Fall is for apple cider, tailgates and bonfires. It’s for bonding with friends and family and enjoying walks under orange toned trees with your neighbors. Here are some sweater weather activities that anyone can enjoy this fall.

  • Pumpkin Pick at your Local Farm 

Let the competition to find the best pumpkin commence. Roam through pumpkin fields and pick fresh produce at Meadows Farms Nursery on Jumpers Hill or at Diehl’s Produce. Decorating or carving pumpkins is always a fun activity afterward. 

  • Go to a Haunted House

Everyone knows about Bennett’s Curse and Field of Screams for a great haunted house experience, but the Nevermore Haunt and Laurel’s House of Horror are also great options for a spooky night out. Admission prices to their haunted houses are $25. 

  • Go to Fall Festivals

Kinder Farm Park is hosting its annual Fall Harvest Festival on October 12 from 10-4 and will have hayrides, farm animals and face painting. Enjoy more than 50 attractions and indulge in caramel apples at the Fall Fun Festival at Gavers Farm through November 3. 

  • Explore DC

Washington, DC hosts a plethora of free fall activities, and it’s the perfect time to explore its scenic and scary attractions. Climb the Exorcist stairs in historic Georgetown, visit the U.S. National Arboretum, bike the George Washington Memorial Parkway, and take a free ghost tour with DC by Foot (reservation required). 

  • Have a bonfire and indulge in s’ mores

Invite your neighbors, friends, and close family over to enjoy s’ mores beside a cozy fire. Tell stories and laugh at corny jokes while sipping on hot chocolate. 

  • Have a Horror Movie Binge-Fest with your friends

Grab some blankets, pillows, popcorn and your closest friends to watch the Halloween classics. Better yet, purchase a projector and watch outside while giving out candy on Halloween.

  • Bake some Fall Delights

Fall is an excuse for indulging in sweet treats, from pies to soups and cookies to muffins. Try that traditional apple pie or pumpkin muffin recipe that your grandma passed down, or discover a new recipe online. 

  • Volunteer at a Soup Kitchen

Give back to the community and spend some Saturdays preparing hot soup and meals for those who need the most comfortable this fall. For more impact, grab some friends or family members to spread love and compassion. 

  • Take a nature walk

As the weather becomes chilly, throw on a scarf, boot up, and take out the heavier coats for walks along scenic trails such as the Billy Goat Trail in DC, Patapsco State Park and Centennial Park in Ellicott City. 

  •  Have an Autumn Photoshoot 

If you have a knack for photography or just want to try, it’s the perfect time to get the perfect shot of your friends or family. It’s always fun to dress up and try new poses during a time of change and colors of maroon and crimson.
