Spring is in full swing, and just as trees are budding with flowers, so too are we – budding with excitement to leave winter behind. Warm weather and outdoor adventures await, and here are a few springtime date ideas to usher in the new season.

  1. Plan a picnic. Prep some yummy snacks, grab a blanket and head to your favorite park to relax, read, enjoy the sun and converse with your date. You can even have a picnic in your backyard.

  2. Have a spa day. Shake off the winter cobwebs by getting pampered together, starting with a couples massage or facial. You’ll both emerge bright and shiny, ready for a night on the town (or a good snuggle).

  3. Go for a bike ride. Bike trails and bike lanes abound in Atlanta, making this a fun and safe activity. If you don’t have a bike (or want to rent a two-seater), check out Skate Escape.

  4. Sign up for a mud run or color run. Perfect time to get messy and share some laughs. You’ll bond together as a team in these kinds of events and can toast your victory afterwards.

  5. Ride the Ferris wheel. Have you ridden SkyView Atlanta yet? Pretty cool views, worth a ride. Have dinner or drinks afterward at one of downtown’s nearby restaurants.

  6. Relax at Chateau Elan. Looking for a touch of Europe without the plane ticket? Whisk your date to Chateau Elan in North Georgia for luxury accommodations, a winery, spa, golf course and more.

  7. Browse a garden. Plants are relaxing and beautiful and can melt away the rigors of the week. Plan a visit to Gibbs Gardens, Paradise Gardens, the State Botanical Garden, Callaway Gardens, or Atlanta Botanical Garden, for example, to spend time in green spaces cultivated by experts.

Or take a different approach and find the perfect outdoor Atlanta adventure for you and your significant other. See you outside!
