Frugal & Fun Summer Date Ideas

Music, Movies & Entertainment, Nature & Weather, Seasonal & Current Events

Taking your date out for a memorable time doesn't have to mean an empty wallet for you. Here are some frugal and fun summer date ...

Long Island during the summer is a great time for romance. The weather is perfect for being outside, the beaches are open, and that carefree atmosphere is buzzing with the possibility of new love. This is a time to be taken advantage of, enjoy the extended summer hours, soak up the sunshine, and make the most of this time while it’s still here.

The Island has so much to offer when it comes to activities and thing to do. The only problem is that some of the activities can quickly accumulate a steep price tag. So, instead of paying top dollar for a dinner for two at a 5 star restaurant, or taking your date to see a big name concert at the Nikon Theater, why not surprise your date with one of these fun, unique date ideas that won’t empty out your wallet.

Mini-Road Trip to the Montauk Lighthouse What better way to get to know your date than on a nice long car ride together to visit the oldest lighthouse in New York State. You’ll have plenty of time to get to know one another better and play some traditional road trip games.

Go Fly a Kite – Go out to one of Long Island’s many beautiful beaches and watch your kites soar above the sand. Even if you don’t have a kite, head to a store like Target or Walmart, they sell them there for a very low price. Just remember to fly them in the less populated areas, that way if the kite comes plummeting down no one will be hurt.

Set Up a Picnic Spread at a Local Park – Grab a blanket and a basket, fill it up with lots of yummy food and drinks, and spend a day in the sunshine at a local park together enjoying a nice meal, chatting, and people watching.

Spend the Night Stargazing – Head out to the Custer Observatory in Southold to take a closer look up at the night sky. From May through August the observatory is open from 9 p.m. to midnight. Make sure you go on a dark, non-hazy, cloud free night to get the best view.

Act Like Kids Again – Have some nostalgic fun doing activities that are more geared towards kids. Visit the antique Carousel in the town of Greenport and take a spin on the horses while you try to grab the brass rings. If you do you get a free ride!

What are some fun and frugal Long Island summer date ideas you’ve come up with?
