According to a myriad of books, films, songs, and musicals, summer is the season of love. Longer days, warmer weather, and seemingly fewer responsibilities somehow turn this season into the most romantic time of the year. But what would a summer fling be without the perfect dates to bring you and your S.O. closer together? With so many fun and adventurous activities to take part in during the summer, there should be no shortage of summer date ideas. If you're just getting to know each other, keep it simple with a picnic in the park, and if things are heating up, spend a weekend away together. At the end of the day, it doesn't matter what you do, as long as you do it together.
