Fun Things To Do In The Fall Time

Fun Things to Do In Fall

The leaves are changing, and the cooler weather has officially arrived.  As the kids start to get settled into their new classrooms and TV commercials gradually start to take on the tone of the upcoming holiday season, make sure you take advantage of some of the fun activities that are perfect for this time of year. Here are a few simple suggestions:

  • Visit a Pumpkin Patch. Autumn is the time when all things orange start becoming perfect for picking. Visiting a pumpkin patch can be fun all by itself, but with the fruits of your labor, you can make many more memories when you get home.  Show your creativity by carving crazy faces or stay on the safer side by painting interesting designs on your freshly-picked pumpkins. Don't throw the seeds away. You can roast them, and make a snack that's easy to take with you wherever you go.

  • Pick Apples. This fall-time fruit is ripe and ready this time of year. Sure, you could make some good old American apple pie, but there are dozens of other interesting things that you can do with this fruit, too. Need a little direction? Check out for plenty of easy-to-do ideas like apple cider, scary apple mouths, and homemade apple sauce.

  • Tailgate. You don't have to head to a stadium parking lot to have a great time. Pick a Saturday or Sunday, and invite the neighbors to bring a potluck dish. This is a fantastic way to get to know the folks in your community, while you take in these precious sunny days.

  • Take to the Hills. As the trees start to turn vibrant colors of orange, red, and yellow, take advantage of a car ride, hike, or biking adventure so that you can be right in the middle of this seasonal spectacle.

  • Find a Bonfire.  If you can build a fire at your home, have some friends over and toast some marshmallows. If you're not able to build a bonfire on your own property, don't fret. This time of year, farms, orchids, and pumpkin patches often host bonfires where you can meet a few new people and maybe tell a few ghost stories, too.

  • Do Something New. Have you been wanting to try yoga or visit that new restaurant down the block? Do you want to start blogging or learn to play the guitar?  As one season fades into the next, take the opportunity to find something new to do, and pursue your passions!
