As the weather gets colder, we tend to spend more time indoors. That’s not to say that there isn’t enough to do outside. There are actually tons! So get your sweaters back on (it is sweater weather after all) and try out these cooler ideas for the fall! It doesn’t just have to be about going back to school or no more summer vacations!
Corn is going to get harvested soon, which means the stalks will be ripe for running through. Why not visit a local farm and see if they have a corn maze that you can triapse through? It doesn’t have to be one of those scary ones that you see on Halloween, but bonus points to you if you’re willing to try out a spooky version.
It’s been one heck of a summer and those apples that have been growing on the trees all season are ripe for picking. Take some time next weekend to visit your local orchard and pick some fresh apples to bring home. If you missed out on strawberry picking this summer, then the fall is the perfect time to go visit an orchard.
Visit a Winery
The grapes will soon be picked off the vines, so here’s your last chance to visit your local wineries for the season. The grapes that are currently ready to be picked will be at their prime, since the weather is getting cooler. Did you know that ice wine is made by having grapes freeze during overnight frosts? If you want a sweet wine without having to dish out he dollars for ice wine, try getting your hands on a bottle made with grapes from this month.
Knit a Scarf
Wtih the cold weather looming over us (you feel that breeze don’t you), it’s inevitable that winter will follow. And before you know it, the snow will fall and you’ll wish you could have knitted a scarf to keep yourself warm. Why not get a head start on that and make your scarf now? You know it’s not going to happen overnight. And by the time it gets cold you’ll just tell yourself next year. When you really know that the same thing will just happen all over again.
Make S’mores at Home
What better a way to elongate the summer than by enjoying s’mores in the comfort of your own home? Remake the popular summer camp and cottage dessert in your kitchen by filling a pan with chocolate and marshmallows. All you’ve goto do is dip into it with your graham crackers and you’ll have an instant summer fiesta in your mouth while remaining warm in your house.
Go on a Haunted Walk
With Halloween right around the corner and the air crisp with a fall chill, now is the best time to go on a haunted walk. Go any later in the season and you may catch a chill from the winter breeze. At this moment, the nights are still warm enough that you’d be comfortable venturing outdoors for a couple of hours to get acquainted with your city’s ghostly visitors!
Fly a Kite Through the Fall Breeze
The best part about fall is the cool autumn breeze that it brings with it. Why not take advantage of all this wind and fly a kite before the snow starts to fall? It may seem like such a summery thing to do, but trust us. When it comes to transitioning weather, you’re going to want to take full advantage of what it has to offer with a summery nostalgic touch.
