Summertime friend dates are awesome! Friend dates are, of course, dates or excursions with your friends. My summertime friend dates occur, more often than not, with Heather (who is my top BFF) and our bestie Pickles. However, you can go on a friend date with one person, or four, or seven – it's all up to you! You can even go with your crush, if you happen to be friends as well. Friend dates are generally more about fun than romance, and the idea is to have the best possible time. If you want to go on some fantastic adventures with your best buddies, start making plans!
1. Head to the Theme Park
Theme park visits make some of the best summertime friend dates because you can make it an all day affair, or beat the heat by going in the evening. Shorter lines, cooler temperatures, the ability to get seriously goofy with your buddies … what could be better? If there's not an amusement park near you, then you can either plan a road trip or check out smaller fairs and carnivals in your area.
