1. Picnic in the park

This is a summer date night classic. Grab a blanket, a bottle of wine and some cheese and crackers. For a fun spin on the classic picnic, go old school and make a playlist of all the songs that were popular when you were in high school and bring your favourite childhood candy.

2. Volunteer at an animal shelter

What better way to bond than by taking care of some cute animals at your local shelter. Often shelters get busy, so call up and book a time to come in to volunteer.

3. Go biking

Trade in four wheels for two and discover new places in your neighbourhood. FInd a restaurant you’ve always wanted to go and bike there instead of driving or taking transit. As you cycle along with the summer breeze in your hair, you will feel like you are the star of your own rom-com.

1. Drive-In movies

This is a classic spin on going to the movies. Pack a picnic and bring a blanket in case it gets cold.

2. Fruit picking

Get outside and to your local “pick your own” strawberry, raspberry or blueberry patch. Once you’ve picked as many berries as you can carry then make some jam or a pie when you get home!

3. Have a camp-out

The best part about the summer? Camping! Going camping doesn’t have to be an elaborate trip that takes weeks of planning. Find a campground close to your house or set a tent up in your own backyard and have a cheeky weekend of camping at home!

1. Attend a Minor League Baseball Game

Minor league baseball (MILB) is a really fun and a cheaper alternative to splashing out on a major league game. Tickets usually go for about $16.00. Factor in a couple of beers and a hot dog and it’s a relatively inexpensive ball game!

2. Get on the water

On a hot summer day, nothing beats the heat better than getting in the water! Rent some kayaks or a canoe and head out for a beautiful day on the lake! Then jump in after for a refreshing end to the day!

3. Rent a cabin

Cozy up for the weekend at a cabin by the lake. Depending on your budget, go away for either a night or two. Get food to bbq and some wine and you’re all set for a peaceful weekend away.
