Cheap Summer Date Ideas

Summertime is winding down to a much anticipated close.  (Can I get an amen if you’re more stoked than I am for fall?!)  If you and your beau are rolling on a budget like Skyler and I are, or you’re just looking for something to do other than your routine dinner and a movie date night, look no further!  Some of the items below do cost a little bit more money than others, but the experience that goes along with the date is SO worth it… trust me. 🙂

  • Go fishing
  • Watch airplanes take off (bonus: have blankets and pillows in the bed of the truck!)
  • Mini golf/putt-putt
  • Watch the sunrise/sunset (or both!) on the beach
  • Go geocaching
  • Stand up paddle boarding
  • Painting With a Twist
  • Go to a pottery class
  • Build a bonfire
  • Go to a [minor league] baseball game
  • Plan your next vacation
  • Nostalgia movie night
  • Go for a drive
  • Game night (Cards Against Humanity, Speak Out!, Life, BeanBoozled, etc)
  • Drive around your area looking at the houses for sale
  • Volunteer at the animal shelter

Has anyone gone geocaching or paddle boarding?  I reallwant to try those sometime, but it’s too hot to geocache outdoors right now, and I’m a wuss when it comes to doing any activity that involves open water *so embarrassing.*

What do you and your beau do when you want to have date night but are scrapped for cash?  Share a story or two of your best cheap date night you’ve had and leave some ideas for us penny pinchers below!

  1. We “eat out” at home. Get steaks and everything with it (aka alcohol) and cook! So much cheaper and a lot more fun. Split up the cleanup duties and it goes smoothly.
