Peak apple picking usually starts in August and continues to peak through September- but there's still time to squeeze in one last trip to a nerby apple orchard or apple farm during the first half of October.
Whether it's right at a local park or a two-hour drive into the country, look up the best places to see all the gorgeous, vibrant fall foliage
Head to a pumpkin patch with your best friends, your kids, or your S.P. to find the perfect pumpkins for an October-themed doorstep or natural fall decor inside.
Whether it's flat and leisurely or long and rigorous, there's nothing like a good hike through nature surrounded by cool, clean air and fall-touched trees.
Make a day of it: rent bikes, take the train (or rent a car) out of the city, and ride on local roads.
Get some friends, find a haunted house nerby and go nuts.
Look into local fall festivals coming up near you and take some friends, your kids, or a date out for a day of hayrides, pumpkin picking, haunted houses, local food stalls, outdoor entertainment and caramel apples.
A winery or brewery likely won't be quite as crowded in October, plus most places have indoor seating in case the weather's chilly. Otherwise, it's the perfect excuse to wear your cutest fall scarf and ankle boots and enjoy some fresh, local wine and beer with buddies.
