Summer Date Ideas

Picnic in a field

When was the last time you went on a date? Whether you’re looking to be fun or to treat your significant other to a romantic evening, the summer is the perfect time for a date! It can be difficult to figure out what to do, which is why we’ve decided to share some summer date ideas in this week’s Wildwood Park Apartments Blog. There’s plenty to do here in Arlington, VA, so we hope these tips will help you think of things to do!

Watch an Outdoor Movie

If you and your significant other love movies, what better date is there than enjoying a nice movie outdoors? Ideally, you can find an establishment hosting an outdoor movie, but if you aren’t able to, the least you could do is procure a projector to watch a movie on. Get yourself a comfortable spot, preferably on grass, and break out all of the pillows and blankets to set the mood! After all of that, pick a romantic movie and you’ll be all set!.

Pack a Picnic

Because the weather is nice, we recommend taking full advantage of it by packing a picnic! You probably haven’t been on a picnic in a while, so it’s time to do so! Pack delicious handheld food like sandwiches or wraps and don’t forget the side dishes. Find a spot near some shade and have yourself a romantic day!


Sometimes simplicity is the key to a successful date, which is why we believe that stargazing is a great activity for a date! It may be difficult to find a good spot near the city, so try venturing out into the more rural areas of the city, far from the city lights.
