So, break out your cozy sweaters and cute boots, and partake in some activities that are guaranteed to produce joy. Here are six activities to add to your bucket list.

What better way to kick off the Fall season than with a one last roadtrip? Grab a map, and plot out all the key spots to stop along your route (be sure to keep your end destination in mind so you don’t get lost!). Marvel at the changing foliage, and breathe in that crisp air.

2. Apple Picking with Friends

While this activity may seem a bit “basic” to some, it is a wholesome one. Grab some of your closest pals, and head on down to your local orchard. To make things even more exciting, turn it into a competition to see who can pick the most apples in the shortest amount of time!

3. Have A Movie Marathon

Because it’s getting chilly, you may want to stay indoors: and, that’s perfectly fine! A fun night in requires a marathon of your favorite flicks, and Netflix has a variety of genres for every viewer. So, there should be no fighting for the remote. Unless of course, you are watching alone. In that case, the TV is your oyster. 

4. Costume-Making Party

You’re never too old to dress up for Halloween, and it’s never too soon to get a headstart on planning your costume. Take things one step further, and make your costume with friends! That way, you are sure to stand out from the sea of store bought looks. And, you save a little money to boot.

5. Tackle An Escape Room

If you dare to enter the daunting world of escape rooms, you are sure to have an exciting and invigorating experience. This is also one of the best team building activities you can do, and might just prove itself invaluable when it comes time for those Fall semester projects. 

6. Plan A Surprise Visit

Your best friend in the whole wide world just moved away for college, and you cannot stand to be apart any longer. So, you decide to surprise him/her with a visit. To keep them on their toes with anticipation, send them a custom gift filled with subtle (or not so subtle) hints of your arrival.


These are just some ideas of what you can do, but the possibilities are endless. So long as you are having a good time, making memories with friends and family, that is all that truly matters.
