It’s that time of year where we want to do everything and anything fall related. Today, I’m sharing some easy, fun fall dates ideas for you and your significant other. Do you have other date ideas I forgot to mention? Make sure to share your date ideas in the comments below!

One of the reasons why I love fall dates in particular is because there are so many festive options that you can only do during the season. So get your pen and paper ready to add these ideas to your fall bucket list for the month.

1| Apple Picking

Take some time to get that gram-worthy photo of you with your beautiful apples you picked with your significant other, and then go home to make a pie or homemade applesauce.

2| Go On A Hike

Another way you can enjoy the fall leaves and the perfect temperatures is with a hike. Pack a light picnic and enjoy it at the end of your hike.

3| Take Photos With Fall Foliage

This is perfect for all my blogging friends. Let’s be honest, who doesn’t want to take advantage of the gorgeous leaves and take some photos for your Instagram?

4| Have A Bonfire

What’s better than having a cool evening of bonfires, beers and some Smores? Nothing. So get your boyfriend and some couple friends for a bonfire on a crisp, cool night.

5| Visit Fall Festivals

I LOVE fall festivals, and I’m going to two this season! They’re perfect if you love hayrides, corn mazes, pumpkin picking, apple cider donuts and more.

6| Carve Pumpkins

Take time to go through your local farms, and compete to find the best pumpkins. When you get home, you can see who comes up with the most creative design.

7| Go To A Haunted House/Hayride

I don’t like the feeling of being scared, but I don’t mind haunted hayrides or houses. Find your favorite one in your town for an easy, inexpensive date night.

8| Visit A Farmer’s Market

Get the most fresh fruits and vegetables you can find at your local farmer’s market. Take a bike ride into town and get all the best goods for some cooking.

9| Coffee Shop Hopping

Visit some local coffee shops in town for the best fall-themed drinks. See who has the best pumpkin spice latte, or caramel apple hot cider.

10| Watch Halloween Movies

I’m just saying, I currently have Halloweentown recorded, and I can’t wait to have a movie marathon with Josh and watch it. Have a lineup of your top movies for a night in.

11| Have A Bake Off

Use Pinterest to your advantage and look for the best pumpkin pie/bread/cake/cookie recipe and put your skills to the test with your boyfriend.

12| Visit A Corn Maze

I love going to corn mazes because they don’t cost a lot (most are even free), and it’s an easy way to get a little workout into your day date!

13| Go To A Football Game

Whether you have a local high school football team you support, or you visit a college game—grab some drinks and enjoy a game with big blankets and snacks.

14| Take A Scenic Drive

Take a coffee to go for a drive. Go somewhere you haven’t been, even if it’s a two-hour day trip. Enjoy the drive, explore a place you’ve never been, and take some photos, too.

15| Decorate Your Home

Make a day of DIY decorations, and buying inexpensive pieces for your home during fall. You’ll enjoy creating a festive home with someone you love.
