While your kids might be sad to see the barbecues and pool days of summer go, the fall offers just as many chances to experience the great outdoors. From the vibrant foliage to the cool, fresh air, people of all ages can enjoy the season’s offerings on a day’s retreat. To ensure your family has a memorable autumn, put these items on your fall list.
Autumn Activities for the Entire Family
1. Nature Hikes
While you might be in the mood to cozy up at home, take a break to get your blood flowing by going for a hike. With the trees turning into fiery shades above you, and the satisfying crunch of fallen leaves underfoot, you can experience all the sensory joys of the season at your own pace. When your little ones start getting tired, motivate them with the promise of a fire pit and hot apple cider.
2. Bike Rides
Pull on a sweater and invite the family on a bike ride this fall. The chilly weather allows you to push on for a greater distance, but don’t forget to bring water bottles and granola bars for a pit stop along the way. Instead of traveling along a straight roadway, choose a winding trail to keep the whole family entertained, as well as to avoid the dangers of traffic.
3. Camping Trips
Fall offers some of the most temperate weather of the year, which, in some regions of the country, makes it ideal for camping. Suggest an adventure to your loved ones by going tent shopping, stocking a cooler with snacks, and packing your telescope for a bit of star-gazing. For peace of mind, opt for a camping spot that’s close to a facility such as a hotel or a retreat so that help is never far away.
This autumn, treat the family to the best of the indoors and outdoors at Jordan Hill Farm. During the day, enjoy a picturesque scene of ponds and streams, and fill up on fresh bluegrass cuisine in their celebrated, upscale restaurant. Then, snuggle up in a rustic bedroom or pitch a tent on their 85 acres of natural beauty. To learn more about their retreat and event venue options, visit the website or call (859) 623-0807.
