Relationships need a lot of work in order for to survive, and yet many couples always seem to be too busy with work, the kids and so many other things, they can barely have a little together time. We feel too tired to go out, date nights are too expensive or we’re just not interested because it’s not a real priority.

Check out these 5 simple date night ideas other than going out for dinner or to the movies.
1. Go on a Mini Road Trip
After being so caught up with work and raising a family, getting out on the road, even just for an hour or two out of town, is one of the best ways to spend time together and forget about everything else for a while. You get the chance to reconnect, discuss your future goals and desires. This will you put you both back on the same page and make sure you and your partner are happy. Before you leave, do some research about where to get food, or pack some home cooked meal to save cost.
2. Catch a Minor League Game
