1. Fall Drives
The changing colors in the fall make a Sunday drive something extra special.
2. Night Sky Viewing
Fall is one of the best times for night skygazing because the sun sets earlier, and the Milky Way is in full view in our northern hemisphere.
3. Fishing Fun
If you’re looking to get your line in the water before the cold weather hits, then check out one of the many rivers and ponds available for fishing.
Hiking is a great way to enjoy the outdoors while getting some exercise. Be sure to carry along a backpack with the following: sunscreen, water, bug repellent, snacks, first aid kit with bandaids, extra socks, raincoat, ziplock bags, wet wipes, and bear spray (where applicable).
5. Hit the Hot Springs
Soaking in the hot mineral water pools not only feels wonderful but also has many health benefits.
6. Fall Bike Tour
Get a group together for an exhilarating time on two wheels as the weather cools down and leaves begin to change and fall from the trees. Fall beauty, fresh air, a little exercise and good company.
7. TAKE IN A FOOTBALL GAME
The chill in the air, the excitement of the game, the fans cheering on their favorite team, eating popcorn and drinking cocoa. Be sure to take along a blanket for the cold bleachers!
8. ROASTING MARSHMALLOWS
Nothing beats roasting marshmallows or making s’mores by the fire on a cool night wrapped in a blanket!
9. FALL FESTIVALS, PUMPKIN CARVING CONTESTS & HAY RIDES
Check your local paper and social media for an assortment of fun events for the entire family!
10. MOVIE NIGHT
Gather round with a bowl of popcorn, lots of pillows and blankets, select your favorite family movie or take in a movie at a local theater for great surround-sound and theater popcorn!
11. BOWLING FUN
When it’s chilly outside, it’s always a fun time to share a pizza and see how many pins you can knock down – and how many times you or a friend/family member tosses a “gutter ball”!
12. COMMUNITY SERVICE
There are sure to be lots of community service opportunities and ways to help out friends and neighbors – raking leaves, packing away lawn furniture, garden tools and summer décor.
