Warm and pleasant spring weather presents the perfect opportunity for outdoor dates. At Arkansas Relationship Counseling Center, we recommend the following eight date ideas as a great companion for local couple’s therapy.
How do you fix a relationship after cheating? This question isn’t simple to answer, nor is the remedy a quick fix. Thankfully, though, through the skilled help of relationship counselors at Arkansas Relationship Counseling Center, you can find healing after a spouse has cheated. We also recommend the following, fun couple dates that will get you out and about while improving your relationship dynamic.
1.) Go Hiking
Hiking is a great way to reconnect with each other and enjoy the beauty of nature simultaneously. Check out Hawksbill Crag in Ponca, or the Cedar Fall Trail in Morrilton for some awesome hiking trails. If you and your partner are looking for something a little more challenging, try hiking Pinnacle mountain or visiting Petit Jean!
2.) Get Adventurous
Step outside of your comfort zone and try something new on your outdoor date. If you haven’t ever given it a try, ziplining can be something exciting that you and your partner try together. Visit Hot Springs or Ozark Mountain Ziplines, and if you are in Little Rock, this gives you the opportunity for a road trip as well.
3.) Go Biking
Biking is an activity that can draw you back to when life was simpler. It makes you feel like a kid again. There are many biking trails to enjoy on the Arkansas River Trail. To really work on being a team, you can rent a tandem bike!
4.) Go on a Picnic
What could be better on a nice sunny day than a picnic? You can do this anywhere and everywhere, even your own backyard. Simply pack up a blanket and either make some food together or stop by and get take out. The idea is to simply enjoy each other’s company and talk, even in the middle of a crazy work week take lunch outside one day.
5.) Watch the Stars
The most affordable date, is enjoying everything that the night sky has to offer. Go check out a few books on astronomy from your local library and then lay out under the stars together and see what you can find. There are also several apps you can download on your phone that will tell you what stars are directly above you!
6.) Go Kayaking or Canoeing
Another amazing activity to try this time of year is kayaking or canoeing. Don’t worry if you don’t own the gear, you can rent everything you’ll need at Buffalo River Outfitters. This can help you work on communication skills and working as a team.
7.) Go Fishing
Try your hand at fishing as well for a great outdoor date. Xtreme Strike Guide Service will provide you with what you need to enjoy a day of fishing on the water.
8.) Go to the Zoo
The last activity on our outdoor dates list is a visit to the zoo. Remember, zoos aren’t just for kids or families, they are for everyone. Try Little Rock Zoo for a local treat.
