Are you ready for the fall season? Here are 10 fall activities you can do with family & friends this year!

  1. Go to a farmer’s market: usually open during weekend mornings, the farmer’s market is a great place for you to go with family or friends to get local and fresh produce. Look for pumpkins, squash, apples, and other delicious fall fruits and vegetables.

5. Go on a hike: get your daily exercise while enjoying the crisp fall air. If you are heading to a county/state/national park, be sure to check if it is affected by COVID-19 closures.

8. Host a movie night or take a trip to your local drive-in theater: drive-in theaters will allow you to socially distance while still enjoying a good movie!
