Skate

Or bike, or rollerblade. There’s no good reason to stay indoors with your bae this summer. If it has wheels, get on and get rolling.

Beach

We saved the best for last. There’s no greater summer date than lounging on the sand and splashing in the waves. Stay on the beach until nighttime to watch the sun sink into the water. Sigh, so romantic!
