The most beautiful of days are when the seasons are changing and you are enjoying the beauty of nature with the one you love! "Chateau Avalon's Great Dates of Fall" are here and ready to inspire you! Even though Fall is coming to a close, there is still plenty of time to get a few dates in!Fall Blog Image

Ride in a Hot Air Balloon - Hot air balloon rides are quite possibly one of the most beautiful, romantic and unique date ideas out there! Whether you are looking to celebrate a special occassion, celebrate a special person, or even pop the question, a hot air balloon ride is definitely something to consider. Click here for more information on balloon rides in KC!
 Have a Coffee Date (Chai or Pumpkin Lattes are delicious this time of year!) - While there are many fantastic coffee shops in Kansas City, may we suggest one of our favorites? Venture into downtown and check out The Filling Station -- Kansas City's only coffee garage. With a fantastic menu, talented staff and a unique space, a visit to The Filling Station will leave you glad you tried something different.
Wander a Corn Maze - Travel just outside of Kansas City to visit the Liberty Corn Maze, the largest corn maze in the state of Missouri. Enjoy a date night with the one you love or bring the kids for some family fun!
Bundle Up For a Picnic - Pull out the picnic basket, a glass of wine and a picnic blanket. If you're looking for the perfect picnic spot, check out Loose Park or find a nice tree to cozy up to at the Overland Park Arboretum & Botanical Gardens!
Tour a Haunted House - If you like to get SCARED, click here for the best haunted options in Kansas City!
Go to a Pumpkin Patch - Take a day trip to Weston, MO and visit the Weston Red Barn Farm. With hayrides, a country store, sweet treats and much more, you are certain to enjoy your time! While you're in Weston, make sure to plan a visit to the downtown area -- there are lots of great little shops and restaurants to check out while you're there!
Bake Pies & Other Autumn Treats - Pick up fresh apples at the local Farmer's Market and cozy up at home and bake the day away! There's nothing more romantic than sharing the kitchen with the one you love!
Take a Walk through the Leaves - Keep it casual with a simple walk around the neighborhood or enjoy a hike on the trails at Shawnee Mission Park or other great places throughout the city!

Whatever you do to enjoy the season, make sure you always spend time with the ones you love the most! Happy Autumn!
