Summer is gone (good riddance, honestly — you can keep your sweat and bugs) which means fall is finally, officially here. And with the sweater weather, shorter days, and turning leaves comes a whole series of fall-specific activities we can enjoy before winter comes and we are forced to retreat indoors and start putting up holiday decorations. Another thing that fall also brings? Cuffing season. The practice of hunkering down with a new boo for the colder months starts now, and you may find yourself in need of fall date ideas to make it happen.
Critics of fall have called it the most basic of all the seasons. And let's be honest — with all of its flannel, and rain boots, and Instagrams of people artfully curling up to a warm Pumpkin Spice Latte in a cozy oversized sweater — they're not entirely wrong. But there's nothing wrong with being basic. There's a reason so many "basic" things are so popular — because they're great! Have we as a nation pushed the concept of Pumpkin Spice Latte to its outermost limit? Definitely. Does that make it any less enjoyable? Nope.
One of the greatest strengths of the "basic" is having a seemingly unending list of fun, charming, Instagrammable activities in which to partake. Whether it's a weekend getaway or a quick meet-up after work, basic fall activities are a great way to enjoy the season, and then post all about it on Instagram with a simple fall leaf emoji.
And if you want to spice up your enjoyment of basic fall pleasures even more, what's more, they also make for excellent date ideas. So instead for drinks after work again, why not try something new? Or, take yourself on a little fall date. Regardless of who you go with, here are some fall date ideas that are super basic, but definitely worth doing anyway.
