The air outside is crisp and smells like a combination of pine leaves and pumpkin spice. The leaves have started to change colors, filling the world with soft hues of orange and red. The sun is setting earlier and the feeling of fall is finally settling in. The fall is undeniably one of the best seasons. It’s the perfect temperature where you can spend the day outside in a light jacket and not freeze.
Halloween and Thanksgiving are around the corner, and every weekend is filled with going apple picking and sipping on pumpkin spice lattes. There are countless fun activities to do in the fall. So break out your boots and flannels and take advantage of the nice weather before temperatures drop below freezing, here are 7 activities you must do this fall:
1. Go to a Pumpkin Patch
What’s fall without a pumpkin patch? Picking pumpkins is an absolute necessary activity for the fall time. Grab some friends, put on your favorite fall outfit, and hit up your nearest pumpkin patch. You can then carve the pumpkins, roast the seeds, or use them to make some yummy pumpkin desserts.
2. Go on a Hayride
A hayride is another quintessential fall activity you have to take part in. You can take a trip through the hay filled farms while sipping on hot apple cider. Does anything sound better than that?
3. Have a Halloween Party
Of course, a Halloween party is mandatory for the fall. Invite some friends and throw the best Halloween party they’ve ever seen, filled with spooky snacks and scary decor. And no Halloween party is complete without a costume contest. You can do a matching costume with your beau to really win over the crowd, like with one of the many Tipsy Elves couples costumes.
4. Make Your Own Pumpkin Spice Latte
Sure, you can hit up your nearest cafe and buy a pumpkin spice latte- but it’s a lot more fun to make it yourself at home. You can be your own barista with the Teaspressa Pumpkin Spice Duo Kit that comes with all the necessary ingredients to make the best pumpkin spice latte you’ve probably ever had.
5. Go Apple Picking
Just like with pumpkin picking, apple picking is a necessity for the fall. Not only is apple picking just a fun activity, you can make all sorts of delicious fall treats with your freshly picked apples. You can make apple pie, apple cupcakes, apple crisp- the apple options are truly endless.
6. Have a Bonfire
And roast some s’mores, of course. Gather some friends and stock up on lots of graham crackers, chocolate, and marshmallows and have a classic fall bonfire. Just make sure you have enough firewood to keep the fire going all night long.
7. Watch Scary Movies
And of course, no fall is complete with binge watching scary movies. Bake some Halloween cookies and light your favorite fall scented candles and make a night out of it with your friends. It’s the perfect activity for when the fall weather starts to get a little bit too cold for your liking.
The fall is filled with colorful leaves, cozy jackets, and delicious apple pie. It is your last opportunity to spend time enjoying the outdoors before it gets too cold to step outside, so take advantage of it while you still can! Any of these activities are fun to do alone or with loved ones and a great way to make your fall extra special this year. So put on your best outfit and get on with your favorite fall activity- the clock is ticking!
