You could surprise your partner with this, or plan it together. Bring a blanket, finger foods (berries, raw vegetables with dip, chips, shrimp, pieces of fruit, etc.), a tape or CD player with batteries and romantic music, your favorite drinks and fly repellent. Great places for picnics are secluded fields, beaches at sunset, beside a lake or pond or under a tree. If you want to suprise your partner, set up the picnic ahead of time and ask your partner to go for a walk with you, make sure the walk leads to your picnic and let him or her discover your treat.
I live in a city where the “World Famous Reversing Falls” is located. I don’t know if it is really “World Famous” but all my life I’ve driven by it quite frequently…it wasn’t until two summers ago that I actually went and visited it from a tourist’s perspective. Something I’ve done in the past is to call the local tourist bureau and ask for ideas of places to go, they can be very helpful.
If you don’t have your own rollerblades there are places where you can rent them by the hour. Call a sports store and inquire about this, they may know the number to call.
Unless you know someone with horses you will probably have to go on a guided ride…you won’t get privacy but it is still fun.
Depending on where you live there might be places that rent cabins by the night. The cabins usually have fireplaces, nearby lakes (to fish in, swim in or canoe in) and nature trails.
Yes, “together”. What a great way to bond, you can talk about your day, or anything for that matter, and even play with your food. Mix up some cake batter and lick it off each other’s fingers.
Not familiar with this game? You take turns asking each other: “Truth, Dare, Double Dare?”, the other person picks one. If they pick “truth” you get to ask one question that they have to answer, if they pick “dare” you dare them to do something, and double dare means that you both have to do whatever is chosen as a dare. This is only limited by your imagination, for extra creativity you can add consequences…if one of you won’t do the dare or answer the question then you suffer whatever (fun) consequence you’ve come up with ahead of time.
Try “Chicken Soup for the Couple’s Soul“, or any of the Chicken Soup books for that matter.
You could shop, sightsee or visit friends.
This means no tent or tarp over you head.
If you don’t have a canoe, many camp grounds will rent them out. Exploring islands is very fun!
These are fun with a group of friends or you can have a private barbeque for two.
Then go home and make a pie.
