The work week is behind you and you’re looking forward to some alone time with your bae. After a week of being all “hardworking” and “corporate,” that weekend air is twisting thoughts into your dirty mind and sparking wild dreams of activities to come…

Don’t limit those dirty thoughts to just your mind -- turn them into ACTION. But easy, tiger, maybe not in the way you might think.

It's Grime Time

outdoor activities
philly date

If you can love your significant other underneath a layer of swampy grime, then your romance is in pretty good shape. So, put it to the test. Bring your boo on a 10 mile trip along the Delaware River. Paddle amongst wildlife and immerse yourself in the beauty of nature and the elements.

Just like Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams in the rowboat/swan scene in The Notebook (you know the one we're talking about), you and your bae will fall deeper and deeper in love with every stroke of the paddle. Just maybe trade the rowboat for a kayak and the swans for some river critters. Or use your imagination -- that works too.

Rolling in the Dirt

philly date

Ok, so this one’s not that dirty. But you CAN make it dirty if you’re feeling rebellious. Grab a bae, grab a bike, and hit the dirt road -- or paved road. More than likely, it'll be a paved road. Take nature in and bike along the Delaware River, through miles and miles of gorgeous scenery with ample stopping points.

Roll your way into a romantic date with the glory of the great outdoors to keep you and your boo entertained. Not dirty enough for the dirty-date guide? Hop off your bike and get messy if you feel like it...the rest is up to you.
