5 Hot Summer Date Ideas for Couples


Just started dating? Engaged? Married for a while? No matter how old your relationship is, having fun together is important. Give your summer a romantic twist with these fabulous date ideas.


Make a Splash

The beach is always a good idea. Pack a bikini and check out the ocean nearest you! If you don’t live on the coast or it’s freezing even in July, no problem! Head to natural hot springs, a water park, the lake, or a close river. Snorkeling, river rafting, body boarding, canoeing, and jet skiing are all great summer activities. Getting wet and wild is fun for everyone.


Spice Things Up

Going out to dinner is fun, but you can shake things up by cooking an incredible meal and staying in. And taking something out of a box doesn’t count. This is a do-it-yourself, I-had-to-use-a-cookbook, start-from-scratch sort of deal. Choose a recipe you’ve always wanted to try, or put a gourmet twist on your partner’s favorite meal! Add some wine and a delicious dessert, and you have the makings of an unforgettable evening.


Give It a Twist

Dancing is an intimate, sensual activity just made for date night. Check out a local studio and find a lesson series that sounds fun to both of you! If you want a formal ballroom dance that gives you a chance to get dressed up, learn to waltz. To loosen up, take swing dance or salsa lessons! If you’re up for the challenge, an exotic Latin dance like tango or rumba will heat up your relationship in a hurry.


Hit The Streets

Summer is festival season. Get off the couch and take advantage of local activities! Craft fairs, fireworks, strawberry festivals, lavender festivals, carnivals, chili cook-offs, Saturday markets, street jazz, outdoor concerts, movies in the park, and art walks are just a few ideas. Find out what your city has to offer and start saving the dates!


Challenge and Conquer

Longer days and warmer weather gives us the opportunity to enjoy nature. Make this the summer you Did That Thing You Always Wanted To Do—and share the experience with your partner! Plan a cruise or road trip, train for a marathon or triathlon, participate in an adventure run series, visit a national park, hike a mountain, camp in the wilderness, or take up a new sport! Seize the opportunity to have a spectacular adventure together.

15 Memorable Bachelorette Party Ideas


Celebrate kissing the single life goodbye! Check out these fun, memorable bachelorette party activities for the bride who wants something unique. This list caters to every personality and budget, so she can have a killer time without breaking the bank.



Who says a bachelorette bash needs to wait for the sun to go down? Kick off your party during the day!

Concert or Sports Event

For your gal pal who likes to get out and do things, going to see her favorite band or sports team is super fun. Score extra points if you bring her a little veil to wear for the event, or get her on the big screen!

Water Park

If you’re going to a summer wedding and the weather is hot, head to your local lake or river for relaxation and fun! Check out your local water slide park, go river rafting, or visit the beach! Tip: wear cute matching sunglasses.

Take a Class

Cater to what your bride likes. Is she a foodie? Arrange a cooking class or cocktail-mixing class! Does she love art? Sign up for a painting class paired with wine. If she’s into crafts, try a ceramics or jewelry-making class. For a touch of the exotic, a pole dancing or belly dancing class is a fun way to get moving.

Themed Running Race

Sweating for the wedding? Stay fit and fabulous with a themed race (like a Mud Run, Color Run, Rock n’ Roll Run, Chocolate Run, or so many others). Check out local races and find one that supports a great charity. She’ll totally burn off those pre-wedding jitters.

Paintball & Mini-Golf

A series of fun activities is the perfect way to chillax, for guys or girls. Spend the day doing paint ball, bowling, batting cages, go-karts, mini-golf, Frisbee golf, archery, sailing—whatever floats her boat.

Local Festival

If the wedding falls close to the date of a seasonal fair or festival, why not go as a group? Oktoberfest, Strawberry Festivals, Craft Fairs, Music Festivals—treat your bride to whatever she desires!

Amusement Park

Is your bride a thrill seeker or simply young at heart? Disneyland, Harry Potter World, Knott’s Berry Farm, and Six Flags come to mind, but you can find a theme park that is close to where you live, too. Just be sure her veil doesn’t fall off on one of the roller coasters!



Party on with fun night-time activities perfect for the bride who wants to keep it PG-13.

Slumber Party

The whole point of a bachelorette party is hanging out with the girls, isn’t it? Get together for a middle-school style slumber party and make it fun! Do your nails, braid your hair, and watch a movie marathon full of chick-flicks.

Dressy Dinner Out

Treat your bride to an upscale night out! Get dolled up and take her to a nice dinner, finishing off the night at a local hotspot such as a comedy club, karaoke bar, or theatre. Forget feather boas and bars—tonight is about enjoying life’s finer things.

Poker/Game Night

If your bride doesn’t like the idea of going out, you can still get everyone together for a game night. Bring cards, chips, video games and/or board games, and serve lots of snacks! You can have a scavenger hunt or play trivia games about the bride and groom.

Meet up with Guys

Decided that you’re not going to a strip club? That doesn’t mean you can’t hang out with hot guys! Meet up with the groom and groomsmen, and do something everyone will love (see above activity options).



For an epic bachelorette experience, take time off before the wedding and make a weekend of it.

Cool Cruise

If you have more funds to spend and want a true vacation, going on an exotic cruise is the perfect blend of relaxation and adventure. The massages, fine cuisine, and amazing views will be worth it.

Wine Country Tour

For your wine and food connoisseur, a weekend in wine country is a fabulous way to get away. Perfect for stressed-out brides, you can wine, dine and prep for the wedding with classic panache.

Spa Weekend

For the super-stressed bride, there’s nothing better than a spa weekend. Get together for the ultimate pampering package and enjoy makeovers, manicures, pedicures, and massages. This is a great way to work in a last-minute beauty treatment before the wedding!

Head to the Mountains

If your bride is outdoorsy and urban activities are not her cup of tea, no problem! Head into the mountains and get some fresh air. Go camping or backpacking, and be sure to bring s’mores, games, and ghost stories galore!
