Still Not Too Late for a Frugal Outdoor Date - Shel Horowitz's Monthly Frugal Fun Tip

Still Not Too Late for a Frugal Outdoor Date

We haven't done a tipsheet on frugal romance in a while. Since many of the best frugal dates are outdoors, and the New England chill is blowing through my fingertips as I write this (outside, on a laptop), let's do a quick roundup of some great FREE or very cheap dates you can do before the cold really sets in.

  • Climb a mountain
  • Rent a rowboat
  • Picnic in the park
  • Go people-watching in elegant or ethnic neighborhoods
  • Take a long bicycle ride
  • Go to a high school ball game
  • Make a game of collecting the most beautiful and the most different kinds of autumn leaves
  • Walk along a riverbank with binoculars and a bird guide
  • Find a dark, open place to observe the night sky

    Of course, these only scratch the surface. You'll find more great cheap romantic ideas elsewhere on this site, at 17 Great Romantic Dates for Penny-Pinchers and Michael Webb's The RoMANtic. But do make sure you get out a few times and stave off winter sun deprivation!

    • As is the case for most professional reviewers, many of the books I review on this site have been provided by the publisher or author, at no cost to me. I've also reviewed books that I bought, because they were worthy of your time. And I've also received dozens of review copies at no charge that do not get reviewed, either because they are not worthy or because they don't meet the subject criteria for this column, or simply because I haven't gotten around to them yet, since I only review one book per month. I have far more books in my office than I will ever read, and the receipt of a free book does not affect my review.
