Matchmaking service in Fort Worth, Dallas and Fort Worth Singles, dishes out ideas to enjoy the last days of summer fun and romance!
At a loss of what to do this upcoming weekend? Summer is over just yet, so it’s the perfect time to wrap it up with some fun outdoor activities before fall sets in; after all, during the dreaded winter months, it’s not always so easy to find cool things to do. Whether it’s with your seasoned partner or someone you’re just starting to see, these date ideas from our Fort Worth matchmakers here at Dallas and Fort Worth Singles Dating Service will work perfectly to spice things up.
1. Visit a Local Winery
The truth is, this date idea might not be available in every region, but a local boutique brewery can be just as fun. When you take your date to a local winery or brewery you’ll get to enjoy a lot of different wines or beers together and you’ll learn a lot in the process. The fee for these types of events should only run between $5-25 per person; a good price for a good time. You can also purchase a few bottles of wine to take home and enjoy on a later date. Many wineries and breweries offer food too, so you can order your favorite glass of wine and sit outside in the shade while enjoying the company of your date, good food, and maybe even the perfect view.
2. Ride the Rides at an Amusement Park
Whether it’s a local country fair or a huge amusement park, throw on your shorts, fill up your water bottle, and spend the entire day eating your favorite greasy fair foods and running around enjoying the rides and fun like young kids. You can indulge in a few of your favorite fair games and if you’re able to pop enough balloons or hook the fish, you might be able to win a cute little gift to give your date. Maybe you’ll win a gold fish or perhaps an oversized stuffed animal. The prices are not what they used to be, but you’ll have so much fun you won’t even mind! What matters here is letting your inner child come out—laughing, giggling, and having a fun day to remember.
3. Board Games
Play cards, Scrabble, or Yahtzee. Pack a cooler with your favorite beer or wine spritzers and head to the back deck or a local park to play games all afternoon. Sometimes, spending the entire afternoon with a deck of cards is more fun than going out on the town, especially when the weather is nice. Your charming date, a few delicious snacks, and your favorite music playing on your iPod and you have the recipe for a perfect afternoon or evening for two.
4. Ride Your Bikes on a Trail
Many cities have bike trails that provide a great outdoor date idea for summer. Generally, these bike trails are beautifully maintained and great views of the city and nature. Use this opportunity to ride your bike endlessly, but don’t forget to pack some lunch or waters to refuel for the ride back.
5. Dinner Al Fresco at Your Favorite Food Truck
Take a walk through a nearby neighborhood or city and look for the best gourmet food truck they have to offer. Miniature burgers, pierogies, and spring rolls all the way to BBQ ribs and fish tacos; you can literally have it all. You might even find some yummy homemade ice-cream. Did someone say wine-flavored ice-cream cookie sandwiches? You can literally have it all. Have you ever watched the movie, Chef? If not, you will never look at a food truck the same way you once did.
6. Go to a Theater in the Park
Whether you live in the city or a rural area, outdoor theaters are now everywhere. Yes, they’re everywhere. Many places offer their summer shows in local parks. Shakespeare in the park is something very popular in New York, Baltimore, Portland, and even right here in Dallas. If you get the hang of it, you can check out the different types of productions they offer. Throw in your favorite picnic foods and have the perfect afternoon for two. Oh, and don’t forget to bring your favorite bottle of champagne.
7. Go Fishing
Some male readers are probably like, “Yes, that’s exactly what I’m talking about, “while the ladies out there might be thinking, “Do I really have to do this?” Well, everyone hang tight, don’t rule it out just yet. Even if you are not a fishing expert, nothing is more relaxing than being outside in a serene setting. If you are not any good, you can always take a fly fishing class or rent a couple of poles and practice on your own. You don’t even have to rent them, just borrow some from your friends or neighbors and head to the nearest lake, river, or stream around Fort Worth or Dallas.
8. Head Out to a Ball Game
What screams summer more than America’s favorite pastime? Whether you are a fanatic or a newbie, baseball can be a fun game to watch. If you’re struggling to find tickets to a major league game, don’t worry. We recommend you to go to a minor league game; after all, their stadiums are smaller, the food is great, and it’s a lot cheaper if you’re watching your budget. There is more than just major league, so don’t be afraid to get out and explore what the city has to offer. There are teams playing every week, it’s all up to you to find what’s going on near you. But whether it’s a major league game or a minor league one, spending a sunny afternoon out in the stands makes for the perfect summer date.
9. Visit a Festival
Everyone knows that summer means festival time. Big cities, small towns, and everything in between, they all seem to have their own unique festivals during the summer months. Whether it’s food related, music, or even crafts, you’re bound to find something that catches your fancy. There is plenty to do, plenty to see, tons to drink and eat, and an experience you will not forget.
So who said that summer was supposed to be spent inside in the AC? As you can tell, you can have a magical time during the summer months. So get out there and put one of these great date ideas from our Fort Worth matchmakers to good use because summer is soon coming to an end!
