Go to a Real Pumpkin Patch

If you’ve always gotten pumpkins from the store for carving, this year, go to a real pumpkin patch and see the difference yourselves. Trust us. There is no better feeling than going through a patch and find that one special pumpkin to take home.

Make Some Campfire S’mores

Is it fall without S’mores? We don’t think so! This year, forget about the oven s’mores treats and set up a real fire pit in your backyard. Gather the family. It’s time to roast some marshmallows.

Eat a Caramel Apple

Caramel apple is one of our favorite fall traditions. It is also the one time we’re okay with going over our sugar limit! While you’re at it, grab some chocolate-dipped strawberries, pretzels, and bacon as well. Did someone say guilty pleasure?

Go on a Fall Hike

Have you ever hiked to the top of a mountain just to see the color-changing leaves of the fall season? We have. And we think it’s worth all the sweat and effort. That kind of breathtaking beauty cannot be described with words. It can only be experienced with your body and soul.

Pick Some Apples

It’s the harvest season! Go to a farm or an orchard this year to pick the freshest apples and experience the joy of harvest with your family. Tell us, who’s ready to make the best apple pie and apple cobbler at home?

Take a Weekend Off and Go Camping

Nothing can beat off-season pricing at some of the best campgrounds and RV parks! Fall is the perfect season for an impulsive road trip or a well-planned getaway. Enjoy nature’s beauty and spend some quality time with your loved ones this year.

Jump Into a Huge Leaf Pile

Don’t tell us we’re not kids anymore. Fall is the season of innocence and fun, and that includes all adults as well! So before raking your yard clean, gather all the leaves into a huge pile and jump into it!

Go to a Cider Fest

With in-person events coming back, it’s time to get out to your local cider fest! Whether you’re there for hard ciders or prefer the fresh apple cider from local farmers, we know you’ll find something there.

Learn to Knit

Fall is everyone’s craft season, but not all crafts are the same. For us, the most seasonal DIY project would be learning how to knit and make a scarf (only because they’re the best beginner’s project). But of course, you’re more than welcome to go for a sweater.

Run a Marathon

Fall is the perfect season to go on a 5K run. Without the gross summer weather, the marathon will be more fun, especially for new runners. Think of it as a cool group event, not a sports competition.

Learn to Play Guitar

Country songs, camper van, and your loved one. Doesn’t it sound romantic? Fall has all the necessary elements for you to learn a song on the guitar. It’s time to express your feelings via melodies.

Go to the Beach One Last Time Before it Gets Cold

You never know when the cold weather will hit, so go to the beach before winter arrives! Beach glamping in the fall is a great idea as it allows you to enjoy the beach without the usual crowd while enjoying off-season campsite prices.
