With autumn just around the corner, it's about time to start thinking about how you'll celebrate the season. Fall is the perfect time to be outdoors, as the heat is fading away and the vibrant colors start to appear. The holidays are coming up, too, which means you have a lot of festivities to look forward to.
Spending time with friends is a great way to enjoy the autumn, since there are so many fall-related activities to take part in. Plus, the warm colors and crunchy leaves are #aesthetic AF. Who better to enjoy the season with than your bestie? Here are several ideas for best friend dates to take with the gal you love this fall.
1. Take A Trip To The Pumpkin Patch
This one is a classic that never gets old. You can't argue with a trip to the pumpkin patch. You can take cute photos, pick out the perfect pumpkin, and enjoy the joyful fall feeling. It's low-key but oh-so adorable.
2. Dinner And A Fall-Themed Movie
A fun twist on a traditional date is never a bad idea. Go out to eat, or grab takeout from your fave place and settle in for a movie night. As October approaches, you can break out the Halloween movies... but who says you have to wait for October?
3. A Pumpkin Spice Latte Date
It is Pumpkin Spice Latte season, after all. Treat your bestie to a PSL and spend some time chatting and laughing as best friends do. As you enjoy each sip, savor the moment with the amazing flavors and with each other.
4. Bake An Apple Pie Together
Practice your baking skills for the upcoming holidays, and have some fun while you do it. If you're in a competitive mood, pretend you're on The Great British Bake Off and see who can make the best pumpkin pie or apple pie. Competition and time restraints can do some crazy things, but at least you'll have something yummy to look forward to in the end.
5. Watch A Football Game
Football is pretty much the king of fall sports, so grab the snacks and get comfy with your bestie. If you go to a college with a football team, being in the stadium on game day is a great way to bond with your friends and enjoy a tailgate, too. Get your school pride on and have fun.
6. Navigate A Corn Maze
It's another fall classic, but it's more adventurous than a simple trip to the pumpkin patch. Luckily, most pumpkin patches have a corn maze, too, so you can kill two birds with one stone. Bonus points if you go at night and race to the finish.
7. Take A Road Trip To See The Autumn Colors
Depending on where you live, you may have to drive a little to see the autumn colors, which can make the experience even more special. As long as you have somewhat of an idea of where you're going, little planning is even required. Just grab your camera and your bestie and get out there.
8. Decorate For Autumn
Especially if you and your bestie are roommates, decorating for the season can be a super fun task. Not only do you get to go shopping, but you get to spend time laughing together as you fix up your room to your liking. Turn on your favorite tunes, and you'll have the time of your lives.
9. Halloween Costume Shopping
Give each other a fashion show as you search for the perfect Halloween costume. For more competitive friends, have a competition to see who can find the funniest, most ridiculous costume. Loser buys Pumpkin Spice Lattes.
10. Have A Fall Photoshoot
The colorful leaves are probably the most photogenic thing after sunsets and puppies. Take advantage of the natural landscape to get some amazing Instagram photos of you and your gorgeous BFF. Your followers will thank you.
11. Have A Few Screams
With Halloween sneaking up on us, horror movies and haunted houses will be popping up on every corner. There's no better way to bond with your bestie than screaming in fear and running away hand-in-hand. A true best friend will keep you safe no matter what.
