I just got back from an apple harvest festival at a nature park close to our house. I’ve gone every year for the past few years, and even though it’s geared more for children, it’s one of my favorite ways to kick off the fall season. I went with my mom, sister, sister-in-law and niece and spent a few hours just wandering around, eating apple pie and ice cream, going on a horse drawn wagon ride, picking out apples to bring home, and listening to live music. It was a lot of fun, although with temps in the low eighties, it was a bit too warm for my taste. I always find that fall activities are a lot more fun when it’s chilly out! Anyway, with fall right around the corner, I thought it would be fun to put together a bucket list with all the things I’d love to do throughout the season! I always love repeating traditions and finding new things to try as well, so this list will be a mix of both.

Go to an orchard and pick apples

Drink apple cider (did this today!)

Bake pumpkin everything

Drink as many pumpkin spice frappuccinos from Starbucks as possible

Visit a pumpkin patch

Go on a hayride

Attend the Apple Harvest Fest at Retzer Nature Center  (did this today!)

Carve pumpkins

Take my niece trick-or-treating 

Take in the fall colors from the Holy Hill tower

Go on nature walks 

Have a scary movie marathon

Burn fall candles

Go to a haunted house

Have a bonfire

Get lost in a corn maze, and then hopefully find my way out

Hang fall decor throughout the house

Eat pumpkin spice & apple cinnamon EVERYTHING!!!!!!!

I can’t wait for cooler temps, cloudy skies, orange and red trees, and the smell of leaves and pumpkin. I love everything about fall, it is easily my most favorite season. Wisconsin is beautiful in the fall, the colors get so rich and vibrant and the weather gets nice and chilly, perfect for picking apples, drinking a hot pumpkin spice latte, and snuggling up with a warm blanket to watch a scary movie. I’m planning to go apple picking at the orchard tomorrow so keep a lookout for pictures to come!

What are some of your favorite fall traditions? I’d love to hear!
