After a long winter, it’s nice to spend a day outdoors with the one you love, but courtship in the city can be difficult – and expensive.
Looking to romance your honey without hurting your wallet? Look no further. Plan the perfect spring date for free.
Here are Metro’s five free outdoor date ideas in Philadelphia:
1) Summer Screening
Cheap Date Philadelphia offers a list of free film screenings in various parks across Philly. It’s a fabulous free summer programming open for all. Pick a movie that both you and your partner will love and just remember to bring your own blanket – and a few snacks.
2) Disc Golfing
Disc golfing, or “frisbee golfing,” is a free and fun sport played at Sedgley Woods disc golf course, one of the oldest public pole-hole disc golf courses in America. The free outdoor sport takes place beneath the treetops and is perfect for those warm spring afternoon. Like regular golfing, you can play at your own pace, allowing plenty of time to talk, flirt, and take in the scenery. You may need to invest in a disc or purchase one for $9 on site.
3) Drink Philly
Philadelphia has rightly earned the reputation of being one of the top beers towns in the U.S. and the Yards Brewing Company is well known among the passionate craft brewing community. On Saturdays YBC offers a free tour of the company’s brewery and tasting room, located at 901 N. Delaware Avenue. If by the end of the tour, these tastings aren’t enough for you and your date, the tasting flights are only $5 and $8 paired with fudge.
4) Fairmount Park
As far as urban areas go, Greater Philadelphia has hit the jackpot on outdoor-space. The Fairmount Park offers 9,200 acres of opportunities to hike, bike, play frisbee, and plan a picnic or a barbecue. There are no excuses not to enjoy a beautiful day with that special someone in the open parks of Philly.
5) First Friday
On the first Friday of every month, art galleries across Greater Philadelphia open their doors in the evening to the public. Patrons can grab free food and drinks while they browse the gallery and art shows hand-in-hand with that lucky guy or gal.
