Top 5 Affordable and Festive Date Ideas for the Fall


We all know that dating can be pretty expensive! Whether you’re simply getting dinner or seeing a movie with your bae, those tabs can rack up quickly. However, there are a number of ways to enjoy your time with your significant other without breaking the bank. Check out five affordable and festive date ideas you and that special someone could do this fall!

1. Watch a marathon of horror movies at home

Did someone say Netflix and Chill? Netflix is just $10 a month and offers you a library with hundreds of shows and movies, so pick a day to lounge on the couch with one another and binge watch your favorite horror flicks. You can make the day even better by baking some sweet seasonal treats like pumpkin or apple pie, to pig out on together.

2. Enjoy the night at a high school or college football game

Football season is officially back and there’s no better way to show school spirit than hanging out at a game with your loved one. At most high schools and colleges, students receive major discounts on tickets, so take advantage of it and make it a date.

3. Do a fall inspired photo shoot

It’s safe to say that most of us have smartphones, which means that taking photos is as easy as 1-2-3! Doing a photo shoot together is the perfect excuse to go outdoors and enjoy the fall scenery. Plus, you get the excuse to snap tons of Instagram-worthy pictures of each other.

4. Visit a county fair

Nothing screams Fall more than going to a fair! From funnel cake to Ferris wheels, you and your partner are bound to have a blast without hurting your pockets. All you have to do is find a carnival near you.

5. Hit up the roller rink

It may not be time to go ice skating yet, but roller skating is equally as fun. Find your local rink and skate the night away with your boo. You’ll be bonding and breaking a sweat at the same time. Perfect, right?
