Fall 2022 Bucket List Ideas

I don’t have a favorite season, but I do enjoy fall and fall activities! Here’s a list of fall activties you can do with your family, friends, or even by yourself. I tried to include different price ranges and ideas. Not going to lie, it’s a little tough thinking about fall when it’s 100 degrees outside. I live in California and we are currently experiencing a heatwave. It’s been hotter this month so far than it was in August.

  1. Make or buy caramel apples
  2. Go to a theme park, I’ll be visiting Knott’s Berry Farm’s Spooky Farm and Universal Studios Hollywood with my daughter and family
  3. Bake pumpkin cheesecake, bread, or pie
  4. Go apple picking
  5. Visit a pumpkin patch
  6. Go on a hayride
  7. Have a movie night and watch spooky and Halloween movies
  8. Bake an apple pie
  9. Drink a pumpkin spice flavored drink
  10. Try pumpkin spice and other seasonal goodies from Trader Joe’s, Aldi, or Sprouts
  11. Run a race, the weather is perfect for running. I’ll be doing a 5k, 10k, and a half marathon next month
  12. Go trick or treating
  13. Make a fun or spooky Halloween costume
  14. Eat candy corn
  15. Visit a haunted house
  16. Throw a Halloween party
  17. Carve a pumpkin
  18. Bake spooky Halloween cookies and cupcakes

  26. Make soup for the family
  27. Volunteer at a food bank
  28. Donate sweaters and warm clothing you no longer use
  29. Take fall family pictures

  31. Have a bonfire
  32. Make a pot of chili
  33. Go stargazing

Day and Weekend Trips To Do in 2022

Earlier this year, I went to Portland, Oregon and Seattle, Washington. I went there for a week to celebrate my daughter’s 3rd birthday and my birthday ( our birthdays are a week apart). Two of my sisters also went along. That was our big trip for the year. I would love to do some more travelling, but I think this year I plan to do smaller trips. The trips I am planning will mostly be one day and weekend trips, as well as places we can vist for a few hours. Here are a few places I would love to visit with my family and my daughter. Most of these places are 2-3 hours away from us here in California. Only out of state place on my list is Las Vegas.

  1. Adventure City
  2. Oceanside
  3. Cabazon Dinosaurs
  4. Calico Ghost Town
  5. Ojai
  6. San Diego Zoo
  7. San Diego Safari Park
  8. Sesame Street Place
  9. Solvang
  10. Ostrichland
  11. Manzanar
  12. Las Vegas
