See also

Hello Fall!! I love fall in Atlanta, the cooler temps, colorful leaves and crisp mornings make getting outside more fun and less hot & sweaty. It's the perfect season for exercising outside with your honey. I've pulled together a great list of "Fall Dates" that my husband and I love to do every year. They are guaranteed to create a little heat between you two.

Atlanta Fall Dates:

Climb a rock: Fall is the ideal season for outdoor rock climbing. Rock climbing is a partner sport, it requires trust and great communication so you climb successfully, it's the perfect fall activity to do with your honey. However, if neither of you have ever done it before, be sure to check out a beginner class nearby. Try www.atlantarocks.com for a class.

Harvest festival date: Pick a day to go apple and/or pumpkin picking. Take a long walk through an orchard to gain some quality time with your sweetie. Meanwhile, pick fresh apples or pumpkins to bring home for healthy, homemade snacks and desserts and skip the fried fare.

Join a chairty walk or run: There are so many fall road races to pick from, you are sure to find one that suits both of your levels of fitness. Check out the fall schedule at www.rungeorgia.com. Organized events are fun spirited and motivating, plus you're giving to a worthy cause. What more could bring you closer?

Hit the trails: Leave the concrete behind and spend some time with nature! Head to the mountains for a day or two of hiking. Go explore nearby waterfalls, caves and local parks. Breath fresh air and enjoy long walks while watching the fall foilage. The two of you are sure to share some pretty awe-inspiring sights together.

Biking for two: The cooler temps are perfect for biking together. Whether riding your own bike or a bike built for two, make the most of fall by riding together. You can make it a leisurely cruise along The Silver Comet Trail or head to the mountains for some wooded trails, either way, you're bound to spend a great day together. Check out www.silvercometga.com for maps and bike rentals along The Silver Comet Trail.

Be sure to add some of these fun, fitness inspired dates to your existing exercise routine and you'll make the most out of the great fall Atlanta weather and have a blast with your special someone!!
