One of my favorite quotes I saw at this season was, “Happy force your boyfriend to go apple picking season!” It made me laugh so much because it’s so true. Sometimes when the weather gets colder it’s hard not to just curl up with a blanket and Netflix and call it a night. To break that habit before it even begins, here are 6 things you have to do this fall to make it the best season yet.
Fall Festivities: 6 Things You Have To Do This Fall
Find a festival.
You’d be surprised how many fall-themed festivals take place near you. No matter what you’re looking for, you can find a town near you celebrating something!
Because, duh! You can’t talk about the best things to do in fall without adding pumpkin carving into the mix. Whether you make a day out of pumpkin picking or just head to the grocery store to pick one up, there’s no way you can miss out on carving a pumpkin this year.
Visit a new city.
If you’re anything like me, you’re always itching to travel somewhere new. Instead of planning a big trip with overnight stays, find a town near you and take a day trip. You won’t regret taking in everything a new place has to offer, especially with the beauty of fall foliage all around you.
Go wine tasting.
Wine tasting in the fall just seems right. Visit a vineyard near you for breath taking views and delicious samplings of wine. Wine harvest season runs from August to October in the Northern Hemisphere and February to April in the Southern Hemisphere. This is going to be the times when you can most likely stomp grapes at vineyards!
Visit an orchard.
Supporting local farms and businesses is really important! I love that this time of year so many people gather at local orchards for fresh apple cider and pumpkin baked goods. This season, make a day out of visiting one of your local orchards – go apple picking, pick out pumpkins or take a hayride.
Go for a drive.
Generally speaking, I tend avoid taking the windy backroads, but not this time of year. Take a different route one day to enjoy the beautiful fall foliage autumn has to offer. You won’t regret it!
