Often times, a new season means new activities to take up your time. You don’t have to spend a fortune to enjoy yourself. And the best part about all of these fall ones? They’re all-day activities, and you can enjoy them alone, with friends, or even on a date. Take a look at some of these cheap fall activities the next time you want to have fun without draining your bank account.
1. Go to an apple orchard.
Find out where the nearest apple orchard is and get over there stat! Take some time to walk around and pick the finest fruit, then head inside to enjoy some hot cider and tasty treats they may have to offer. (We recommend the Honeycrisp. It may be the most delicious apple ever tasted).
2. Pick some pumpkins.
After you find the biggest and best pumpkin of them all, grab a hot drink and enjoy a hayride. Then when you get home, get creative with your pumpkin. Carve a jack-o-lantern or paint a work of art. Once you’re done, proudly display your new fall décor for everyone to see!
3. Bake some pie.
This is a perfect follow-up to both the apple orchard and the pumpkin patch. Check out Pinterest, or use your favorite family recipe and see what you can whip up–think apple crisp and pumpkin pie. Yum!
4. Have a movie marathon.
Who doesn’t love a night at home under the blankets and in front of the TV? Pop some popcorn, grab a blanket and snuggle up. After any long day (especially a chilly one), endless hours of Ryan Reynolds or Woody Allen just sounds like a great way to go.
5. Go on a hike.
Fall foliage may be one of the most beautiful sights in nature. The colorful leaves are breathtaking, the air is crisp, and you’ll probably see a few animals out preparing for winter. Don’t forget your camera!
6. Clean out your closet.
You’ve heard of spring cleaning? Well, this is the same idea! As the seasons change, it’s a perfect time to de-clutter and reorganize. Go through all your spring/summer stuff and pick out what you didn’t wear. Then you’ll be able to donate all of the stuff you don’t want, so you’ll feel good about cleaning house, too.
7. Have a Bonfire
S’mores! Is there really anything else to say?
