Some days it’s felt like summer would never get here, but it’s here and we couldn’t be more excited for the warm weather! Summer is filled with so many events and opportunities to freshen up your date night routine! If you’re looking for something new to enjoy for date night, this post is just for you! Included are 10 different date night ideas in the area, perfect for those hot summer days or breezy summer nights. We can’t wait to get started on the list ourselves!
Summer Date Night Ideas in Davis County
Scenic Sunset Hike
We completed this date a couple of weekends ago as part of our anniversary celebration weekend. We took the Wild Rose Trail to one of the scenic overlooks, but there are many trails around Davis County with great views of the sunset at night. Be aware of difficulty and bring a flashlight so you can hike safely back down the trail after the sun has gone done. Be sure to let someone know where you’ll be going and when you plan to be back, then check-in when you complete your hike, to stay safe. Click here for a great map of the trails in Davis County.
Breakfast Picnic Date
Summer mornings are perfect for a picnic! Grab breakfast from home or a local eatery and take it to your favorite park to enjoy before the temperature gets too high. We love Waffled, Caffe Torino, and Blue Lemon for breakfast. If it’s the weekend, our favorite Tortilla Union and their neighbor, Twigs, are now serving brunch as well. You could eat out on the patio at any of the locations mentioned above as well, for a makeshift picnic experience.
Firework shows are probably my favorite part of the summer and Davis County has plenty of them! Most will happen the week of July 4th, but a few are scattered throughout the month until after Pioneer Day. This post has a list of all of the shows in Davis County and will be updated annually to share details for the current year.
Get Ice Cream
There’s no better way to cool off during the summer than with a date night to get ice cream! Bountiful finally has a rolled ice cream location on Main Street, Blacksmith Ice Cream Co. If you want something classic, you can grab a concrete or frozen custard from Nielsen’s Frozen Custard in Bountiful or Layton. Last Course has delicious ice cream flavors and you can sample as many of them as you want before you choose one to order! We also love a hot fudge sundae or a simple blizzard from one of the local Dairy Queen locations.
Dinner at a Food Truck Event
I love grabbing dinner at a food truck event because you can try a variety of things, share meals and satisfy both of your cravings without stopping at multiple locations. This post shares all of the best roundups in Davis County and will be updated annually as new regular roundups are added.
Cuddle Up for Movies in the Park
One of my favorite things to do on a cool summer night is to cuddle up in a pile of blankets and watch movies outside. We do this in our backyard a lot, but I also look forward to local outdoor movie events. Check out this post for all of the events going on this summer around the county! We have our eye on a couple that would be perfect for a date night activity.
Attend an Outdoor Summer Concert
Local talent is highlighted in concerts across the county all summer long. Take a picnic, or grab food at one of the food trucks in attendance and enjoy music accompanied by the sounds of summer around you. Click here for a list of free outdoor concerts in the area this summer.
Local Summer Festivals
Davis County boasts a lot of fun summer traditions, including but not limited to, city sponsored 4th of July celebrations, Bountiful Handcart Days and Summerfest. Keep an eye on our Upcoming Events page for details on all of the fun festivals going on in the area this summer!
Worth the Trip
Full Moon Lift Ride
Last year we crossed something off my date night bucket list and took a romantic lift ride up the mountain under the light of the full moon. It’s a bit of a drive to Sundance, where this event takes place once a month, but it is definitely worth the trip! Click here for more details from our date last year!
