If you’re looking for fun adventures to do with your boyfriend, you’ve come to the right place!
These romantic date night ideas and playful afternoon outings are an ideal way to tap into your spontaneous side and enjoy quality time together. And they come with perfect timing, too. Because not only do they boast fun stuff to do as a couple during the “in-between” season of late summer and early fall… But most are also easy-peasy to enjoy at almost any time of the year!
Don’t believe it? Just have a look for yourself. These suggestions range from rare to outrageous, silly to sweet, and heartfelt to heart-pounding. Best of all? You’ll ditch the “traditional” date nights that trap you into a routine. So add some spice to your love life, and let the adventures with your boyfriend begin!
1. Apple Picking
Skip the produce aisle of the grocery store and go for fresh-off-the-tree fruits! Climbing trees and taking a few Instagram-worthy snapshots will only add to the memories this romantic outdoor adventure will bring. (Not to mention the chance to bust out your plaid shirt and boots at long last!)
2. Fire Pit Date Night
Who says a date night means having to go somewhere? Fun things to do with your boyfriend at home can be as simple as heading to the backyard. Grab some marshmallows, choice beverages and blankets—then snuggle up for a relaxing evening by the fire pit.
3. Go Off the Grid
Did #2 above make you hungry for more of the same but in even wilder scenery? Go beyond the backyard for a fun adventure to do with your boyfriend, compliments of Mother Nature. Go camping for a day or two! And take the scenic route to your destination, so you can scope out the changing leaf colors.
4. Craft and Cocktail Night
This is a romantic date idea that involves much more than the standard “wine and paint night.” Plenty of options are now popping up all over major city areas, boasting such awesome artistic endeavors as glass fusing, woodworking, jewelry, ceramics, and DIY projects galore. And, of course, a little bit of booze to help the creative juices flow.
5. Explore a New City
You know that city you’ve heard of or always see signs/billboards for? Stop wondering about the hype—hop into the car and go visit it for yourselves! Not only will an impromptu trip like this be fun with your main squeeze, but it’s also one of those fun adventures to do with friends, too.
Perhaps one of the most meaningful and fun adventures to do with your boyfriend is to pay it forward. Find a cause that piques the interest of both of you. Do some good for the community and plant some seeds of kindness together.
7. Seasonal Cycling and Sips
‘Tis the season for new craft beer releases of the cozy, autumn variety! So bike around your downtown area to savor pints of seasonal pumpkin ales at local breweries. The fresh fall air, gentle sunshine, and delicious hops all make for a perfect afternoon out together!
This fun thing to do with your boyfriend outside probably needs no further explanation. What could be more invigorating and bring more smiles, happy yelps, and memories than harnessing up to a cable and soaring among vibrant fall colors?! That’s a pretty sweet mission accomplished.
9. Football Tailgating
Whether it’s an alma mater or a professional team to which one (or both) of you has devoted unwavering loyalty, this is a winning way to kickoff fall fun together. Don some spirited threads, round up the crew, and embrace all the festivities that come with tailgating!
10. Scary Movie Screening
For some, this is the ideal romantic date night idea. Cuddle up to some good company, as a frightful flick does its best to give you the shivers. Brace enough to make it extra-creepy? Head to a remote field or into the dark cover of the woods, and watch it in the car on a laptop.
11. Take a Rock Climbing Class
This fun adventure to do with your boyfriend is an incredible way to try a new hobby and immerse yourselves in the great outdoors!

Shake up your daily regime with splashes of science, culture, history, art and more! You’ll be supporting your community while expanding your own horizons. And you’ll be doing it as a dynamic duo! So even if these sorts of outings aren’t your “norm,” just remember that variety is the spice of life.

Ease into the spooky season by checking out a guided outing of how your city’s history has morphed into local hauntings.

18. Cook Fancier-Than-Usual Eats
Most days, it’s easy to go for cereal, microwaveable grub, or forking over the cash to dine out. Why not switch things up for fine dining at home.

