Fall is almost here and that means we have a few weeks of beautiful scenery and cool (but not cold) weather to look forward to. So before you pull out your heavy winter parkas and gloves, do yourself a favor and make time for some fall-friendly activities so you—and your friends and loved ones—can enjoy the outdoors.
Not sure what you want to do? Read on for a list of six fun, outdoorsy activities you can organized that are perfectly suited for the fall weather season.
1. Go apple picking
There’s no better way to welcome the fall weather season than going apple picking. September and October are the prime months for ripe apples, so spend a day strolling the trees of your local orchard so you can turn your pickings into pies, applesauce, and cider when you get home.
2. Plan a picnic
If you thought picnics in the park were reserved for spring, then it’s time to think again. Pack a bag with wine, fruits, and cheese and grab one of our wool blankets so you can dine al fresco style and take in the gorgeous fall scenery.
3. Go camping
‘Tis the season for going camping. Whether you pitch a tent deep in the woods or sleep under the stars in your own backyard, throw on some of our comfy loungewear and snuggle up with one of our plush blankets and enjoy the fall weather by camping outside.
4. Take a hike or bike ride
There’s something about the crisp air and colorful red, orange, and yellow leaves that makes hiking and biking during the fall weather season so wonderful. Whether you plan for a hike in the mountains or woods, or a short bike ride around town, get a good outdoor trek in before it gets too cold (and icy).
5. Go for a scenic drive
Not in the mood for a hike or bike ride? No problem. Take a scenic drive through the woods, mountains, or just around town instead, so you can still take in all the beautiful, changing colors of the tree leaves. Just don’t forget to make a good playlist!
6. Collect leaves
Nothing feels more distinctly fall than collecting fallen tree leaves. Take your kids on a trip to the park to gather up pretty leaves or search for some around your own yard. Either way you’ll get a chance to appreciate the beauty of fall and the changing seasons. And, you can frame them for fall foliage art for the whole season
Before the cold winter season sets in (and we’re all stuck indoors), make time for a fall-friendly outdoor activity, so you can enjoy the weather and the scenery.
