10 Fall Date Ideas

Fall is a great season for dating. The leaves are changing, it starts to cool down outside, and fall activities start to show up left and right! Whether you are dating, married, or just close friends, fall has an easy yet meaningful date activity fit just for you and your special someone.

Not sure where to take your special someone? Planning a group date and not sure what to do? Don’t worry, we can help! Try one of these 10 excellent date ideas:

  1. Pick apples from your local orchard. Wandering through an orchard with your special someone is relaxing and fun. It also gives you time to talk and get to know each other better, while providing an easy distraction (apples) if you run into any awkward lulls in conversation. Not sure where your local orchard is? Visit LocalHarvest to find farms and orchards in your area. Bonus tip: For a great follow-up date, get enough apples to make a homemade apple pie together!
  2. Carve pumpkins. Carving pumpkins is a great activity for a couple or a group, especially if you pick out your pumpkins together. All you need is a few knives, a few pumpkins, and you are good to go!
  3. Find your way through a corn maze. Check your local newspaper to find a corn maze in your area. Wandering through a corn maze is a great opportunity to talk and, if it is a bit chilly out, to get a little closer to stay warm. For a group date, see which couple can get through the maze the fastest.
  4. Visit a haunted house. Many schools and churches create haunted houses in October and November. If your special someone can handle the frights, a haunted house can be a blast. To make it extra special, visit the local Dairy Queen afterwards to laugh about the haunted house over a banana split.
  5. Take a stroll to enjoy the fall leaves. Fall weather and red, orange, and yellow leaves make a perfect combination for taking a stroll with your special someone. Be sure to bring a jacket so your lovely walk doesn’t turn into a shiverfest.
  6. Rake some leaves, then jump in them! Whether you are 15 or 35, playing in the leaves can be a lot of fun. Grab your date, grab a rake, and jump in!
  7. Go for a horseback ride. With a bit of planning, a horseback ride can provide hours of fun and a very memorable date experience. Visit Horse Rentals to find a local stable that provides trail riding rentals. Be sure to pack some water and a few snacks to share.
  8. Plan a picnic. By itself or in combination with a horseback ride, a picnic is a thoroughly enjoyable date. Unless you are an experienced picnicer, keep it simple. Some great meal items include peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, sodas, and baby carrots. Don’t forget silverware and napkins!
  9. Take a hike. Even relatively flat regions and cities have hiking trails or walking paths. Put on a pair of sturdy shoes or boots and enjoy the hike!
  10. Check out a fall festival or concert. Low on cash but still want to have a blast with your date? Check out a local fall festival or fall concert. In addition to providing great food, great music, and a pile of fun activities, most of them have free admission.
