Fun fall inspired activities

There is a crisp feeling in the air and the leaves changing colors. Fall has arrived. Fall is my favorite season here in New England. 

I love the fall foliage, watching the leaves change their color and of course the weather. It’s not too cold, and it’s not too humid. 

I like to find cheap things to do during this lovely season. Whether it be with a significant other or just with some friends, these top five cheap fun fall inspired activities will get students in the autumn mood.

One of my all-time favorite things to do in the fall is apple and pumpkin picking. 

Grab some apples or a pumpkin and this date will sure be a good one. I suggest going to Cider Hill Farm in Amesbury, Mass. 

They have acres of land including tons of trees to pick apples from, pumpkins to grab, a corn maze, hay rides and a country store with delicious caramel apples and cider doughnuts to die for.

Each year my family and I pick a pumpkin to carve for Halloween. This is a great activity to not only do with your family but also a group of friends and a significant other. 

This is also a great activity for you art lovers. Get funky with your pumpkin and make it your own.

Grab a bunch of your friends and sit by the fire making smores and roasting marshmallows. 

Grab some beers or some apple cider and sit back and relax either in your backyard or my favorite at the beach. 

This activity is best done with more people, it makes it so much more fun.

Some beaches have fire pits and allow bonfires. Get more into the Halloween mood and tell ghost stories around the fire.

 Each year I look forward to the ABC family specials that include some of my favorite Halloween themed movies which include, Casper, The Halloweentown series, and my all-time favorite, Hocus Pocus. 

For you horror lovers you can be a little more daring than I am and spend some quality time with Freddy and Jason.

My weakness each fall season is when all of my favorite pumpkin sweets come back to life.

 Every Sunday I go to Dunkins and get my pumpkin doughnut and pumpkin flavored coffee. 

This activity is a great thing to do with your significant other. 

Also, try new baking recipes that include pumpkin in them. The Food Network channel always features new pumpkin flavored recipes to get your sweet tooth going.   

I hope you enjoyed these top 5 cheap fun fall activites. Things dont neeed to break your bank to be fun.
