Pick Fruit6 of 10
Strawberries are in season, as are many other berries. Pick a bucket or two together; then go home and turn them into something sweet. Don't have berry-picking locations near you? Check out your local farmers' market instead.
Try a Mass Transit Date7 of 10
Look online for local bus, subway, or light rail maps for your city, or pick up maps from the mass transit authority in your area; then choose a destination. It might be the last stop on a particular bus line or a cute town just an hour away.
Enjoy Some Eco-Tourism8 of 10
Whether it's an afternoon in your local botanical garden, kayaking a waterway, or visiting an earth-friendly resort, eco-tourism is a great way to spend some time together, and maybe even learn a little something about the planet.
Go For a Stroll9 of 10
Our grandparents did it. Their grandparents did it. For much of the history of the planet, it was the chosen way to have a date night. Choose a park, the woods, or a local beach. Or simply stroll around your downtown area and do some people watching.

Walk for a Cause10 of 10
Is a casual stroll too casual for you? Try walking for a cause instead. Whether you're walking dogs for the local shelter or participating in a walkathon, walking for others will warm your hearts without warming the planet.
