We’re sure we’ve said it before and we’ll say it a thousand more times. There’s no season more romantic than autumn and here in Alberta, there are what feels like a million different ways to enjoy it but we’ve put together a list of our favourite. Here are 13 of the most romantic fall date ideas in Calgary!
TAKE A DRIVE THROUGH SOME FALL FOLIAGE
Come mid-September, foliage is on our minds and we may be biased here, but one of the best places in the country to see the leaves do their thing – is Jasper National Park. Check out the link above for more information about the area’s many happenings and hotspots! Ah – we just can’t wait for sweater weather!
WALK THROUGH A WHIMSICAL DISPLAY OF 6,000 PUMPKINS
Sure summer is great, but pumpkin spice lattes and Halloween parties are far better! Before we know it, spooky month will be on our front door and you’ll be looking to appease your off-beat loved one. Our advice? Take them to Pumpkins After Dark – a magical one-of-a-kind event featuring more gourds that you could bake, carve or bash in an entire lifetime. Check out this incredibly lit event starting September 23rd!
When: Thursday, September 23rd – October 31st
Where: 88 Canada Olympic Rd SW, Calgary
Time: See times above
