With spring in the air, now is the perfect time to actually get out and breathe some much needed fresh air. In case you are struggling to come up with outdoor date ideas on your own, let our Houston Singles matchmakers show you the most wonderful spring date ideas in Houston—best yet, they’re fun & affordable!
1. Head Out to the Outdoors
It is indeed possible to enjoy the winter with date activities like snowboarding and ice-hockey, but if being outside when it’s freezing is not for you, then you’ll love venturing outdoors now that spring is here. You and your date can head out on a hiking expedition or simply spend a few hours walking through beautiful Mother Nature. Don’t forget to bring bug spray and a few snacks and drinks to keep you going along the way.
2. Go to a Drive-In Movie
Though movie dates are not recommended during the early stages dating (since you don’t really get a chance to talk to your date), drive-in movies are the exception. Ask anyone who has done it before: going to the drive-in movies is always fun. You have to drive to the location, which is probably hidden away so the journey will be fun. You and your date will be able to spend some quality time chitchatting and getting to know each other on the way there. With spring in the air, there are sure to be some drive-in movies up and running that provide you with a fresh and comfortable atmosphere rather than the stuffiness in a traditional theater.
3. Do a Garage Sale
We’re sure you’ve heard the term “spring cleaning,” right? Of course you have, but you may not have realized that all the people around your neighborhood are selling all the things they accumulated over the winter months. So what does this mean for you? It means you have a fun and unique date idea to get out and about. You and your date have the opportunity to raid other people’s lost treasures when they decide they no longer have space for them. Who knows, maybe you land a beautiful antique or something you’ve been searching for your whole life. Some neighborhoods get together and have street sales, which can prove to be a treasure cove for you. A quick glance at the community bulletin board will tell you when they’re being held and where.
4. Grab Ice-Cream
I scream, you scream, we all scream for… you know what for… Ice-cream! Come on now, it’s spring, so what better way to refresh and reenergize than with a delicious ice-cream cone? There are probably a few ice-cream trucks around your town, and if there aren’t, then you need to find a cozy ice-cream shop around town.
This date idea gives you the opportunity to indulge in your summer favorites—those tasty treats that will take you back to your childhood days. Whether you prefer to chase after the ice-cream truck or to head out to your local ice-cream joint, either makes for a cute date and a trip back memory lane. Having ice-cream in the outdoors is an inexpensive and delicious way to welcome spring, wouldn’t you say?
5. Venture to a Local Farmers Market
Everyone has to eat, right? So why not head out to your local farmers market and pick up the fresh ingredients you need to make a healthy and delicious meal at home? Farmers markets are all over Houston and promote local produce by letting you buy straight from the farmers. This gives you the perfect opportunity to buy some fresh fruit, veggies, meats, and cheeses at a fraction of the cost. It’s also a wonderful idea if you have a sweet tooth because you can buy your fresh ingredients, head home, and make some delicious pies.
6. Play Board Games in Your Backyard
With winter officially gone (thankfully!), now is the time to enjoy all your spring activities and spend some time in the outdoors. Now, of course you can play board games at home, but you probably did that all winter long. And since you’re tired of hibernating in front of the TV, you can head to your backyard and play board games together for a change of scenery.
Yes, you heard that right! Take it outside. Whether you have a backyard, terrace, patio, or rooftop, bring a table and some folding chairs and you’re good to go. Oh, wait, we forgot: bring a bottle of wine, too.
7. Barbeque the Day Away
Barbeques are the epitome of spring. And who doesn’t love a delicious burger straight from the grill? You can pretty much cook anything on the grill so get creative. Remember the farmers market we mentioned earlier? Well, that’s where you can pick up your healthy ingredients to use for this date. You can also have a barbeque date that turns into a picnic date. The ideas are endless, so you can do whatever your heart desires for this one.
8. Go Winetasting
Are you into wine? Then why not do a wine tour date? Wine tours are fairly inexpensive and will provide a great day of fun. You and your partner can have to have fun while you sip on local samples and tantalize your palate. You get to taste wine right from the vineyards and spend hours outside taking in the beautiful scenery and the winemaking process. Now that’s spring love right there!
