Pumpkin Patch Date
This one is of course a classic for a Texas fall date idea, going to a pumpkin patch and choosing the right one. This can be the start to a fun date which could be that you choose your favorite pumpkin and then later make plans to carve them, paint them, or cook them.
In addition to choosing your pumpkin at a pumpkin patch, many places also have the following activities to check out:
- Hay ride
- Carnival Foods
- Apple Orchards
- Cider Tasting
Here are some places to check out:
- Love Creek Orchards in Medina, TX
- Sweet Berry Farm in Marble Falls, TX
- Pumpkin Patch at Float-In in New Braunfels, TX
Get creative with food
It’s the best time to visit some local farmers markets and to pick some in season produce. You can then take your produce home and make something creative, whether that is something you will bake, drink, an appetizer, or your main entree.
Some examples are:
- Roasting pumpkin seeds
- Having warm apple cider
- Make a squash medley
- Baking an apple pie
Attend a local festival
The best part of going to a festival is trying out some new food and/or drinks.
Here are some to check out:
Watch a Scary Movie
Many of these ideas do suggest going outdoors and something more social, but if that is not you, sometimes just cuddling up together and watching a scary movie together can be fun too!
- Pull out your air mattress, get comfy with your blankets, and make some popcorn (this is literally what my husband and I do)
