Not only is Fall beautiful in Buffalo Niagara, but there are so many great options for you and your significant other to choose from for a great time out
The temperatures are dropping and the leaves don’t have to be the only thing falling this Fall! You’ll be falling in love in no time with these cute date ideas in the Buffalo Niagara region.
Spring Lake Winery
Spring Lake Winery is our favorite winery in WNY. Its peaceful location right on the water will transcend you and your love into a tranquil state of mind. Take in the colors of Fall while you sip on your favorite wine and appreciate the company of your love. Or go with a group of gal pals and feel fine with a little wine. Stay for lunch at their quaint cafe and breathe in the crisp Fall air. Looking for some spooky fun? Grab your bros or your boo and check out Spring Lake Winery’s Hallo-Wine Boos BASH on October 19th. There are few spots better for great date ideas.
Pastry By Camille
They say Paris is for lovers. And while that is definitely true on Thursday October 17th, Buffalo will be for lovers, too. That’s because Camille of Pastry by Camille (aka Frenchie) will be hosting an amazing 5-Course Tasting Menu with wines and teas. So feel the Buffalove in the original City of Lights and indulge in a decadent evening of French cuisine that you won’t soon forget. Don’t procrastinate on getting tickets to this one-of-a-kind event because they will undoubtedly sell out fast!
The Great Pumpkin Farm
This family-friendly Fall oasis in Clarence, NY is the perfect spot for a Fall adventure. Not only is it a great place to go if you have kiddos but it’s also a fun place to go on a cute date sans-kids as well. The Great Pumpkin Farm has amazing lunch options, a full bar for the grown-ups, candy galore, baked goods, and an endless supply of festive Halloween and Fall decorations. Don’t forget to feed the adorable donkeys and goats! After you visit the corn maze and take a cruise on the hayride, pick out your pumpkins and have a little friendly competition at home to see who can carve the best masterpiece! Check out all the amazing events happening at The Great Pumpkin Farm all season long.
Look no further for a great date night than Spring Lake Winery, Pastry by Camille (Frenchie pictured), and The Great Pumpkin Farm
Aquarium of Niagara
They say, “There are plenty of fish in the sea,” but sadly there are now less than ever. Which is why it’s so great that The Aquarium of Niagara is hosting “Oceanda: The Taste of Sustainability,” on November 14th. “Oceanda” will feature environmentally friendly dishes prepared by favorite local chefs. All proceeds will go directly back to the care of their animals, including more than 120 species, many of which were rescued by the Aquarium of Niagara and deemed non-releasable. Couples who participate in charitable acts are 78% more likely to stay together so do something good for our community and our planet and get your tickets to this amazing event!
One of our favorite Fall activities is apple picking and one of our favorite spots to do just that is LynOaken Farms. You already picked the perfect partner, so now it’s time to pick some perfect apples too. Check out their U-Pick schedule and don’t forget to tag us in your pics from the Orchard!
Niagara Falls State Park
If you’re looking for some free fun this Fall, check out the changing Fall foliage at Niagara Falls State Park. There’s just something special about seeing the wonder of the Falls with the changing leaves as a backdrop. The Falls in the Fall is truly breathtaking and Niagara Falls State Park perfect setting for a romantic day or evening date. Go on a weekend and pack a picnic with a thermos of warm apple cider. Doesn’t that sound nice?! Sometimes it’s great to simplify things and being surrounded by the wonder and beauty of nature has a profound way of sparking the romance.
While we love outside adventures, sometimes it’s just nice to sit back, relax, and enjoy a little indoor fun as well. At Salvatore’s Hospitality, the possibilities for a romantic experience are endless. Enjoy a lovely Staycation at the Delavan Hotel. With countless romantic packages to choose from, you’re sure to have a dreamy evening for two. Or enjoy a delicious meal at Italian Prime where their Dinner For Two option allows for an incredible dining experience with a 3-course-meal. Sometimes a getaway with your love is all you need to spark the romance and Salvatore’s Hospitality is a great place to do just that!
