10 Free and Frugal Summer Date Ideas

Are you and your hubby strapped for cash but not ready to sacrifice the romance? These awesome date night ideas are perfect for summer so soak them up while you have the chance!

Go To A Museum

Museums are an awesome date idea. Not only do you get to spend time with your loved one, you also get to experience the romance and beauty of the artwork. Although tickets to most museums usually aren't too expensive, some can even be free! Take a look in your area to see what deals you can find.

Have a Picnic

Grab your blankets, picnic basket and some scrumptious wine for a lovely date out in the park. Soak in the sun, listen to the sweet sounds of the chirping birds, and relax with your partner for a frugal experience that will surely be memorable.

Host A Game Night

Want the perfect date night without leaving the house? Pull out the scrabble and get to gaming! If you don’t have any good games at home, try heading over to your local Goodwill where you can find them for just a few dollars.

Go Camping

No need to splurge on a fancy hotel room. Instead, spend a romantic evening under the stars with your significant other. Campsites can range from $5-$30, but if you camp on some BLM land, it won’t even cost you a dime.

Check Out The Neighborhood Farmers Market

Weekends are great for taking a stroll outside and checking out all of the awesome goods at your local the Farmers Market. Take your partner on your journey and pick up some delicious food to have an intimate home cooked meal at home.

Build A Fort

Who says that forts are only for kids? Push the couches together, pile on the pillows and blankets and curl up while streaming your favorite movies. Talk about a perfect date night!

Head To The State or Country Fair

Summer is a great time for State and County Fairs. Grab your partner, eat some home cooked chili, and share a kiss at the top of the ferris wheel!

Go On A Taco Tour

You don’t need an expensive candlelit dinner to show your partner how much you care. Instead, go around town trying the best tacos in your city! Not only is this a cheap dinner idea, you can make an adventure out of it too.

Hit The Arcade

If you like games, head to one of your local arcade bars during Happy Hour. You and your hubby can pair off and compete for tickets and awesome prizes.

Have An At-Home Spa Night

Having an at-home spa day is the perfect way to relax with you and your loved one without breaking the bank. Put on some home made masks, draw a bubble bath and top it off with relaxing back massages.
