And there's nothing sweeter than summertime love. So, skip your old routine of Netflix and takeout and tap in to your "child side" with these fun dates before the school bells start ringing again.
Take a weekday off work and head to your closest natural springs. The water is cool and clear and may be just the mid-week pick-me-up that both of you need. Pack a picnic and don't forget some floats!
Wear a vintage swimsuit, while he wears retro trunks, and ride to the beach in a rented convertible. Fly colorful kites, bring fruity popsicles and race around on roller skates.
Hang a map of your state on the wall, blindfold your beau and let fate decide where you'll both head to next. Grab the keys and some classic rock 'n' roll tunes and discover the new town.
You don't have to travel miles away and spend months planning the perfect vacation. Set up a tent in your backyard and toast marshmallows over your fire pit for some yummy summertime treats!
Rent a canoe and take a couple of fishing poles out to a lake. Then, as the dusk rolls in, set up a blanket and a telescope and see the stars up close.
Skate hand-in-hand to "Achy Breaky Heart" under laser lights and a disco ball. When you've skated beyond your own risk, take a break with Fruit Roll-Ups and Pixy Stix at the snack bar.
... The Notebook-style. Ride the Ferris wheel, crash with bumper cars and race on go-karts. Then, laugh the evening away while trying to win a goldfish at the carnival games — cotton candy in hand, of course.
Head to your closest state or national park and take a hike through the woods on horseback. Make some homemade trail mix and throw a bird-watching guide and some binoculars in your knapsack.
Nothing is more summer than bikes and ice cream. So, why not have both. Make up your own downtown tasting tour of your favorite small bites and ice cream shops.
Do something you've never done before, so it will be a first for both of you — like climbing the skies in a hot-air balloon. Afterward, go to a tea shop and share the memory over hot tea and coffee.
