A couple months ago my husband and I decided to try something new. Every month, we would make sure to have at least 1 date, and we would take turns planning what we would do. So far it’s been really fun and I’ve enjoyed the creativity of our outings!
Our latest date was a 13 mile bike ride. We rode from our house clear down to the end of Waikiki and back. My husband planned this date, and he hit it out of the park! It was the perfect day!
If you like this idea that we are doing, here are 10 active date ideas that you can try with your significant other. Best of all, most of them are free!
- Go on a bike ride
This date made me feel like a kid again! You can even race each other if you’re competitive 🙂
2. Go on a hike
There is nothing like unplugging from everything around you and just getting out in some fresh air. Studies have shown that hiking reduces stress you and you’ll have fun adventuring together.
3. Explore your city
Have you ever played tourist in your own city? Walk around and see if there are any shops, restaurants or cafés you’ve never been to before.
4. Pick your own apples
If you live near any U-pick orchards, this is a must-do activity! There is nothing like fresh fruit right off the tree! You’ll have healthy food for your week, or you can be naughty and make an apple crisp or pie.
5. Go on an evening walk
Finished with dinner and getting ready to Netflix and chill? Put the remote down and go on a stroll around the neighborhood first. You can talk about your day, and burn a few extra calories before you veg out the rest of the night.
6. Go sledding
This is another one of those activities that brings out the kid in you. And its really quite surprising how worked out you feel after a few hours of trekking up and down a snowy hill.
7. Do a corn maze
This one will get your minds and your adrenaline going. Plus if you’re a scardy cat like me, you’ll be forced to hold each other the entire time for fear of your life.
8. Go ice skating/ rollerskating
Remember couples skate at the rink when you were younger? It’s still as fun 🙂
9. Go find and cut your own Christmas tree
This is one that I’d like to do at some point, but I’d have to live on the mainland to do it, since there’s a shortage of snowy mountains here. I just think it would be romantic, fun, and full of holiday cheer.
10. Hit the gym
There’s just something about working out together. You push each other to be better and you feel better and look better afterward!
I hope that a few of these ideas spark your interest! Do you have any other fun active date ideas? Let me know in the comments below!
