Spring and summer get all of the credit for being perfect for romance, but in our opinion, fall is the season of love. Between the longer nights, cool crisp air, and high holiday spirits, fall provides an unbeatable atmosphere for romance. So, if you’re looking for some easy and fun fall date night ideas, we’ve got you covered. 

Hay rides: Hay rides are a traditional fall activity that can definitely set the stage for romance. This old-fashioned fun gives you plenty of opportunities to cuddle with your loved one, so bring a blanket and enjoy. 

Cozy bed and breakfast getaway: There’s something extra quaint about spending a night or two at a bed and breakfast. It’s more personal and intimate than your average hotel, so book a night or two and watch the sparks fly!

Apple picking: Few things say fall like heading to an orchard and picking apples. If there are no apple orchards near you, then there may be another seasonal fruit you can harvest. Sometimes farms that allow this have packages where you can have breakfast on site and make it more of an occasion. 

Take in the sites at a festival: Fall is festival season with events covering everything from crafts and jam to pie-making and bluegrass. You can plan a lazy day of strolling around the festival, and a night of dinner and snuggling around the fireplace.

Backyard bonfire: A bonfire proves that an activity doesn’t have to be fancy to be romantic. You can simply set a nice fire, and then make some cider & s’mores. Consider creating a playlist to accompany your evening fireside with mood-setting songs. 

Visit a brewery: While there is never a bad time to visit a brewery, it can be especially fun in the fall. Since many breweries make seasonal blends, you may be able to try some tasty fall-inspired blends. 

Of course, if the weather is so bad that you don’t, or can’t, leave your house, you can spend the evening watching old movies and cuddling. Top off your fall date night at home with fall-scented candles or incense, and a nice cocoa or cider. And there you have it, some easy and romantic date ideas that prove that fall is the true season of romance!
