20 Adorable Fall Date Ideas You Need to Try
Below are 20 adorable Fall date ideas you need to try. Understandably, this year may look a little different in regards to there being a world pandemic, however these are still activities you can participate in. I’m hoping I can look back on writing this paragraph in a few years from now and say that we’ve come full circle and most of these things on the list we can do without a second thought! As always, stay safe out there loves! And of course, wear your masks!
1. Cider & Sunsets
We all know the sun starts to set just a little earlier in the fall, so take advantage of it while the sun doesn’t set at 4pm! Pack a thermos full of hot apple cider, snag some cozy blankets and find yourself the perfect perch to watch the sun go down.
2. Go Apple Picking
Nothing says fall like filling a bag full of delicious, crisp apples. Almost a right of passage for any couple, it’s time to head to the apple orchard and cross it off your bucket list! Of course, this may be the place to snag the perfect fall couples photo! Just think of all the pies you can bake now!
3. Share a Hay Ride
Whether you pick a haunted one or not, going on a hay ride is never a bad time! Get cozy and hold onto each other tight (especially if you chose a haunted one)!
4. Visit a Pumpkin Patch
Like apple picking, visiting a pumpkin patch is pretty much a right of passage for any relationship. Head out to the patch and pick few pumpkins. Don’t be afraid to indulge in a few of the fall treats they have – you can’t go wrong with a pumpkin flavoured treat!
5. Go For a Drive Through the Trees
Hop in the car and GO! Find yourself a route that takes you through the fall foliage. Play some classic fall tunes, turn up the heat and maybe even grab yourself the perfect drink to take along. See where the roads take you and enjoy the fall scenery.
6. Go Wine Tasting
In my opinion there’s never a bad time to go wine tasting, and fall is no exception! Sample some delicious wine and go for a walk through the vineyard! See if they have any seasonal samples for you to try!
7. Attend a Fall Festival
Who can resist a fall festival? Take a look at your local roster and see what’s going on in your area! Who can say no to pumpkins and hayrides, am I right? Get in the fall spirit and throw on your best flannel and away you go!
8. Go for a Hike
Fall is personally my favourite time of year to hike! You get the benefits of all of the beautiful scenery and there are no bugs! Bundle up with your boo and head out on an adventure. Enjoy the crisp fall air and breathtaking views!
9. Evening Bonfire
Whether you’re heading out camping or live just outside the city, throw a bonfire on and get cozy! Marshmallows optional of course, but nothing beats the smell of a bonfire in the cool autumn air!
10. Carve Pumpkins Together
Who can carve the scariest? The silliest? Carve the pumpkins you already picked up from your pumpkin patch date and let your creative juices flow! Place them on the porch after to show them off!
11. Go Horseback Riding
Going for a nice, slow ride out on the trails at this time of year is the perfect fall date setting. Enjoy the fresh air and take on a new adventure!
12. Visit the Farmer’s Market
Local produce is always the way to go! Support your local farmer’s and head to the nearest farmer’s market! You’ll find a plethora of fresh fruits and vegetables, as well as some homemade goodies. You can usually find an array of sauces, spreads and homemade treats at the market too!
13. Scary Movie Marathon
Blankets, snacks and each other are all you’re going to need! Line up a scary movie marathon and see who can hold out the longest!
14. Visit a Small, Nearby Town for The Day
Picture this: small town charm but with the added beauty of fall! Visit a nearby small town and spend the day there. Bonus points if you can find some local fall themed treats. Make a day out of your adventure!
15. Make Your Own Candy Apples
Messy? Probably. Worth it? ABSOLUTELY! Candy apples are a delicious treat brimming with childhood memories. Learning how to make them with your partner can be a sweet date night in (just check out Pinterest for recipes)!
16. Weekend Getaway: Log Cabin or Cottage Style
Disappear into the forest for a weekend with your significant other and submerse yourself in the fall foliage. Nothing better than a weekend getaway in a cozy log cabin! Be sure to bring your comfy clothes and blankets and make a weekend of hiking and snuggling by the fire!
17. Fall Themed Picnic
Bring on the hearty foods & pumpkin treats! Head out somewhere in the sun with a delicious spread of heartier foods – think thermoses full of soup and cider, apples, pumpkin treats etc. Go all out with a fall themed picnic!
18. Watch a Football Game
Nothing screams Fall more than football! Head out to a local game or catch it on TV if you’re unable to make the trek! If you’re doing it from home, make sure you’ve got a complete Football Food spread!
19. Star Gazing in a Truck Bed/Trunk
Pile in the blankets, pillows and cozy things and head out of town to where you can see the stars. Bonus – make a playlist to go along with it. Nothing screams adorable more than stargazing when it gets a little chilly out!
20. Bake a Fall Treat Together
Apples and pumpkins, my oh my! Pies, cookies, cakes and more – there’s no shortage of ideas when it comes to fall baking! Make some sweet treats together (the apples you picked in date idea #2 would come in handy now)!
Have you tried any of these date ideas? Let me know in the comments! Happy Fall dating!
You’ve got some great ideas here. Last night, we actually combined a number of these in one fun evening. We sat around the fire pit in our back yard enjoying a warm fire well into the night, listening to some of our favourite music. Then, we took my husband’s cast iron dutch oven and made homemade apple cider on the fire. It was amazing!
I love this!! It sounds like you had the perfect Fall date (I’m totally jealous right now!)!
