The upcoming Fall season is fast approaching, and everyone needs some extra fun to get into the Halloween spirit. Try any (or all) of the following three activities to start off the season on the right foot, no matter where you are. Warm yourself up with a coffee or hot chocolate, grab a camera and enlist your friends or partner to join you! And most importantly, have some fun!

Pumpkin Patch

As everyone prepares for Halloween this Fall, a great way to amp up the fun is to pick out a pumpkin in a pumpkin patch with your friends. Pumpkin patches are a fun place to pick pumpkins, make cute Fall crafts and take pictures with your friends! Look around, pick a pumpkin and make sure you snap a few shots in between. After visiting the patch, make a day of it by going home and carving a design into your selected pumpkin. Add some lights inside and set it out as a cute, new decoration to spruce up your home for the Halloween season.

Corn Maze

Visiting a corn maze with your friends is the perfect way to bond in the chilly Fall weather! Getting lost in the leaves and fields of corn is just part of the fun; corn mazes often feature the best Instagram-worthy activities. Grabbing a hot mug of apple cider and putting on your cutest Fall beanie is the best way to make your Insta-feed Fall-filled, while having an enjoyable time. Be sure to grab a map beforehand so you can lead your friends from one end of the maze to the other, hopefully without getting too lost!

Haunted House

As Halloween grows ever closer, take advantage of the chilly weather and late-night attractions! No Autumn is complete without a spooky twist, and what better way to brave your fears than to soldier through a haunted house? Call up your friends or partner– or venture in alone if you dare. From bloodthirsty vampires and vengeful ghouls to ancient mummies and ravenous zombies, these iconic attraction monsters are sure to keep the adrenaline rushing (and earn you some bragging rights once you’re out)!

These suggestions are just a few ways you can experience the season to the fullest. Going out, trying new, spooky activities and bonding with your loved ones is the perfect recipe for making this autumn the best one yet. If this list isn’t fulfilling your Autumn must-dos, simply turn on “Hocus Pocus” or another Fall-themed film for a cozy night indoors. Either way, take this time to indulge in your favorite activities, you’ve earned it!
