Fall is the most romantic season. The cooler weather brings opportunities for snuggling outdoors or indoors, going on leaf-peeping trips, getting lost in a corn maze, and decorating pumpkins. Whether you’re a new couple, engaged, or married, there are tons of romantic and cozy fall activities to reconnect and reignite the romance in your relationship. I’ve rounded up eight fall date ideas for you and your significant other to explore during this season of cozy.
Peep some leaves
Fall is a “leaf-peeping” season. If you live where the leaves change color, check out a fall foliage map to determine when the trees in your area will be the most vibrant. Once you figure this out, take a romantic walk while holding hands, and peep the beautiful fall foliage together.
Have a scary movie marathon at home
There is nothing more romantic than having a scary movie marathon in the comfort of your home. Turn on the fireplace, snuggle next to your significant other, and check out the scariest movies available on Netflix right now for a chill night indoors.
Explore a corn maze
Whether you’re getting lost in a corn maze together or sneaking in hidden kisses among the rows, this date idea can be romantic and adventurous at the same time. Be sure to check if the corn maze in your area has any Halloween-themed events such as moonlight mazes or haunted mazes for a festive date experience.
Geocaching is a global treasure hunt of people looking for “caches,” or hidden containers of objects. Seekers use navigational techniques to hunt down the hidden containers (caches) at locations marked by coordinates around the world. If you and your significant other are looking for an adventurous fall date, check out Geocaching.com or download the app to find a treasure hunt in your area.
Carve and decorate pumpkins
Visit a pumpkin farm and pick up a few pumpkins for a pumpkin carving date night with wine. You can always use the pumpkins to stage as fall home decor after.
Go apple picking
Apple orchards are a cute date spot because you can do multiple activities during the day. You can pick apples, take a romantic stroll under the trees, or eat delicious doughnuts or apple pie.
Explore fall-themed fairs and festivals
‘Tis the season for Oktoberfests, craft beer fairs, renaissance festivals, chili cook-offs, and more. Whether you’re looking to try new craft beers, eat delicious apple cider doughnuts or sneak in a few kisses when the Ferris wheel stops at the top, there is a fall-themed festival for you and your significant other.
Go camping and light a bonfire
The fall season brings colder weather, perfect for stargazing, and heating up s’mores with your significant other around the bonfire. If spending time outdoors is too chilly or you’d rather spend time at home, you can always enjoy a bonfire in your living room or in your backyard. You’ll still get the same cozy feeling and romantic date night vibes.
