Fall is just around the corner—and we know that family football games, cozy afternoons and other seasonal traditions are not far behind! In honor of this upcoming change in season, we’re looking at ten fun ways to enjoy the fall with family by your side.
Spend more time outdoors
In many other spots across the country, the fall season is a precursor to very cold months spent indoors—but not in Florida! While our temperatures start to go down, a wealth of outdoor activities—from neighborhood jogs to enjoying meals outdoors—are made more enjoyable. So embrace the slight change in weather and enjoy it with family by your side!
Enjoy a family staycation
The kids are back to school, so it may not be possible to take a full-length vacation—but you can still enjoy one-of-a-kind trips much closer to home! Take a staycation for one day or over the weekend to a new Florida destination. Whether you keep it coastal or head inland for family fun at the theme parks of Orlando, your trip will be a special one.
Spice up your weekly routine
Fall means getting back into the school season swing of things, but that doesn’t mean you can’t find ways to have fun during the week! Once everyone is situated into their new schedules, try establishing a designated family dine-out night, move night or other fun tradition.
Go camping right at home
To enjoy the cooler (and dryer) weather when it comes, enjoy a camping trip in your own backyard! This is an easy option to try on your next free night, and all you’ll is a tent, sleeping gear, and plenty of fun campfire snacks to go around.
Enjoy fall sports
Find ways to get involved with the sports the fall season is known for, whether that means encouraging your child to enjoy a local city league or enjoying fun family nights at local school sports games.
Deck out your space for fall
One of the most enjoyable aspects of fall—especially if you have an eye for design—is the chance to switch up your home’s look and décor style. You can add touches or orange or purple for an exciting fall-time look and, as we get closer to Halloween, lots of pumpkins, too!
This season is all about the academics, but your child can learn outside of school, too, by spending time at a local children’s museum. Cities big and small across the state have their own unique museums, from children’s learning centers to art museums or ones that focus on local culture. No matter what kind of museum you visit, it’s sure to be an enriching experience for both you and your family.
Enjoy fresh produce
Fall is known as the harvest season, and so many delicious fruits and vegetables are at their peak! So take advantage of this fact and head to your local farmer’s market to pick out deliciously fresh produce you can snack on or cook with in the months ahead.
Try out new family recipes…
This season is the perfect chance for you to whip up favorite family recipes, spend relaxing afternoons baking, or try new dishes altogether. Comfort food classics are king during the fall, so pick dishes that are especially warm, rich and satisfying.
