne
It’s time to get your sexy on! When was the last time you lounged in a hot tub with a bottle of bubbly? Strip down to your cossie (it may be the last chance you get to wear it this summer!) and get hot and steamy with your sexy half-naked man.

5 Hot Summer Date Ideas

It’s hot, the days are long, and you’re stuck for date ideas with your honey. There’s no better time to plan something fun and creative, whether it’s your second date or you’ve been together for, well, ever. Get inspired with these cute date ideas that make the most of summer.

Summer festivals
It’s raining festivals and fun across the country right now, from the Sydney Festival to Melbourne’s Friday night markets at Abbotsford Convent. Hit up your local Time Out website and check out their event listings. Or take a road trip to check out a nearby festival.

Dinner alfresco
Move your dinner outside in the summer. Many parks have free or cheap barbecues. The meal doesn’t have to be fancy – pack some drinks and cook up some steaks or seafood, sit and watch the stars – it’s even better than camping (all the romance, but no public showers to deal with). A picnic in the park – or on your balcony, is just as fun. Just don’t forget the citronella…

Cool off
Temperatures are soaring, so cool off with your honey. Hit up your favourite ice cream or frozen yogurt shop – it’s a great way to start or end the evening. See if there’s an aquatic park near you and splash around like kids. Sometimes finding refuge in air conditioning is the best answer – you can never go wrong with a bowling alley, cinema or crank up the AC at home and have a movie marathon.

A little culture
From outdoor movies to Shakespeare in the park, summer is the season to enjoy the arts without the stuffiness. Stop bemoaning the lack of live music and check out the bands at your local pub. Or do a gallery hop and unearth some undiscovered artists.

Sand and surf
Whether you sunbake, surf or stroll at sunset, there’s no better place to be in summer with your partner in crime than at the beach. If you don’t have a beach near you, enjoy the water at home with some daiquiris by the pool. No pool? No problem! We picked up a kid’s blow-up pool and it’s the best $30 we ever spent!
