Has it only been one month since school started? It feels like many, and our schedules are only filling up more. Speaking of months, when was the last time you had a date night with your significant other? I’m not sure either, to be honest. If you’re like me, you need a date night desperately, but when the night comes you’re not sure if you even have the energy. Sprinkle some dry shampoo in your hair, slap on some lipstick and make yourself go out. You will be glad you did! Here are some easy but fun ideas for fall date nights in New Orleans.

Seven Fall Date Nights In New Orleans

Have a Picnic

I know what you’re thinking: easier said than done. I’m talking about a slacker picnic, which this city makes oh-so-easy. Get yourself some poboys and your favorite beverage and head somewhere scenic. I like the Moonwalk, the Fly or somewhere along the Lake. Leave your phones in the car (or at least on silent) and enjoy the people watching, the food and of course, the company.

Go to a Haunted House

Like to be scared? It will bring you two closer; do I need to say more? You’ll probably share a good laugh as well…once your nerves calm down.

Dinner With a View

Enjoy the city from a different view and head to a rooftop venue. There are some new spots in the CBD that are perfect for enjoying the fall weather and a night out.

Cheer on the Home Team

Game on. Professional sports games are great, but they tend to be a day-long event. There are plenty of date night options among semi-pro, college and high school teams in town. Why not cheer on your alma mater on a Friday night?

Take a Self-Guided French Quarter Tour

Wander around the French Quarter and see where it takes you. It’s fun to browse the art galleries, grab a drink to go, and peek into hidden courtyards as you pass them. Among the museum, antiques and music, there is plenty to see and hear.

Listen to Music

Go to a concert, there are lots of free concerts happening around down. Check out this free fall fun list for more ideas.

Eat and Be a Kid Again at a Fall Festival

Go to a fall festival! It is fall festival season after all and there are some awesome festivals going on around town where you can listen to music, eat, and act like a kid again riding all the rides.
