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

  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

  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
