Romantic Fall Date Ideas

Fall is just around the corner, and I absolutely can’t wait for all the romantic fall date ideas!

Stunning colors, cozy sweaters, warm drinks, and lots and lots of cuddling. Adventurous activities, spooky nights, and crisp air.

What more could you want to help bring you closer to your partner?

If you’re needing help with something in your relationship, it might be helpful to talk to an online couples counselor. All couples could benefit from therapy!

Fall time is the best

I hold autumn very close to my heart, because it’s around the time my fiance and I started dating seven years ago.

The fall time is when fell in love.

We spent so much time together enjoying fall activities and growing more and more in love.

And it’s with the help of my fiance that I came up with this list of 35 romantic fall date ideas.

Can you guess which ones he came up with?

Fun and Romantic Dates for Autumn

1. PUMPKIN PATCH

Go to a pumpkin patch and help pick out each other’s pumpkins.

Try and find the biggest, most goofy looking ones!

2. GET LOST IN A CORN MAZE

Fill up a tumbler of hot cider, wear flannel, and hold hands while you get lost in a gigantic corn maze.

3. LOOK AT HALLOWEEN DECORATIONS

When it gets too cold to walk, drive around town and award the house with the best Halloween decorations.

Which house has the most cartoony decorations? Which one has the scariest?

4. HORROR MOVIE MARATHON

Snuggle up to each other with popcorn and have a horror movie marathon.

I highly recommend watching the Conjuring series.

More on horror movies:

5. DISNEY HALLOWEEN MARATHON

If horror movies aren’t your style, how about some Disney classics like Hocus Pocus, Halloweentown, or Under Wraps?

More Halloween movies:

6. ATTEND FRIGHT FEST

If your local amusement park has a Halloween theme during the fall time, make an adventurous date out of it.

For example, Six Flags has Fright Fest every year.

7. HAVE A BONFIRE

Spend a night outside next to a bonfire.

Roast some marshmallows and maybe invite other couples and have a double date.

8. WATCH GHOST ADVENTURES

It’s basically mine and my fiance’s Sunday night ritual to watch taped episodes of Ghost Adventures.

For all things spiritual (including tarot, astrology, aliens, and ancient history) start your free Gaia trial today, which is like a metaphysical Netflix!
 
You can also watch ghost hunting YouTubers, such as Brittney Crabb, Sam and Colby, Hailey Reese, and Exploring with Fighters.

9. GO ON A GHOST TOUR

Have you ever been on a ghost tour? Whenever I travel, ghost tours are number one on my activity list.

You can find fantastic ghost hunting deals on Groupon

10. GO ON A CEMETERY TOUR

Like ghost tours, Groupon has excellent deals on cemetery tours.

11. PLAY HORROR VIDEO GAMES

Until Dawn is an incredible, legit horror game.

My fiance also really recommends the Resident Evil games.

More on video games:

12. DECORATE YOUR HOUSE & YARD

You can find a bunch of awfully cheap decorations at Dollar Tree.

Also, check your local thrift stores for decor items. A lot of the times you can find handmade, one-of-a-kind pieces!

13. MAKE SPOOKY TREATS

There’s a ton of unique, spooky treat recipes on Pinterest.

14. BAKE A PIE

Bake a pumpkin or apple pie together.

15. MAKE A  HAUNTED GINGERBREAD HOUSE

Instead of making a Christmas gingerbread house, make a haunted house!

Decorate with orange, black, and purple candies and sprinkles, candy corns, and black licorice.

16. VISIT THE FARMER’S MARKET

Buy some in season, fall veggies and go home and make a mouthwatering, homemade vegetable soup together.

17. TELL GHOST STORIES

Grab a flashlight, turn off the lights, and tell your favorite ghost story.

18. READ FROM GHOST STORYBOOKS

If you don’t want to make up your own ghost story, rent some ghost storybooks from the library and read them out loud to each other.

Turn off all the lights and tell the stories by candlelight.

19. GO APPLE PICKING

Go to an apple orchard and fill a basket of delicious apples.

20. CARVE A PUMPKIN

Buy a pumpkin from a pumpkin patch or grocery store and carve out the best Jack-O-Lantern you possibly can.

Do you prefer scary or goofy Jack-O-Laterns?

21. GO HIKING

Set your sights on the changing leaves and breathe in the crisp air.

Plus, no more bugs!

22. HAVE A FALL PHOTOSHOOT

The colors are breathtaking this time of year, and it’s the perfect time to take some couple’s pictures.

23. GO ON A HAYRIDE

If you’re up to it, go on a haunted hayride.

24. RAKE THE LEAVES & PLAY IN THEM

Who said jumping in leaves was only for kids?

25. PLAY GHOST IN THE GRAVEYARD

Go back to your childhood roots and play Ghost in the Graveyard.

26. VISIT A HAUNTED HOUSE

It seems like every year, haunted houses get scarier and scarier.

Also, if you haven’t watched Houses October Built, what are you waiting for?! 

27. GO SEE A DRIVE-IN MOVIE

Drive-In theaters are kind of rare these days, but if you’re lucky enough to live by one, grab a blanket and watch a movie under the stars.

28. WATCH CHARLIE BROWN

Tune in for It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown.

It’s a true classic!

29. ATTEND A FOOTBALL GAME

Bring a blanket and snuggle up to each other on the bleachers as you root for your favorite team.

30. HAVE A COSTUME CONTEST

See who can come up with the scariest or funniest costume.

Bonus points if you use whatever you already have in your home.

31. STARGAZE

Grab a blanket, head to your roof, and cuddle underneath the stars.

32. TAKE A DAY TRIP

Explore a nearby town as one last adventure before the weather gets too cold.

Can you spot historic landmarks and learn more about the history?

33. RENT A CABIN IN THE WOODS

Stay the night in a cozy cabin surrounded by delicious fall colors.

Did you know you can rent an entire cabin of Airbnb for cheaper than a hotel room? Get $35 OFF your first visit with my link!

34. SNUGGLE UP TO A FIRE

Put on fuzzy socks and grab a cup of hot apple cider and snuggle up next to your fireplace.

Bonus points if it’s nighttime, and you have all the lights off.

Ride the fun rides under beautiful fall foliage and decorations.
