by | Apr 18, 2024

Spring is here, the birds are chirping, the flowers are blooming, the air is fresh, and friends are posting thirst traps of their winter workout bodies on social media. Spring is the perfect time for queer couples to let their romance blossom with fun outdoor activities and adventures. Here are seven fresh, romantic spring date ideas of queer couples, that will also give you picture-perfect, Instagramable moments: 

1. Picnic 

A picnic in the park is cute but picture a picnic in a grassy meadow by a lake, or high on a hillside overlooking a valley. Make your picnic fabulous with a blanket, wicker basket, wine, healthy snacks, and a sensational setting. Make it an adventure to find your perfect picnic spot. Make it extra romantic by making it a sunset picnic with candles and lanterns. 

2. Scenic drive 

Get out and explore the backroads and gorgeous countryside. Roll down the windows, turn up the music, and let the fresh air breeze through your hair. This is your opportunity to stop at some pull-outs and take in the scenic views, appreciate the warm sun, and enjoy a day off at a slower pace. 

3. Find waterfalls 

Get out and do nature! During the spring, waterfalls are at their peak, as snow melts from the mountain tops, surging down creeks and rivers into majestic displays of beauty. Some waterfalls are located within a few mins walk from a parking lot, and others can be a full days hike to get to. Whatever you choose, remember that the currents move fast and to stay in a safe spot when getting your ultimate romantic kiss photo. 

4. Flower festival selfies

The flower fields are bursting with dazzling displays of every color in the rainbow! The spring bloom starts with an incredible showcase of tulips, winter canola, and then daffodils—depending on your region and what grows best in your region. Flower festivals offer acres of opportunities to get stunning photos of perfect rows of flowers, macro floral shots, gorgeous selfies, and super cute couple shots. Many flower fields will have props like tractors, swing sets, vintage bicycles, carriages, and more, to up your social content game. You can also take home a bouquet of fresh flowers for your boo. 

Lakeland Flowers, located in Abbotsford, British Columbia, kicks off the six-month flower festival season this spring with the Abbotsford Tulip Festival. It’s Canada’s largest tulip festival, with 27 acres and over 70 tulip varieties, including fringe and double tulips, and a unique legacy tulip. Tickets and more information: www.lakelandflowers.ca.

5. Wine touring 

Sip up the warm spring weather with wine touring. Whether you’re taking a self-guided wine tour, joining a scheduled group wine tour, or going with other couples, wine touring is incredibly fun. Wineries often have exclusive releases of new wines that are only available at the winery. Wine tastings are a great way to learn what varietals of wine you like or allow you to try new wines. Many wineries have restaurants overlooking the vineyard with perfectly paired food and wine. Plus, you can purchase wine to take home with you for a follow-up wine date!  

6. Horseback riding 

Haaaay!! Live your sexy cowboy fantasy you and your partner saddle up for a guided horseback adventure. Almost all horseback tour operators offer no-experience-required trail rides, complete with instructions on how to get on, ride, and get off your horse. Horseback rides are typically offered in 1-, 2-, or 4-hour timeslots. Some operations offer sunset rides, wagon rides, and barbeque or picnic options.  

Grab your camera, get outside, enjoy the beautiful spring weather, and let your relationship blossom this spring! There are so many great opportunities to grow your queer relationship this spring, and incredible photo opportunities to create amazing social content.
