You’ll get onto the back and they’ll take you for a long ride around whatever area you were picked up in. Sometimes, they’ll go through back roads that are full of cool stuff that has been set up for your enjoyment.
Apple picking is an awesome fall activity to participate in. This is one that the kids are going to love! When we were kids, we would go apple picking every fall. It’s always a blast for the whole family.
When you go apple picking at an orchard, you literally just pick apples right from the tree. There are different kinds of apples to pick from, and most places will have shops set up around them that sell apples, apple cider and apple cider doughnuts!
Pumpkin picking is another fun fall activity that is similar to apple picking but with pumpkins.

There are a lot of areas that are set up specifically for scavenger hinting for most celebrated holidays. Especially during the fall!
A road trip might be just what you need this fall season. Drive down the highways and take in the scenery all around you as the world slowly changes.
Feel and hear the familiar hum coming from the engine bay and let the wind fly over your face.
Of course, we can’t forget to include camping! Find a scenic spot, and set up camp for a couple of days. Camping is always a fun and very relaxing experience.
Set up a fire pit or dutch oven and cook up some good camping meals. It’s always delicious when you cook over a campfire and at the end of the day, you can roast marshmallows!
