18 Best Fall Activities For Your Family
While we will miss summer barbecues, block parties, backyard cookouts, swimming, and going to the shore, we could not be any more excited for the fall. The air is cool and crisp, the foliage changes to beautiful colors, the wonderful aroma of nutmeg and cinnamon fills the air, scholars are back in school, homes are decorated with pumpkins, gourds, and cornstalks, and of course, all the scrumdiddlyumptious fall desserts and treats! Fall is an incredible season.
In addition, autumn brings an abundance of fun fall activities, including apple picking, nature walks, hayrides, and fall festivals. When it comes to inspirational and irresistible things for you and your family to partake in this season, we have got you covered.
We selected 18 best fall activities for your family to enjoy during this festive time.
Host a Fall Potluck
Invite friends and family to bring some of their favorite fall dishes to your home or to the park.
Carve a Pumpkin
Carving a pumpkin is a must-do activity. Get creative by switching it up and adding a beautiful and tasteful geometric pattern.
Make Caramel Apples
Caramel apples are the quintessential fall dessert. Add some fun by decorating them with delicious toppings.
Have a Pie-Making Party
Who doesn’t love pie during the fall? With family and friends, have a pie-making party where everyone bakes a pie and then votes on which one is the best. We recommend fall-inspired pie flavors like apple, sweet potato, pecan, and pumpkin.
Bring home a bushel of delicious freshly picked apples. This is the perfect fall activity for all ages.
Take a Scenic Train Ride
An exciting way to see the fall foliage is by taking a train ride. Sit back, relax, and take in all the beautiful views.
Head to a Fall Festival
A fall festival tends to have countless fun activities to do, including painting pumpkins, hayrides, crafting, and enjoying delectable fall-inspired treats.
Create a Fall Wreath with Your Kids
Have fun with the family by creating and designing your own fall wreath for your front door.
Indulge in Delectable Apple-Cider Doughnuts
Whether going to your local farmer’s market or making them from scratch, apple-cider doughnuts are a must-have for a fall treat. P.S: they are best eaten warm!
Go Horseback Riding
A great way to see fall’s astounding foliage and nature is by trotting around nature trails while horseback riding. Saddle up!
Luxury Tailgate a Football Game
Enjoy having tasty drinks and snacks with family and friends before a game? A fun twist to make it unique and classy is by creating it more luxurious.
Create a Fall Flower Arrangement
While summer is over, do not disgard your flower vases. Creating a flower arrangement with your kids or friends will allow your home to have seasonal florals, foliage, and fall harvest. It will especially be great to display for Thanksgiving dinner.
Get Lost in a Corn Maze
If you are looking for the ultimate fall activity, going to a corn maze with your family should be on the top of your list. Have fun with all the twists and turns. Try not to get too lost in the maze!
Family Fall Glamping or Camping
Fire up the pit and grab the chocolate, graham crackers, and marshmallows. Your family will have the best time camping in the autumn. Everyone can choose a different activity, whether going fishing, kayaking, or grilling.
Picking the Perfect Pumpkin
Pumpkin picking is a fall activity classic. Whether you pick the smallest or largest pumpkin, your family members or friends will have the best time. Make sure you ask if they have a hayride while you are there! You will be able to paint, carve, or simply leave your pumpkin alone. We suggest to decorate the exterior of your home with your new pumpkins.
Visit a Sunflower Field
With autumn comes beautiful florals and harvest, particularly sunflowers. It is time for you to head over to a sunflower field and pick out some fresh flowers, as well as take stunning photography.
Shop at a Local Farmer’s Market
Purchase the best and freshest fall produce at a local farmer’s market. We recommend creating warm, cozy, and appetizing recipes.
