Valentine’s Day may be a day of love, but springtime is a whole season of romance. Now it’s time to get out from under your winter blankets and have fun in the finest season of the year. Spring is also a great time to enjoy a wider range of possibilities for dates now that you’re not limited to indoor spaces.

So it’s time to enjoy the great weather by going on a romantic date. We gathered up 5 romantic date ideas for you:

1. Picnic

Now that the clouds are not dampening your mood and the weather, it’s time to enjoy the sunshine and nature with a nice picnic. It’s a great low-key set-up to get to know your date or spend some quality time with your significant other. It doesn’t have to be in an isolated place, you can even go to a public park. If you’re not great in the kitchen, there are restaurants that will make you a great picnic basket with everything you need. So you can enjoy a romantic date without too many eyes on you.

2. Ferris Wheel

It’s hard to disconnect from your everyday lives. But a Ferris wheel is a great way to get a sense of being together, alone, and disconnected from the outside world. You can imagine how great it is, you and your date sitting alone together on top of the world. Plus, a lot of cities have a Ferris wheel with a great view of the city, so the two of you can enjoy seeing your city bloom in the springtime.

3. Nature

What better way to enjoy the season with your date, than to see and experience it. There are so many ways in which you can enjoy nature and spring blossom in your immediate or not-so-immediate environment. You can take your date on a nice stroll in a park, or for the more adventurous, you can go hiking together. Botanical gardens are a great way to set up a romantic, flowery mood and enjoy the unique flowers and plants of the season. If there is a river or a lake nearby, a nice cruise can be a very romantic way to enjoy springtime together.

4. Drinks and cuisine with beautiful views

If you or your date is not outdoor sports activities kind of person, there is a great alternative: bars or restaurants overlooking the city or nature. A lot of places have restaurants on the upper floors of tall buildings, high mountains, or on cliff edges. These are perfect locations for a romantic spring date. Whether you’re taking your date to lunch, dinner, or just drinks, you can enjoy a stunning view of the city from up high, or just enjoy nature’s best without any effort. A great view is a great set-up for a romantic date.

5. Explore your city

People always say that the best way to know a person is to go on a vacation with them. A more convenient alternative is to simply explore the place where you live. Many cities around the world offer free walking tours or similar options. This is a great way to explore the city that you live in and see it in a new light with someone else. You can also prepare something similar, but lighter yourself. Take your date to explore the city with a new take on it, go to that great new restaurant that everyone’s been talking about, or just for a walk in a newly renovated area. Creating happy and fun new experiences together is a great way to start a relationship or strengthen that one that you have.

Now that you have some great ideas for your date, it’s time to put them to practice and enjoy a romantic date in the best season of the year. Check out our updated list of the best dating sites in the UK by clicking here.
