Romantic Beach Picnic

Summer is almost here! It's a great time to spend those lazy days with your boyfriend. Want to have fun without breaking the bank? Read on for our suggestions of fabulous summer dates — on the cheap!

Have a Picnic: Picnics are an awesome way to relax on a summer day. Pack some of your favorite foods from your mom's fridge, bring your iPod (with speakers), and enjoy spending one-on-one time together while soaking up the rays.

Ride Your Bikes: Bike rides are a great way to get outdoors and enjoy the day. Look for local trails and then you can have multiple daytime dates throughout the summer by riding them all!

Find a Drive-in Movie: These can be hard to come by but many towns still have drive-ins around the area. This is a great way to create a more unique experience to the standard movie date. Also, many times the drive-ins show double features for the price of one!

Hit the Museum: Museums might sound boring, but you'll be surprised how much fun it can be discussing works of art, or seeing limited-time-only exhibits! Some museums even have interactive exhibits for you and your guy to really get involved in. The best part? Most museums offer free days, late-night, or special prices for students!

Attend an Outdoor Concert: Check your local weekend guide because lots of parks and outdoor venues offer free concerts throughout the summer. Lots of times they're part of festivals and other fun events. If you want to spend a bit more money and see some of your favorite bands on tour this summer, outdoor concerts usually have lawn seats at much cheaper prices!

What’s your favorite summer activity? What summer dates are you most looking forward to planning?
