1. Take a fall walk

Walks are free and there’s something for everyone! I love to bring my camera and capture some of the fall beauty. Younger kiddos will have fun just exploring and if your kids are older you can make up a scavenger hunt for them and have them find pinecones, yellow leaves, etc! You could always take home your findings and make it into a craft for some free and meaningful fall decor!

2. Visit a farm/pumpkin patch/apple orchard

Even if you don’t plan on buying or picking anything, it’s not fall without going to at least one of these! It’s still fun to just walk around and see the pretty scenery and everyone getting in the fall spirit!

3. Enjoy your fall treats at a beautiful location

Who can resist going a whole season without caramel apples and apple cider donuts? Instead of just picking them up at the store and snacking on them throughout the week at home, get your favorite treats and bring them to a beautiful location to enjoy them! It creates more of a memory!
