Just because summer is on its way out doesn’t mean that you have to cut the time you spend in the great outdoors short. 

In fact, some people spend more time outside during the fall than in the summer because the weather is more tolerable. 

If you don’t know how to take advantage of this nice weather before it gets too cold, you’ll want to keep reading our guide on the best outdoor activities you can do in the fall.

Go On a Daily Run

Now that the weather is getting cooler, it’s time to get serious about your runs. You won’t have to worry about sweating to death in the summer heat. 

Make sure you have proper clothing so you don’t get too cold; however, your workout should keep you warm. If you’re starting to feel chilly, you can use that as a sign that you’re not putting enough effort into the run.

Another reason you should try for a daily run is that this is your last opportunity before winter starts. Sure, you can still go to the gym or get proper clothing to continue running outside in the freezing weather. 

However, running on a treadmill isn’t quite the same, and the ice outdoors will make running dangerous.

Hold a Weekend Cookout

Before it gets too cold out, cookouts are a perfect way to spend time outside with family and friends. Nothing beats good food with those you care about while you take in the autumn weather. 

Plus, it’s too good to pass up on the smell of burgers in the crisp air.

Try Out Hunting

If you’ve ever wanted to get into hunting, now is the best time. Fall is prime deer season, as well as a bunch of other animals. Of course, you should check your local laws and regulations, but most forms of the game are in open season during the next few months.

If you plan on hunting with a firearm and you’ve never owned one before, all we ask is that you fully consider the purchase before going through with it. Buying a gun is a big responsibility that too many people make haphazardly.

Plan a Family Trip

Weekend trips with the fam are one of the best outdoor activities you can do in the fall. You can go anywhere and do anything as long as it’s not too far from home since you all have work and school on Monday. 

If your kids are old enough, a camping or hiking trip is a lot of fun and a decent workout for everyone involved.

If they’re younger, taking a trip to your local apple orchard or pumpkin patch is a lot of fun as well. There are plenty of activities for the kids, such as corn mazes and wagon rides, and a lot of good food for you to buy and bring home for later. 

It’s an all-around blast for the whole family.
