For the nature lover: Dallas Arboretum

Named one of "America's Best Pumpkin Festivals" with over 90,000 pumpkins and gorgeous fall colors at every turn, Autumn at the Arboretum at the Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden creates a magical backdrop for daytime dates. If you have to bring the kids along, take them to the Rory Meyers Children's Adventure Garden for an outdoor adventure. Autumn at the Arboretum ends on Nov. 22, so plan your visit before it's gone.

For an artsy night: Late Night in the Arts District

Explore the Dallas Arts District after dark for a romantic evening. Enjoy a free after hours exhibit at the Dallas Museum of Art as they showcase their staff's artwork, ranging from photography to cross-stich and more. Visit Savor at Klyde Warren Park on a Friday or Saturday night for its nightlife live music series. Or you can plan to attend a show at the AT&T Performing Arts Center.

For a Texas twist: Square dancing lessons at The Round Up Saloon 

Scoot your boots at the Round Up Saloon & Dance Hall. Grab your partner and get down with the Saloon's free nightly dance lessons, karaoke and 50 cent draft beers!
