5 Things to Do This Fall

November 5, 2017


“Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower.” – Albert Camus


The change in season brings with it many gifts such as fallen leaves, apple cider, cozy sweaters, crisp air, and all things pumpkin. There’s something about fall that makes it a favorite for all of us. To take advantage of this magical season I’ve compiled a simple, however, much-needed weekend bucket list.

Go Apple Picking

Similar to a pumpkin patch, going to an apple orchard and picking apples is another activity fall is known for — and one I always look forward to. Grocery store apples will never quite compare to enjoying a fresh, hand-picked apple straight from the tree. Besides making for a yummy snack, apples are always fun to bake into a pie. Yum!



Immerse yourself in the colorful leaves by walking through local hiking paths. Plus there’s nothing like the brisk fall air on your cheeks as you hike through one of nature’s most beautiful chapters.


Cider Tasting

While you’re at the apple orchard be sure to check out if they also serve hard cider. It’s super fun to sample a flight of flavors. The other weekend I went to Gould Hill Farm and was able to get into the festive fall spirit by consuming apples in the most fun way – by sipping some deliciously sweet cider blends.


Cook With Food That’s In Season

Hit up your local farmer’s market or nearby farm for food that’s in season. Think root vegetables and squashes. Both are excellent to either roast or turn into a cozy soup!

Go For A Drive To Look At The Foliage

There’s nothing like the leaves changing in the fall — the burst of warm colors (deep amber, burnt orange, fiery burgundy) against the crisp air is soul-cleansing. Grab your keys, turn up your favorite music, find a winding, scenic route, and get lost in the beauty of fall.
