14 Fourth of July date ideas

Do you remember the happy Independence Day celebrations you loved so much when you were a child?

What’s stopping you from doing that, now that you’re all grown up?

Instead of just waiting for the fireworks to light up the sky at night, go on out there and enjoy the day.

Here are 14 great ways to make your Independence Day date memorable, fun and oh-so-perfect!

#1 Raise a flag. This is something you can do first thing in the morning!

Plan ahead the earlier night and get together with all your friends or with your lover early in the day, and raise the national flag in front of your house. Sing the national anthem under the star spangled banner. Really, it’s not going to sound corny at all. In fact, it’ll help you realize just how important the day really is!

And finish the morning off by having breakfast out together in the yard, sharing stories or making plans for the rest of the day.

#2 Create a tradition. Do you have any Fourth of July traditions that you and your lover rigorously follow? If not, then this year is your best excuse to start a new tradition with your partner, whatever it may be, and make a promise to follow it every year. It’ll be a memorable and romantic way to enjoy the Independence Day every year. [Read: 25 relationship rules for successful love]

And many years later, you can look back at this Fourth of July and fondly remember how the tradition started in the first place.

#3 Have lunch at a restaurant. But not just any restaurant. Pick a restaurant with a patriotic menu with little flags all around! It’ll be a lot of fun to try a few new themed dishes, and it’s a great way to show respect to this special day too.

#4 Watch patriotic movies together. If you just want to relax at home, and yet, want to experience the spirit of Independence Day, pick up a few DVDs where the theme of the movie is about fighting for independence *The Patriot is a good one*. And if you’re not into movies, just watch the live celebration shows on the TV. [Read: Movie date tips to have a successful date]

#5 Cook with your lover. Bake a cake with your lover or make cupcakes. Everyone loves them, and baking the cakes and dressing them up in blues and reds can be a fun time. Or prepare a whole meal with a patriotic theme.

#6 Dress up and take photographs. Dress up in your blues, reds and white on this day. A happy relationship is built on memories, so make sure you dress up in your fancy attire and take a lot of pictures together *even if the photos are too personal to show off!* After all, what better way to celebrate the Fourth of July than by creating more memories that can last a lifetime!

#7 Visit historical museums. Plan a special outing with your partner on this day. Go to historical museums or places of historical importance if it’s a short drive away.

#8 Attend a celebration. Every city has several community activities and get-togethers to celebrate the Fourth of July. Your partner and you could go to a concert, a baseball game, or just spend the day at a picnic or by watching a parade. Go out there and have fun, after all, there’s so many things you can do in your own city. [Read: How to be funny and make people love your company]

#9 Watch a war reenactment. If you get the opportunity to watch a war reenactment around your place, don’t miss it. It’s worth watching, especially if there are a lot of people around in their celebratory best.

#10 Plan a road trip. Go on a road trip with your partner. But make sure you adorn your car by sticking a lot of little flags all around it. It’ll be a lot of fun, and even if you’re just driving around a few blocks and not down the freeway, you’re still spreading the good word. [Read: How to plan a perfect couples road trip]

#11 Have a barbeque. Invite all your friends over and spend the evening catching up with each other. As long as there’s an endless supply ofย  hot dogs and beer, everyone will have a fun time. [Read: How to avoid and cure a hangover]

#12 Have a campfire. Rent a lakeside cabin or spend the evening on the beach. Light a bonfire and spend some quality time with each other, watching the stars and the fireworks brighten up the night sky.

#13 A night of fireworks. If you’ve got kids around or love lighting up the night sky, buy your own fireworks and sparklers. But if you just like watching the night sky light up, go to a fireworks show with your partner and cheer out loud!

#14 Spend time with family. There’s no better way to spend the Fourth of July than by spending quality time with the ones you love. It’s a perfect way to enjoy the Independence Day. Get together on this holiday with all your loved ones, and enjoy the day by planning the activities together or by taking off to an all day event.

    A happy Fourth of July everyone! Nice article, I like the different date ideas a lot.

    One thing that really stood out for me was the date idea to start a tradition. I think that’s such a wonderful idea. At the end of the day, the fact that we’re celebrating Independence Day after all these years just goes to show just how important tradition really is.

    And starting a new romantic tradition that’s about love and romance, I can’t think of a better day!

    I have a fourth of July tradition. My family and I get together a few days before the weekend and head to our cabin by the lake. It’s a beautiful place, and there are always fireworks just on the other side of the lake.

    The 4th of july evenings are always perfect there, watching fireworks while playing with barbecue sauce with the kids.

    And if I get the time, I go to to the nearby park. There’s so much happening there, bands, people, music, booze, everything!!

    I really love these ideas and plan on implementing them next Fourth of July. I would love to start a tradition that is ours for this day as a date. I think cooking together and watching some really good Independence movies could be fun especially if we can snuggle, and may be take it to the deck or back yard to finish off watching the neighborhood fire works. Some really good movies though I really don’t like some of the war or military ones but I do like Will Smith and Independence Day and your suggestion of the Patriot might be good ones that would warrant me snuggling as I close my eyes at certain scenes. I am glad you wrote this article as I had never thought about making this day special for myself and my honey.

    My partner and I are far away from family, so we spend the 4th of July together mostly with our friends. This year though, we planned to spend it alone, together. We laid down on the grass at our backyard and we also smoked up some barbeques for the both of us. So, we just actually laid there with our barbeque and watched the fireworks as it exploded in the sky. It was by far one of the sweetest moments we had yet. I know it’s kinda simple, but to us it meant for then that.
