Fall Fun for Couples in Southwest Virginia
“Fall” in LOVE in Southwest Virginia
Fall in Southwest Virginia is a very special time of year. It’s a time when the landscape begins to change and take a rest until Spring. The air begins to cool and the leaves begin to turn beautiful shades of red, yellow, and orange. Fall is also a great time to enjoy fun activities with your significant other. Here’s a list of fun Fall things for couples in Southwest Virginia.
Visit a Pumpkin Patch
If you have never visited a pumpkin patch to choose the perfect pumpkin, we promise you’ll love it. Not only do you help support local farmers and businesses, but also you get a whole experience. Take a drive out to a pumpkin patch near you and pick out your favorite!
Go on a Hayride
Often times when visiting a pumpkin patch you’ll find other things to do such as hay-rides. For thrill-seekers, there are often “haunted” themed hay-rides which can add to the excitement. Either way, you’ll be able to get a nice view of the land while enjoying a laid back ride with your significant other.
Visit a Corn Maze
Corn mazes are a fun way to get lost and enjoy a good challenge. Take on one with your significant other, or have a friendly competition to see who can get out first! Many pumpkin patches offer great corn mazes. Some maze creators also take great pride in crafting unique and individual mazes. Some of these mazes seen from above can look like people, animals, places, or even spell out names. It’s truly a sight to see!
