Something unique and new:
- Rooftop Serenade – Climb up on your roof after dark to watch the fireworks display in the distance. Or make some of your own – up on the roof!
- Biking for Two – If you can find a place to rent a tandem bike, go on a ride built for two. Or take your own bikes and decorate them for the holiday. Have your own patriotic bicycle parade.
- Go skinny dipping, that is if you can do it where it’s private and you won’t get caught or in trouble. No fun to make the headlines! Best if you have your own pool.
- Buy her a bouquet of red, white and blue flowers and tell her how proud you are of her.
