At times over the past few months we thought this frigid winter would never come to an end! Well, March 20th officially marked the dawn of springtime. The sun is feels warmer on your skin, flowers are blooming and fresh and seasonal scents are filling the air around you. It’s time to take advantage of the more pleasant weather as the snow melts away. We’ve come up with six spring date ideas for you and your honey bunny to embark upon together.
I don’t know about you, but botanical gardens are my favorite part about spring! Suffrage during the winter months is well worth it to smell all the beautiful blooms. Most gardens aren’t open year ’round, so plan a visit to stop and take in the floral aromas! The Missouri Botanical Garden in St.Louis is the nation’s oldest botanical garden, giving tours as well as holding horticulture workshops. Also, the Bellagio Conservatory and Botanical Gardens in Las Vegas is indoors, so you can visit the seasonal display all year. This is the perfect date to snap some flowery selfies with your beloved!
After taking your man to such a girly date (botanical gardens maybe aren’t the manliest places to go) score a home-run and a few brownie points by getting your man tickets to the opening game of his favorite team. Show up extra-spirited and dress up in the team colors to cheer your little heart out!
It’s the best time of year to try new things outdoors! A local beer garden is a fun place to try new types of beers and venture out to try some German-style food. Order a flight of beers you both have never tried before and secretly rate them on a scale of 1 to 5. Compare once you both are done. You may find a new favorite beer for yourself! To aid with your planning, here’s a list of America’s Best Beer Gardens.
If you live in a building that has a rooftop for entertaining, plan a happy hour! Stop by the store to pick up fresh ingredients to make a light spring cocktail. Choose a drink that uses liquor you both like but go with a recipe neither of you has tried yet. What’s your man’s favorite fruit? You could base the cocktail around strawberries or fresh lime with oranges. Check what time the sun will be setting so you can plan this for an evening when you both will be available to watch the sunset.
Cold, gloomy weather is an easy excuse for winter hibernation. Now it’s time to shake off that cabin fever and get your body moving! If you two are an active couple start planning workouts outside at a park or find a trail to run on. Springtime is great for hiking adventures as well—the weather is warm but the air isn’t entirely thick with humidity yet. Take advantage!
If you’re lucky enough to live by a beach, plan a romantic beach bonfire. Pack a comfy blanket for you two to lay on plus a picnic basket with evening munchies. Bring a nice bottle of wine and settle in to watch the sunset as the fire keeps you two warm while the sun goes down behind the ocean (if you’re on the West Coast). Make sure to double-check with local authorities about where beach bonfires are allowed!
Hopefully these suggestions get you excited for spring! What new adventures will you and your honey be trying out?
