Top 10 Fall Date Ideas

A lot of people think that Valentine’s Day is the best time for romance, but they don’t think about how romantic the Fall can be. The Fall is actually one of the prettiest seasons of the year, when the trees are rich with colors and you can enjoy scenic drives, walks, etc. in weather that is not too hot or too cold. If it is chilly, you can warm up with a nice cup of hot chocolate or snuggle in front of a fireplace. This is a great time of year for dating, and we have some awesome fall date ideas for you to try.

  1. Create Your Own PSLEveryone loves a good pumpkin spice latte in the fall, and creating your own signature PSL is a great way to connect on a date. Come up with a version of this popular hot drink that is a little bit of both of you.
  2. Light a Fire – If you are looking for an inexpensive and romantic date idea, try lighting a fire. Find a safe and quiet spot (a beach, your back yard, etc.) where you can light a bonfire and snuggle up. Or, you may want to light up your fireplace for the first time this season, and snuggle up together with your custom PSL.
  3. Go to a Corn Maze – Another fun outdoor date is to walk hand in hand through a corn maze. Every time you solve part of the maze, stop to give each other a kiss. Top the day off with a corn-themed meal, such as delicious, hot corn chowder.
  4. Plan a Fall Picnic – There is still plenty of time to enjoy the nice weather and have a picnic, and you don’t have to spend the entire night before in the kitchen preparing for it. Instead, get some take-away from your favorite take-out restaurant, such as Panera, Burger King, Chick-fil-A, etc., pack it up, and take it to a nice picnic spot.
  5. Go to a Harvest Festival – This is a great time of year to hit up local festivals, and try all kinds of delicious foods. There are all kinds of things going on during these festivals, from music to markets to dining and more, and plenty of opportunities for fun dates.
  6. Make Caramel Apples – You don’t always have to leave the house to have a fun date night. For instance, you can stay at home and make candy or caramel apples, caramel popcorn, etc., and then have lots of delicious munchies to have while watching a DVD.
  7. Go to the Zoo – The fall is actually one of the best times of the year to go to the zoo. It is not too hot, and the animals are likely to be active and not just lazing around in the heat or inside their habitats.
  8. Pick Apples – If you live in an area where there are apple orchards, this is the time of year to go apple picking. This is not only a great idea for a date if you are in a relationship, but also a safe and fun first date location where you can enjoy yourself in a public setting in the daylight.
  9. Carve Pumpkins – A fun date doesn’t necessarily have to mean spending a lot of money. You can have a few hours of fun carving and decorating pumpkins right at home. All you need are a couple of pumpkins, some knives and other carving tools, paints, and brushes (and maybe a good bottle of wine), and you have everything you need.
  10. Go on a Hayride – Whether you are by yourselves or with a group, a hayride can be not only a fun adventure, but a very romantic date. You get to snuggle up beneath a blanket, look at the stars, and enjoy each other’s company.
