Romantic Date Ideas to Fall in Love Again

Fall is unquestionably the most romantic season. Cozy sweaters, warm fireplaces, and beautiful scenery are just some of the many things that make fall the perfect time to reconnect and reignite the spark in your relationship. 

Whether you want to get out and enjoy the fall colors, or simply stay in and snuggle up next to a fireplace, there are plenty of ways to spend some quality time with your partner.

Have a Coffee Day at a Cafe

Nothing says fall like a pumpkin spice latte or hot chocolate. A coffee date at a cozy cafe is a perfect way to reconnect, sit together, and have a deep conversation. Bring along a few books to read while enjoying each other’s company. 

Enjoy Scary Movies Together

It’s spooky season! Snug up on your couch or bed, turn on the fireplace and settle in for a movie night. Don’t like scary movies? Put on silly Halloween flicks like Hocus Pocus, or fall-themed romantic movies instead. Don’t forget a cozy blanket to snuggle under together.

Get Scared in a Haunted House

Nothing brings couples together than shared screams and scares. Hold each other’s hands as you walk through the houses laughing and screaming. It also makes for great group dates. Invite your friends and their SO’s and break off into pairs, or, walkthrough as a group. 

Go Apple Picking

Apple picking is one of the best things to do in Connecticut and the perfect activity for the Fall season. Many orchards and farms also offer other fall fun, including corn mazes, pumpkin picking, hayrides, apple cider, and apple cider donuts. Don’t forget to take some fun fall pictures among the orchards! 

Couple's Spa at Delamar

Have a Spa Day

A bottle of body oil, a few candles, and background music to set the mood is all you need to give each other some much-needed massage therapy. Better yet, book yourself and your partner a spa day at Delamar Spas. All three of our Delamar Spa locations in Connecticut are open for all facials, massages, and body treatments. Our West Hartford Spa is also offering manicure and pedicure services.

Go on a Hike 

Going on a hike is a great way to relax, unwind and create memories. And did we mention the beautiful colors and fall foliage? Scenic trails can be found on nearly every corner of Connecticut and Michigan. Some of our favorites in Connecticut Westmoor Park Trail, Trout Brook Trail, West Hartford Reservoirs and Reservoir 6, Greenwich Audubon Center, and Talcott Mountain Trail. If you’re in Michigan, check out the 10.5 mile-long TART trail and the scenic 27-mile Sleeping Bear Heritage Trail.

Attend a Football Game

Fall is also the start of football season. Whether it’s cheering on a local high school, visiting your alma mater for a homecoming game or burning tickets for a professional team, nothing beats the excitement of a live game. Wear matching team merch and snap some photos to create memorable times at the stadium.

If you can’t attend a game in person, have a two person viewing party at home. Decorate your home with the team’s official colors and logos, put on matching team jerseys, whip up some popcorn, and get ready for a fun stay-at-home date with your partner. 

Cook Together

The way to a person’s heart is through their stomach. Cooking a special meal together with your partner makes for a great intimate and bonding moment. 

Don’t have chef-worthy skills? Book a reservation at your special local restaurant or do pick up. Our award-winning Delamar restaurants in Greenwich, Southport, and West Hartford are open for indoor/outdoor dining, and take-out. Our new Artisan Waterfront Restaurant & Tavern in Traverse City is also open with an innovative dining experience and magnificent views of Lake Michigan. 

Take a Weekend Trip

Weekend trips with your partner are a great way to relax, unwind, catch up and escape from the busy work life without traveling far from home. Connecticut and Michigan offer a wide range of activities for you to enjoy, from shopping, and museums, to orchards and outdoor hiking.

Delamar has three distinct locations throughout Connecticut in Greenwich, Southport, and West Hartford, as well as a waterfront location in Traverse City, Michigan, allowing you to explore and venture about while enjoying the utmost level of excellence in hospitality. When you choose to stay at Delamar, you can rejuvenate with our great amenities and luxurious attention to detail at every turn. Book your stay with us today and enjoy the Fall in New England & Grand Traverse County in all its glory.
