5 Creative and Fun Fall Date Ideas

Posted by Ria, 01 Oct 14

The weekend is approaching and you have yet again been tasked with thinking of a fun, yet affordable date idea. Do you fall back on the old, overplayed dinner-and-a-movie routine? Or do you surprise your special someone with a creative date that will knock his or her socks off? Whether it's the first date or you've been married for years, this is the perfect time of year to get outside and do something different, yet romantic.

For The Early Risers

Your perfect partner could be online right now...

What are you looking for?

If you don't have a problem with early mornings, switching up your routine with an A.M. date can be refreshing and fun. Now that the weather is cooling, go for a Saturday morning hike or leisurely bike ride. Even if you just have time to go out for coffee before work, it can be a nice interlude to your busy week.

For The Foodies

If you're the type of couple who likes checking out the latest restaurant, try something a little different (and more affordable) by cooking for each other at home with farm fresh ingredients. It's harvest season, and this time of year there are lots of weekend farmer's markets, orchards and farms that offer "you pick" apples and pumpkins and other produce. Sites like LocalHarvest.org can help you find a market or farm near you where you can venture out together to pick up fresh ingredients. Then head home to make something delicious.

For The Adventurous

If you're itching for an adrenaline-fueled outing, try taking your sweetheart out for an off-roading adventure. What's more romantic than exploring the changing leaves and feeling the crisp autumn air on the back of an ATV or dirt bike? Riderplanet-USA.com helps you find off-roading trails in your area and you can either take your own bikes and ATVs or rent them for the day. If you're new to riding a dirt bike or similar vehicle, brush up on safety tips and make sure you have the right protective gear. Taking to the trails might be one of your best dates ever, but nothing can ruin it faster than a broken wrist.

For The Social Butterflies

Oktoberfests, music festivals, fun runs, fairs - fall is a great time for an outdoor party with a few thousand of your closest friends. There are lots of events to attend this time of year that will get you into the autumn spirit and impress your significant other. Check out FairandFestivals.net to find events near you or check with local sites. Whether you're tasting beer and sausage, dancing to music, checking out an art show or riding a ferris wheel, there is bound to be a fall festival that fits your interests.

For The Nature Lovers

As mentioned before, one of the most romantic things about fall is the beautiful changing leaves and colors. Take a day trip or even a weekend getaway out of the city to get in touch with nature and spend some time with just the two of you. The National Park Service offers a "find a park" database to find the perfect national or state park near you. Take pictures together with the colorful trees, go bird watching or cuddle up by a campfire. Make sure you check park fees and hours, as some parks change hours or even close when the weather gets colder.

So which idea appeals more to you?
