There's something about sunshine that makes you want to explore with your partner. Being adventurous doesn't have to mean booking a trip somewhere far...day-tripping with your significant other can be just as fun as planning a lavish vacation! Spice things up in your relationship. Instead of having a date "night" plan a "day" date. Day trips are something different and are more affordable than vacations which is another huge plus.
So where to go first? This list will give you a few options to be bold and fun with your significant other this summer.
