The fall season is here, and that means rambling walks in the woods, festive football games, and pumpkin-spiced everything! If you’re looking for ways to celebrate the season, read on for some fun fall ideas while you’re on assignment.
With the cooler temps and colorful leaves, fall is the perfect time of year for outdoor adventure. And what better way to immerse yourself in the sights and textures of fall than going on a hike in the woods? Depending on where you are on assignment, you could be setting yourself up for some spectacular, Instagram-worthy views and soothing mindfulness exercises.
Nothing says fall like picking apples at a nearby farm. Even better, once you’ve picked your fill of apples, you can take your stash home and use it in a myriad of ways, from baking apple pies (yum) to making apple butter (double yum). Plus, all that home cooking is sure to bring the sweet smell of autumn right into your home!
No fall season is complete without a trip to the local pumpkin patch. Take a few friends or co-workers with you and make it a fun, group outing. Don’t have room for a large pumpkin in your temporary home? That’s OK — lots of pumpkin patches also offer smaller, colorful gourds as an alternative. And they’re sure to look attractive as the centerpiece to your new fall home décor.
Go, team! Come fall, football fans everywhere are rejoicing. Whether it’s a game for the NFL, the NCAA, or just the local high school team, you can join in on this exciting sports season too. Bundle up for the outdoor weather or get comfy on your couch as you cheer on the home team to victory!
Don’t forget to feast on the harvest season’s most tasty food and drinks. Sip on crisp apple cider, savor that pumpkin-spiced latte or enjoy a glass of red wine as you sit around a campfire. Cool fall evenings also invite hearty meal choices— savory beef stew, creamy mashed potatoes, and roasted butternut squash are some of the all-stars in the fall food lineup. Then for dessert, there’s classic pumpkin pie, spiced pears with ice cream, and cinnamon apple cheesecake, just to name a few.
