Long Island during the spring is a great time for romance. Besides the virus...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 spring 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 things to do. The only problem is that some of the activities can be surrounded with people. So, why not surprise your date with one of these fun, unique date ideas that will keep you two cozy and alone.

Netflix and Chill – Go catch the latest flick on Netflix. They have so many new Netflix movies to watch. And of course...POPCORN!

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.

Play Board Games – What better way to stay away from the outdoors than playing board games and getting competitive on date night!

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 closest beach and bring blankets, or lay out in your own backyard. Make sure you go on a dark, non-hazy, cloud free night to get the best view.

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.
