Fall Date Ideas – Free or Cheap
Dating – whether you just met that special person or have been married for 20 years – is fun, and an important part of life. Spending a fortune doesn’t have to be part of the process though! With these free and cheap fall date ideas, you won’t have to worry about going broke.
Fall Date Ideas (That Won’t Leave Your Pockets Empty):
Visit a winery or brewery. If you’re lucky enough to have a winery and a brewery in your area, this could be two separate dates! 🙂 Some breweries offer free tours and tastings, and most wineries do as well. Walking around a vineyard, sampling wines, taking pictures, holding hands and taking in the crisp, Autumn air is as romantic as it gets! Heading to the beautiful and sunny Okanagan? Here are 5 Okanagan wineries you have to visit!
Star gazing. With technology, a stargazing date can be amazing. Find the perfect spot, and lay out a blanket or two and some pillows. If there aren’t any stars out yet, talk or watch a movie on your tablet until it’s dark enough to see the beauty in the night sky. Pack some snacks and make it a picnic – and don’t forget the bug spray!
Fall festivals. These can be free, but they can also get expensive. Whether you spend the day people-watching or taking in a classic car show, Fall festivals can be so much fun! In some areas, Fall festivals also have free concerts. This would make a great day or night date, depending on the weather.

Hay rides. At most churches, orchards, and pumpkin patches, hayrides are free or super cheap (like a buck)! We like to go apple picking, because they have an “all you can eat” policy while you’re out on the tour. So, take your time, eat a few apples, and enjoy the hay ride there and back.
Local football game. It doesn’t have to be the NFL to be fun to watch, right? Right. So, take your honey – and a blanket if it’s chilly – and watch the local high school or college football game. Sometimes it costs a few bucks to get in, but you can bring your own food so you don’t have to settle for concession stand goodies.
Haunted House Tours. I haven’t found any free haunted house tours yet, but there are always coupons and discounts – and a chance to win them by calling into radio stations! Many cities and towns (like San Diego) even have haunted walking tours of cemeteries and such.
DIY date! In September or early October, get together and make your Halloween costumes! This can be fun – and hilarious – and then you can take a second date to a local costume contest.
