Oh how I love fall. Hoodies, bonfires, boots, hay rack rides, flannels, football games and awesome fall dates.
I’m one happy camper when I have a cup of cider in my hand, and pumpkin faces are lit up on my porch. Does fall make you happy too?
Another thing I love about fall is the romance in the air. Something about the leaves changing and the crisp air makes my heart tingle. Soak up that romantic feeling that’s swirling with over 30 romantically awesome fall dates you must experience this year.
Romantic Fall Date Ideas to Experience
#1 Make a fall bucket list together full of things you both enjoy about fall.
#2 Head to the local orchard for some apple picking. My favorite local orchard has Apple Cider Donuts that are perfect for fall. They often have live music on the patio which makes for a great fall date night outdoors.
#3 Hit the pumpkin patch without the kids. This is high on my list as I have never been without kids and it would be fun to stroll around without having to chase little runners.
#4 Fill your cups with a Boozy Pumpkin Cocktail and spend the evening carving pumpkins together.
#5 Get scared at haunted houses. One of my favorite fall date nights because it encourages closeness. At least for me who is always screaming and holding on to my husband for dear life.
#6 Visit local corn mazes and get lost together.
#7 Make homemade caramel apples together and munch on them while watch a movie. If you have an outdoor movie screen that is even better!
#8 Lace up your sneakers and head on hike. Fill mugs with hot cocoa to sip and take along a hiking scavenger for some extra fun.
#9 Get tickets to a local football game for high school, college, or pro depending on what is in your area. Every year our alma mater has a tailgate at the homecoming game that always makes for a great fall date idea.
#10 Take in a hay rack ride and bonfire. This is a great fall date to do with couple friends. Get a big group together and have everyone bring an item to roast over the fire afterwards.
