Dates don’t have to happen in the evening 🌚
If you’re tired of the same “drinks and dinner?” plans, let’s step up your day dating game, so you can create a connection and have fun in the sunshine.
High-level, day date ideas are similar to night date ideas, in that the best dates will:
Five of my favorite daytime date ideas are below 👇
Food, fun, fascination…
Your weekly farmer’s market checks all the boxes for awesome day date ideas!
If you’re not a frequent Farmer’s Market goer already, hit Google to find farmer’s markets in your area that you would be keen to check out 🔎
Farmer’s markets are excellent day date ideas because:
Also… where else could you discover you share a deep love for artisanal goat’s cheese, or niche Japanese winter squash varieties?! 😜
Coffee shops make perfect day date ideas because they are relaxed, great for spending quality time with someone, and often serve up interesting and delicious beverages 😋
Worried that a coffee shop is too simple and unimpressive for a date?
Don’t! That’s exactly the point.
Coffee shops are great places to have an authentic conversation with someone new, without all of the pretension of a fancier restaurant or event.
Still, choose a coffee shop that feels different, and fits the vibe of a date 🥰
(Starbucks probably isn’t it.)
Find a new concept coffee shop with a fun vibe inside, or take her to your usual day time hang so she gets to experience your favorite coffee spot!
Feel like your date won’t be romantic enough without wine?
A great day date idea for those romantic winos is to spend the day at a winery.
You can explore all the beautiful aspects of the winery together:
Wineries are definitely on the fancier side of day dates but that doesn’t make them inherently good or bad locations.
If you like the idea of a winery, choose one that fits the vibe of your date (if in doubt, err on the casual side), and have fun!
I’m a firm believer that couples who work out together, stay together.
(My fiancé and I met at Barry’s Bootcamp in San Francisco, and still go together several times a week!)
Fitness is an amazing way to bond with your date if you both enjoy exercising 💪
Workout classes are particularly good date ideas because you’ll get your endorphins up together, and finish the date feeling amazing.
Check out a local HIIT class, yoga, or simply plan to take a walk or a hike.
Running in the park, playing volleyball, or hiking are all great day date ideas that will show your date you care about your health and fitness 🏃♀️
And you can 100% grab food or drinks together after!
Vintage shopping, thrifting, and antiquing can be adventurous and fun day date ideas.
I’m a huge fan because:
📍 Vintaging as a day date idea is especially fun in cities where there are strong options for vintage and antique shopping.
To make this epic day date idea reality, Google to learn if there is an antique or flea market that you can explore together.
Day dates are great ways to make your dating feel, well, brighter!
Show your date a fantastic time with these day date ideas she’ll never forget, and have fun.
