The 40 Best Spring Date Ideas To Experience With Your Partner
Winter is finally coming to an end and springtime is upon us. The days are getting longer and the cold nights are slowly getting warmer. It is a time for rejuvenation and rebirth, and there is no better time to celebrate the love you have with your partner than by organizing one of the many classic spring date ideas on offer.
Whether you are thinking of a picnic in the park, a hike in the mountains, or a night stargazing in your backyard, Spring allows you a multitude of different date options for you to enjoy with your loved one. If you are stuck on ideas we are here to help. Here are 40 of the best Spring date ideas you can try over the next three months and show your partner how much you care.
1. Visit an Art Gallery or Museum
Show your date you are cultured by taking her to an art gallery or museum. The best thing about this type of date is that it gives you plenty of time to chat and get to know each other as you wander around and check out the various exhibits. Even if the date doesn’t go as planned, as least you will learn a thing or two.
2. Have a Picnic
Who doesn’t love a picnic? All you need is a rug, a hamper full of goodies, and some alcohol, and you are set. Bring a portable speaker and hook it up to your phone and play some tunes to add some atmosphere. This is a great way to spend an afternoon and impress your date with your picnic-making skills.
3. Visit a Farmer’s Market
Head along to your local Farmer’s Market and spend the morning tasting some of the local produce from your area. Buy the ingredients for a hearty lunch or dinner and be sure to sample a coffee or two as you walk around the market. This is one is more of a weekend-only date idea and best organized for date two or three.
There are so many different places you can volunteer with your date. Help the homeless by spending a night handing out food or visit your local animal shelter and do what you can to assist. This shows your date that you are compassionate and emphatic and will also make you feel good deep inside.
5. Paint and Sip
This activity has become more and more popular, especially with the advent of the pandemic. The premise is simple: paint your date while knocking back a few glasses of wine. There is bound to be a paint and sip class in your local area, and if not, it is a date you can easily do from home. Just be sure not to get paint on the couch.
6. Take a Walk
If you are short of cash, suggest a walk in the park or around your neighborhood. Take in your surroundings as you get to know each other. This one is good for your health and easy on the wallet. Maybe just splurge on a pre-walk coffee or grab an ice cream when finished, just to show you aren’t a complete cheapskate.
7. Go Paddle Boating
This is a romantic date idea that enables you to take part in a fun activity while getting to know each other. Paddle around a lake and take it all in as you chat and laugh while getting to know each other better. Just be prepared to do most of the paddling if your date gets tired.
8. Play Mini Golf
Who doesn’t love mini golf? This is a super fun Spring date idea that gets you outside and hitting some balls around, albeit in a small space and not on the greens. It can be done day or night and gives you the chance to indulge in your competitive side with your partner.
9. Go on a Weekend Getaway
Now, this is a date idea that only works if you have been seeing each other for a while, as I don’t suggest taking someone away on the first date. But now that the skies are clearing, organize to take your date away on a weekend getaway. Whether this involves a few nights in a luxury hotel, camping in the wild, or an Airbnb in a nearby city, it is a great way to hang out together and forget about everyday life for a while.
10. Visit the Zoo
If she loves animals (and isn’t against them being held in captivity) then a day at the zoo is a great option. You can spend hours enjoying all the different animals on show, from the monkeys to the lions. Be sure to catch feeding time for some extra entertainment.
11. Go Stargazing
If you get a clear night take your car out into the country and find a place to park up and watch the stars. Lay a blanket down and cuddle up as you try and spot the Milky Way. This is a Spring date idea you can also do from home too. Just head out into your backyard, sit on the lawn, and do some stargazing with your partner.
12. Take a Bike Ride
Another great outdoor activity, hop on your bikes and spend the day cruising around your city. Visit a couple of cafes (or pubs) while exploring on your bike. Or maybe if it is warm, take a ride to the beach. The options are endless.
13. Go Hiking
If you and your date enjoy the outdoors, head up into the hills for a hike one day when you are both free. Get back to nature and get some fresh air as you navigate a popular trail. Not only are you getting some exercise, but a hike gives you plenty of time to chat and get to know each other better.
14. Watch a Sunset/Sunrise
Depending on whether you and your date are early risers, take in a sunset or sunrise one day. There is nothing better than watching as day turns to night or vice versa, especially if you have a favorable background. It will make you appreciate life and how lucky you are to be on a date with such a wonderful person.
15. Go Strawberry Picking
What is more romantic than picking strawberries together? Ok, quite a few things, but this is a fun date idea that is also great if you love strawberries. Pick a punnet and head home to devour them with cream or chocolate. Or if you are a little more skilled in the kitchen, whip up some strawberry ice cream or a strawberry pie. Both are sure to impress your date.
16. Movie in the Park
The cinema is great, but during Spring there are usually a number of places that host outdoor cinemas. These large screens are erected in parklands where you can come and watch the latest blockbuster or cult classic with movie fans. Don’t forget the popcorn and beer. Also, make sure you bring a jumper as it can get chilly.
17. Take a Roadtrip
This is another date idea that is best for those couples that have been together for a while. Load up the car and take a trip somewhere. Anywhere. Whether you are visiting another city or state, nothing beats traversing the open road with your partner. Just make sure you create a fantastic playlist to accompany you on the journey.
18. Spring Clean Your Relationship
Spring often means a cleanout of your home, so why not do the same with your relationship? Sit down with your partner and talk about your life together. Discuss your goals and outlook for the future while also addressing any issues you might have. This is a great time to communicate any problems you might have and make the necessary changes to keep your relationship strong.
