However, whether your date is in the daytime or the night time, there are lots of ways to have a cheap date, and still have a lot of fun and spend lots of quality time together as a couple. No matter if you are in the mood for a romantic date, an educational date, a group date or an energy boosting date, there are many ways you can enjoy these and save money too.

You certainly cannot buy moments like these pictured above. They were free, romantic and fun. One was a nice daytime educational date to the arch, which included a historical tour, and the other was a beautiful stress free, romantic date in the evening, that included a stroll along the riverfront.

If you can get some ice cream or just a cold drink, do it and enjoy your time together. Stop and stand looking out over the horizon. And just generally enjoy each other’s company.