In these days of Netflix and OnDemand TV, it’s sometimes rare to go to an actual cinema anymore. (What happened to the date nights where that was the thing to do on the weekend with your boyfriend?!) So splurge a little! See a flick on the BIG screen, complete with popcorn, soda and candy.
51. DIY Driveway Oil Change
Get your hands dirty and save some cash! If it’s time to show your car some routine TLC, this is a unique way to solve the “what to do with your boyfriend on a date” dilemma. Ditch dinner and movie for oil and grease. And learn a pretty helpful how-to skill, too!
52. Bob for Apples
You know what they say. Don’t knock it ‘til you try it. So if you haven’t yet tried this “it” game that’s featured in movies and parties galore, give it a go! It doesn’t have to be in public—it can be goofy entertainment in the comfort of your own home.
53. Football Tailgating
Fall means football, whether you want it to or not. If he likes the sport and you like the spirit, or vice versa, live the best of both worlds together. Don your most festive threads and team colors, and crack open some cold ones in the parking lot for a fun afternoon date idea with your boyfriend.
54. Go Skydiving
It may sound cliché, but if this hasn’t been scratched off both of your bucket lists just yet, then it’s time to prepare for take-off. An outdoor adventure with your boyfriend like this is one for the books. Already taken the outside plunge? Then try indoor skydiving for a new twist on an old favorite!
55. Watch a Classic Film Neither of You Have Seen
This likely needs no further explanation. And you’ll get extra “Power Couple” bonus points if you physically rent it as a DVD from somewhere, instead of simply buying a download. (Eek, are DVDs really that ‘vintage’ already?!)
56. Advanced Christmas Gift Shopping
Believe it or not, the time for decking the halls is nearly upon us! So spare yourselves the November-December crowds at the malls. Start shopping and stashing away now. Then you’ll have more time to enjoy fun, festive activities and holiday date ideas together later.
57. Make Caramel Apples
Simply put, this fall favorite is another must-do! It proves that you can find cute, creative things to do on the weekend with your boyfriend that he's game for, especially when it involves food. Making these ooey-gooey gems will be just as fun as eating them!
58. Too-Colorful Twister
So far we’ve talked about fall colors. And we’ve talked about gettin’ dirty. Let’s combine those two! Add a few splashes of finger paint to corresponding Twister dots. Don some old clothes, then you know what to do. Spin, stretch, repeat!
59. Donate Some BRAND NEW Items to Charity
Those who are less well off than others are people, too. Who desire and deserve to live with a certain amount of dignity—even if it’s not always the most viable option for them. So lend humanity a hand. Buy a few new clothing items and take them straight to a donation center. Who knows, it could help someone who desperately needs interview attire to land that job and turn their circumstances around.
60. Plan a “Good” Event to Do
On the note of helping others, as well as Christmas coming, why not use an hour or two to brainstorm a charitable activity you both can spearhead? Plan a toy, canned food, hygiene or clothing drive. And woah—selfless things to do on the weekend with your boyfriend like this will make him look extra-hot, from the inside out.
61. Learn a Funny Human Trick
One of the best things about being in a couple is that you know each other’s ‘freak flags’ and can help to proudly fly them. Ahh, true love. Take that lovin’ to the next level by learning a quirky new talent together—juggling, tongue-tied cherry stems, licking elbows, you get the idea.
62. Plan a Garden
From staking out space to make it, to planning what to grow, or even planting bulbs, this is a wonderful fall activity to do with your S.O. In addition, it will give you something to look forward to for spring and summer. And, it's an especially nice project if you prefer more productive types of date ideas.
63. Random Discount-Site Outing
Nothing can help you figure out last-minute things to do on the weekend with your boyfriend better than scrolling through online activity deals! Head over to your favorite app or website, and discover endless possibilities that will keep you entertained and making fun memories.
