Fall is my very favorite season of them all! Every year I get so excited when summer hits and say that it’s my favorite season, and then when I get a glimpse of fall weather, rainstorms, leaves, etc. I remember just how much I love it! There are so many great things to do in the fall, it’s the start of new routines, it’s mine and my husband’s birthdays, and the weather is perfect! Every year I’m bummed out that the fall festivities don’t last clear through to the end of November, but I do everything I can to soak up all of the fall fun and date night opportunities for the month and a half that they’re available.
Fall Date Night Ideas in Davis County
See the fall leaves
It’s probably the most obvious fall date ideas, but one of my favorites! I love every opportunity we have to get up close and personal with the changing leaves. As they change in the mountains, we go for drives or hikes and as they change down in the valley, we walk on nature trails. This post from Play in Davis has some great suggestions for seeing the fall leaves in our area this year! I also loved our hike up the Wild Rose Trail this summer and think that it will be an amazing place to see leaves this year!
Drink hot chocolate
I look forward to cooler weather and the opportunity to pull out my hot chocolate maker or order my favorite cup from the local chocolate shop. Last year we posted this fun idea for a hot chocolate tasting date! This year I’m planning to have our hot chocolate tasting last all season long, grabbing a cup from a new location each week as part of date night, to help us find our favorite!
Visit a fall festival
I LOVE fall festivals and wish we could visit them all each year! My favorites are the ones that are hosted at local farms, not only because of how fun they are, but because they support local farmers and the local economy! Click here for our list of great fall festivals and activities in the area.
Carve or decorate pumpkins
We aren’t big on carving pumpkins at our house because it’s goopy and messy, but we still love to get pumpkins and decorate them in our own way. Click here for some fun pumpkin decorating date night ideas and a list of the best pumpkin patches in Davis County.
Have a picnic
Before the weather gets too cold, eat outside a few more times! We love dining on the patio at some of our favorite restaurants or packing a picnic to enjoy in the mountains after a hike or a drive to see the fall leaves.Play in Davis published this great list of restaurants in the area with patio dining. Some of the restaurants have closed since then and others have opened. We love any of the ones at Station Park as well!
Visit a haunted attraction
We’re not big on scary things in our relationship, but I know that a lot of people love the thrill and look forward to haunted houses all year round! Click here for a list of great haunted houses, attractions and locations in Davis County.
Make caramel apples
Head to an apple orchard or farm stand in Davis County and pick our some freshly grown apples. Then go to the store and grab caramels to melt and your favorite candies to put on caramel apples. Decorate your apples and enjoy eating them while you watch scary movies or sit outside and enjoy a fall storm.
Fishing dates can be fun year round, but there’s something that seems so perfect about fall weather and fishing together. Click here for ideas for fishing in the area.
Worth the Trip
Last year we crossed a date night activity off of my bucket list and went on a Full Moon Lift Ride up at Sundance resort! It didn’t disappoint and now I’m dreaming of an afternoon lift ride when the fall leaves are at the height of their color, followed by a short hike, dinner at the resort, and a Full Moon Lift Ride.
I hope you use these date night ideas to enjoy falling in love with each other again this season!
