Don’t let a new chill in the air dampen your time with your partner. Fall is the best time for several date activities.
Cooler temperatures can inspire some great date ideas. So grab your sweetie, a mug of hot chocolate, and consider these activities.
A Trip to the Pumpkin Farm
You don’t have to be a kid to enjoy a pumpkin farm. In fact, the nostalgia involved in choosing a pumpkin can help bond you both together as you recall childhood memories of field trips and favorite carvings you did in the past.
Many area farms and fresh produce stands offer hayrides in the cooler months. Snuggle up with your honey as you take in nature.
There’s nothing that sparks romance like holding on to your date as you meander through the spooky halls. Who ever thought Halloween could be romantic?
A Drive in the Country
If you’re lucky enough to live in an area that has a change of seasons you’ll be glad to take in the splendor of the red, gold, and russet leaves. If you don’t live in such an area, map out a day trip to the nearest town where you’ll spot the changing trees. The beauty of nature will inspire you to get cozy and romantic.
Harvest Fests and Craft Fairs
Autumn often brings festivals featuring homemade goods, fresh produce, and the best in craft projects. The hominess of fairs lends to a relaxed atmosphere – the perfect surroundings to get to know someone better.
If you’re both into a change of venue, maybe a horseback ride through the country will give you a lift. Many stables and farms have horseback riding lessons, so even if you’re not a pro you both can enjoy a day out in the country.
Visit An Apple Orchard
Take a drive to the nearest apple orchard and choose some gems to make a pie with. Baking together on a date is a great way to spend time and get to know each other.
Brunch is a nice idea any time, but it really seems to fit with cooler temperatures. Bonus if you find one that also serves champagne.
Many antique, toy, and book dealers like to get rid of their inventory before the winter months. Head out to a flea market – get there early – and search for a unique treasure. Finding out what you both are passionate about is a great way to find out if you’re compatible as well.
Sometimes the best dates are the simplest. Put your hiking boots or best sports shoes on and take a hike through a leaf-filled trail. Work up your appetite for a nice lunch when you’re finished.
There’s much more than just veggies at farmer’s markets these days. Pick up some fruit, flowers, or even books. Better yet, take a camera and scrapbook the picturesque scenes of still life.
Wine Tastings and Vineyards
There’s something very romantic about the time tested traditional of making wine. Visit a winery, or better yet, a local vineyard and learn about the process. Then buy a bottle or two for dinner later.
