Cooler weather is starting to roll in and it’s time to prepare for some fun fall activities in style. There are plenty of ways to get outside and stay active during the colder months. It is still a great time for group activates such as; hiking, team sports, and bar crawls. Always remember to dress appropriately and comfortably for the weather.
Fall is a wonderful time to go on a good hike, especially in the mountains. The leaves are changing and the snow has yet to stick. With beautiful views of the fall colors and good temperatures to keep you cool on a long excursion, there is little to complain about. Some of my favorite hiking destinations are at the best in the fall. This is always a great option for a date with the wife, girlfriend, or a fun family bonding experience. My three favorite hiking spots in Colorado are, Mountain Lion Loop in Golden, Flattop Mountain in Estes Park, and Bear Lake Trail Head: Five Loop in Estes Park.
Fall Team Sports
Football season is in full swing at this time of year and everyone and their brother is ready to cheer on their team. Why not get outside and challenge some friends and family to a fun game of touch football? You can pretend to be Arron Rodgers, Tom Brady, or Ben Roethlisberger and throw perfect passes to your brother or take the hand off like Le’Veon Bell and Todd Gurley and juke out your buddies on the way to the end zone. If your friends and family aren’t into it, you can always look up local after work leagues and weekend recreational clubs.
Fall Bar Crawls
Breweries love to get creative with flavors for their fall seasonal beers. With pumpkin flavors and the flavors of thanksgiving, there are plenty of options from everyone to enjoy. One of my favorite fall activities is to get a group of friends together and check out some local breweries or plan a bar crawl to sample all of the delicious new brews. Many local bars and breweries will put deals on Groupon that will help you plan an awesome night without breaking the bank.
Prep for Fall Activities
If you are getting ready to head outside for some touch football or a good hike with some friends you need to prepare yourself for what’s ahead. When you are playing team sports it’s important to know what the weather forecast for the day is and what to wear. Ideally you want to have some good affordable sport sunglasses that are durable and comfortable enough to handle the rigors of the activity. You won’t have a good time if you’re constantly squinting from the sun shining in your eyes.
As you can see there is no shortage of way to enjoy the fall in style. It’s now up to you to make the plans and get the most out of this wonderful time of year.
