Summer. [Insert a relaxing sigh here] The more I say it the more excited I get. Now that the weather is FINALLY bearable and the beaches are officially opened, it’s time to brainstorm summer date ideas… inspired by who else? Some of our favourite celebs.
1) Bike Date
Miley Cyrus and hunky boyfriend Liam Hemsworth pedalled to a nearby 7-11 convenience store to get a Slurpee in Toluca, California. They’re the ultimate couple for cute date ideas. In the past they’ve gone jet-skiing and got fresh Dirty Dancing-style. Miley also punk’d Liam, though we only advise that if you both have a good sense of humour.
2) Outdoor Movie
Justin Bieber rented out an ENTIRE movie theatre for a date with Selena Gomez. Okay, so this probs isn’t going to happen. For one thing, you’re not Justin Bieber. Also, you’re not Justin Bieber. Anyway, the musician rented out the Staples Center so he and Selena could watch Titanic in privacy. Apparently he didn’t even have to pay! We’re not expecting you to top this because it’s oodles of moolah, but a simple drive-in movie is be a cute date idea. If you don’t have a car, that’s okay. Set up a blanket on the grass and enjoy the movie in each other’s arms.
3) Outdoor Music Festival
Emma Roberts and Chord Overstreet were all lovey dovey at Coachella. You might have missed the festival but there are plenty of other outdoor music festivals coming up, like Osheaga, the Calgary Stampede, Bluesfest and NXNE. This might be a little too nostalgic, but you might just hear “your song” performed live.
4) Amusement Park
Check out Deena, Snooki and Pauly D on the boardwalk in Seaside Heights.We don’t always want to mimic the behaviour of Jersey Shore cast mates but summer carnivals are a great summer date idea. Danny Zuko might even win you a cute giant teddy bear.
5) Ice Cream Date
After a hot summer day you and your guy can walk or bike to the nearest dairy queen and share a cone or two a la Kim Kardashian and Kanye West (Kimye). And after you hit up Dairy Queen you guys can go see an outdoor baseball game or even take a walk in a park. Either way it’s a perfect ending to any day!
