Winter is coming and soon you may be trapped indoors battling boredom. Get out and have some fun before it is too late! Autumn is a wonderful time to enjoy the crisp air, colors and adventure of the changing season.
So what can you do to enjoy yourself this fall? Here are some exciting opportunities to try:
Autumn is a fantastic time to get outside and enjoy what nature has to offer. Whether you are the outdoorsy and adventurous type or not, there is plenty to do to keep busy:
Zip Line Fun: Get a real thrill soaring high above the trees. Zip line and roping climbing activities are a great way to get your adrenalin pumping on a cold crisp morning.
Kayaking: nothing is quite as exhilarating as a rough ride over the rapids of a nearby river. Or, if you prefer a slower ride, consider going out for a sunrise or sunset cruise on your favorite lake.
Hiking: get out and enjoy some fresh air and sunshine during a hike through the woods.
Hot Air Balloon Ride: See the fall foliage from a whole new vantage point – above the trees!
Hunting: Whether you have ever tried your hand at this sport or not doesn’t matter, hunting offers a sense of adventure and a bit of a chase.
Corn Maze Fun: Looking for a slower paced activity to enjoy with a group? Scout out a local corn maze for hours of frolicking fun. Add a sense of tingling fear by trying one after dark!
Apple Picking: a great way to enjoy the outdoors and get something in the bargain. After picking a bushel or two, head back home to bake up some fresh apple pie or create some other fall favorite in the kitchen.
Pumpkin Patch: Feel like a kid again with a trip to find that perfect carving pumpkin. Then head back home and design a modern-day jack-o-lantern to enjoy.
If you are a wine connoisseur, grab a few friends and head out for a day visiting local wineries and tasting their wares. For a more romantic getaway with someone special, book a room at a local inn and enjoy the weekend together sampling area wines and food.
Festivals & Fairs
Harvest time is known for one thing: great food. No matter where you live, the odds are good that you can scout out a few fall festivals and fairs featuring the local bounty. A great day to spend alone or with friends, fairs offer the opportunity to enjoy great food and some old fashioned fun in a friendly atmosphere.
Autumn is not the time to sit at home alone. You can relax all winter. Today is the day to get up and have some fun. Enjoy the bounty of the season with a multitude of activities designed just for fun.
