So many of my friends look forward to summer. They love the hot temperatures here in the south accompanied by long pool days. I enjoy summer because I love the extra time with the kids and the more lenient schedules, but my favorite season by far is fall (also known by me as sweater weather!). In autumn, the temperatures are cooler and these pesky bugs are gone, making outdoor time much more enjoyable. While I find my most active outdoor time to be the fall, I know that not everyone feels that way. If you are struggling with ideas on how to get in quality outdoor times combined with cooler temps, here are 5 Outdoor Activities to Stay Active in the Fall.
Stay hydrated during outdoor activities with Honest® Tea. Honest® Tea, available in glass or plastic/PET bottles is organic, fair trade, and comes in several tasty flavors. Find them at a local Kroger store near you.
#1 Corn maze – A corn maze is fun for kids and adults alike. Research corn maze activities in your area. Some in my area are huge and take a while to complete, equaling to plenty of exercise and fresh air. If in a large group or with friends, increase the heart rate more by having a race to the finish line!
#2 Pumpkin patch – Wandering around a pumpkin patch is a fun fall activity. For maximum exercise, skip the hayride to the patch and enjoy the walk in the crisp autumn air.
#3 Fall hiking – Hiking in the summer can be brutal (unless there’s a fun river to splash in at the end of the trail!). Fall is the perfect time to experience those trails that you have been saving for that perfect day.
#4 Apple picking – Do you live near an apple orchard? We have several that are an hour or less away in our area. Head to pick your own apples. It is great exercise, and you are left with a healthy treat to take home for later.
#5 Raking leaves/outdoor work – Outdoor work is more fun as a family, right? Kids enjoy raking leaves and, of course, jumping in them afterwards. Autumn is a great time to complete any outdoor work that you may have been putting off until cooler temps. Maybe plan an afternoon of prepping your yard for winter followed by a visit to the corn maze afterwards for an extra outdoorsy day!
Pomegranate Blue Flavored Blue Tea is my favorite Honest® Tea variety. The plastic/PET bottles are great for throwing in my pack for outdoor activities while the glass ones are perfect for enjoying on the front porch at home.
September is National Organic Month, and Kroger stores are celebrating with special pricing on PET Honest® Tea bottles (4 for $5) until 10/24/18. Find them at your local Kroger or Kroger banner store!
