There are a few reasons fall and ~cuffing season~ coincide: It’s the most picturesque time of year, the weather is ideal for hoodie swapping, Netflix & Chill and pumpkin-spiced dates. Whether you’ve been successfully cuffed or going for some QT with your bestie, Fall is the perfect dating season so I made this list of must-do dates to spend the spooky season with your boo 👻😜.
I absolutely LOVE the fair so I may be a bit biased 😂. The food is amazing, the rides are hella fun, and the instagram opportunities are in plenty! It may be totally high school but how often do we get to chill with fur babies in petting zoos or watch the LOYL fight for your undying love at Bust The Balloon 🙃. Whether you’re into rides or just going for the food (because same) there’s something for everyone.
Pumpkin spice and everything nice (aka brown sugar), the Gorgeous is my personal favorite pumpkin ale. It has a unique flavor that, if you haven’t tried you must ASAP! Plus, there are loads of cute pups at NoDa Brewing so it’s obviously worth the trip.
Are you one of the few people in Charlotte who isn’t particularly fond of beer? (guilty- sorry, not sorry) Charlotte’s local cidery is one of my favorites year round, but during the fall there’s a pumpkin chai that I would probably die for. 😋
Did you really have a productive fall season without a visit to a pumpkin patch? Scenic photo op, pie tastings and corn mazes! I mean, haunted or not, there’s something about getting lost in the hay and leaves that’s so peaceful to me, but like sometimes you want to add scary clowns you know? Imagine enjoying a locally made cider on a hayride cuddled up to the person you love. Not to mention you can go home with your pumpkins and carve them over a little Hocus Pocus with those Pillsbury pumpkin cookies… you know the ones 😋.
The outdoors are even more beautiful when the snakes and spiders go into hiding 😂 Plus, this is a date that can include your fur babies, and let’s be real, those are the best dates.
Happy autumn Charlotte, I hope these actives help you FALL in love this season. 😏
