Best date ideas this fall in Toronto/GTA

The weather is getting colder, the leaves are beginning to change colour, and you hear everything about pumpkin spice. It’s official - we’ve entered fall! While there’s beauty in every season, fall is arguably one of the most beautiful and romantic of the seasons. The colder weather and warm drinks just make it a perfect time to get cozy.

Fall dates are exciting and there’s just so much you can do with your date. Here are some fun date ideas to enjoy all things fall.

Go apple picking

Apple picking is a classic daytime date idea. There are many apple farms in Toronto that you can visit such as Albion Orchards in Caledon and Chudleigh’s in Halton Hills. On top of picking apples and enjoying the fruits of your labor, it is also a perfect way to enjoy the fall foliage. Some of these farms also offer other fruit pickings and other activities you and your date can enjoy such as tractor rides.

Visit pumpkin farms

Fall dates don’t get any more classic than a visit to a pumpkin farm. Besides enjoying the pumpkins, most farms also offer a wide range of activities you and your date can enjoy such as getting lost in a corn maze, petting and feeding farm animals, wagon rides, entertainment, and lots of delicious fall-themed food such as pumpkin donuts.

Tour a vineyard

A vineyard date is another fun and romantic activity. Vineyard visits are often day trips and it is a great visit during fall for their cooler weather and season for enjoying wine. Most vineyards offer different courses to enjoy with your wine tastings, and it is just a romantic way to enjoy good food and taste different types of wines for lunch. Farms and vineyards are great places to enjoy fall, especially when the beautiful gradient of trees.

And of course… Take cooking classes together!

What better way to enjoy fall ingredients than learning to make dishes from scratch? This is a great way to spend time with your date, all while learning how to make different dishes. At the end of class, you can enjoy your dishes together. It can’t get any more fun and romantic than that!

Enjoy a drink at a fall beer festival

Make a toast to your date and enjoy a day at a fall beer festival. If farms or vineyards aren’t your thing, a fall beer festival is a great alternative. You can still enjoy various activities, live entertainment, and lots of great food and beer. One of these festivals includes Toronto’s Festival of Beer, happening on the 24th and 25th of September. Many beer brewers will gather during this festival for you to taste - a great way to enjoy a beer with your date!
