Take advantage of the warmer weather with these spring date ideas.
I know I’ve already said this a million times, but I love warm weather. I was not built for the cold. When I’m cold, all I want to do is bundle up and not move until I’m warm again, but when I’m warm, I’m filled with energy and the desire to just do stuff, whether that’s being productive, hanging out with friends and family or just getting to know my town a little better.
Even though winter and fall give you the perfect excuse to cozy up to your significant other, springtime gives you more opportunities to have unique and fun date nights all around town because you have the drive to actually get out and just do things. Whether you’re doing something indoors or taking advantage of the beautiful weather outdoors, there are so many spring date ideas that give you an excuse to spend more time with your significant other.
Get your bikes out of the garage, head to a local park or find a bike trail and go for a ride together. If you don’t have a bike, borrow some from a friend or rent one from a local bike shop.
