Five Fun Fall Outdoor Activities for the Whole Family!

Big outdoor plans were in the making for our October weekends.

But then the historic SC rain fell the first weekend…and the following Saturday. Call it stir crazy but I had to get out of the house!

Out of this craziness came five ideas for outside fun when the sun returns:


Head to the Farm! Many farms during this season open their doors to visitors for hayrides, the selling of their goods, and instructional opportunities — perfect for kids and adults alike. Just watch where you step. 🙂

Flee to the local Flea Market. You need only ask me once and I’m there. I’m not sure why, as I’m pretty much maxed out on antiques, but I love the idea of finding Mason jars at a bargain or something unusual that prompts a story. One really doesn’t need an excuse to flee, right?

Go to your County Fair. I think I’ve missed this one in our area. Honestly, it’s been years since I’ve gone but nothing said Fall when I was a teenager like a boyfriend wowing the crowd and winning a big stuffed bear! But I digress. County fairs have it all – animals, flowers, rides, cotton candy and funnel cakes (I’ve never had one of these!)

Attend a Football Game. Enough said. 🙂

Enjoy an Outdoor Concert. Wonder what’s going on in your city? Google it! Most city Web sites now have a section just for concerts. Don’t forget to bundle up for Fall’s chilly nights and chairs, if necessary. Or even a better, a mega wool blanket.

Your turn! What have I missed? What’s your favorite Fall outdoor activity? There are so many. Let me hear at least one.
