Fall is in the air and is giving us lots of warm & cozy feelings. The crisp air, the changing of colors, the smell of pumpkin spice, and the anticipation of the best holidays of the year are just a few of our favorite things. Because fall is often times short-lived, we’ve put together a list of things we want to do before the season ends.
There’s nothing more “fall” than driving to an apple orchard to pick some juicy apples. Not sure if it’s the actual picking of the apples, the activities like hay rides, or knowing that you are going to be making some yummy apple treats later on that gets us the most excited, but either way, it’s something we always look forward to. Check out some local apple orchards near you.
A pumpkin patch is always a great idea, whether you are going with young kids, your friends, or a fun date. Not only can you hunt for the perfect pumpkin to carve later on, but pumpkin patches are also perfect for getting that picture-perfect fall experience. Corn mazes, petting zoo, train rides, and more are some other the other activities that you can experience at some pumpkin patches. Grab your flannels and get the family together for the perfect photo op at a pumpkin patch near you!

Gather up your closest guys and gals to celebrate Friendsgiving! Friendsgiving has become more and more popular in recent years but for those who don’t know, Friendsgiving is a term that blends friends and Thanksgiving.
