Go pumpkin- or apple-picking.
Pumpkin or apple picking are essential fall activities. Go pumpkin picking with your love, and take the pumpkin home for carving. Two activities in one! Or, go apple picking, and figure out something to make or bake with the apples you pick. Again – two activities in one!
Explore a corn maze.
Corn mazes are fun. There’s something about everyone trying to make their way out of somewhere that adds excitement. It’s a silly and fun activity, one that hopefully will take you less than an hour.
Take a walk.
Walk through the beautiful fall foliage and enjoy the cooler weather as you walk. Take pictures, if you like. Be sure to look up at the trees more than down. Crunch through the leaves on the ground.
Have a picnic.
Fall is the perfect time to have a picnic. The bugs are dying, the air is cooling, and there’s a blanket of leaves on the ground. Take a big blanket or two or three, a few games, some picnic food, and maybe some alcohol (to help keep warm) and have a grand old time.
Have a Netflix binge-session.
Crack open a window, light a fire, make some tea or cocoa, pop some popcorn, and snuggle in blankets and pillows to watch five seasons of an old favorite or a new obsession. You can take breaks to make more tea or popcorn where you can talk about the show or anything else. Be sure to order delivery, to make the night complete!
Go to a bookstore.
Ah, the bookstore. The perfect non-date date. You can choose to go your separate ways and peruse the books, or you can sit in the comedy or romance section and read to each other and have a good laugh.
Watch some scary movies.
Personally, I have never enjoyed scary movies. I’m easily startled, and jump-scares can and often do begin a panic attack in me. But some people sure enjoy scary movies. Find some favorites and use it as an excuse to get closer – adrenaline can increase affection, and scary content can be an excuse to cuddle.
Go to a game.
This could mean your local football team, or a game at the end of the baseball season. Either way, live sports are always fun. Get some beers and hot dogs and cheer. Don’t forget to bumdle up – or do, it’s another excuse to cuddle!
Go on a ghost walk.
Perhaps the most or second-most famous holiday of the fall is Halloween. Autumn nights with a chill in the air are the ideal time to walk around your city and learn about the famous local hauntings. Is that just a breeze, or did a ghost just walk by?
Attend a fall festival.
You can see the livestock, or eat festival food, or ride the rides. There’s enough at a county fall festival to keep anyone occupied for a few hours. Plus, with the combination of the leaves and the neon lights, it’s a great place to snap some pictures!
