The fall season isn’t about rainy, lazy days, seasonal depression and indoor activities. It’s about fun, love and creativity. These fall-inspired date ideas can help you jazz up your relationship and get out of a boring rut. Just because the temperatures drop doesn’t mean you have to limit your dates to dinner and a movie night only. Fall is the perfect time for hay rides, orchards, and for enjoying the crisp air outside. Enjoy the season with your significant other by trying out any of these amazing fall date ideas.
1. Take a hayride
When the air is crisp, taking a hayride is a must-try activity, especially if you two live in a big city. All you need is a hoodie, a pair of jeans, boots, and of course, a wonderful mood and a positive mindset. If you and your partner are not allergic to hay, it’s time to take a hayride!
2. Pick apples
Apple picking is one of the most common fall activities that you can easily turn into a fun fall date idea. It can also be a perfect place to grab your camera and take plenty of great photos! Pick a bunch of apples and make a sweet apple pie together tonight. It’s a cheap idea that won’t wreck your budget.
3. Attend fall festivals and fairs
There are plenty of wonderful fall festivals and fairs out there so why not attend one of them? My partner and I like attending the arts and crafts fairs in the fall, when we don’t have to worry about being too sweaty and tired because of unbearably hot weather. If you are short on cash, look for free or budget-friendly festivals that will help you save your hard-earned money and bring some fun into your relationship.
