How I Get To Experience Fall In Florida

Fall is here. For many, it means the cold weather, leaves changing, and the crisp fall air. But in Florida, that's definitely not the case!

As someone who originally grew up in the Northeastern US, I was used to the typical changes in the seasons for the weather and aesthetic scenery to change. But when I went to Florida for school and experienced my first fall season and Halloween, the meaning of fall changed.

So how does someone who lives in Florida experience the fall season? Here are some ways I experience fall in Florida:

Fall Festivals

One great thing about Florida is that they are all about the community and events. There are a lot of fall festivals that go on from small farmers markets to buy pumpkins and ride on a tractor like you are riding around a pumpkin patch and there are also large events like the annual Halloween Horror Night at Universal Studios in Orlando if you are more into the scary Halloween side of things. So in the evenings when the humidity goes down a little and it's dark and you can't see all the green foliage that has definitely not changed colors for fall, it definitely brings fall vibes.

Food and Drinks

In addition to the festivals, one great way to experience fall is through food and drinks. You can bake up some pumpkin seeds, made your favorite apple cider, or cook of a savory pie. Or just go to Starbucks and get a pumpkin spice latte if you are lazy too, I don't judge.

Watching Halloween Movies

Wherever you are, there is Netflix and of course Freeform's 31 Nights of Halloween so there is a lot of great movies and shows that will bring out the fall spirit in everyone!

Decorating My Apartment

A great way to celebrate a new season in Florida I have come to know is to decorate! This helps visualize the season and makes your house look more festive as well! Mini pumpkins and Halloween signs really do the trick!

Carving Pumpkins

Last but not least, you can still carve pumpkins! Isn't that the most fall thing there is to do? While they might be shipping in all the pumpkins to Florida, anyone in Florida can still experience this classic fall activity with friends and family.

While Florida might not seem like a place where fall gets celebrated as much, it might just be the opposite! There is a ton of fun ways to celebrate the change in seasons even when it still feels like summer all year long!

20 Traditional Hispanic Recipes To Feast On In Honor Of Hispanic Heritage Month

Like many of my wanderlust-ridden friends and family, I'll travel anywhere for the promise of good food. I once went to Thailand in pursuit of traditional massaman curry and Spain for authentic patatas bravas — neither of which let me down.

What usually ends up being the biggest letdown is coming home to miss the traditional, local cuisine. It may not have quite the same ambiance, but trying to cook authentic dishes at home can increase appreciation for the craft and culture behind them.

Launched by Iranian journalist Masih Alinejad in 2014, My Stealthy Freedom is a commendable campaign that shows women going against the strict hijab restrictions in Iran. This movement has recently gained a lot of momentum on their Facebook page and is currently even gaining support from tourists in Iran. Ms. Alinejad shares photos of men in hijabs and women inside Iran who have taken part in a moment of 'stealthy freedom' by removing their hijabs to the outside world.

National Coffee Day falls on September 29, a fact that I don't think I'll ever forget, even though I didn't even know it was a "holiday" until just recently. Maybe that's because my love for coffee is still a recent development, or maybe I just don't keep up enough with the times, but either way, I can't think of any better time to recount why we all probably love it so much.
