Creating the Perfect Outdoor Date
Loving the Outdoors with Your Loved One
A cold chill is in the air, which must mean Valentine’s Day is right around the corner. You might be looking for the perfect date spot—perhaps a nice restaurant and a few local joints to spend time with your partner. Well, you don’t have to search too far to find a great date location; just take a look out of your window! The outdoors are calling this Valentine’s Day. So, grab some outdoor gear and set up a game plan for the perfect outdoor date.
Romantic Ideas for an Outdoor Date
Reach new summits in your relationship by finding a great trail. There are entry-level options that have good photo ops, or you may want to look into a more difficult trail with a breathtaking payoff at the top. You may want to consider a sunrise or sunset hike to catch a glimpse of a beautifully colored sky. If you do, be sure to time the trip so that you are not hiking in the dark. Bring protection and outdoor gear as needed to stay safe.
Wherever you wander, it can encourage a sense of accomplishment when you reach your destination, especially with the help and company of your partner by your side.
2. Quality Time Together
You and your partner probably have a go-to outdoor hobby you love. That may be anything from archery to bird watching. This Valentine’s Day may be a nice time to invite your partner along to share your passions. Show them how to hold a crossbow or point out all the remarkable birds that fly in and out of your backyard.
Whatever it is, your hobby could be best enjoyed with the company of your loved one.
3. Bike Riding
Riding bikes can bring out the childlike joy deep down inside of us all. You can take the bikes out on a leisurely ride on a paved path or, for the more adrenaline-filled couples, find a neat mountain biking course near you.
They say you never forget how to ride a bike, and this is a Valentine’s memory you’ll never want to forget.
With Valentine’s Day landing on a Monday this year, maybe a pre-Valentine’s weekend camping trip could work out for you and your partner. You could go to that National Park you’ve been wanting to visit or set up camp at your favorite spot nearby.
Of course, stay warm and bundled up out in the open air under the vastness of a clear sky.
5. Campfire Dinner
Maybe you can’t make it camping, and that’s fine. The backyard can be just as comforting. Safely set up a campfire and make a fresh meal the old-fashioned way. It will take some aluminum foil, good ingredients, and attention, but the results can be very satisfying, especially when paired with a nice drink.
The best part is that you won’t have to book a reservation. This is one restaurant that’s always ready for a party of two.
