Fall is the perfect time to get outside and enjoy the cooler weather. Here are a few fall activities to add to your bucket list:

1. Apple picking

Fall is the best time to go apple picking! Not only is it a fun activity to do with friends or family, but it’s also a great way to get outdoors and enjoy the autumn weather.

2. Drink apple cider


There’s nothing like a crisp fall day, and one of the best ways to enjoy it is by sipping on a warm cup of apple cider. Although it’s available year-round, apple cider just tastes better in the fall. Whether you like it plain or spiked, this fall beverage is a must-try. So grab a cup and enjoy all the fall has to offer.

3. Have caramel apples

My dentist might not like this one, but one of the best things about fall is the food. Caramel apples are the perfect fall treat. They’re sweet, gooey, and full of fall flavors. And they’re easy to make. Just core an apple, dip it in caramel, and roll it in your favorite fall toppings. Fall is the perfect time to try out new flavor combinations. For a traditional caramel apple, try dipping it in chopped nuts or shredded coconut. Or for a fun twist, try dipping it in melted chocolate or crushed candy canes. There are endless possibilities when it comes to topping your caramel apple. Get creative and have fun!

4. Make apple sauce

Apple season is upon us, and that means it’s time to get creative in the kitchen! One of the best ways to enjoy fall apples is to make homemade applesauce. It’s easy to make and can be kept in the fridge for up to a week. Plus, there’s nothing quite like the taste of fresh applesauce.

5. Eat apple pie

One of the best parts of fall is all the delicious food that comes with it. One of my favorite fall foods is apple pie. There’s something about the combination of sweet and tart apples, spices, and flaky pie crust that just screams fall. Apple pie is the perfect dessert to enjoy after a fall meal or on a chilly autumn day. If you’re looking for something to add to your fall bucket list, make sure to include baking (or eating) an apple pie. Trust me, it’s worth it!

6. Go pumpkin picking

Fall is the perfect time to go pumpkin picking. Not only is it a fun activity for the whole family, but it’s also a great way to get outside and enjoy the crisp autumn air. Plus, what could be more festive than picking your own pumpkins to decorate for Halloween?

Whether you’re looking for the perfect jack-o-lantern or just want to stock up on fall baking supplies, going pumpkin picking is a must-do item on your fall bucket list. So round up your friends or family, head to your nearest pumpkin patch, and get ready for some fall fun.

7. Have a pumpkin spice drink

There’s something about fall that just makes me want to curl up with a good book and a cozy blanket. And of course, no fall reading session is complete without a steaming cup of pumpkin spice latte.

This delicious fall drink is the perfect way to warm up on a chilly day, and it’s also a great way to get into the fall spirit. If you’re looking for something to add to your fall bucket list, make sure you include getting a pumpkin spice latte. Unless you’re lactose intolerant or something, you won’t regret it!

8. Eat a pumpkin flavored treat

Have pumpkin bread or any other edible item with pumpkin in it. I love pumpkin soup.

9. Roast pumpkin seeds

One of the best things about fall is all the fun activities that come along with it. From pumpkin picking to apple cider sipping, there’s no shortage of ways to enjoy the season. And one fall tradition that everyone can get behind is roasting pumpkin seeds. Not only is it a delicious snack, but it’s also a great way to use up those extra seeds you have lying around. Plus, roasting your own pumpkin seeds is a lot cheaper than buying them from the store. So if you’re looking for a fun fall activity to add to your list, make sure to give pumpkin seed roasting a try. Who knows, you might just find yourself hooked.

10. Roast marshmallows

Crisp fall nights are the perfect time to roast marshmallows over a crackling fire. This classic fall activity is a great way to enjoy the cooler weather and spend time with friends or family. The best part about roasting marshmallows is that it’s easy to do and only requires a few supplies. All you need is a bag of marshmallows, some skewers, and a fire. Once you have everything set up, simply roast the marshmallows to your desired level of doneness and enjoy. Whether you like them slightly charred or perfectly golden brown, roasting marshmallows is a delicious way to enjoy the fall season.

11. Visit a corn maze

Fall is the perfect time to go on a nature walk, take in the crisp autumn air, and admire the changing leaves. But why settle for a simple walk when you can add a little adventure by going through a corn maze? corn mazes are a great way to enjoy the outdoors and have some fun with friends or family. And, if you get lost, don’t worry – most corn mazes have staff on hand to help guide you out. So, if you’re looking for a unique fall activity, be sure to add a corn maze to your list.

12. Take a fall scenic drive

One of the best things about fall is that the weather is finally cool enough to spend extended periods of time outside without wilting like a leaf. So why not take advantage of the cooler temperatures and plan a fall scenic drive?

There are plenty of beautiful places to see fall foliage, and you don’t even have to leave your car to enjoy the view. Pack a picnic lunch and hit the open road – just be sure to keep an eye out for deer crossing signs!

13. Use fall scented candles

One of fall’s best qualities is its scent. From pumpkin spice to fresh-cut grass, there are so many wonderful aromas to enjoy. Candles are a great way to enjoy these fall scents, and there are plenty of fall-scented options to choose from.

Pumpkin spice candles are always popular, but there are also candles with scents like apple cider, cinnamon, and nutmeg. For something a little different, try a candle with a fall Leaves scent. Whatever your preference, fall scented candles are a great way to enjoy the season. This is one of my favorite becasue it’s easy to infuse into everyday life.

14. Have a bonfire

The fall season is the perfect time to gather around a bonfire with friends and family. There’s something about the crisp autumn air that makes sitting by a crackling fire even more enjoyable.

Not to mention, it’s the perfect opportunity to roast marshmallows and make s’mores. If you’re looking for fall bucket list ideas, make sure to add having a bonfire to the top of your list. You won’t regret it!

15. Go on a hayride

Fall is the perfect time to go on a hayride! There’s something about taking in all the fall colors while riding on a tractor pulled wagon filled with hay that just feels so magical.

And if you get lucky, you might even be able to snag a cup of hot apple cider to enjoy while you ride. Trust me, it’s the perfect fall activity and one that should definitely be on your fall bucket list. So what are you waiting for? Get out there and enjoy all that fall has to offer!
