Fall Date Ideas
With fall in full swing, there are countless date ideas that are perfect for the season. Take advantage of this opportunity and tailor your outings to the weather, no matter where you live! I've compiled a list of my top 8 ideas that are super basic but are worth doing anyway. Even if you don't have a date, these activities are fun to do with friends. So, pull up a bale and stay awhile.
1. Go to A Corn-Maze
Nothing says fall like going to a corn-maze. If you’re the type that loves a challenge, then this would be the date for you. I googled "corn-mazes" near me and found a great one that not only has a corn maze but also outdoor movies, haunted & not haunted hay rides, live music, and even a haunted corn maze ( if you're into that sort of thing).
2. Have a Picnic
Find some gorgeous fall scenery, spread out a blanket and have a classic picnic date. You can include fall favorites, like mini pumpkin pies, harvest turkey sandwiches, caramel apples, and some of your favorite wine or beer. What better way to spend a day?
3. Go to a Pumpkin Patch/Carve Pumpkins
Another basic fall activity but hey, it fun & messy so why not!? When you're done, you can decorate your front porch with some beautiful or not so beautiful pumpkins. I like to find ideas off Pinterest.
4. Take a Hike
On a cool fall day, why not take in the beautiful fall foliage? Maybe this is not the best idea for a 1st date because just meeting them and hanging out in the woods alone can be, well, a little weird. Just google or check out your local park service website.
5. Go To a Haunted House
This is definitely not for someone who doesn't enjoy walking through a creepy haunted house while characters out of your nightmare jump out at you but if that's your fancy, what a fun date!
6. Gather 'Round a Fire Pit
If you have a stationary or portable fire pit, fire it up and get cozy with some blankets and pillows. Romantic right? Plus, it's a great excuse to make s'mores too!
7. Visit a Brewery or a VINEYARD
Yeah, most breweries and vineyards are open year round, but there's something satisfying about beer/wine tasting hoping in the fall. Some wineries even give you the option of booking their tasting room for a private dinner, where you can sip fine wine and have a chef cook up a delicious meal.
8. Go Apple Picking
Yeah, a fall must! It's pretty self-explanatory, take your date and pick some apples. What the heck do you do with all the apples that you picked!? Bake an apple pie of course. Pies are pretty easy to make and you can even bring it to that picnic date. Boom.
