Spending time with your significant other doesn’t have to be expensive. There are in fact many affordable and even free date ideas that you can try together.
These are things some things you can try:
1. Going for a walk in the city
If you are someone who enjoys walking and seeing new things you could opt for it. You could go even to a nearby city to explore. This really helps to take the mind off of things, do some shopping and it is also a great excuse to take some nice Instagram pictures.
If you live in the suburbs you could go for a walk or a run around the neighborhood.
2. Having a picnic or bringing your coffee at the park in a nice sunny day
3. Museums and Art Galleries
I am not sure how it works in the USA, but in most countries in Europe museums are free one day of the month. Furthermore, in town there always free art galleries and events of up and coming artists.
In Italy it is on the first Sunday. A small tip for those that might want to visit in the future.
4. Preparing and having a nice dinner at home
Home cooking is healthier than eating out anyways, so this is always a great option.
5. Movie night at home
6. Going for a bike ride
Whether you live close to a beach or lake, or even just a ride at the park, is an awesome way to spend some time with your partner.
7. Going for a swim at the beach or at the lake
This will be free obviously if you live close to it.
8. At home spa
9. Visit the local library and pick books to read
You can even listen to Audible together.
10. Getting out on a balcony or at your building’s roof and looking at the stars
11. Attend a farmer’s market
Since you are there maybe you can buy the ingredients for the dinner mentioned above.
12. Play games together
Choose a game you like, be it a board, cards or even videogames and play them together.
13. Go on a hike
If you can manage to be early risers, you will be able to shoot some awesome pictures for Instagram, as well.
14. Check out a local festival or concert
Wherever you live, there is usually a good free summer concert to go to.
