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
  19. Buy some fall scented candles and soaps
  20. Have a picnic at the park
  21. Tell scary stories
  22. Make a scarecrow
  23. Visit a zoo
  24. Take a nature hike
  25. Go camping
  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
  30. Bob for apples
  31. Have a bonfire
  32. Make a pot of chili
  33. Go stargazing
  34. Have a Harry Potter movie marathon

2022 Bucket List and Goals

I know I am not alone in feeling this way, but am so bummed out about not reaching most of my goals from 2020 and 2021. I am hoping to achieve more goals this year and I think one way to do that is by not setting unrealistic goals like i did in the past.

2020 Goals and Bucket List Recap

This year I had so many goals and things on my bucket list. Then 2020 happened. It was so disappointing to look back and see that I only accomplished 2 out of 17 things. Of course, I am not to blame for not accomplishing most of them. Many of the things that I had on my list were things that I couldn’t o because they were cancelled thanks to this global pandemic and our stay at home orders here in California. Here is my list of 17 things I had hoped to do in 2020.

I only accomplished #12 and #16
