This fall bucket list is full of amazing fall activities to enjoy the beautiful weather and fall season! Tons of great things to do in the fall that are great for families or social distance friendly for larger groups!
Fall is by far my favorite season. The weather is perfect, the color of the leaves is beautiful, and my birthday is in the fall. And it’s the perfect time to host one of these fall parties.
Fall also brings with it the return to routines, cooking weeknight dinners, sports, and other things that fill our schedules.
Honestly, sometimes the beauty of fall gets missed in the crazy schedules. So I’ve put together this fun fall bucket list (kind of like this summer bucket list) full of things to do in the fall to take advantage of the beautiful season!
Plus, so many of these things are great for right now because you can do with them with your immediate family or social distanced with friends!
