1. The Great Pumpkin: Visit a local pumpkin patch (or side-of-the-road produce stand) and choose the biggest and most perfect pumpkin.
2. Pick Them Yourself: Go apple picking at a local orchard. Did you know apples grow in more than 25 states?
3. Jack-O-Lantern: Whether you use a real pumpkin or the foam variety, carve a pumpkin for Halloween. You probably already own more pumpkin carving tools than you realize.
4. Get Seedy: Do not throw away the seeds you pulled out of the pumpkin. Toast pumpkin seeds in the oven for a tasty and delicious fall snack.
5. Fresh Air: Open your windows and enjoy the crisp air … not to mention your lower utility bills.
6. Spooky! Seek out a nearby haunted house and visit with a group of friends. Do you dare to be in the back of the pack?

7. Leaf Collecting: Take a walk in a park and pick up leaves in as many colors and varieties as you can find. Bonus points for stomping through the crunchy leaves.

9. Decorate: Hang a pretty fall wreath on your front door for a touch of autumn every time you come home.
10. Betty Crocker: Bake a pie from scratch or from the freezer department of the grocery store. Either way, your home will smell delicious!

12. Healthy Shopping: Visit your local farmers market and stock up on local produce and baked goods.
13. Be A-maze-d: Conquer a corn maze without cheating!
14. Go Team! Tailgate at a local sporting event whether you like sports or not. The party is the best part anyway.
15. Cookoff Time: Perfect your chili recipe and challenge your friends to a chili cookoff.
