21 Awesome Autumn Activities

Fall is finally here!

The leaves change color, the days get colder and wetter, and there's pumpkin everywhere. It doesn't take much to get into the spirit of the season and want to do a million things, even if they're a little cliche. Something about fall makes us feel like kids again; the red-orange-yellow color scheme of elementary school crafts, sweet treats, and Halloween decorations easily fill us with nostalgia.

Just because you're an adult doesn't mean you have to act like one. Fall is the perfect season to indulge yourself and take part in some of your favorite childhood pastimes, like carving pumpkins and jumping in piles of leaves. It's also the perfect season for horror movies and Oktoberfest, so you can still feel your age.

Check out these 21 fall activities—do all of them for the ultimate autumn experience!
