6 Fun Cheap Date Ideas You’ll Enjoy and Won’t Rattle Your Budget

Have you gone on a date lately? Dating can be wildly expensive as inflation remains high and disrupts your budget. Couples spend more on transportation, gas, and clothing as restaurants hike food and bar prices.

Going on a date doesn’t have to be expensive to have a wonderful time. Be creative about your choices, and have fun getting to know each other, and make lots of memories.

Do you enjoy taking rides and exploring natural beauty? Pack your car with food like veggies or cheese to eat along the way, or find an excellent area for a picnic. Look for nature trails along rivers or ponds,  or discover public arboretums and botanical gardens in your area.

1. Take Advantage of Nature

You may enjoy people-watching in parks, streets, and stores if you are more of an urbanite. Go window shopping down Fifth Avenue in New York City, visit Central Park, walk boardwalks, gaze at beautiful views from hotel rooftops or skyscrapers, and visit museums that interest you.

2. Urban Delights

Rather than going to a restaurant, consider planning a meal, making pizza, or baking a pie. Come up with a budget you can work with and split the costs.  It doesn’t have to be a complicated meal; it is probably better if it is something easy and fun to do together.

3. Plan A Meal Together

You may want to order pizza and have a cozy night playing your favorite card or board games. So many games come to mind, like some of the classics: UNO, Checkers, Chess, Yahtzee, Risk, Scrabble, and Monopoly. It’s a great way to test out your competitive nature and temperament.

4.  Playing Board Games And Puzzles

You may decide on something more sedate or indoors, like bowling, rollerskating, taking a ferry or train to different locations, hiking, flying a kite, or paintballing. Go to antiquing, flea markets, or junkyards to find treasures.

5. Indoor And Outdoor Adventures

Depending on your interests, there are many fun and engaging activities.  If you love to read books, browse through a bookshop and find a book to read to each other. Consider pottery-making or painting to exercise creativity, go to a karaoke bar, and sing together.
