Fall Bucket List: 50+ Autumn Activity Ideas

Hi everyone! Today I’m going to share my fall bucket list ideas for Fall 2021. This list is in no particular order and features some of my favorite fall activities to do whether it’s the first or last day of Autumn.

It may still be Summer as I’m posting this, but in the next couple of weeks in the Northern Hemisphere, it’s gonna get cold and fast. It’ll be the first day of Autumn before you know it! This is a great way to get prepared for the new season so grab a warm drink, an apple cider donut, throw on a sweater and get comfy, because it’s almost Fall!

That should be enough to keep you busy! Do like fall bucket lists? Do you want to see more of these? I don’t follow and check off a bucket list, but I like to pluck a couple ideas off these lists for an activity for the day.

What are some of your traditions to do around the Autumn season? Apple picking, baking, pumpkin picking and planting a fall garden have to be my favorite ideas! I’ve never tried a fall garden, but I’m trying for the first time this year. I always like to bake any time of the year, but there’s something special about baking in the chilly Autumn season.

Finally, let me know if Fall is your favorite season! I know the season has become increasingly popular over the years, but I’ve always loved fall growing up because my birthday’s in it. Now, I just enjoy wearing sweaters and drinking warm drinks.
