15 Great Summer Date Ideas

Hello! I hope everyone is having a wonderful week so far, and getting ready for what's sure to be a great Fourth of July in just a few days! I can't believe how fast summer has flown by, and that we are already starting July. Seeing as Nick and I have one month left in Minnesota to enjoy summer before we take off for another great year in Sweden, I figured today is the perfect day to hop on the bandwagon and join the 100 Days of Happy train. I will mostly be posting on my instagram (make sure to follow me there to stay caught up!), but occasionally throwing out happy thoughts here! To start the 1st day and the 1st of July, I'm going to say what makes me happy today is having date nights with my husband! With that in mind, today,  I'm going to go ahead and share some great date night ideas for the summer, so we can all enjoy our time!

1. Take a trip to the Zoo. This is great for just a couple, bringing friends, or taking the whole family! I recently visited the Minnesota Zoo and wrote about that!

2. Pack a picnic and head to a local park. Here in Minneapolis, I'd recommend checking out the Sculpture Gardens to have some great scenery for your picnic!

3. Head to a drive-in movie. There are several great drive-in movie theaters around Minneapolis, and they usually show several movies a night. Perfect for a relaxing night with your significant other, or a family event.

4. Visit a neighborhood bar/restaurant. My favorite lately has been Toast Wine Bar!

5. Go to the beach- whether during the day or at night. Just lounge around, toss a frisbee, and enjoy the company you are in.

6. Take a bike ride. I've been going on lots of bike rides this summer, especially after buying a new bike in May!

7. Visit a local brewery and try some new beers, or go on a tour. If your in Minneapolis, check out Sociable Cider Werks!

8. Stop by a local Farmer's market. You'll be amazed by the great finds, from fresh fruit and veggies to locally made products.

9. Go to a state/county fair. The people-watching is always great, and there are always delicious new foods to try!

10. Take in a  ball game. Here in Minneapolis, we have the Twins, the Gophers, and are right next door to the St. Paul Saints!

11. Check out a local vineyard and go wine tasting. Of course, this may be better in some areas than others- but a great experience nonetheless!

12. Research and find a block party to attend.

13. Play frisbee golf. There are tons of courses in Minneapolis, and most of them are free!

14. Rent a canoe, kayak, or paddle board and get out on the water for the day.

15. Build a fire, and cook some smores under the stars!

Of course, these are just a few quick ideas I thought of. There are so many wonderful ways to get out and enjoy our time in the summer. What are some of your favorites?
