Bored in the city? Switch up your day-to-day routine by throwing a little adventure in the mix! View The VIBE’s Aly Zorn rounds up the best fall activities for couples in Toronto.
Fall in the 6ix is undoubtedly a romantic time – the rustic colors seem to scream passion and the cooling temperature mean there’s more opportunity to cozy up with your S.O. But before you snuggle up on the couch for some Netflix, why not try something different? We’ve compiled a little list of cute date ideas for you and bae that will propel your #couplegoals off the charts. Check out 10 couples activities to do this fall.
Laugh it Out
Second city comedy show
It goes in saying that one of the most sought-after qualities in a relationship is being able to laugh together. Head out to a Second City show (see the schedule here) and get ready to laugh your a** off. Even when the show’s over, you’ll probably be quoting one-liners that will have you and your partner laughing well into the night. General admission is usually around $15.
Relax, Relax and Relax
There’s nothing like a little R&R to get you and bae in the mood. The Scandinave Spa at Blue Mountain in Collingwood is the perfect day trip or weekend getaway where you can simply appreciate being in each other’s presence. Unwind at the hot/cold pools and the eucalyptus steam room or treat yourselves to a couples massage. See getaway packages here.
Have a Weekend Away
Sometimes the best way to amp up the romance is to just get away! If you’re looking to spend a weekend together, yet still enjoy the comforts of the city, the Drake Devonshire is the perfect destination. With a picturesque view of a lake and a few neighboring wineries, it’s bound to be a memorable trip. Or if the Drake Devonshire is all booked up, try a private yurt experience on a lake.
Have a Smashing Good Time
Go to the Rage Room and F*ck Things Up
If you’re the type of couple that likes things rough, then go have a smashing good time at the Rage Room. Get suited up and break the sh*t out of bought items and even items you don’t need at home anymore – it’s also the perfect excuse to get your partner tidy up the house, too!
Boudoir Photography Couples Session
Life can get stressful and sometimes it’s easy to fall into a lackluster routine. Reignite your connection and get steamy during an artistic Couples Photography Session at the Boudoir Corner. Keep it fun and flirty or make things really sexy – it’s up to you! But one thing’s for sure, we can guarantee you won’t be able to keep your hands off each other after the shoot.

Go All Out for Fall
Take a Pumpkin Picking Day Trip
Nothing says fall quite like a pumpkin! Get in touch with your inner kid and go pumpkin picking with your S.O. Cozy up for a hayride and share a farm-fresh bite, then carve the pumpkin together. See a list of pumpkin patches in the GTA here.
Get Your Nature On
Fall hiking around Toronto
All the technology these days can distract us from what’s really important. Why not unplug and go immerse yourselves in nature. There are some great trails in Toronto, as well as the surrounding area like the Bruce Trail and Rattlesnake Point, where you and your S.O. can have a peaceful time, plus a mid-hike picnic is super romantic.
Dance Your Way to Love
Salsa classes at Lula lounge
Salsa your way into each other’s hearts during a dance class at Lula Lounge. Weekly salsa classes for beginners are held every Friday at 9:30pm and Saturday at 9pm. Even if you have no rhythm, the night will turn into something you can laugh at and promise to never try in public again. So swing those hips, lock eyes and dance the night away. $15 cover includes the lesson. See the schedule here.
Get a Little Tipsy
Forty Creek Distillery Tour
Even if you’re not a whiskey drinker, a tour at Forty Creek Distillery in Grimsby, Ontario is the perfect outing to get a little tipsy, because why the hell not?! Loosen up while you have a new experience together and maybe get “lost” amongst all the barrels in the aging room… whiskey kisses are super cute. Get tour details here.
Find the Perfect Pairing
Go on a wine tour
Since you and bae make a perfect pair, why not go on a wine tour and discover a delicious wine pairing. Wine Tours Toronto is currently running an Autumn tour, Celebrate the Harvest, with a number of scheduled dates throughout October and November as well as their Toronto Urban Tour and Niagara’s Finest Wine Tour. Prices start at $96.50.
Make it Sizzle
Dish Cooking Studio
Many men (and women!!!) would say the way to their heart is through their stomach. But rather than cooking a meal at home, why not spice things up a little and try cooking something exotic. Dish Cooking Studio has two “date night”classes on October 21st and 28th: Moroccan Magic and Meet me at Izakaya – the burner’s won’t be the only thing sizzling. Each class costs $125.
