Take a Stroll Along Lover’s Lane
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.
There is over 100 years of history gracing the gardens of Hills & Dales, and as you walk through the gardens you and your beloved can think back on the countless couples who have fallen deeper in love amongst the beautiful blooms of the Ferrell gardens.
Picnic Under the Ginkgos
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.
This timeless landmark was built in 1929 as a tribute to textile magnate Fuller E. Callaway. The tower is patterned after the Campanile of St. Mark’s Square in Venice, Italy and is a perfect place for a romantic fall photoshoot with your date!
Get Inspired Together
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.
