Fall is quickly approaching, and that means change. Change can be a scary thing, or it can be an exciting opportunity. Fortunately, Fall 🍂 is a great and exciting change that brings with it many new ways to enjoy life and our beautiful Virginia. We know this to be particularly true in Virginia, where the changing of the seasons brings a visible change. Our state is awesome like that.
This also means that we get to look forward to the seasonal change and all that comes with this. While one might not necessarily think about Fall as a swimming season, we are grateful that swimming 🏊♀️ is not bound to one particular season. We highly recommend continual practice in the pool each week! But that does not mean we want you to ignore Fall. On the contrary, we want to give you some Fall season activities to help you have a fabulous Fall!
Changing of Leaves 🍁
One of the most notable features of Fall is the changing of the leaves. It is superb to observe. The way the leaves go from deep green to a lively and bright cornucopia of colors is a once-per-year experience. We highly recommend you take some to sit and enjoy it. Take a weekend and visit the mountains ⛰ where the trees are abundant and the views stunning.
Pumpkin Spice 🎃
How can Fall be complete without some pumpkin spice in it? Now, we get it. Not everyone is on the side of pumpkin spice. But that is alright; they will come around 😉. Whether it is your favorite pumpkin spice coffee at Starbucks or your homemade coffee ☕️ with some pumpkin spice creamer, we are all for it! It is officially a part of Fall now. Maybe we should make a petition to have a pumpkin spice holiday on the first day of Fall? Could work…
Few things are as magical for us as a fire on a cool Fall evening. The kids love it, and everyone has a good time. You can make some smores or simply enjoy the fire. You could even grill out over the fire if you are adventurous! However you like to enjoy the fire, we encourage everyone to make some Fall fires and enjoy being outside.
Fall Bike Rides 🚲
Fredericksburg has some great trails that are a lot of fun to go for a bike ride on. You get to enjoy the leaves, cooler weather, and beautiful scenery all at once. Visit the Fredericksburg Park and Rec website to learn all about these trails. Go for a bike ride, or even a nice walk 🏃 , this Fall. We know we will be there.
We hope that all of our families will take some time to enjoy the Fall season and everything that comes with it. Change can be a really good thing for all of us if we are willing to lean forward and enjoy the ride. And of course, last but not least, by far the best part of Fall is that extra hour of sleep 😴.
