Looking for some amazing outdoor fall activities for yourself or for your family? Then you are in a perfect place. Now is the perfect time you can start making your outdoor fall activities list!
But don’t worry you have lots of time to check off these fun fall activities. Getting outdoors is the best way to connect with nature.
Take these next few months as an opportunity to connect with friends and family outdoors all while enjoying the crisp cool air. And if you are lucky, you might even get some fresh apple cider, pumpkin spice everything, and create some amazing memories.
Here we outlined 10 amazing outdoor fall activities for you!
1- Apple Picking
if you are lucky enough to live near an orchard, this is such an awesome way to spend your time. And of course, the bonus is apples for a day. We never had any problem eating our way through bushels of apples.
Some of our favorite uses for apple include homemade apple butter, apple cinnamon overnight oats, or most favorite, spiced apple and oat pancakes with homemade cinnamon vanilla caramelized walnuts!
Be sure to wear proper shoes and be wary of trails after the rain. The leaves can get incredibly slippery and make trails more difficult than advertised online. Always be prepared with water and a snack and let someone know your intended hike, especially if you expect to lose cell phone service.
Also, make a note of what time the trail closes, you don’t want to get locked in. Make sure to capture all the pictures of our hike!
3- Corn Maze
This is a must for us! John and we did a corn maze last year and it was the highlight of the month for us! John has already stalked the website to see when they open, it’s such a great time!
Get a team together and see who can get through the maze first!
4- Pumpkin Patch
This is a perfect full-body exercise and we bet you won’t have to do an arm workout for days if you pick the right sized pumpkin you! And don’t forget, those seeds are so much tasty, so don’t throw them out as you carve your pumpkins later.
P.S. please note that the pumpkins you pick are not the same pumpkins you make pumpkin puree out of. Those are called sugar pumpkins and they are much smaller!
Mountain biking or just getting out on your bike again. During the spring and fall, it’s AMAZING to ride your bike.
Remember to check the tire pressure, your brakes, and to wear a helmet. Take water and a snack if you plan to ride things over 10 miles round trip.
6- Visit Local National Parks
Once school is back in session, these tourist attractions tend to attract a lot fewer tourists, even on the weekend.
So if you have been waiting for the perfect and good time to check out a national park or historical sight near to you, now is the time to check it out! Just Remember, do some research before you go but be open to learning new things.
7- Visit The Zoo
This is one of the perfect adventure lists all summer. Fall is a great and perfect time to get to the zoo and see the animals.
The air is cooler and smooth, the animals can spend more time outdoors with you without being exhausted from the heat. everyone is happy!
8- Take Your Workout Outdoors
Whether you’re in a perfect relationship with the treadmill or a devoted yoga lover, it’s time to take your workout outside. Enjoy the beautiful views and refreshing air on your morning jog or do a few sun salutations in your yard or local park.
No matter what is your choice of workout, aim to take it outside at least once a week (but don’t forget a sweatshirt and hat when it gets colder!).
Just because the air is getting cooler doesn’t mean that you can’t’ get out on the water. John and we hope to get out to the White Water Center again and do some canoeing this fall!
We are hoping that once the summer heat is over, there will be fewer boats on the water so this will be a calmer experience.
10- Raking Leaves
This could also include trimming/pruning trees and bushes, planting fall flowers, installing a new patio, or just good old raking leaves!
Don’t forget to keep that core engaged and to stretch for at least 10 to 15 minutes after the repetitive movement.
That is what I found worth sharing about outdoor fall activities. Kindly comment below and let us know what your take on this?
