Did you know that, statistically, Americans will spend about 90% of their life indoors? This spring, we’re inviting you to flip the script, shake it up, and get outdoors! Here are ten fun date ideas that get you outside and are perfect for the entire family.\n\n1. Don't Be A Neigh Sayer \nThere are generally horseback adventures available on Groupon, or a quick Google search will lead you to nearby stables. If you're lucky, you may be able to find wineries in your area that also offer horseback rides! \n2. Turn It Up \nOutdoor concerts or performing arts is a movement that has been on the rise over the last decade. Check with your local parks and recreation department to see what’s offered in your city. You might be surprised to find out just how much outdoor entertainment is happening right in your hometown. And, most of the time, it’s even free!\n3. Hit The Links\nIf it’s just you and your sweetheart, consider visiting a driving range to hit a bucket of balls. If you want to invite the kids along, consider opting for a round of mini golf instead.\n4. Drive-In Movies \nNostalgia gives us all the feels on this one. The cool factor is off the charts for the kids, and you and your sweetie get to cuddle up under a blanket and the stars to take in the latest Hollywood hits. As an added perk, drive-in theater pricing is typically by the carload, meaning you could save big bucks by taking the whole family, and you’re totally allowed to talk during the show. Drive-ins aren’t as popular as they once were, so check out http:\/\/drive-ins.com\/ to find one near you.\n5. Gone Fishing\nSomething about sitting on the dock with your toes dancing across the top of the water is flat out romantic. Since fishing can go from still and silent to lively and exciting pretty quickly, you’ll find that there is a nice balance of time to talk, and potential to create exciting memories. And if you actually catch something, bonus, now you’ve got dinner covered, too.\n6. Nature Hike\nIt’s simple and timeless. Find a state or national park near you, lace up the hikers, and hit the trail. We love the idea of taking a small vase with you for a shorter, family style trek. This way, you can keep the kids engaged by asking them to find and pluck a vase of wildflowers.\n7. Go On a Treasure Hunt\nGeocaching is a worldwide game being played right under your nose every day. Ready to take on the modern day treasure hunt? Just download the geocaching app and use your phone to guide you to points of interest in your community where hidden boxes contain treasures - often in the form of nickel and dime toys for the kids. Just remember - if you want to take a gift, you’re expected to leave one, too.\n8. Fun On Two Wheels \nKids and bikes go together like peanut butter and jelly. If it’s been awhile since you’ve gone cycling, you might be surprised to remember just how fun and freeing it can feel to pedal around town. If you don’t want to buy a new bike, most major cities will offer bike rental companies, and a few even offer guided city tours right from the saddle. And what they say is true, you really never do forget how it’s done.\n9. Visit the State Fair\nHere’s another one to take you back to your childhood years. Grab your sweetie and the kids and hit the state fair this spring. Maybe grab a deep-fried snack to share with the family. \n10. Sandy Toes\nDo you live close enough to the shore to visit the beach? Plan an evening at the shore, as opposed to just a day trip. While the kids might be bummed to miss the heat of the day, there is something magical about the beach at night. Often you’ll find street performers, live music, and a nice breeze.\n\nDon’t forget - QALO is designed to be outside with you. Ready to update your style with the freshest spring colors?
