These twenty activity ideas take advantage of the warm weather and give you a variety of fun days—whether you’re looking for relaxation, adventure or a little of both. During summer, it’s the perfect time to take a beach day, watch an outdoor sports game, or plan an epic pop culture summer party. You don’t need to take a trip out of state to have the best summer ever! Try a few of these creative activities and make every summer day feel like a vacation.  

20 Activities for Summer Vacation  

Go on a picnic date with your partner.  

Visit your local park and enjoy a romantic picnic outside. Take your picnic to the next level by packing a gourmet charcuterie tray, champagne, and chocolate-covered strawberries. Finish the date with a grand gesture and surprise your S.O. with a special gift that’s personalized just for them like the Book of Us. Book of Us captures your unique love story on every page and will be treasured for years and years!  

Host a pop-culture themed summer party. 

Plan an epic outdoor get-together with a pop culture theme and ask everyone to dress up accordingly. We love the idea of a Euphoria-themed party with a cool high-school prom vibe that features colorful drinks with edible glitter, metallic decorations, and a killer playlist. 

Visit a water park.  

Beat the heat at a fun outdoor or indoor water park! Make it a day event or treat yourself to an overnight stay at a hotel. 

Have a bonfire with friends. 

Invite friends to a bonfire where you can roast marshmallows, listen to music, and play group games.  

Attend a music festival.  

Summer is the perfect time to check out music festivals in your city or nationwide.  

Do a puzzle on a rainy day.  

When it’s raining and boredom strikes, puzzles will keep your family entertained and happy! Personalized puzzles are especially engaging. Choose a custom puzzle that features a cute couple’s photo or one with your family’s names.  

Visit a local swimming pool or beach.  

Swimming is the ultimate summer activity! Visit a public pool or enjoy a beach day at the lake or ocean. If you don’t have a pool or beach nearby, take a staycation at a hotel with a pool. 

Golf at a regular course or go mini golfing. 

This is a fun date activity, or something the whole family can enjoy to make memories. Treat yourself to ice cream afterwards. 

Visit a local brewery and food truck.  

Most local breweries will host food trucks on summer weekends. Choose a weekend to visit one or two local breweries, sample a few beers and enjoy lunch at a food truck.  

Go to a baseball game.  

Enjoy this great American pastime with your family! There’s nothing better than cheering on your team with a hot dog and blue skies.  

Play frisbee golf in your backyard.  

Scatter hula hoops around the grass and play frisbee golf. This is a great last-minute activity when you want to play a fun game. 

Spend the day at a State Fair or Renaissance Festival. 

Eat, drink, and party all day long! Most states host a State Fair or Renaissance Festival in the summer, where you can sample lots of deep-fried food, listen to some great music, and take in a few shows.  

Replicate a drive-in movie theater at home.  

Re-create a drive-in movie theater experience! Set up a projector and attach a sheet to your garage door to play a movie. Just like an old-fashioned drive-in, you can watch from your car in the driveway while snacking on burgers and root beer floats! 

Enjoy a grown-up “yes day.”  

Have the perfect “yes day” by saying “yes” to whatever your boyfriend, girlfriend or partner wants to do (within reason, of course). Ask them, “What is your perfect day?” and then make it happen!  

Take a class to learn something new.  

Sign up for a class with your best friend or partner to learn a new skill or hobby! Try yoga, a cooking class or a pottery class. This is a great activity for when you got a little too sunburnt on your last outing.  

Go skydiving. 

Unleash your adventurous side and soar through the sky! Skydiving is a great couple’s activity or friend activity in the summer when you want to take an exhilarating risk.  

Challenge your friends in an escape room.  

Find an escape room near you and work together to get out. This summer activity lets you escape the heat and make hilarious memories with your friends as you build your teamwork skills!  

Take a hiking and camping trip.  

Spend a long weekend hiking to scenic spots and camping overnight. Roast hot dogs over a fire, stargaze at night, and bring binoculars to observe the local wildlife.  

Go canoeing or kayaking on the water. 

Enjoy a day where you can get some exercise and cool off at the same time! Find a local park where you can rent equipment (if you don’t have your own) and bring a friend.  

Create a summer reading challenge.  

Challenge yourself to read a certain number of books over the summer. Create a book tournament reading bracket and see which book comes out on top as the best summer read!  

We hope these summer activities will help you make joyful memories all summer long!

It’s officially the first day of spring, so we’ve put together a fun list of spring date ideas that you and your romantic partner can do together! Spring can be an especially romantic time for dating, as the weather warms (even for colder weather climates) and you emerge from your winter hibernation cave. This list will help you organize the best planned dates for every spring weekend. And if you’re on a budget, no worries! Plan a nearly free date like visiting the farmer’s market or binge-watching the new season of “Bridgerton” on Netflix. For a creative date, try a pizza tasting challenge around town or plan a long weekend trip to New York City. We hope you and your significant other will love trying out a few of these delightful date ideas for spring!  

9 Spring Date Ideas for Couples  

Hike at a state park on Earth Day. 

Celebrate Earth Day on April 22nd by hiking at a local state park.  As you explore the natural beauty of our planet, you’ll find calming peace and make lasting memorie as a couple.  

Visit a local farmer’s market. 

Fresh spring produce will start arriving at your local farmer’s markets. It’s the perfect time to buy local and make a delicious meal together later that day.  

Binge-watch a TV show at home. 

The second season of “Bridgerton” is out on March 25th, making this the perfect time to binge-watch the entire season in a weekend and dine on your favorite takeout. There’s nothing better than cuddling on the couch, watching a romantic show, and enjoying great food.  

Treat yourself to a long-weekend spring break trip for two.  

This spring, devote quality time together by taking a fun spring break trip! If you need recommendations, check out our blog with the top 10 vacation spots for 2022: Spring Break Trips to Make Memories 

Tour the town for a pizza taste challenge. 

Challenge each other to find the best pizza in your city, county, or state! Travel around to the best pizza spots, taste test different slices, and rank them all. Save your favorites and go back on your next date night.  

Adopt a pet.  

If you are in a committed relationship and ready to take on the responsibility of a pet, then this is a sweet date idea that will bring you even closer together. By adopting a pet, you are helping an animal in need and “pet parenting” together—which helps you work as a team and learn how to make decisions as a couple. Spring is a great time to adopt a pet: the weather is warmer, making potty training outside much easier, and you have many months before the holidays to take your fur-family Christmas card photos!  

Start a workout plan together.  

Help each other maintain a healthy lifestyle by starting up a spring workout program that you can keep up every week. By working out together or at the same time, you will challenge and motivate each other. This helps you establish a healthy relationship, physically and emotionally. Exercise will help you stay physically active to enjoy lots of fun date night activities, and keep you mentally healthy by lowering stress and blood pressure. Establish a fun spring workout routine and find an activity you both enjoy such as kick boxing, cycling, running, weightlifting, yoga, or pilates.  

Pick up golfing.  

Plan a golfing date on weekends, where you can enjoy the sport and the warmer weather. You can try all varieties of golf: mini golf, driving range practice, 9 or 18-hole golf at a golf course, and Topgolf. This spring date activity is also perfect for the summer and fall months! Some of the best dates are when you play and learn together.  

Play board games at a local brewery.  

Bring your favorite board games and enjoy local brews. Play for pints, points, or just to enjoy each other’s company. It’s a relaxing date that perfect for daytime or evening.
