26 Outdoor Date Ideas That Are More Fun Than Netflix-and-Chilling

Movie marathons, ordering your favorite takeout, and game night are all easy date-night solutions, but they can make you feel a bit cooped up. You can Netflix and chill or order in any day of the week, but getting outside and enjoying the beautiful sunny weather or fall foliage? Those days are extra special. So save your movie night for another date and start planning your next outdoor adventure with your special someone.

During the warmer months, you can look forward to kayaking, bike rides, outdoor sports, and concerts. As the leaves begin to change, lean into autumnal outdoor activities, such as apple picking or visiting a pumpkin patch. Winter might seem like the ideal time to plan a cozy date night inside, but it's actually the perfect time to marvel at Mother Nature; plus, there are so many outdoor activities - sledding, snowball fights, and Christmas light shows - that you definitely don't want to miss out on.

There are also outdoor date ideas like hiking, strolls through the park, and watching the sunrise and sunset that you can enjoy year-round - for free! We aren't ones to turn down cheap date ideas, and if they take place outdoors, you can definitely count us in. These outdoor date ideas will help you get out of any date rut you might be in and get excited to step out of the house and embrace the great outdoors.
