Every city comes alive during the summer with street festivals, state fairs, outdoor concerts, movies in the park, and other fun activities. These are easy date ideas if you want to enjoy what everything the summer season has to offer. Though most couples take advantage of the long, warm days of summer, there are also plenty of ways to beat the heat.

Summer sunsets are definitely romantic as they last the longest and the colors are the most intense. Grab a blanket and maybe a bottle of wine, and head to the park and find a clear view of the sky. You can even stay late to watch the stars.
