20 Cheap Date Ideas

Lets face it, going out on dates can be expensive.  So here's a list of cheap date ideas that will ease any financial woes and help the two of you have a great time together (because that's what it's all about)!

  1. Go and get some fresh air and take a nature walk or turn it into a hike if you are both up for a little challenge.
  2. Play or learn a sport together (my favorite is tennis).
  3. Go to a local dive bar for happy hour and play a game of darts or pool together.
