  • Who doesn’t love apples?? There are many amazing apple orchards here in St. louis such as Eckert’s.

Corn Maze

  • Have fun getting lost in the midst of so much corn.

Scenic drive

  • Put on some music and invite your family and friends to drive around some of the more scenic parts of Missouri.

  • Enjoy the changing colors of the leaves that will warm up your trip.

Play touch football

  • For anyone, this can be a fun game to play with family and friends. What better way to get your energy out by getting a couple of touchdowns?

Go for a hike or a bike ride

  • There are many great trails around the Missouri area such as the Katy trail.

Go camping and have a campfire

  • There are many campsites around Missouri both close to St. Louis and further into the state. You can even camp out in your backyard!

Roast marshmallows

Go to a pumpkin patch

  • Gather some friends or family members together to find the perfect pumpkin. Whether it is a big or little pumpkin, there are so many to choose from.

Carve a pumpkin

  • Once you’ve found your pumpkin, carving it is another spooky way to feel in the fall mood. You can do a cute traditional pumpkin, a scary one, a unique design, or anything to your heart’s content.

Go to a farmers’ market

  • So many fresh foods are growing in fall, so what better than to buy them from farmers at a market. Markets are also fun to walk around and explore the different items.

Have a picnic

  • An autumn picnic is a beautiful way to spend some time outdoors. Grab a blanket, a delicious meal, and some friends and go enjoy the day.

Make fall crafts

  • pinecone bird feeder, leaf coloring; fall wreath, paint a pumpkin, press leaves in an album, or whatever makes you feel creative.

Bake an autumn dessert

  • apple pie, apple crisp, pumpkin pie, pumpkin bread, or so many other desserts!

Watch Halloween movies

  • Whether it is horror or a classic or whatever makes you feel in the fall mood, find a good movie and cozy up with some blankets and enjoy.

Stargazing with blankets and friends
