Enjoy every minute of the crisp autumn season with these must-do activities.
Pick your own produce
Head over to an apple orchard or pumpkin patch to bring home produce you literally handpick. Not only can you enjoy your tasty takings, but it’s a great bonding activity for kids and grownups alike. Find out where to find the best pumpkin patch in every state.
Visit a farmers’ market
Heading to a local farmers’ market is one of our all-time favorite fall activities! People often consider this one a summer outing but there are still a few months left to enjoy seasonal, locally grown food from a farmers’ market. Bring your pickings back, and get creative with apples, beets, leeks, parsnips, and mushrooms—all of which are best in the fall.
Make caramel apples
Autumn is apple season, making it the perfect time to enjoy some sweet, sticky caramel apples. Invite some friends over, and set up a dipping bar with crushed peanuts, granola, white chocolate chips, and more. If you prefer dipping slices to whole fruits, use this simple trick to keep apples from browning.
