Falling in love: Date ideas for you and your boo

Looking for ideas for fall themed dates? The Bells has you covered. Check out the following for some great ideas sure to make your girlfriend or boyfriend swoon.

Pumpkin Patch:
Fall is the perfect season for a romantic date to a pumpkin patch. You can go on a haunted hayride, take pictures among the pumpkins and even buy a pumpkin or two. Pumpkin patches at family farms can be so much fun on a crisp fall day. You could take your pumpkins back to campus to decorate or carve them. You can even make a competition out of it and have your friends vote on their favorite design. While decorating your pumpkins, treat yourself to some homemade caramel apples that are sticky sweet or apple cider that is sure to get you into the season.

Haunted House:
Spooky couples will love this idea. There are a ton of haunted houses in the area begging for couples who want a fright to come by. This option is a little more on the pricey side. However, it is a memory you will cherish forever and never forget. Just make sure your partner is down for a night of frights before you take them.

A Picnic Date:
Picnics are always a great date idea. After all, what’s better than a date involving food? A perfect place to have a picnic would be at Burt Pond, a great date spot that is conveniently located on campus. Grab a blanket and some sandwiches from SubConnection or pick up Italian food to go and enjoy a relaxing meal by the pond. Bonus: You could even stay out to watch the sunset.

Scary Movie Marathon:
Meet up for a scary movie marathon and watch all the classics. Townsend Memorial Library and Redbox have lots of good movies to rent and watch. Make some popcorn and enjoy a good scare together. Not a scary movie person? You can always watch good Halloween movies from your childhood, like “Halloweentown”, “Twitches” and “Hocus Pocus”.

Go Coffee Shop Hopping:
There are so many coffee shops in the Belton area, all of which feature delicious seasonal drinks and treats. Go on a romantic journey from one coffee shop to another. Visit one shop per day for a week, or go to as many different shops as possible in one day. What better way to spend time together than by sharing a cup of joe? Find a free souvenir, a napkin or a stir stick, so you can take from each place a memento to cherish your coffee shop hopping date experience forever.
