If you want your relationship to grow, you need to spend time with your partner, which means investing in meaningful dates. There is no better time to go on dates than during the beautiful spring months. March 20, 2017 was the first day of spring, so it’s time you start making the most of it. Today, New Jersey Singles reviews the best springtime date ideas for you and your loved one to get out and get re-energized.
1. Go to the farmers market, then head out for a picnic.
There is no better way to spend a warm Saturday afternoon than bonding over a picnic with your partner. One of the easiest ways to get ready for a picnic is by going to your local farmers market and picking your favorite fresh foods, veggies, cheese, and wine. New Jersey is known for having some of the most magnificent farmers markets around. Take some time to enjoy locally made art and jewelry, then head over to a nearby park. Better yet, if you find a nearby lake or creek, go there to enjoy the scenery.
2. Go for a bike ride, hike, or nature walk.
After being barricaded at home all winter long, who isn’t ready to spend time in the outdoors? The summers in New Jersey are known for being stuffy and humid, but what about springtime? Oh, those days are delightfully refreshing. Check Google for national parks and trails, and be sure to look for bike friendly paths and paved trails. There is no better time to get out and enjoy Mother Nature than springtime. Spring also means beautiful flowers are blooming, which will provide the perfect scenery.
3. Play tourist for a day.
It doesn’t matter where you live in New Jersey, you might not really know all the magnificent things your city has to offer. You might have your go-to spots to hang out, but did you know there are other amazing places, such as historic spots in the city? Choose a few tourist attractions, a museum, a historic landmark, or a quaint restaurant. Don’t forget to bring your camera along for this one.
4. Attend a spring festival or outdoor concert.
Spring festivals are everywhere in New Jersey. From carnivals to fairs, you know what we’re talking about. Festivals are a lot of fun, and regardless your age, who doesn’t like a little friendly competition? We all love it when our partner wins us a gigantic stuffed animal or teddy bear. From craft beer, delicious fair foods, and sweet treats, fairs and festivals are a great place to check out in spring. Spend time hopping from booth to booth sampling all the goodies and playing games.
5. Pick fruit that is in season.
Who doesn’t love fresh food that’s in season? And what better way to get it than right from the source itself? Chances are, if you live in New Jersey, you have a local farmers market within driving distance that allows you to pick the fruit that is in season and lets you pay by the bag or pound. Grab a basket and pick some delicious fruit to take back home and make a mouthwatering pie or delicious pastry together.
6. Fly kites together.
Kite flying is a spring activity that you and your partner can do together to escape the stuffy winter air. April is typically a windy month here in New Jersey, and since it’s spring, the air is surprisingly crisp and romantic. Who doesn’t love a little teamwork? We love it because this date can be an extension of your picnic date.
7. Have a bonfire and stargaze.
There is something romantic about a blazing fire and all its crackling sounds. And let’s face it, it screams spring! Plan a date outdoors by a bonfire as you and your partner get cozy together. Make the date extra special by bringing some wine and sweet treats. Did someone say S’mores? Don’t forget to bring along a few blankets in case someone gets cold. With a belly full of food and a drink in your hand, sit back and enjoy the beautiful twinkling starts—and maybe even try to steal a little kiss.
8. Dedicate a day to hosting a garage sale.
You probably accumulated a lot of stuff over the winter months, but now that spring is in the air, you can make it a point to clean out anything you don’t need. Hey, it’s fascinating to see strangers fight over your little things. Not only do you get to spring clean your house, but you also make an amusing date out of it.
