We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again, this time of year is just the coziest when it comes to romantic dates. November is here and that means that it is officially time for all the festive outings to commence! Grab your coats, scarves, and partners and get ready for a cute little day date!

Consider this your fall date itinerary!

Stop 1 : Fox in The Snow

38 W Bridge St, Dublin, OH 43017

Rise and shine love birds, let’s get you some coffee! Head over to Fox in The Snow‘s newest location in Dublin for some warm refreshments, delicious breakfast sandwiches, and perfectly flaky pastries to fuel up for the rest of the day! Pick a seat by a window for a movie-esque moment and share a few sips of each other’s drinks 😉

If you’re feeling wild, order another coffee to go!

Stop 2 : Hayden Run Falls

Get ready for a 10-15 minute walk on the boardwalk at Hayden Run Falls to a small waterfall. The best time to visit the falls is just after a good rain to make sure you’ll get to see some action! The colorful falling leaves won’t last much longer, so get out there while you still can. We’d recommend taking your time, doing some birdwatching, and enjoying the serenity of your surroundings to maximize this part of the date!

Thurber House

77 Jefferson Ave, Columbus, OH 43215

Head to the Thurber House to learn a bit about the cartoonist, James Thurber. Walk through his home, check out some of his unique art, and learn how his disability impacted his life as an artist! Part of this historic house is said to be haunted, so if that’s you and your partner’s thing – you may have a real hoot.

Stop 3 : Columbus Brewing Company and Beer Hall

200 Kelton Ave, Columbus, OH 43205

Last stop of the day! By now, you’re probably hungry again and looking to chill out for a bit. Make your way to Columbus Brewing Company and Beer Hall to kick back on their outdoor patio next to the fire pits! Play some Jenga, have a cornhole competition, and enjoy a fall beer!
