Call us basic if you must, but we love fall. And you know what else we love? Date nights. Plus, date nights are vital for keeping a relationship fun and exciting so all the more reason to plan them. The trick to date night is that sometimes when it does come to planning one, that part can be difficult. But lucky for you, we’ve taken the guesswork out of that! So sit back and relax with an ice-cold PSL while you plan all of your spooky season date nights.
Apples and pears are among many fruits that are in season throughout the fall, which means you’re just one Google search away from finding what orchards are within just a few miles of where you live that allow guests to pick their fruit. While you don’t have to wear color-coordinating outfits to snap a few ~adorable~ photos, you could totally do so if you desired. Just a friendly reminder to check the weather before you go! Then once you’re home with your haul, turn on your favorite Halloween movies and bake a pie or fruit crisp together.
If you and your partner fancy tasting craft beers, then consider having a small Oktoberfest in the comfort of your own home. We recommend beer flights and a charcuterie board full of Oktoberfest delicacies such as soft pretzels, sausages, and potato pancakes.
If you’re both really into Halloween movies, both of the scary and non-scary variety, set up a little at-home movie theater outdoors. You can do this easily with a laptop, or if you want to take it to the next level, we recommend a projector, a sheet as a makeshift screen, lots of pillows to snuggle up with, and, of course, concessions. And the best part? Concessions can be whatever you want them to be.
Our idea of a perfect fall day trip is taking a scenic train ride to a town we’ve never been to before. Some excursions are scenery based only but include a fun little lunch while sitting aboard a historic train. Whichever type of excursion you opt for it gives you plenty of opportunity for you and your person to do something you’ve never done before and explore a town you’ve never gotten to explore before.
We could never put into words how much we love to sit back and relax by a beautiful lake surrounded by miles and miles of fall foliage. If this is your idea of the perfect fall day as well, then we recommend renting an Airbnb in the mountains or on the lake with your sweetie. You can spend your days hiking trails, exploring nearby towns, then spending your evenings cooking dinner together, and reading or watching movies.
