11 Great Fall Date Ideas in the Rockford Area
I have put together a list of what I think would be the best way to spend a fall afternoon, night, or overnight, for those who love fall.
Fall Date Idea #1 - Farmer's Market
Spend the morning or afternoon at one of the area farmers markets. Stock up on fresh veggies and make your own salsa together. And guys, while your there... buy your lady some fresh flowers.
Fall Date Idea #2 - Scenic Walk and Picnic
Take a scenic walk at Rock Cut State Park, downtown Rockford by the river, or at one of the Forest Preserves. Hold hands, breathe in the fresh air and admire all of the beautiful color-changing leaves, while also adoring the one you love. Lay down a blanket and enjoy some snuggle time on a crisp fall afternoon. Maybe have a picnic. Bring a thermos of hot chocolate (and don't forget the Bailey's).
Fall Date Idea #3 - Scary Movie Night
Rent a scary movie and have a night in. If the relationship is new, this will guarantee some close encounters.
Fall Date Idea #4 - Visit a Winery
Tour some of the area's wineries. Stock up on wine. Cranberry is a must for this time of year! Some of them even have live music on the weekends.
- McEacheron Homestead winery
- DC Estates winery
- Famous Fossil winery
- Northleaf winery
Fall Date Idea #5 - Apple Orchard
Visit an apple orchard. Drink cider, eat donuts, hand pick your favorite kinds of apples together. When you get home, look up a recipe. Then spend the evening with your love while playing all of your favorite music and dancing in the kitchen.
Fall Date Idea #6 - Pumpkin Carving
Carve pumpkins together. Save the pumpkin seeds and bake them whatever way you would like for yet another delicious fall snack.
Fall Date Idea #7 - Horseback Riding
If you're feeling a little adventurous, go horse back riding at Lockwood Park. This is another great way to witness the beauty of fall.
Fall Date Idea #8 - Backyard Camping
Go camping in your backyard. Make a bonfire, cook S'mores, play hide and go seek in the dark, lay out and look at the stars and find constellations.
Fall Date Idea #9 - A Night In
Plan a night in with your honey. Make a fire, drink wine, read a book together, light some great smelling fall candles.
Fall Date Idea #10 - Photoshoot
Hire a photographer to do a romantic photoshoot of the two of you, or ask a friend to take the pictures. Then use the pictures for your Christmas card.
Fall Date Idea #11 - Day Trip
Take a day trip to Galena. Enjoy the scenery, visit the shops. Sip wine, eat amazing food, bring home some specialty coffees. You won't struggle to find things to do in Galena
Have fun FALLing in love.
