Different seasons bring different traditions. Experience fall fully this year by checking things off our Fall Bucket List. There’s so much to do, it was nearly impossible to narrow it down to just a few things!
Scenic drives are a great way to take in the kaleidoscope of colors fall has to offer, especially in Utah. Most routes can be taken in a family car and are perfect for a fun afternoon with the family. Check out our previous blog post to see our top five favorites!
Fall wouldn’t be complete without the one of the most important Halloween traditions, pumpkin carving! Do it freehand or with a stencil, then compete with others to get the whole family involved. This easy, well-known tradition can be fun for the whole family and provides fall décor unique to your family and friends. Pro tip: toast the pumpkin’s seeds in the oven at [temp] for [time] minutes with a little bit of salt for a festive snack.
Apple picking is a popular, family-fun activity to do in Utah and there are many places to go to find this famous fall fruit. With harvests ranging from late August to late October, there’s still time to hit the orchards and cross this must-do activity off your fall bucket list. Once picked, enjoy your apples and make apple sauce, apple pie, apple crisp and so much more!
Have a Bonfire with Friends & Family
Enjoy the last few months of the outdoors before cold weather hits and have a bonfire with friends and family! Roast marshmallows, tell stories, and make memories by the fire this season. Pro Tip: Use different chocolate candies instead of plain chocolate squares when making s’mores to add variety and creativity to your smokey snacks.
Check out Local Festivals
Fall time is the most popular time of the year for festivals, fairs and last-minute fun. Check out local festivals and fairs near you, and plan time to enjoy them with friends and family.
