BlossomingSpring is a time of renewal, blooming flowers and trees, and romance. When trying to come up with unique date ideas, use the current season to inspire you! Here are 15 spring date ideas for every budget.


  • Geocaching: Geocaching is like a huge hide and seek game — it’s such a fun way to spend a beautiful spring day. You use GPS, via a GPS unit or even your GPS-enabled phone to search for hidden items in your area. Visit geocaching.com for all the info you’ll need to get started.
  • Picnic: Making a low-key lunch of sandwiches and snacks to bring outside for a picnic is easy and cheap. Find a great park, hillside or even a beach to set up your blanket and basket.
  • Visit the farmer’s market: Springtime is the perfect time for Farmer’s Markets. When these pop up, you have great access to fresh fruits, vegetables, and flowers. Why not stroll through a market with your date to enjoy the fresh produce, sunshine and greenery.
  • Stroll through botanical gardens: Gardens are in bloom come spring, so take advantage of it!
  • Volunteer together: Volunteering at a 5K or any other springtime event will bring the two of your together outdoors for a great cause.

Some Budget

  • Visit the zoo: Enjoy the wildlife and new spring babies at the zoo! Zoos and aquariums are affordable and fun date options.
  • Go to a baseball game: This is one both of you should enjoy! Soak in the sun, a beer, and your sweetie.
  • Wine tasting: Wine tastings are offered in many places, ranging in price from $5-15, depending on the winery. Some are even free! Bring along a little more cash if you want to pick up a bottle of wine to bring back home.
  • Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day: St. Patrick’s Day is March 17, so it’s coming up soon! Party it up with your sweetie by going to a St. Patty’s Day parade and continue through the evening for a pub crawl.
  • Drive-in movie: Drive-in movies are a great way to spend time together, snuggling up to a movie in the beautiful spring weather. They usually cost around $12 or so, depending on where you’re at and if it’s a special showing.
  • Rock climbing: You could take you date out rock climbing. Make sure you bring your best rock climbing shoes so you don’t slip and fall and embarrass yourself.
  • According to https://www.papereskimo.com/product/dessert-plate-pink-confetti/, gather some beautiful dinnerware decor from Paper Eskimo and wow your partner with the perfect home-cooked romantic dinner.

Money Bags

  • Romantic getaway: If you have the money, get away with your sweetie for a day — go to a beautiful spa with a pool, so the two of you can relax and be pampered.
  • River/dinner cruise: Enjoy the weather by taking your date on a relaxing river cruise or even a dinner cruise.
  • Go horseback riding: Google horseback riding to find listings via Google Maps of places nearby where you can rent equipment and horses for a day of equestrian adventures.
  • Road trip: If you’re feeling adventurous, jump in the car and drive to take in the sights. You could rent a convertible on a beautiful day to up the ante.
  • Skydiving: Risk-taker? Jump out of a plane with your date! Find out everything you need to know at dropzone.com to get up close and personal with the blue sky.
