Start Making Your Fall ‘Bucket List’ Today

fall apples 300LEXINGTON, Ky (9/4/2013)—The first day of fall is just a few weeks away. The weather might start to get a little colder but this shouldn’t keep you from enjoying the outdoors. Autumn is one of the most exciting times of the year. You get to watch the leaves change, carve pumpkins, and have a reason to get lost in a corn maze. Since the first day of fall is September 22, now is the time to start making your ‘2013 Fall Bucket List.’

A few ideas that you can enjoy with your family this fall are:
-Go apple picking at Evans Orchard, located right outside of Lexington at 180 Stone Road, Georgetown. At Evans you can ride ponies, pick apples, go to the pumpkin patch, and much more!

-When the leaves start to change in the next couple of weeks, take a walk at The Arboretum. Collect some of the colorful leaves and make a seasonal artwork to hang on the wall. If you have any extra leaves left over, preserve them by pressing them in a book so that you can always remember your fall bucket list adventure.

-After visiting the orchard, make caramel apples and savor the sweet, sugary taste.

-Attend a local fall festival at a school or downtown.

-Carve a pumpkin and cook the seeds after, sprinkle different seasoning on each batch to find your favorite pumpkin seed flavor!

-Try to make it through one of Lexington’s famous Haunted Houses.

-Collect can goods and take them to our local food pantry to help those in need during the upcoming holiday season.

As you mark off things on your bucket list, add a few more. Not only will this give you and your family something to do together, but you will also be making memories that will last forever.
