Summer is a great time to enjoy the outdoors and the romance it brings. Many of my fondest romantic memories are those of "summer romances". Sunset strolls along the beach, private camping retreats for two, finger food barbeque... Below is a list of a few ideas from myself and ideas given by Lovingyou.com users! Make the most of your summer and do at least one idea each week!

Spend a lazy day at the park with your honey. Picnic next to a lake or even take out a row boat and relax.
Lay on your rooftop at night and find the the stars/constellations together while you're cuddling in each other's arms.

Spend a lazy day lounging on the beaches and have a wonderful moonlit picnic that night. Just think, the crashing waves in your ear, stars in the eyes of your loved one, warm sand on your skin... and of course great food!

My idea for a perfect summer day would be sitting in the park under a shady tree with that special someone reading poetry to each other.

Make sure it is a very starry night and take your boyfriend to a beach or lake where there is sand or a pier. If you can use music do it! If not just enjoy the silence and dance and hold each other. It is very romantic!!!

At night, go skinny-dipping in your pool with a minimum amount of light. Play Marco Polo, (where one partner closes their eyes and calls out Marco. The other partner calls out Polo and the other partner has to try and find them). Once the partner is found, slowly make love to them. You'll want to repeat this for hours and hours. We've tried this with our partners, and we give it a raging 10!

One time my boyfriend and I hadn't seen each other's for a long time.
When he got back from school, it seemed like something was missing. That
night, we decided to go and take a walk on the beach. It ended up
relighting the flame. He took a stick and drew in the sand a big heart,
and he wrote inside- SARAH + BRYNE FOREVER. It was so romantic it made me

We didn't have a lot of money, so we bought pizza the one night.
Had a bottle of red wine and a blanket. We had a picnic in their backyard
with soft music playing. It was GREAT. We looked at the stars and in each other's eyes and we both knew that we were in LOVE. That was the single most wonderful experience I have ever had! It was sincere and straight from the heart!

For those of you who live in or near a big city with some tall buildings... this will work well... it was the best valentine's day I have ever had... I packed a duffel bag with a red tablecloth, two red candles and candlesticks, a bottle of champagne, and a radio with romantic music on tape.. I took her to the top of the tallest building in town, 72 stories up... to the observation deck... while she was looking at the city and the stars, I set up the tablecloth and everything and started the music... then I told her that when I am with her I feel like I am on top of the world and this is the closest I could get... then I asked her to dance... it was the best day ever!

Get 2 containers of ice cream, put them in a cooler and pack it with plenty of ice. Get some cones and a scooper. Put the cones in a waterproof container. Take her to a beach or a park and surprise her with ice cream cones together.
This also works well with smaller coolers with vodka and O.J. for after a nice evening together. Great nitecap!

I know most of you guys do not think about getting out of the car, during a drive-inn º¿º But the most romantic picnic I ever had, was at the drive-inn, when my boyfriend surprised me with a picnic. We sat outside, under the stars, on a rug next to the car. With candles to add that special touch, and watched the movie in each others arms... it sure was a moment to cherish.

Pretend that you are tourists for the day. Dress in tropical
attire (or something obviously touristy) Purchase a tour book of your city
and set out to see the sites. Don't forget to take along the camera for
some goofy, but unforgettable pictures. You may want to visit museums, the
zoo, historical cites, known tourist traps, etc. This is so much fun,
because you may have never gotten around to see the things that you take
for granted in your city, state, or town

Here is a really great romantic idea for all of you! Take your
better half, go buy a tent and go camping in the woods! There would be
privacy and it would be a great way to spend some quality time with the one
you love! Be sure to get a double sleeping bag to keep nice and cozy!

Plan an overnight hiking trip but surprise him.
So you could watch sunset and sunrise together.

Try going to a place where you could see the city lights, while
playing soft instrumental music, then having her very close in your arms
and just hug and nibble on her earlobe and whisper to her that she
really means a lot to you and that it wouldn't be heaven on earth without
