Activities To Welcome Fall That Aren’t Apple Picking

We still have a couple of weeks until the official start of fall, but we’re ready to embrace the season. Some autumnal activities seem to get all the attention — we’re looking at you apple picking and pumpkin carving — but there are all kinds of other ways to get into the spirit of the season with family and friends.

This year, why not try one of these out-of-the-box activities to celebrate the arrival of fall:

  • Build a bonfire - With cooler weather on the way, it’s the ideal time to put that fire pit to good use and make some s’mores.
  • Write a letter - Reach out to connect with someone you’ve lost touch with by handwriting them a letter.
  • Bake some bread - Fill your home with the delicious aroma of freshly baked banana or pumpkin bread. And if you’re feeling generous, share a loaf or two with a neighbor.
  • Indulge in the flavors of fall - Tis the season for all things pumpkin, so treat yourself to a pumpkin spice latte or muffin, or if that’s not your thing, pick up a maple frosted scone or apple cider doughnut instead.
  • Take a hike somewhere new - Explore a different trail in your area or plan a road trip to hike in a totally different spot where you can get a good view of the changing leaves.
  • Go for a bike ride - Another great way to see the fall foliage and enjoy the cooler weather is on a bicycle. Whether you’re near a city or out in the country, you can just see so much more when you’re not in the car.
  • Light fall-scented candles - It might still feel like summer in places with soaring temperatures, but you can trick your senses by burning a fall-scented candle inside.
  • Make candy apples - Whether you pick them yourself at a farm or buy them at the grocery store, making candy apples is a tasty way to get into the fall spirit. With toppings like caramel, peanuts, Oreos and sprinkles, they’re a guaranteed hit.
  • Tailgate at a football game - Football fans know that one of the best parts of going to cheer on your team is celebrating with food, drinks and friends outside the stadium before the game.
