Fall is a great time of year for romance. The foliage is changing and the heat of summer is dissipating so it’s the perfect time to break the traditional “dinner and a movie” habit and do something a little different.
So what kinds of dates will keep both you and your significant other happy during the fall? Below are 10 fall date ideas you should consider.
10 Date Ideas for the Fall Season
1. Visit a Fall Festival
There is nothing like visiting a festival in the fall. There are always great sweets, rides, concerts, attractions and one-of-a-kind items from local crafters. For fall in particular, you can also look forward to haunted attractions and themes.
For the night owls and hopeless romantics, try filling your truck bed or back yard with your comfiest blankets and cuddle up under the stars. As a special treat, the Leonid Meteor Shower is expected to peak November 17-18. So on a clear night, you can see tons of meteors streaking across the sky.
3. Hike a Trail
On a brisk fall day, try taking your date on a hike across a gorgeous hiking path. You may luck up and even find yourselves in front of a waterfall. Be sure to bring your camera to capture all of those picture perfect moments.
4. Attend a Drive-in Movie
For the nostalgia lovers, try taking your date to a drive in theater. There’s nothing like watching a movie on the big screen, under the moonlight. So if you’re lucky enough to have a drive-in theater in your area, take advantage of this oldie but goodie.
5. Play One-on-One Football
For the fitness lovers, this is a win-win! You both get to showcase your amazing athletic abilities and wear cute outfits to show off your tough side. To make it more interesting, try making a friendly bet. Whoever wins, gets to name their prize! (Image from Junebug Weddings)
6. Host a Bonfire
Bonfires are perfect for fall. You can enjoy an intimate moment with your significant other or you can invite other couples. Either way, there will be lots of opportunity for snuggling! A stationary or portable fire pit will work too. Just fire it up and enjoy fall-flavored cocktails under the stars. (Image from The Knot)
7. Take a Trip to a Pumpkin Patch
Start your date by carving pumpkins, roasting pumpkin seeds, or making a pie! When it comes to decorating your pumpkins, get creative with glow-in-the-dark paint or glitter. If you’re carving your pumpkins, use LED lights inside to create a magical glow. (Image from One One)
8. Visit an Archery Range
Archery is growing in popularity thanks to a large number of big screen movies. So this would be a great way to have some fun and learn a unique hobby. As with any sports outing, add some extra fun by making a private couple’s bet.
9. Enter a Halloween Costume Competition
Halloween is not just for kids. It’s a great way for couples to dress up in amazing costumes and compete in competitions with prizes ranging from free drinks to a weekend getaway. (Image from Bridal Guide)
10. Ride a Horse
There are tons of private stables that offer horseback riding lessons and trail rides. You can even arrange for a private guided ride for just the two of you. In addition to the romance and ambiance, it’s also a great workout!
