Summer weather is almost here and that means its time to turn off Netflix, get off the couch and go have some fun! That’s right, no more snow. You don’t have to stay inside!! But what should you do? Well here’s a few of my favorite date night ideas on the Seacoast!
1. Beach + boardwalk
There’s nothing more quintessential than strolling the boardwalk with your special someone. Hampton Beach is sure to give you that classic experience and more. Let your inner kid free in the arcade, indulge in some fried dough and don’t forget to catch the fireworks on the beach every Wednesday night!
2. Share some laughs
Laughter is the best medicine and a great ice breaker! Check the schedule at local venues like the Casino Ballroom in Hampton to see what comedians are in town this summer. Then grab your hunny and get giggling!
3. Go scootin’ around
This is perfect for a warm summer evening or day-date. Put on your helmet, rev your engine and scoot your way through the Seacoast! Scootin’ Around is located in Seabrook and offers single and double scooters for the very reasonable rate of $30 per hour. End your date with dinner and drinks around the fire pits at Castaways Seafood & Grille (located right next door).
4. Blooms and Beach Plum
Impress your girl (or guy) with a walk through the beautiful Fuller Gardens in Rye. Then head down the road for a lobster roll and ice cream at the famous Beach Plum stand across from North Hampton State Beach. Tip: don’t waste your time with the picnic tables, take your food to-go and eat on the beach wall for a more authentic experience.
5. Step back in time
Take your date back in time to a historically inspired speakeasy in downtown Portsmouth. Latchkey features unique drinks, small plates, live music and best of all – a mysterious and exciting experience. That’s not all, be on the lookout for Gatsby Parties and dance shows in the near future!
Time to grab your special someone and get out on the town!
