5 Ways to Spend Time Outside: Fall Edition

5 Ways to Spend More Time Outside Fall Edition Blog Header

Fall is the perfect season to spend time outside! Your body is growing tired of the summer heat, but you're still not quite ready for the first winter frost. We have suggestions for activities that’ll be sure to bring a smile to your face!

Watch the Stars – Have you seen that picture-perfect truck bed with pillows, blankets, and tons of snacks? While we might not ALL have that set up, grabbing a quilt and sitting out at a park is just as magical. Lay back and try to find constellations like the Little and Big Dippers!

Hike a New Trail – Since hiking will no longer leave you dripping in sweat after only 5 minutes, exploring new trails is ideal for this season. Our list of trails to bike in Say states has recommendations that you can enjoy on a bike or on foot!

Corn Maze – We know being in the Midwest means there’s no shortage of cornfields turned corn mazes! Navigating your way through towering corn stalks is both perfect for a family outing or a date night. Everybody wins (assuming you make it to the end of the maze)!

Grab a Seasonal Beverage – Lucky for you, we compiled our team’s favorite fall treats and on that list are seasonal beverages you must try! From a Pumpkin White Mocha from Caribou Coffee to homemade apple cider, these drinks are sure to leave you feeling warm and fuzzy.

Carve a Pumpkin – If you haven’t ever carved a pumpkin, this fall is your time to shine! You can go for the easy way, the long-lasting way, or even the more complicated and extra spooky way. The best part about pumpkin carving is that it’s your very own creation -- the more unique the better!

Be sure to check each of these off your fall bucket list this year and share your favorites with #sayadventures
