Summer has officially come to an end, but you can still enjoy time outdoors! Grab the family and try some of these fall activities.
Take an afternoon off and hike your favorite trail – or make your own! Hike up the side of a mountain to get some fresh air and enjoy the fall foliage. Bring a pair of binoculars along and watch the wildlife.
Head to a local campground and pitch a tent for a night. Enjoy the fall weather and get some fresh air! Pack up the family and make a weekend out of it.
Biking is a great way to get active in the fall! Head to a local park or trail and enjoy the weather. Ride with a friend and pack a healthy snack for when you reach the top!
Check out your local farmer’s market or head to the orchard to pick your own apples, pumpkins, and other seasonal edibles.
Festivals are a great way to get the whole family active and outdoors. Meet up with a friend and engage in fun activities that celebrate fall, like corn mazes and hay rides, but be sure to follow CDC guidelines on how to stay safe while doing outdoor activities with others
With the leaves falling off the trees, you have plenty of work ahead of you! Raking can be a great upper body workout to keep you toned during the fall season. Rake leaves into one large pile – and let the kids jump in it! Remember to warm up with a few stretches before you begin working. Your muscles will thank you for it. Start with a short walk to loosen the muscles, followed by a 5 to 10 minute stretching session. This will help prevent injury to your back, legs, arms, shoulders and neck.
You don’t have to spend the season watching football on the couch – head outside with the family to toss a ball around after dinner! See who can make the most touchdowns and get in a fun workout at the same time!
Don’t let the weather keep you inside all day! Grab a jacket and head outside to stay active during the fall season.
