1. Chilly weather and comfy clothes
Some love soaking up the summer sunshine, while others may prefer more cool fall weather. You can stay inside and wrap yourself up in a warm blanket while listening to the rain gently drumming on the roof. You can also go outside for some outdoor fall activities such as making a fire. There’s nothing cozier than gathering around a campfire on a cool evening.
And you can’t rock scarves in the summer, but you can bring them out when fall hits. Wrap yourself up in a warm scarf and go outside for some outdoor fall activities in the crisp weather. You can also start sporting all your favorite sweaters and beanies. Whether it’s fuzzy socks or a fluffy robe, it’s time to break out your coziest clothes. And if you want to stay in the fall spirit year round, T-shirts can be worn any season. Check out our fun fall tees.
This holiday is packed with fall fun! You can dream up your most creative costume. If you have little ones, take them trick-or-treating and eat too much candy! Make sure you head to the pumpkin patch and pick out the perfect pumpkin. You can carve a spooky jack-o-lantern, or bake some pumpkin pie or seeds with your favorite seasoning. Or perhaps you want to leave your pumpkin in all its glory on your porch with your other fall decor.
3. Apple picking
Pumpkins aren’t the only fall fruit! The arrival of crisp weather also means deliciously crisp apples are ready to be picked. Go pick some apples and load up your fruit bowl with this fall favorite. Dip them in caramel for an extra sweet treat!
4. Fall foliage
It’s beautiful when all the green leaves turn into a stunning sea of yellow, orange, and red. It’s fun to just marvel at the picture-perfect fall foliage, or you could snap some scenic photos. And jumping into a pile of freshly raked leaves is one of the best outdoor fall activities!
5. Hot food and drinks
Whether it’s apple cider or hot cocoa, there’s nothing like warming up on a chilly fall day with a steaming mug of something sweet. You can also huddle up with a hot bowl of soup that will warm you up from the inside out. What's your favorite soup? We love some homemade chicken noodle soup. You can even get a bit more creative and whip up some chicken enchilada soup, cheeseburger soup, or lasagna soup!
6. Pumpkin everything
Many are excited for when pumpkin spice latte time rolls around each year. Pumpkins make for a mouthwatering pie, but there’s so much more pumpkin flavored food. There’s everything from pumpkin cream cheese to pumpkin waffles to pumpkin pasta. What’s your favorite pumpkin spice food?
7. Fall flavors
Pumpkin isn’t the only fall flavor! There are tons of fun fall flavors, such as cinnamon and maple. Whip up an apple crisp or some cinnamon rolls and fill your house with sweet fall scents. If baking isn't your thing, light up a salted caramel candle to get in the fall spirit. Or celebrate the season with the aroma of an autumn wreath.
Fall means football season begins, and there’s nothing like cheering on your favorite team. You can root them on from the comfort of your living room, or tailgating is also one of the best outdoor fall activities. Even if you’re not a football fan, you can enjoy some food and the rest of the festivities.
9. Fall holidays
Maybe you love spooky stories and dressing up, or maybe you’d rather enjoy a full belly after a relaxing meal with your loved ones. There’s both Halloween and Thanksgiving to look forward to. These festive fall holidays have something for everyone.
10. Fall trips
There’s likely not a blizzard coming down yet, and it’s also not the sweltering heat of summer, making fall the perfect happy medium for travel. As kids go back to school, the summer crowds thin out. And as a bonus, fall can also be one of the cheapest times to travel, and there are still plenty of good times to be had. Head to the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta and see the sky filled with colorful hot air balloons. The beaches in San Diego also have plenty of fall festivals, or you could wander around Leavenworth's Oktoberfest and even rent a cozy cabin!
From pretty fall foliage to absolutely everything pumpkin, there’s so much to look forward to this fall. Make sure to curl up under your coziest blanket, and don’t forget all those outdoor fall activities such as pumpkin picking and frolicking in the chilly weather. No matter what you do, make sure to take in all the fun fall festivities. We'd love to see what you're up to this fall. Tag @rockledgedesignsal to show us the fun things you'll be doing!
