40+ Best Couple's Date Ideas for Spring

1. Start a new family tradition

To begin, think about what you love doing together and what you want to get accomplished.

Maybe you love to cook or paint or play games together. You could begin a new tradition in your family. If you're married, talk about what you'd like to accomplish. 

Or, a simple, but lasting tradition is to make a spring photo of the two of you or the whole family. It could be a photo near a sightseeing spot, or maybe in funny costumes - imagination is the limit here.

2. Indulge in some luxury

Make the effort to plan a date night or weekend getaway that’s special just for you. This is the time when you want to take advantage of your newly found freedom from responsibilities to enjoy the finer things in life.

This will show your partner that you really do care about them and love them and that you value their company over all others. Plus, this will make for a fun and memorable date night!

Some ideas would be to go to a fancy restaurant, visit an outdoor concert, or go for a ride in an expensive ride.

3. Learn something new

Spring is the time when nature is learning to blossom again, so this might be the time to do some learning yourself. And why not do it with your partner in the form of a date?

Whether you are studying something related to your profession, hobby, or lifestyle, you can create a more enriching experience by having heartfelt conversations and taking turns giving each other advice and tips. 

Make the most out of your dates by learning new skills together, or learning more about each other.

4. Do a food crawl

Food crawls are a nice way to have fun and meet new people in your community. Begin a food crawl to celebrate spring in your city, town, or even your neighborhood.

There are no rules to a food crawl; it’s just a fun way to spend a Saturday afternoon and get your creative juices flowing.

Pick an area in your city that you’ve never explored and head there for a walk down memory lane, trying regional flavors, sampling new wines, and enjoying the sunshine.

Why this is amazing, particularly in spring? Because it is the time when many outdoor cafeterias and food vendors open and quite often provide new, exciting foods to try out

5. Hit the road

Springtime is the time of year to travel and hit the road. Travel can give us a fresh perspective on ourselves, and on life in general.

For an idyllic getaway, head to one of your nearest national parks. There are some really unique, breathtaking spots there, and most importantly, the weather will be spectacular.

6. Travel as a couple

There is something special about taking a long, picturesque vacation with your significant other. We all get swept away by the thought of traveling, right?

You can still experience all of that and do it on a budget. With the rise of the sharing economy, you can now book almost any travel service without having to worry about tipping.

From the cheapest flight to a luxury resort, you can get the most amazing experiences at affordable prices this season.

Even if you’re only able to afford a day trip, you can still do a lot of sightseeing together, and you can share the memories for years to come.

7. Play card games

If you and your partner wish to spend fun, and maybe sexy time together, playing relationship games together is an awesome way to spend some time together and reconnect.

If romance is something you are looking for, then the sweet games might be for you, but if you wish to have a spicy date night, then the sexy games are the right pick.

8. Play a sport

Spring is the time to get out of the house, so why not go for a sporty date?

It's one of the best ways to exercise your brain (plus you get to work up a sweat). Playing sports will help you bond with your date, and you'll also learn something new.

When you play together you'll both have fun and expand your knowledge about the other person. If you wish to do something non-competitive, try jogging, or swimming. But if you like to keep score, then tennis, golf, basketball, or volleyball might be for you.

It is always a good idea to be active, but especially so in spring.

9. Be spontaneous

One of the best ways to show your love for someone is to surprise them. Whether you take them on a lovely date or a family lunch, spring is an amazing time for something unexpected and fun.

Check the weather forecast before heading out, and if it looks good, pick a destination that makes the most sense. For example, you could visit your favorite museum, a new restaurant, or a neighborhood park with a pretty view.

And then - go there together!

10. Head to a festival

Have some party outdoors!

Festivals, fairs, and community events are great ways to appreciate the warm weather. They offer a lot of opportunities for weekend fun and good times, as well as educational and entertaining opportunities. 

You can find out about upcoming festivals in your area, and plan ahead for a visit. Look around at the activities and events happening in your community. 

Festivals are a great way to explore what is happening in your town and get a taste of the culture.

11. Explore the arts

Make the most of spring and summer with these creative date ideas that put culture and education front and center.

Art festivals, classes, workshops, and exhibits are all terrific ways to celebrate springtime, expand your creative side, and kick off summer with your lover. 

You can even create a masterpiece together. Go to an art event and create something beautiful together!

12. Discover a hidden gem

If you and your partner don’t love to dine and drink together, then skip this idea. But if you do, then these days, there’s no excuse for an intimate date that doesn’t include food and wine.

If you’re looking to surprise your partner, then the best way to do that is to plan an adventure of a date rather than a date of an adventure. 

Take advantage of the fact that spring is a nice time to explore new locations, for example, a locally favorite winery.

13. Check out a museum

If you and your partner have been together for a while and are looking for some ideas on what to do, check out a museum!

Museums have some of the best date ideas for spring because museums allow you to see art and nature at their best, especially if they have an outdoor exhibition.

Whether it's a small museum or a large one, there's bound to be something that interests you. Take the time to explore your options and have a wonderful date.

14. See a live concert 

If you are looking for inexpensive and fun ideas to spend some time together, spring is a nice time to hit up one of your local clubs to enjoy some live entertainment.

Whether you’re looking for a space to go dancing or just a nice relaxing evening of music, a little bit of culture never hurt anyone.

15. Visit a local food truck

There are many ways to impress a new significant other. This season, we suggest a unique and fun date for springtime: a visit to a local food truck with your sweetie.

Food trucks are popping up across the country. These mobile eateries often serve delicious, fresh fare and offer a fast and fun alternative to traditional dining venues.

