As the weather starts to get a little colder and the leaves start changing colors, grab the one you love and enjoy the romance of fall in LaGrange. Here are our ideas of the most charming spots around town to impress your favorite date.
Hills & Dales Estate is romantic in any season. You’re probably aware of the majesty of spring at the estate, but there’s something truly magical about seeing the gardens in fall. Take a romantic stroll along Lover’s Lane, a narrow walkway framed by large boxwoods and statues of Aratus and Sophocles. Way back when, it’s rumored to have been the meeting spot of “courting” couples.
Callaway Memorial Tower is one of LaGrange’s best-kept secrets. Impress your date by packing a picnic and sitting together under the golden leaves of ginkgo trees. Throw in a bottle of locally-made wine from Nutwood Winery or grab coffee and pastries from Sweet Roast and spend some quality time together enjoying the autumn weather.
For the fall days when the weather is a little too chilly to enjoy being outside, spend the day perusing collections at the LaGrange Art Museum and Cochran Gallery. Both spaces have regularly rotating exhibitions. Enjoy different genres of work and the talent of local artists while spending quality time with the one you love.
Have a romantic meal for two in town. Whether you are more of a casual couple looking to share a slice of pizza at Pizza Villa or a cold beer from Beacon Brewing Co., or want to get dressed up for something on the nicer side like a leisurely meal at Mare Sol or a beautiful view at Nutwood Winery, LaGrange has the romantic dining options you are looking for. And the best part? No one has to fight over who will do the dishes when the meal is over.
