5 Ways To Enjoy Outdoor Fall Activities
There are so many different varieties of apples to choose from, so plan your trip according to what’s ripe for your purposes. Our favorite thing to do with our apples is making homemade applesauce. It’s super easy to do and if canned, lasts us for months.
There are so many great ways to be kind to others and make someone’s day. Fall is a great time to go for a train ride with your kids. The view out of the windows is lovely and there are so many fun places to go! If you have access to an Amtrak train or other passenger train, pick a destination where you can spend a few hours and take the train!
When the leaves are changing and the weather is cooling, a hike is a wonderful way to see wildlife and connect with the outdoors. Bring along the binoculars and your camera to capture views of the birds and interesting flora. In the meantime, here are five ways to safely enjoy outdoor fall activities and take advantage of all that autumn has to offer.
How could we forget the all-classic corn maze? Whether it’s at a local farm or a town fall festival, finding your way through a corn maze is an ultimate family-friendly activity you can’t miss. Gordo’s Fun Farm is new in 2020, and is perfect for kids of all ages.
And cinnamon rolls…and a nice grainy bread with seeds, and cookies. Kids and adults alike will love the colorful light displays, an enchanted forest, pumpkin reef, pirate’s cove, and live artist demonstrations. There are three corn mazes to choose from, including one that traces 5 miles of maze across 30 acres of field. In the harvest season, you’ll find plenty of squashes, like pumpkin and butternut squash. Another great place to visit in the fall is Cripple Creek, Colorado thanks to awesome events like the Autumn and Art Show. Hikes can vary from easy to moderate to rock-climbing-level of difficulty.
They can either paint the leaves and stamp on the paper or use the leaves as a relief and paint around the edges. Use fall colored paint and let them get creative. Friday night lights at the football field are a big deal where I grew up. Spend an evening or afternoon outside cheering on your local high school football team. Between the actual game, the cheerleaders, dancers, mascot and marching band, football games are fun for the whole family to watch.
Be sure to get any necessary permits from your town first. Enjoy free admission for hot mugs of apple cider and activities like horseshoe tournaments, pony rides, and live music. And something a little more challenging for older kids. Fall is a great time to take advantage of old-school farm faves, like winding your way through a corn maze. U-pick, we pick, your kiddos will love picking bright crispy apples on a sunny day. It seems like almost everything has its own festival during the harvest season.
