Fall is right around the corner, which means it's time to get cozy with the one you love, or just like more than other people. You could go on those cliche dates: apple picking, pumpkin picking, and hayrides. On the other hand you can march to the beat of your own drum and do something a little off the wall.

Break out those flannel shirts and spend the fall season going on these different dates.
