Fall Date Night Ideas for Married Couples

Fall is my very favorite season, and although the traditional activities that come with it only last for one month, we try to enjoy every minute of it! I created a list of date nights specifically for this season, to help you enjoy every moment of fall, from the changing weather to the cooler days. This list of date night ideas includes things that can be done at home or out on the town. It has activities for outdoor lovers and for those of us who prefer to stay indoors when it gets too cold. You can even take a few of the ideas and turn them into multiple dates depending on how you choose to participate in the activity each time. I hope this list inspires you to make date night a priority in your marriage and spend intentional quality time together this season!

With toddlers, it’s hard to get out and enjoy those summer nights, unless we have a babysitter.
