The sun is a little sleepier, the air a bit crisper, and the leaves are full of colourful red and yellow hues. To help get in the spirit of cozy sweaters and pumpkin flavoured everything, we’ve rounded up some of the best seasonal to-do’s for you to enjoy this fall.
1. Get Comfy
Cozy up for a while by the big windows inside Café Voltaire and dig into your next read while sipping on one of the café’s delicious hot drinks or enjoying a fall-themed sweet treat. Need a suggestion? Word on the street is the seasonal pumpkin-spiced latte has returned for the rest of 2019.
2. Fall Festivities
On October 14, enjoy the fresh fall air at Huble Homestead during a good old pioneer Thanksgiving. Partake in the old-fashioned activity stations and see if you can create the scariest scarecrow or bob for apples. Wrap up the festivities by snuggling up by the warm bonfire with a hot mug of cider and roast some marshmallows.
3. Meander Through Cottonwood Park
Take the bikes out for a ride or explore the countless trails around Cottonwood Island Nature Park by foot while you try to find all the hidden treecarvings. During late September the forest comes alive in a beautiful sky of yellow and red, so don’t forget to take your camera with you for some candid photos along the riverbanks.
4. Go Camping
You’ll need to bundle up more, and pack heavier gear but shoulder season camping trips can be an absolute gem at this time of year. The crowds are mostly gone, the hiking trails are waiting for you and the lake’s reflection of autumn colours can be an absolute stunner while you cruise around the water during an afternoon paddle.
5. Harvest Time
Food is a plenty, and the local Farmer’s Markets are overflowing with the best produce you can buy. Head down together as a family to pick up your local meats, veggies and staples for your next dinner feast and enjoy sampling the local goodies and live music while you take in the bustling atmosphere.
