Autumn Bucket List: 21 Fun Fall Activities for a Festive Season

People mistakenly assume that summer is the only fun season of the year. That couldn’t be further from the truth, though. Whether you’re feeling down because summer is almost over or can’t wait for autumn, I’ve got the perfect idea for you. Writing down your autumn bucket list is the best way to get into the season’s spirit. Here, you’ll find some of my favorite fun fall activities to spice up the coming autumn! Go apple picking.  Find a local apple orchard, and pick yourself some juicy apples. It’s a great opportunity to get in touch with nature while making some fun autumn memories. Plant for spring.  Might sound a little weird, thinking about spring already. But hyacinths, tulips, and daffodils all work best when planted in the autumn. Besides, this will cheer you up if you’re not looking forward to the colder months. Visit the beach one last time. The beach becomes a peaceful place to hang out and order your thoughts when the weather cools. Look at the waves, and enjoy some quiet away from the usual sunbathers and water-sports enthusiasts! Redecorate. Spice up the look of your home (or office) by bringing in some colorful daffodils and lighting some autumn (cinnamon – pumpkin) scented candles. Host Thanksgiving Dinner. Take this traditional chance to give thanks for the people most important to you. Roast pumpkin seeds. Autumn is pumpkin season, and one of our favorite fun fall activities that also doubles as a healthy treat is roasting pumpkin seeds. Plan for Halloween. Whether it’s hosting a spooky party, or just coming up with a jazzy costume, take some time to get in the Halloween spirit. Brew apple cider. Whether from hand-picked apples or store-bought ones, hot apple cider is a delicious fall treat. Take up knitting. Since you’re spending more time indoors, why not take the time to develop a new hobby? Knitting is a great way to spend your free time and will provide you with some unique gifts, come Christmastime! Visit a national park. Autumn is also a great season for hikes in national and state parks. It allows you to revel in those amazing fall colors while bypassing the usual torrid temperatures of summer and spring. Drink pumpkin spice latte. Perhaps the most emblematic autumn drink, brew or buy yourself some pumpkin spice latte, and maybe take a walk to enjoy the famous autumn leaves aesthetic.  Make a caramelized apple. These sugary treats may be a guilty pleasure – but they’re a fall must! Host a bonfire. Before the weather gets too cold, organize an informal get-together with your friends. Gather around the fire, roast some marshmallows, and swap stories, advice, or just catch up. Bake an apple pie. Is there anything more emblematic of this season? Press leaves. Make your very own sweet fall keepsakes by picking fallen leaves with unusual patterns or colors and pressing them between the pages of your favorite book. Carve a pumpkin. Whether you “do” Halloween or not doesn’t really matter. Carving a pumpkin makes for a fun family activity and provides you with a neat creative outlet. Road trip! If you wish to take in more of the seasonal sights, why not take a road trip with your friends? Acknowledge what you’re grateful for. Let the Thanksgiving season serve as a reminder that no matter how upside-down your life may seem, there are still things to be grateful for. Take a daily walk. Going on a daily walk has numerous physical and psychological health benefits (since it’s a routine you force yourself to respect). On top of that, it lets you stop in your busy day and truly look around. Organize a picnic. Pack a thick blanket and some yummy seasonal treats, and head off on a picnic to celebrate nature. Visit a pumpkin patch. Lastly, hit up a local pumpkin patch to pick out your very own pumpkin and learn about pumpkin growth. These are some of my favorite fall activities. What’s on your autumn bucket list?
