It’s almost unanimously agreed upon that fall is the best season. It brings changing leaves, sweater weather, and pumpkin spice everything. Take advantage of this festive time of year by participating in some fun-tivities unique to fall before it gets too cold.
Gather your friends and family and plan a day trip to go apple picking. Dress in your favorite sweaters and scarves for that quintessential warm outfit. Pick-your-own farms are a great place to enjoy the harvest. After searching through the leaves for the perfect red apples and finding the best pumpkins in the patch, eat apple cider donuts before heading home. Then, use your fresh fruit to make an apple pie with your grandmother’s prize-winning recipe. While it’s baking, design your pumpkins for painting or carving jack-o-lanterns for Halloween. Roasting the pumpkin seeds, seasoned your way, makes for a special fall treat.
To get into a spookier spirit, make a fun Halloween craft like cheesecloth ghosts, tell scary stories, and watch a classic movie like Hocus Pocus or Halloweentown, all while playing Monster Mash, Thriller, and Ghostbusters on repeat in the background. If you’re still thinking about what Halloween costume to wear this year, spending time to brainstorm, shop, or make your own costume would be great activities to do with friends. If you like a little fright in your night, go to a haunted house!
Fall is not complete without seeing leaves change color. Take no shame in being a leaf-peeper and find a prime hiking spot with peak views. Snap some pictures of the foliage to upload on your social media accounts, which will be sure to spur envy from those who started hibernation season early.
