10 Wonderful Halloween Date Ideas That Are Hauntingly Romantic

Romance probably isn’t the first thing that comes to mind when you think about Halloween, and that’s totally fair. Most people tend to make spookier connections with the holiday, conjuring up images of scary movies or creepy Halloween decorations instead. But in our opinion, fall activities like cuddling up with your significant other to watch Hocus Pocus or strolling hand-in-hand through a pumpkin patch sounds less creepy and more charming! So why not carve out some time for a Halloween date night with your special someone? It’s an easy way to add a little (pumpkin) spice to your love life!

1. Attend Halloween Theme Night at an Amusement Park

The two of you will have a howling good time riding rides and winning prizes at an amusement park. So many offer Halloween-themed nights throughout the month of October like Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party at Disney World and Fright Fest at Six Flags. Plan a trip or look up events near you!

Stay at a Haunted Hotel

It’s not for everyone, but the seriously spooky inclined can enjoy a night together at one of the many haunted hotels across America. Along with rooms that are crawling with character, many of them will even offer extras like ghost tours.

3. Participate in a Halloween Parade

For those couples who don’t yet have any kiddos to take trick-or-treating but still want to celebrate the night in costume, consider heading out to a Halloween parade. You can look up events near you then choose your couples costume for some frightening fun.

4. Decorate for Halloween

One of the best ways to feel festive is by decorating for the holiday. And it’s even better when you do it together! Grab your partner, pull out the spooky decorations, and turn your place into a wicked wonderland.

5. Buy Matching Halloween Pajamas

Coordinating sleepwear with your significant other is a sweet way to show off your relationship. Make a date out of it by choosing matching Halloween PJs and spending the evening together. Play spooky boardgames like Clue or watch a scary movie.

6. Take a Ghost Tour

If you really want to get into the spooky spirit, go straight to the source! A ghost tour will take you to the best haunted spots in your area and is sure to be a creepily good time. It will definitely strengthen your bond, too!

7. Have a Couple Photoshoot

For memories that will last a lifetime, have a photoshoot together amid the beautiful fall foliage. Whether you book a professional photographer or do it yourself with a tripod, you’re sure to get the perfect pictures. Bonus points if you wear Halloween costumes!

8. Watch a Scary Movie at a Drive-In

There’s something so romantic about a drive-in movie on a fall weekend. Search for one near you, and look for scary movie showings around Halloween—there will likely be some great options to choose from.

9. Make Homemade Candy

You might be too old to trick-or-treat, but that doesn’t mean you can’t indulge your sweet tooth! Make these homemade Butterfingers together, and you’ll have a date activity and Halloween movie night snack all in one.

10. Go Pumpkin Picking

There are few things more “fall” than a visit to your local pumpkin patch. Snack on cider doughnuts as you wander the fields together, then take a pumpkin home to carve while you watch a scary movie.
