Seven ways to make the most of the season

Fall is officially in full swing. In honor of the season, The Franklin compiled a list of just a few fall activities that are sure to get you in the mood of the season.

  1. Visit a local fall festival. What season offers more festivals than any other? From parades to food vendors, there’s something for everyone at a local fall festival.
  2. Get lost in a corn maze. Several farms and orchards, including Kelsay Farms in Whiteland, offer a range of corn mazes.
  3. Drink a cup of your favorite apple cider. This is a favorite fall past time for anyone who loves apple cider. You can find cider at any grocery store, and it tastes even better after it’s heated in a microwave for a few seconds. Add a pinch of cinnamon and you will definitely crave more.
  4. Sit around a bonfire. There is nothing better than sitting around a bonfire as the smell of burning wood consumes the air. What makes a bonfire better? A warm hoodie, friends and s’mores.
  5. Reconnect with nature while camping. Whether you enjoy primitive camping or prefer to camp in luxury, fall is the best season to go camping. The air is crisper, the nights are cool and the stars seem to shine more brightly. As a bonus, you can enjoy more time outside without heat exhaustion.
  6. Bake your favorite fall treats. Nothing says fall like apples and pumpkins. From apple crisps to apple tarts, and from pumpkin pie to a loaf of pumpkin bread—you can never run out of fresh ideas.
  7. Go hiking. Spend your weekend hiking at Brown County State Park in Nashville, Indiana. Surround yourself in the bright colors of fall before it all fades. Take note of the burnt oranges, fiery reds and deep yellows.
