Five things to do with a date this summer



Drive-in movie

If you don’t mind a little drive, catch a drive-in movie at the 13-24 drive-in in Wabash.

Tickets are $5 and concessions are available.

Every Thursday throughout June and July, the drive-in will play a classic movie such as "Grease" and "Jaws" as part of its Retro Reels promotion. Gates open at 8 p.m., and the cost is $5 per car.

13-24 opens in June, and its first movie will be the "Angry Birds" movie.

If you aren’t looking to take a drive, Muncie has Moonlight Movies for free at Canan Commons once a month, beginning at dusk. This summer’s Moonlight Movies will be "Cinderella," "The Avengers" and "Star Wars: The Force Awakens."


Summer weather is perfect for having a picnic with that special someone.

Grab food to-go from a restaurant or make your own, and set up on the Quad or venture out somewhere new.


Learn about the stars and space with your date at the Charles W. Brown Planetarium on campus, which is open to the public, during designated showtimes.

The dome-like screen uses real photos of space from spacecrafts and telescopes as well as computer graphics to make the experience as realistic as possible.

The planetarium is connected to Cooper Science Building.


Going to the zoo is a fun and relaxing way to spend time with your significant other.

The Indianapolis Zoo has events running throughout the summer such as Zoolapalooza Concert Series and Lion Awareness day.

Tickets are cheaper if bought online in advance, and the website also projects what days will be busier than others, so you can plan accordingly.


Have a certain Pinterest project you’ve been dying to try? Make a date out of it.

You can each put your own spin on the craft and either keep them for yourselves or exchange them as gifts.
