Temperatures are dropping and autumn is right around the corner. Make the most out of these crisp autumn days and spend some time doing fun activities you and your entire family can enjoy. Don’t know where to start? Here are 5 ideas for fun fall activities:


  1. Decorate the home: make decorating your home a new family tradition. Whether you’re carving or painting pumpkins, making leaf wreaths or candlelight centerpieces, or putting out all your Halloween decor, decorating can be an enjoyable activity for everyone in your family.
  2. Visit a local farm: check if any nearby farms offer activities such as harvest festivals, apple picking, pumpkin patches, corn mazes, face painting, hay rides, and many more. These activities are sure to keep the whole family entertained. So gather everyone for a visit and don’t forget to pick up some freshly baked goods and sip on warm apple cider while there.
  3. Attend a football game: football season begins in the fall months and if you’re into sports and a football fan, you won’t want to miss the opportunity to attend a game and watch all the excitement in person. Whether you’re watching a NFL game or a local high school game, you’re sure to have a fun time cheering on your favorite team.
  4. Go for a scenic drive or stroll and enjoy the fall foliage: autumn is peak time to see the colors of trees change into stunning reds, oranges, and yellows. Take in the fresh air and enjoy the beauty of the outdoors this season. Temperatures are cooler during the fall months, making hiking an enjoyable activity without breaking a sweat. And taking a scenic drive with the whole family is another great option to see the picturesque fall foliage.
  5. Rent a cabin in the woods: a short weekend getaway to a cozy cabin is a great relaxing activity to do in the fall. You can cozy up by the campfire, make some s’mores, drink hot beverages, and make some lifelong memories with your family.
