Fall is in full swing and before you know it, it’ll be over! So make the most of the time that’s left by planning the perfect fall date night. There are so many fall activities to choose from, you’ll never be bored! We love the classics like apple or pumpkin picking, or getting lost in a corn maze, but there are a lot of different things to do you might not even think of! Here are some of our favorites:
Depending on where you live, this could be your last chance for a while to go camping! Find a nice spot to soak in all that nature has to offer and really focus on that quality time together. Pack all those yummy camping snacks and make a fun weekend of it! If you’re not as adventurous, try a backyard (or even living room) camp out instead!
Take a Leaf Peeping Road Trip
The colors of fall foliage are just plain magical. Take a drive and try and find the most beautiful trees. What’s your favorite, the red or the orange leaves? This can be as long or short as you want! Find a new place, get lost in the countryside, take the road less traveled. Foliage only peaks for so long, enjoy it while it lasts!
Tailgate at a Football Game
Football is a staple of the fall season. And who doesn’t love a good tailgate?! This doesn’t have to be for an expensive NFL game, local college games can be a blast too! Take a trip back to your alma mater for homecoming and get all those nostalgic feels. If your beau is from a different school, this is a great opportunity to show him around while also experiencing that school spirit and soaking up all that fall fun.
Go to a Brewery or Vineyard Tasting
Sure, you can do this any time of the year, but fall is just so much fun! Snuggle up and hit a couple different breweries or park yourself at a vineyard for a few hours. Brewery tours in the fall could also mean trying some pumpkin beer or maybe even hard apple cider. We love those fall flavors!
Take a Cooking Class
Once again, something you can obviously do any time of the year, but who doesn’t love fall food?! Those warm, cozy comfort foods are to die for and a cooking class could really up your game and take that crockpot recipe to a whole new level you didn’t see coming!
Hiking is really the whole package if you think about it. You get some great exercise while enjoying nature and are rewarded with a killer view at the end. Seriously, what’s better than that?
Explore a Haunted House
Halloween anyone? ‘Tis the season for a good spook! Plus, having a big strong man protect you in a haunted house isn’t the worst thing in the world. Grab your partner and some friends and create some memories! Every haunted house ends up with some hilarious stories you’ll remember for years to come.
There’s just something so romantic about stargazing. Being all snuggled up on a blanket in the cool night looking out into the universe make us swoon a little. Find a nice place with little to no light pollution and just watch the world go by. Make sure you’re prepared with a stargazing app so you can find different constellations, too!
Host a Halloween Movie Night
If you’re not a big outdoors person, snuggle up on the couch instead! We love a good Halloween movie marathon night. You can go with your spooky, creepy flicks or stick with the fun classics (Hocus Pocus anyone?). Keep it intimate with just you and your beau or open it up to some other couples to join. Pop the popcorn and you’re ready to rock!
Go for a Picnic
Picnics are always a good time! Pack up a yummy basket filled with your seasonal favorites and head to a local park to relax and enjoy the crisp fall air. Watch the leaves fall, snuggle up, and just be together.
Carve Some Pumpkins
Another Halloween classic, we love pumpkin carving! It brings back all those fond childhood memories, but now you’re probably way more skilled and can make some pretty impressive pumpkins. If you’re not into the carving thing, try painting them!
