There is nothing better than when the weather starts getting warmer in Fairfield. The cherry blossoms on campus start blooming, the beach off campus looks more enticing and everyone’s moods go from zero (winter depression) to one hundred (spring happiness yay). 

Rightfully so, in the winter months, most couples’ perfect date ideas sound like ordering in, watching movies, and cuddling under a blanket. But in the spring after being cooped up for months, outside dates sound AMAZING! Here are some fun spring date ideas to do in Fairfield!

The special thing about these ideas is that they not only work for romantic relationships but friendship relationships too! It’s important to go on dates with all special people in your life whether they are your romantic partners or besties! 

FFLD Beach Picnic

When you live off campus sometimes it’s easy to forget that we live on a beautiful beach with perfect sunsets. What is more romantic than a picnic on the beach? Enjoy the warmer weather by either packing your own snacks and or meals or even ordering a Colony pie to enjoy together! Lay out a blanket, relax, and enjoy each other’s company. Pro Tip: Bring sweatshirts! And for the girlies, bring a hair elastic…Sometimes it gets windy/chilly at night. 

Walking Outside

Okay, so I know this might sound extremely boring. But, walking together and actually spending quality time communicating with each other is super important when it comes to a healthy relationship. Whether it’s with my girlfriends or my boyfriend, walking sparks conversations like no other. Walking outside is a great way to enjoy the fresh air, take the beauty of Fairfield in, and bond over shared outdoor experiences. Pro Tip: Keep your eyes out for deer! They are everywhere in Fairfield and so beautiful to see walking around!

Day Trip To NYC

As a senior here, I can admit that I have not taken advantage of how close we are to the Big Apple! We have a train station here in Fairfield that will bring you right to New York City in a quick train ride. It is so special that we go to school close to a place with amazing restaurants, views of the stunning skyline, museums, concerts, broadway, and so much more. There are a plethora of date ideas within NYC itself so I’ll let you and whomever your date is to explore that together. The best part is you can take the train and have an amazing day together and still be home to snuggle up and watch a movie together at 10 pm. Sounds like a perfect day to me.  Pro Tip: Wear extremely comfortable shoes! NYC is the city of WALKING, so it’s important to choose comfort over fashion for this date. 

Whether you are taking in the sun as a couple, or with your besties, these ideas are sure to create some everlasting memories!
