Autumn is arguably the best time of the year: crisp cool air, fall fashion, changing colors and Halloween make for a wonderfully fulfilled season.
1. Apple Picking
Have a breath of fresh air together while simultaneously picking delicious fruit. You can not only have a great time in the orchards, you can also make pies and tarts together using your bounty later on.

7. Game Day
Even if you're not super interested in football, the games can actually be pretty fun. Make a fun day of it: start with tailgating, catch an awesome game and then go out after to your favorite sports bar.
