Ah, how can anyone not enjoy the fall? With the gorgeous colors the leafs turn, the crisp cool air, and the wonderful smells. Most people don’t seem to think of fall as a particularly romantic season, but I think those people are wrong. There isn’t much more romantic than cool autumn walks through the glorious foliage, hearing the leafs crunch under your feet, or staring longingly into your lovers’ eyes over a pair of pumpkin spiced lattes. Everything about fall sparks romance: snuggling “for warmth”, romantically admiring the changing of the leafs hand-in-hand, admiring the way the cool autumn breeze rustles your lovers’ hair…There’s nothing like it. With the next fall season rapidly approaching, it is time to start planning all of the fun activities we don’t want to miss out on before fall is over. For those of you at a loss for fun date ideas for the upcoming fall months here are some suggestions for fun things to do with your sweetie this upcoming season: Go Apple Picking
There isn’t a lot more romantic in the fall than being out in the midst of the beautifully colorful landscape. What better way to get outside with your significant other than to go apple picking as you stroll through the beautiful orchards? Perhaps you could even take a cozy hay ride while you’re there and bake an apple pie together once you’re done.
Visit a Corn Maze and/or a Pumpkin Patch
Sometimes the best date ideas stem from years and years of traditions. What better way to get closer to your sweetie than having to work together to make it out of the corn maze or picking and carving pumpkins together? Enjoy the fun and exciting opportunities this season has to offer to full fall capacity with your significant other!
Go to a Haunted House
For the thrill seekers out there- what better way to get your lover close to you than to have them holding onto you for dear life in one of St. Louis’s haunted houses? Show your partner that you’re still daring and full of youthful excitement (unless you have a heart condition, of course).
Take a Walk at the Park
