Even though it may not feel like summer quite yet, Memorial Day Weekend is right around the corner (yay!) and pretty soon, you’ll be swooning over the perfectly tan lifeguards and hoping they don’t pick up on the fact that you’ve walked by their stand three times in the last hour.
Summer’s all around way better than the winter, but dating in the summer is especially better than dating in the colder months (read a fun article here on why summer flings are better than winter romances) and it’s best to go into this summer with some great date ideas just in case your crush needs some help organizing (hint: most teenage boys do!). See below Pinkly Perfect’s picks for some perfect date spots based on your Jersey Shore beach town of choice.
If you’re an Avalon, NJ girl, suggest meeting up for a slice of pizza at Circle Pizza then walk over to Pirate Island for mini golf (make sure you request the pink golf ball!). Adding a little bit of competition would be super fun, especially if it’s one of your first dates, so plan for the loser to buy ice cream at Sundae Best and indulge in one of their many homemade flavors like Salted Caramel, German Chocolate Cake, or Blueberry Crumb (yum!).
If Ocean City, NJ is your beach town of choice, why not go on a fun day date!? Start by renting a surrey to ride around the boardwalk. Since you’ll work up a sweat, stop by Brown’s to refuel with some hot donuts then indulge in them on the beach. Make sure you pack a beach towel to lay out before getting all sandy!
By far the best thing to take advantage of in Wildwood, NJ is the boardwalk with over 100 rides and attractions. Get cozy with your crush on the Ferris Wheel, let out some screams (not too loud, girls) on one of their roller coasters, and share some funnel cake as you stroll along the water hoping to end the night with a kiss. 🙂
If you and your crush vacation in Cape May, NJ then lucky you! Cape May, NJ is a perfect spot for a romantic date. Start off with a horse & carriage tour of old fashioned Cape May, then stop in Fine Fellows Creamistry for a root beer float, then curl up and catch a movie on the beach like Jaws or Free Willy, both scheduled for this summer!
