Outdoor activities are a great way to spend your first date. It gives your date the idea that you put effort into thinking about something more than the usual bar or cafe meet-up. The good thing about most outdoor activities as dates is, usually, they cost even less! Check out these 7 awesome outdoor activities you could totally woo her with!

You might think picnics are passé, but your date will really appreciate this little gesture! Bring out the old picnic basket and cook up some sweet picnic-ready dishes. Bring her to your favorite park or a beach near you and indulge. She’ll see that you’re not the regular jock type who just uses his money to woo a girl! Oh, and yes, women find picnics charming.

A food trip is going out to eat… but in different places. It’s technically considered as one of the outdoor activities you can do with your date! Plot out three different locations you’d like to eat at, and make sure it’s located outdoors! Go for a three-course meal – appetizer, entrée, and dessert.

Feeling a little adventurous? Take your date out to the theme park! Make it feel like you two are living out an 80’s date sequence. Bring her to your state fair and ride the roller coaster, traverse the haunted house, or take in the view from the Ferris Wheel. Win her a stuffed toy in the game you’re best at, and grab some cotton candy from the vendor.
Cap off the night by riding the carousel and bask in the glow of the yellow lightbulbs. Cliché? Yes, but she’ll definitely love the nostalgia of a theme park!
4. Work Out(side)
Here’s an excellent way to get your daily workout and have a date at the same time. Instead of hitting the gym, take a long, pleasant bike ride. Alternatively, you could take her out on the run in your favorite route, or you could go to the park and do yoga together.
It’s a proven fact that exercise produces endorphins, a feel-good chemical that makes us feel a bit lighter and happier. It’s certainly an advantage on a first date and will keep being a good idea no matter which stage of the relationship you’re in.
5. The Zoo
Show her your wild side… by taking her to the zoo! You can know a lot about someone by the animals they like. Does she like lions? Maybe she wants someone powerful around her. Pandas? You know it, she’s a cuddler. Does she like the giraffes? She’s a calm, docile creature who always keeps her chill. Besides that, you guys could also pull in lots of conversation time while you are watching the animals.
6. The Beach
Summer season or not, it’s always a good idea to go to the beach on a first date! Take off your shoes and feel the sand on your feet. Go for a romantic walk along the shore while talking about your fondest memories. The calming white noise of the waves crashing is a great way to get her to relax and feel a bit more open on your first date.
7. The Park
A park is indeed a great place for a first date. Even if you just plan to sit down and watch the world go by, it’s still an outdoor activity! Parks are often calm yet bustling with activity. Look around and see happy families having a great time and even use that to get to know more about her family. For added fun, bring a bottle of bubbly, a couple of glasses, and enjoy!
