Summer Date Activities

If you’re looking for something to do on a nice summer evening, why not go on a date? Whether you’re dating someone, married, or just looking to have some fun, a date can be a good way to pass time and have some fun! In this week’s Willington Lakes Blog, we’ve got a few summer date ideas to get your creative juices flowing!

A Picnic

Check the weather to find a day that’s going to have beautiful weather, then, plan and pack a picnic basket full of delicious treats and goodies! Make sure that you’re packing finger foods and foods that don’t require containers or tupperware just to make it easier on yourself, like sandwiches or wraps. Once you’re all packed, pick a nice park to have your picnic and have some fun enjoying the beautiful weather here in Orangeburg, SC.


Sometimes, the best dates are the dates that you don’t have to spend any money on. Such is the case with stargazing. All you need to do is drive out to a place where the lights of the city aren’t affecting your view of the stars. This date can be considered more romantic, so keep that in mind before you invite someone on this date. Even though it’s the summer, remember to bring a set of blankets and warm clothing! It’s going to get cold and you don’t want to risk getting sick. 

Make Some Ice Cream

Since the weather is warm, a fun date can be making a treat that will keep you cool during the warm summer days. Many people think that making ice cream is difficult, but with the right equipment, it’s a cinch. The hardest part is figuring out what type of ice cream you want to make! It’s a date where you can experiment, have fun, and have something to eat at the end of the date! The best part? You don’t have to leave your apartment!
