20 things to do this fall

Happy October!! Like pretty much everyone and their mother, I am beyond excited that October is finally here. Fall is just the best season, and October is probably my favorite month of the year. I mean, with not one but two holidays (Canadian Thanksgiving & Halloween) plus the fall weather and activities; it really just makes for an amazing month.

To me, October 1st is the true start of fall, so today I wanted to share 20 things to do this fall. Every season I like to create a ‘bucket list’ of things I want to do during the season, so these things are the activities that make up my bucket list this year.

things to do this fall

Fall Bucket List:


1. Visit a Pumpkin Patch (√):

As you can tell, this one I checked off my list already! Alex and I went to a pumpkin patch on Saturday. We went to a location I absolutely love Taves Farm in Abbotsford, BC. They’ve got pumpkin picking, apple picking, a corn maze and a cute general store.

2. Go Apple Picking (√):

Checked this one off at the same time! I picked a bunch of apples to make apple chips and an apple pie later this week.

3. Host a Fall Party:

Use the changing season as an excuse to get some friends together! Alex and I are hosting a fall party next weekend and I can’t wait.

4. Try a New Fall Cocktail Recipe:

There are so many great cocktails out there, I definitely want to try making one. My current front runners are this Bourbon Apple Cider & this Caramel Apple Moscow Mule.

5. Try a New Fall Baked Good Recipe:

I’ve seen so many delicious pumpkin and maple goodies on Pinterest. Baking something inspired by fall is a great way to get into the fall spirit.

6. Binge Watch Season 3 of The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina:

The new season of Sabrina comes out October 11th!! So excited for it.

7. Read a New Book:

Find a new fiction book and curl up; this is the perfect season for it. I just ordered Margaret Atwood’s new one, The Testaments, and can’t wait to read it.

8. Visit a Fall Farmer’s Market


9. Donate Clothing to Support a Good Cause:

You’re likely switching out your spring/summer and fall/winter wardrobe right now, and this is the perfect time to donate your gently used clothing. Do some research into organizations in your area that may re-sell clothing in support of a good cause. Here in Vancouver there is My Sister’s Closet, which takes clothing donations for their consignment store. All proceeds help fund The ‘Battered Women’s Support Services’ initiative.

10. Carve a Pumpkin


11. Spend a Lazy Sunday Morning Drinking Apple Cider & Eating Pumpkin Waffles


12. Go For a Fall Hike in the Forest


13. Decorate for Fall


14. Have a Bonfire & Make Smores


15. Make a List of Things To Be Thankful For:

This time of year it’s great to sit down and spend an hour or tea just thinking about the things you have to be thankful for. I find it really helpful to write out a list of things I’m grateful for.

16. Have a “Movie Night In” complete with candy & a blanket fort


17. Fall Wardrobe Refresh – Buy 1 pair of boots, 2 cozy sweaters & 1 fall coat


18. Try a New Outdoor Activity:

There are so many great outdoor activities in fall that as someone who hates being cold, I’ve chickened out of trying. I’m determined to try some random outdoor activity. I’m currently thinking of trying axe throwing!

19. Learn a Family Thanksgiving Recipe


20. Go to a Concert!

That’s it! What do you think of my list?! What else is on your bucket list!?

Outfit Details: sweater // jeans // hat

    • Lee says:

      Thank you! and i know, I can’t wait!! I’ve been re-watching it from the beginning (my boyfriend hadn’t watched it so we’re watching it together from the start) and it’s making me even more excited for the new season!

  19. Kristina says:

    Ahh decorating for fall is my favorite but I’m right in the middle of moving to a new house so we didn’t decorate this year. I’ll just have to make up for it for Christmas!

    • Lee says:

      Aw that sucks, but I love the attitude of making up for it at Christmas! Christmas decor is the best. I hope the move goes smoothly for you, I know how stressful and exhausting moving can be!

  20. It’s so hard in Chicago! It’s fall weather part of the day and the other part it’s not! So confusing.
    I love this list and am trying to do a few of these as well. I need to make some fall cocktails, I think they are my favorite, especially with the darker liquors!
