2 | Cast a Line
Fall is a great time to go fishing. With cooler water temperatures, the variety is always interesting and exciting. Bass, for instance, are particularly hungry in the fall, and some avid anglers believe bass gorge themselves to prepare for the winter. Others theorize the increase in action is because of the seasonal increase in baitfish. Whatever the reason, fall fishing is always a blast. Add vibrant scenery and comfortably cool weather to the mix, and it’s any angler’s dream.
Fall’s also a great time of year to stock up on gear, as many shops offer fall promotions and clearance sales. Stock up on flies, grab that rod you’ve been eyeing, and snag an extra pair of polarized sunglasses.
3 | Explore a Ski Town or Resort
Hitting up a swanky resort or bustling ski town during the off-season is a great way to enjoy everything a ski area has to offer without the crowds. Sure, you won’t get to hit the slopes, but many resorts run the lifts for some spectacular views. You can also snag some killer deals at the local shops as they clear out their inventory to make room for the coming season’s trends.
4 | Visit a Local Farm
Farms in the fall are always a great time with pumpkin harvests, corn mazes, hay rides, and other autumn traditions. Many farms host farm-to-table feasts, which are not only delicious but are also a fun way to meet new people, support the little guy, and connect with your community.
5 | Take a Brewery Tour
Whether you’re bundled up and biking or have bribed a friend to be the D.D., fall brewery tours are pretty much the best. With pumpkin ales and other great seasonals on tap, visiting and supporting local breweries while enjoying one of the best beverages on Earth is always a good time.
