Date Ideas for Fall

Fall and spring are by far my most favorite times of year. The weather is perfect and there are so many things going on that are fun and fairly inexpensive. And...what better way to participate in those things than with your love bug?!?!

Here are a few of my favorite "date-like" things to do while the weather is perfect and pumpkin beer is in season!!!

// BEERFEST - Tis the season for beer and wine fests all over the place. Use the Beer Advocate app or check out their webpage to find out all the festivities going on around you. It's the perfect time to get a little "drunk in love" with your main squeeze!!

// HAUNTED HOUSE - Of course I'm going to include the Haunted House. Halloween is BY FAR my favorite time of the year and the hubby and I love hitting up all the haunts around our area.

// HORROR MOVIE NIGHT - What better way to celebrate during this time of year then to cuddle up with your man and get scared to death!! It's also SUPER CHEAP!! The Goober and I LOVE horror movies and we always make it a point to share a few nights wrapped around each other with some dranks watching all the classics and a few new ones.

// WINERY or BREWERY -  Wineries offer all kinds of activities during this season. And, while my husband won't go with me to the winery (he thinks it all tastes like rubbing alcohol) your men might be a little more refined. Many wineries have music fests or wine pairing dinners for a small fee. Or just go to a tasting and sample a few of the local wines. If your husband is like mine, make it a girl's day or head to the local brewery and get a few flights!

// BALL GAMES - It's football season!! We all know tickets for football games are a bit expensive, so if you can't afford it, check out your local or former high school or Pop Warner teams. Baseball is still in season, too, and tickets to a baseball game are a little more affordable.

// ZOO - I LOVE the zoo but whenever I'm off in the summer it always seems like it's going to be too hot to go walk around a stinky zoo all day. But, the fall is perfect!! Check out your local events or Beer Advocate for possible Brew at the Zoo opportunities, too!!

// CORN MAZE or PUMPKIN PATCH - Corn mazes are so much fun and can be found all over during the fall. If it were Mike and I I'm sure we would find a way to smuggle in some drinks, but just getting that alone time is good enough. Same thing with a pumpkin patch. Nothing beats getting to actually go and pick your own pumpkin. Mike and I have a competition every year who can carve the best pumpkin to go with the shape and it's a blast.

What's your favorite fall date?


  1. I'm really excited for our first wedding anniversary this year, mostly because it's in the fall (just like my birthday!) and fall dates are just so fun and romantic. I really want to go apple picking and hide a message in an apple, or something!
