Fall is finally here and with it comes cooler temperatures and gorgeous colors. If you’re looking for ways to enjoy all autumn has to offer, but need a little bit of inspiration, our handy list is just what you need. With that in mind, let’s discuss some of the best activities to help you spend time outside this fall.
1. Soaking in Your Spa
Nothing beats a soothing soak in your outdoor hot tub. The jet massage relieves tense muscles while the heat of the water melts away stress and spikes your body’s endorphin production. As your body is flooded with this feel-good chemical and you breathe in the crisp fall air, you can’t help but feel relaxed and contented. So, if you’re looking for a laid-back way to relax in the fresh autumn air, you can’t do better than your hot tub.
2. Going for a Hike
Speaking of fresh air, there’s no healthier way to get an extra dose of it than by going for a hike. Not only is hiking great exercise, it can also help you unwind. How can you not feel serene looking at Mother Nature in all of her fall splendor? If you’re unfamiliar with the area, or have never been hiking, give these trails a gander. Some of them also double as mountain biking trails if you’re up for a cycling challenge.
3. Start a Campfire
If you’re looking for a way to enjoy your outdoor space in the evenings, a fire pit is a great addition to your yard. There’s nothing better than huddling around a campfire, sipping hot chocolate or cider and looking at the stars. Wiener roasts and making s’mores is fun for the kids, even when the fall air is nippy. Just throw on a heavier coat and a hat or bundle up with blankets and enjoy as many fall evening as you can.
4. Apple and pumpkin picking
What could possibly say fall more than crisp red apples and bright orange pumpkins? A great activity for the whole family, apple picking not only gets you outside in the fresh air, but you get to enjoy the fruits of your labors. So head on over to the nearest orchard and spend the afternoon picking apples. You can also swing by the pumpkin patch to pick out pumpkins to turn into jack o’lanterns. After all, Halloween will be here before you know it.
5. Playing Sports
If you enjoy being active, get some family and friends together for a game of touch football. Instead of tackling players like you do in the traditional game, the person carrying the ball must be touched by a member of the opposite team to end a down. This game is a lot of fun for anyone who likes being active. Just make sure that if you have younger kids playing that the game play is adjusted to suit them.
