Outdoor Activities for Fall

Untitled design-197.png

When the weather changes from hot summer days to the cool days of fall, it’s the perfect time to seek out ways to get outside and enjoy the day. We’ve gathered some great ideas for outdoor activities for fall. Yes, you can enjoy these excursions anytime of the year, but there’s just no comparison to the Autumn season.

Outdoor Activity Ideas for Fall

Take a walk with your camera - The crisp air, changing foliage, and wildlife preparing for winter make for plenty to see and photograph when you get out and plan a walk along a local trail on a fall day. Whether you bring a field guide for identifying all you encounter, or simply want to get out into the changing environment, enjoying and photographing the highlights of the season is a great idea!

Plan a hike - Seek out your local trails and plan an excursion with friends. Not only will being outdoors in the seasonal air feel great, but hiking is a fantastic way to move ever closer to your fitness goals. Active.com offers some great tips for preparing.

Camping - We think camping is a great idea no matter what time of year it is, but the cooler, dryer weather during the fall means less bugs and less people. Stay warm and comfortable with cold weather hammock gear as suggested by eaglesnestoutfittersinc.com

Fly a kite - The blustery days make for perfect kite flying weather. Farmersalmanac.com suggests making your own from two long sticks, paper and string. Need instructions? We found this great pin for help.

Collect leaves, nuts and foliage - Whether you’re looking to decorate your home with signs of the season, or plan to guide your little ones in festive arts and crafts, it can be fun to collect some autumn color to bring home with you. Need ideas for how to preserve your collection? Redtedart.com offers 6 different ways to keep what you’ve collected looking beautiful. (SIX different ways!)

Fishing - Why not give fishing a try? A relaxing day in the fall sunshine can be even more enjoyable when you sit along the water in the hopes of your first catch. Active.com offers tips for the beginning fisher.

Ready to plan that camping trip? Take advantage of the “off” season and enjoy the outdoors with no crowds and our winter rates.
