Fun Car Date Ideas for the Summer

With summer coming to a close soon, there’s nothing better than taking your sweetheart out for a spin. And no – we aren’t just talking about your car. Many people love to get out and enjoy the sun this time of year. The team at Auto Doc has created this list of fun date ideas that you and your partner can do.

Watch the Sunset Together

Nothing screams a romantic date night like watching the beautiful sunset together. The Houston skies can be firey bright with red, orange, pink, or purple hues around sunset. So we recommend finding an outlook to get an awesome view. Don’t forget to take a camera because you’ll want to capture the moment.

View a Movie at a Drive-In Theater

The summer has some of the most anticipated and fun movie releases throughout the year. While drive-in theaters are more difficult to find, there are several throughout the Houston area still in business. Bring your sweet ride and your sweetheart to a local drive-in for an unforgettable experience. 

Go on a Food Crawl

The food is Houston is some of the finest in Texas. And who doesn’t love a date night with delicious eats? You and your partner can take turns picking a different place for appetizers, drinks, entrees, and desserts. The mix and match of various spots add spontaneity to the classic dinner date night.  

Road Trip Fun

Once you freshen up your car for the summer, why not take it out on the open road with your partner? The two of you can play some classic road trip games or sing along to all the hits.
