10 natural date ideas

Need date ideas? Couples that play, together stay together. But seriously…how good is it to explore nature with someone you love? The fresh air. The shared memories. The getting lost and then finding your way again. The unplanned moments of bliss. Outdoor adventures are so great, for so many reasons.

Here are 5 reasons why we think nature dates are better:

They’re pretty much free
They’re a thoughtful alternative to ‘dinner and a movie’
They’re visually inspiring
They’re good exercise
You can actually get to know each other
