The Leaves are Falling: 3 Must Do Fall Activities

Personally, autumn is my favorite season for a number of reasons. Bright hues of scarlet, apricot, and gold adorn the trees and the cool breeze allows me to unpack some of my favorite wardrobe pieces. It also lends itself to serving up some of my favorite outdoor activities.  Check out these 3 outdoor fall activities with a loved one to make the most of a changing of the season.

Visit a pumpkin patch or apple orchard- Find a local farm and make a day trip of it.  You will be supporting your local farmers, leaving the hustle and bustle of the city, and selecting your own wonderful produce.  Furthermore, you are then able to take your pick home and try your hand at apple or pumpkin pie.  Find a local farm like Jim's Pumpkin Farm in Germantown, which offers hayrides to their pumpkin patch as well as a corn maze and Stuff-Your-Own scarecrow.  Once you get the pumpkins home and hollowed out, be sure to check out last week's blog on making delicious pumpkin seeds!

 

Attend and outdoor yoga class-  Outdoor classes in the summer may leave us feeling sweaty, sticky and disgusting.  As the thermometer drops, it offers us yogis the perfect opportunity for comfortable outdoor yoga.  Along with feeling comfort, outdoor yoga also allows us the opportunity to breathe fresh air and to connect with ourselves through nature.  Scour your local newspaper's activities section or head over to the Craigslist event's page to find a class in your area.  Check out Milwaukee Area Parks for some options that are still happening this fall. Although many outdoor classes concluded at the end of August, you may be lucky enough to enjoy an outdoor class in your area through the end of October.

 

Go for a hike of bike ride-  There is no better way to soak up the Beautiful colors of the season than a hike or bike ride.  Many times the highest viewpoints in your area are also county or state parks, lending themselves perfectly to those activities.  Getting to these spots is going to require some physical activity, but if you time the season just right, it will be jaw-dropping views.  If you happen to be in the Milwaukee area, check out the Scenic Tower at Holy Hill in Hubertus, WI. A challenging stair climb leads to perhaps the most beautiful view of the area, with Lake Michigan, the city of Milwaukee and a rainbow of fall foliage.

Love + light,
