10 Inexpensive Fall Activities for Couples

Getting outside to enjoy the beautiful season of fall doesn’t have to be expensive, actually, there are many things you can do for free. Exercising, getting together with friends and just enjoying life outdoors can lift your spirits and improve your health. Try one of these ten ideas for inexpensive fall activities for couples.

*Scenic Drive

Pack a lunch and head out for the country. Once you’re away from the hustle and bustle of city life, you’ll find yourself relaxing and starting to notice the beautiful changing colors of the landscape. Stop and visit an old cemetery, eat your lunch by a lake and notice the last blooms of summer too.


Moving under your own power is absolutely free! Use a map to find spots you would like to explore near your home and head out early to walk, jog or run your way on an adventure. Set your own pace depending on your level of physical fitness. You can take a lunch or plan to stop along the way but either way be sure to carry enough water and some high-energy sports bars and maybe some trail mix.

*Do Some Crafting For Gifts Or Decorating

Gather old vines and weave them into wreaths to use at Christmas. Many vines will work but the best are grape and wild muscadine. You can also gather pinecones to decorate with, either plain or spray painted. Gather dried moss for crafting, as well as nuts and dried seedpods. All of these materials are costly in craft stores so, not only do you get to enjoy a fall day outside but also you save money doing it.

 *Romantic Outdoor Dinner

Light candles around the yard and string Christmas lights in trees to create a fairyland scene. Drape the table with vintage tablecloths or fabric; lace is always nice, and bring out your best china and stemware. Play soft mood music and enjoy an inexpensive dinner dressed up with herbs. A $60 steak dinner at a nice restaurant will cost under $20 at home.

*Create A Garden

Now that it’s cooler outside it’s a good time to start that landscaping you have long dreamed about. No, you may not have the money now to add all the extras you wish for but you can get started with the layout and planning. It costs nothing to dig up a flower bed and get it ready for spring planting and concrete is inexpensive, so you can create stepping-stones or maybe pour a sidewalk. The important thing is that you are together working on your dream for tomorrow.

*Go For A Hike

Hiking trails in state and national parks are free to hike. Start early and hike at a leisurely pace that allows you time to chat and take in the beauty of the changing foliage. Take breaks often and drink plenty of water. Halfway of your hike, spread out your packed lunch and enjoy it in the great outdoors.

*Go To The Beach

Now that summer is over the beaches won’t be so crowded and you can spend the day basking in the sun and taking walks in the sand. Explore tide pools and watch the aquatic life they hold, gather driftwood and build a fire to roast wieners. Gather seashells, build a sand castle, watch the waves lapping at the shore and the antics of seabirds as they soar above you.

*Visit A Museum

Visit a local museum or find one in a town near you. It doesn’t have to bore at all. Museums are a scrapbook of the past and there’s always plenty to see and learn. You can even find one about something you both are interested in such as space exploration, the Civil War, Dinosaurs, arts and crafts of the area, even oddball museums such as Ripley’s Believe It Or Not.

*Go To An Arts And Crafts Fair

Entrance fees are usually low and looking is free, at most arts and crafts fairs. Enjoy the delightfully delicious foods, watch artisans blow glass, make horseshoes, carve wood, paint portraits and weave baskets. Enjoy the live music and be sure to stay for the dancing and the fireworks in the evening.

*Go Biking

Biking is a fast growing sport because it is relatively inexpensive, good exercise and allows you to choose your own pace. Most parks have bike trails or you can set out on your own and with a map and chart your own course. You’ll be together, exercising and enjoying the marvelous fall foliage. Pack a lunch to take with you or stop at a diner and eat an inexpensive meal. If you own your bikes this activity is not inexpensive but totally free!

The list of inexpensive fall activities for couples is almost endless. Eating is usually the big cost of most outings but by packing your own lunch, you can do many things for free. Remember to look for the best bushcraft knives for the money for your safety. Just find something you both like to do and then head out in the great outdoors.
