IT’S MARCH 1ST!!!
Yet somehow it’s still raining this weekend in SoCal?
THANK U, NEXT.
Anyways, with the arrival of March, I’m hoping for Spring weather when the air is warmer and the days feel longer.
Here’s some fun date ideas for the anticipated glowy days.
GO GIANTS! I’m a big fan of the ballpark (with booze and a hot dog, of course). Baseball games are so much fun to enjoy outdoors in sunny weather. You don’t have to be a big sports person to enjoy the ballpark, either. For me, baseball is a more chill sport to watch. There’s lots of room for chatting, eating, drinking, etc. PLUS THE KISS CAM, um duh?
Attend an Outdoor Art Show
Art exhibits are actually really fun and outdoor ones are even better. Desert X is a great opportunity for this and for camping! My best friend and I made plans to visit this exhibit that’s open to the public in Joshua Tree during St. Patrick’s Weekend!
Mini Road Trip
If you want to really get to know someone, road trip with them. I love road tripping down the California coast where you drive along the water with several stops for good food, coffee and cool photo ops! I love road tripping to Santa Barbara from SoCal! The coast is beautiful and there’s an abundance of beaches and fields to stop by for a picnic!
DIY Drive-In Movies
Spring is usually too early in the year for the free summer movie nights to start up, but you can also make your own “drive-in.” You don’t need a car, or even a projector (although if you can find one, by all means). Just grab a blanket and some pillows and head out to your backyard or rooftop to snuggle with a fully charged laptop, speakers and some snacks.
Hike and Cliff Diving!
I love a good hike, especially early in the morning. Take a hike where you can go cliff jumping and enjoy the outdoors all day! It’s usually not hot enough for the water to be shallow yet, so this is the perfect season to go! Bring a backpack to post up and enjoy a small picnic, too! If you live in SoCal, I highly recommend Hermit Falls where there’s also a nature-made water slide!