64. Decorate for Halloween
Bust out some spook-tacular décor to get your place ready for a frightfully fun season! Disclaimer: this may or may not mean an impromptu trip to a favorite certain home goods store is necessary—which makes it a great weekend outing already. #winning!
65. Design a Centerpiece
Wondering what to do with your boyfriend on a Friday night? Why, take a romantic stroll that lets your love for Pinterest shine, of course! Collect authentic seasonal items as you amble along. Then arrange them in a bowl or vase, creating a beautiful fall display: stones, colorful leaves, pine cones, and maybe a few small store-bought enhancers (like cinnamon sticks) if needed.
66. Plan A Couple-Themed Halloween Costume
The sooner you do this, the better. Because one, the Halloween stores won’t be overly crowded or picked over. And two, you can take your time carefully putting together any details that really tie your look together to wow the masses.
67. Eat Pumpkin-Everything
It may not be the most traditional of date ideas, but that’s what makes it desirable. Consider it a fall food challenge. Whether this means pumpkin-flavored foods, or anything that looks like a pumpkin—try to make it your diet for the day, just for kicks. We’re talking pumpkin bread, soup, roasted seeds, beers, cookies, etc. But do your body a favor: don’t go more than 24 hours with this festive fun.
68. Take a Hot Air Balloon Ride
Hands down, this is absolutely one of the most romantic things to do on the weekend with your boyfriend, ever. Marvel at the awe-inspiring mosaic of fall colors from high over head, instead of crunching them under foot.
69. Rake Leaves for Someone
Enjoy a beautiful autumn afternoon with your beloved, while lending a helping hand. Whether it’s an elderly neighbor, a busy parent, a coworker with a bad back, or anyone with a yard you’d like to spruce up!
70. Go to a Theme Party
Stuck in a Halloween costume idea rut? Find some inspiration at a local theme party! Nearly every major area hosts at least ONE somewhere in the city limits each weekend—at a bar, fundraiser, social league/club, etc. It’s not just the perfect way to ‘pre-game’ for the 31st, but it’s also a fun thing to do with your boyfriend on a Friday night.
71. Learn a New Way to Move ‘n’ Groove
Unleash your inner rhythm with a one-off dance lesson. Try a few new steps together with something casual like line dancing, catchy like salsa, classy like ballroom, or anything in-between that gets your feet movin’ to a hot beat.
72. DIY Ice Cream Sundae Bar
Spend a Friday or Saturday with a cute date night idea that satisfies a sweet tooth. A pint or two of vanilla ice cream, an endless supply of tasty toppings, and as much whipped cream as you both can handle should do the trick.
73. Themed Ethnic Eats
For an extra-fun thing to do on the weekend with your boyfriend at home, don’t just make any ol’ dinner together. Plan culturally-inspired cuisine from apps, to main course, dessert, and maybe even drinks! Whether it’s something you’ve made before or an entirely new foreign feast, go all out.
74. Make Your Own Hot Apple Cider
Add a bit of spice and maybe even some “spike” to a vat of warm deliciousness. The mere aroma will make your house smell oh-so-cozy! Then grab some popcorn or donut holes, pop in a favorite fall flick, and snuggle up under a blanket together.
75. Paint Pumpkins
Carving is so last year. Well, not really—it’s pretty timeless. But painting your Halloween pumpkins this year will help to ensure they live long and prosper as well, with innards fully intact. Put a new spin on a wine ‘n’ paint night, and give a cute gourd a gorgeous (or ghoulish) new look.
76. Stay in a B&B
Sometimes the best things to do on the weekend with your boyfriend mean doing nothing at all. For a nice, low-maintenance getaway that can’t be beat, head to a bed-and-breakfast for some quality rest and relaxation.
77. Make Apple Pie Infused Bourbon
With the wealth of information available on the internet, it’s easy to find a recipe for this that will win you over. Once crafted, enjoy some quiet time sipping on the porch or around your fire pit. Bonus points if one of you has a guitar to strum as well.
