Best dates for when the weather gets chilly

The weather outside might be frightful, but that doesn't mean you can't have a delightful date with your significant other. What are the best date ideas for cold weather? This list ranks hot date ideas for when the cold weather hits. So what makes a good date for cold temperatures?

Just because it's chilly outside, doesn't mean that you have to spend the day indoors. There are plenty of great outdoor date ideas for cold weather. If it's autumn, why not play in the leaves together? Fall is also a great time to play a rousing game of pick up football. With the pretty leaves and brisk weather, bundling up and taking a walk together is also a nice way to get out of the house even when it's cold outside.

But when it gets chilly outside, there really is nothing better than staying in and snuggling with your special someone. Have a wine and cheese night, or watch scary movies together. When it's cold outside, make a big batch of soup to enjoy together. The kitchen will surely get steamy!

Cast your votes below for the best cold weather dates, whether you're indoors or outdoors.
