Cooler weather, colorful leaves, corn mazes, and pumpkin patches are calling your name this season, beckoning both you and the kids to get outdoors, experience the health benefits of walking in nature, go exploring, and find your next adventure!
From the islands of the Florida Keys to mountains of Washington State, there are fall activities everywhere, most happening in the great outdoors. With the kids being back in school, stuck indoors all week, there is no better way to spend your evenings or weekends than outside, taking a nature walk, soaking up the sun and enjoying some green before the snow falls…from the park in the center of the city to the towering trees of the forest, it is time to grab that PSL, load up the kids, and spend some time communing with nature.