19. Games Night
Whether this is board games, card games, or charades, having a night in playing games is great. It can bring out the competitive side of you both and get the juices flowing as you give each other some stick about who is going to win. There are so many different board games available these days that you are sure to find one that appeals to you both.
20. Visit a Playground
It might sound suss, but relive your youth by spending a few hours mucking about at a playground. Go down the slide together. Push each other on the swings. Tackle the monkey bars. Have a bit of a laugh together and remember what it was like to be a child. Just make sure you don’t push any kids off the equipment.
21. Go Skateboarding
Head to your local skate park and rip some heel flips and impress your date. Or maybe participate in some free skating and roam the streets, skating to your favorite pub for a beer or three.
22. Play Pool
Speaking of pubs, Spring date ideas don’t get any better than an evening playing pool while knocking back a few froths. Play against your date or team up against another couple and test out your skills. The more you drink the better you will get (maybe).
23. Fly a Kite
If you get a windy day then whip out a kite and have some fun. Head to your local park or down the beach and see if you can get the kite flying high in the sky. You can get a cheap one from the mall or visit a hobby shop and invest in a more expensive kite that is sure to do the business.
24. Host a Cook-Up
Fire up the grill and cook up some delicious grub for your lady friend. This doesn’t just have to be a date with your partner. Invite some other couples around and show off your cooking skills on the grill. You don’t have to host either. Head to your nearest park and use one of the free BBQs for your cook-up.
25. Attend a Sporting Event
Even if your date isn’t big on sports, she will love the atmosphere that comes with watching live sport. Get decked out in your team’s colors and immerse yourself in the home end. Hotdogs and beers are a must as you cheer your team to victory (hopefully!).
26. Train for a Marathon
If you both enjoy fitness why not train for a marathon? This one you can take part in regularly, catching up once or twice a week to work out together and practice your running. It is a great way to keep fit and the ultimate reward of completing the marathon together will be a great achievement.
27. Grab a Coffee
Coffee dates are standard these days. They are a great way to meet in a public setting where your date can feel safe while you sip on your favorite roasted beans. Take your date to your favorite coffee spot and see if she likes what you drink.
28. Attend a Play
This can be a production at your local high school, something put on by a passing trope or a professional play on Broadway. It is a fantastic way to spend an evening together, watching an art form that doesn’t get the respect it deserves. You can also dress up and treat yourselves to a nice dinner beforehand.
29. Go for Ice Cream
It’s not exactly warm, but that doesn’t mean you can’t go for ice cream. This is one tasty treat that can be eaten in any weather at any time of the day. Whether it is in a cone or a tub, ice cream is always good. Even better when enjoyed with someone you love.
30. Take a Food Tour
Many cities have food tours where you visit a number of establishments and get to try a variety of yummy foods. The organized tours also provide background on what you are eating and the local food scene. You can also make up your own and visit your favorite spots together.
31. Celebrate Earth Day
April 22 is Earth Day, a special day that celebrates the anniversary of the modern environmental movement. Do your bit for the environment that day by volunteering to help clean up your local beach or plant some trees. There are heaps of things you can do. For more information visit the official Earth Day website.
32. Binge Watch a Show
You don’t have to get out and about every time you plan a date. If the weather isn’t great or you just can’t be bothered, pick a show and settle in for a night of binging. Grab some snacks and get cozy under a rug as you watch the latest true crime doco series or highly-rated HBO show.
33. Visit a Rooftop Bar
Make the most of the Spring weather before Winter hits and enjoy a few drinks on a rooftop bar. Watch the sunset as you indulge in some cocktails and enjoy each other’s company.
34. Go To a Theme Park
This is one for the thrill-seekers. Bond over your love of Disney characters at Disney world or experience scream-inducing roller coasters at one of the many theme parks dotted across America. Spend an entire day together trying all the rides and eating dagwood dogs. Spring is also a great time to go as there are fewer people about.
35. Prank Each Other
April Fool’s Day is a great time to get one over your partner. Plan a string of pranks to play on them throughout the day and have a few laughs. Just be sure not to take things too far as you do want to keep seeing her.
36. Head To a Gig
Go and see some live music. It doesn’t matter whether you are checking out a local band or a massive international act, supporting the live music industry is a must in these current times. Bop your head laong ot have a dance as you enjoy the tunes with your lady.
37. Play Tennis
Get the blood pumping and have a hit of tennis with your partner. Tennis is a pretty easy-to-pick-up game that will get your heart rate up and is lots of fun to play. After you are done, go have some drinks and talk about who the better player is and make your excuses for losing.
38. Visit a Winery or Brewery
Depending on whether wine or beer takes your dates fancy, a day at either a winery or brewery is great fun. Sample some of the drinks on offer and taste the local food, just remember to book an Uber so you get home safely.
39. Organize a Two-Person Book Club
If you both enjoy reading a great date idea is to organize a book club for the two of you. Choose a book you both want to read and give yourself a month to finish. Once you have both finished, set up a time to catch up and chat about the book and give your thoughts on what happened. You can meet at a cafe or sort a little platter and do it at home.
40. Spa Night
Treat yourselves to a night of pampering at home. This one is probably going to entertain her more than you, but that isn’t a bad thing. Give her a back rub, manicure, and pedicure, and finish the night soaking in the tub together.
