The countdown to the official first day of fall has begun! While we’ve enjoyed the fruits of summer, we’re ready to lean into all things autumn and welcome a new season. From outdoor activities to cozy moments indoors, there are plenty of fall activities to check off your bucket list!
Experience Color Changes by Leaf Peeping
With the leaves starting to change color, it’s a great time to get outside and see all the different shades. The best part is leaf peeping can be done anywhere. Enjoy while walking through your neighborhood or visit your local arboretum to see the everchanging foliage.
Start a New Book
There is no better time than fall to bundle up in a sweater and chunky blanket to read! Since it’s not too chilly out, take your reading adventure outside to breathe in the fresh air and enjoy the crisp breeze. A glass of warm apple cider on the side is sure to help set the mood!
Go Apple Picking
September is the season for apples and apple orchards can be a fun place to kick off the fall season! With a variety of different apples, you can walk through and pick your favorites to eat straight or bake with. You’ll also find yummy seasonal treats like apple cider donuts, chilled apple cider, and apple butter.
Try a New Fall Recipe
There are so many foods that just taste better in the fall. Homemade chili, maple-flavored oatmeal, and dishes featuring sweet potatoes come to mind! Experiment in the kitchen with cozy, hearty recipes to bring the fall season indoors. If you’re looking for a few ideas, Dr. Dean has some favorite fall go-to recipes!