From pizza to burgers, hot dogs to tacos, there are endless food choices for any taste. So why not try something new?

16. Enjoy a sunset cruise

There’s nothing better than enjoying the beauty of nature while you can, so book a few hours and take a cruise with your loved one.

It’s the ideal way to begin a delightful getaway date that’s full of surprises and adventure.

Start off with a glass of wine or your favorite cocktail in the sunshine before embarking on the scenic cruise. Get ready to unwind as the sun sets over the ocean.

If a cruise is not for you, then just going for a walk on the beach while the sun sets, will be a good idea too.

17. Go hiking

If you’re looking for a great date idea, why not take a walk in nature together?

Hiking is a great activity for couples to do together; it’s low impact, it allows for plenty of bonding time, and it’s great for your relationship.

Spring is a time to appreciate the outdoors, and hiking is a wonderful opportunity to spend time together in the fresh air and sunshine.

18. Get to the beach

What better way to begin a new day than getting to the beach with your love on a lovely spring day?

Not only is it a great way to begin your day, but it also puts you in the mood for your honey’s special day. Make sure you have fun and take time to spend some quality time together.

19. Learn to cook

Do you want to surprise your loved one this spring? Learn how to cook with your partner on this date.

Pick a recipe that’s easy to prepare, or that you can do together. The more you can do as a couple, the better! You can even plan the menu before you head to the grocery store.

If you already are a master in the kitchen then prepare something spectacular and spring-themed.

20. Discover the world's best dish

Do you have a favorite meal that you both love? If not, then this is the perfect way to explore new places to eat and to see if you can find a spot in your area.

Go to your nearest farmers market or foodie hot spot and sample some amazing fresh foods and wine. You can also check the wine lists for ideas of where to go.

Make spring delicious!

21. Build a treasure chest

There are several ways to approach this activity. You can make a box full of your memorabilia and then dig it up to revisit it for years to come.

Or you can each take 5 mystery things that remind you of love for each other. 

This is an ideal way to incorporate a little bit of mystery and excitement into your relationship. 

22. Do a photo scavenger hunt

If you’ve ever participated in one of those photo scavenger hunts, that will get you started.

If not, don't worry - a great idea is to start by trying this out in your own house. Take a few photographs of spots in your house and then hide the clues there. Let your partner find them.

Or if you’re really committed then up the ante by taking this outside. It will take some preparation, but in the end, will be a fun date idea.

23. Take a romantic walk

Simple yet powerful - a romantic walk can be a truly nice date. The beauty of it - everyone can do it.

Take a walk in nature. Whether it’s walking up a hill or taking a stroll along the lake, there are so many things to like about walking. 

The sun’s out, the birds are chirping, the flowers are blooming and the fresh air feels good. Not only can you have some quality time together, but you can also talk and laugh about the day’s events, too!

24. Make time for one-on-one time

Spring is all about renewal, new beginnings, and fresh starts. The air is warmer, the leaves are beginning to come back, and flowers are blooming.

Spring is a perfect time to make plans to get away, spend quality time with your loved one, and take on a new and exciting adventure together.

25. Treat yourself to an indulgence

This week, treat your significant other to something new that they've always wanted but have been too afraid to buy for themselves, like a new car or vacation. 

When you do, you'll be treating them to a special gift that they'll never forget and your relationship will benefit, too.

26. A Romantic Dinner at a Restaurant

The best date ideas for spring need to take into consideration all three components: romance, food, and entertainment. 

A great restaurant for a romantic dinner will add more than just flavor to your evening. It'll also bring some ambiance to the table. So don't be afraid to give some thought to the setting of your date.

27. An Outdoor Movie

Movies are a wonderful idea, but nothing says “love in springtime” like watching one outside in the grass, under the stars with a blanket or two.

Choose something romantic such as “500 Days of Summer,” “Pitch Perfect” or “You’ve Got Mail.” Also, you can choose a comedy and watch a classic film (such as “The Notebook”) later if you get tired. 

If you have a near outdoor movie theater, you can go there, but if not - another idea is to take your laptop to your garden or a park. Just remember to charge it beforehand.

28. Strolling Through Old Town

If you’re looking for something fun to do with your special someone, why not take a walk through the old town squares and check out all the lovely flowers in bloom?

29. Exploring an Urban Park

Parks are becoming ever more popular with city residents, who are flocking to green spaces in droves. But the trend doesn’t necessarily apply to all parks.

Some are still relatively unknown gems, but many others – especially those within urban areas – are more well-known spots. 

With spring right around the corner, take advantage of warmer weather and the fresh air in these parks by packing up picnic baskets and having some fun

30. Shopping for Art

Shopping for art with your significant other can be a lot of fun. You can find some art/design pieces for your home, or just browse some art galleries just to wander in the world of art. 

There are so many great things about having a date night out with your partner. 

Not only is it a chance to bond over a fun activity, but it’s also a time where you can really get a good feel for each other’s tastes and preferences. 

Shopping for art together is a great way to get a glimpse into that side of each other. It allows you to see if you are compatible in a deeper way than just how you choose to spend your free time.

31. A Tour of a big City

The White House is among the most popular building in the US with a lot of history surrounding it. 

From the beautiful interior design to the history of the building and its impact on our government, a tour is a perfect opportunity to learn new things about each other, and explore some of the most interesting places in Washington D.C.

So, plan a trip to the White House to take you back in time and allow you to relive moments you haven’t thought of in a long time, so don’t hesitate to plan a special day out there and share the memories.

To escape the hustle and bustle of city life, head out to the countryside for some fun and adventure. 

Get away from all the noise and bustle to enjoy some farm-to-table dining with your sweetheart.
