Outdoor activities that you can do with friends, family or solo

NRG has compiled six simple tips for you to savor the beauty of the fall season

Make the most of fall

Fall brings cooler temperatures and more opportunities to get outside and enjoy the fresh air, changing scenery, and more. Winter will be here before we know it, so take advantage of the season now with some of these ideas.

Have a picnic in the park

When was the last time you visited a park? If it’s been a while, now is the time to plan a picnic. Don’t let the idea seem too whimsical. All you need to do is a pack a small bag or cooler with some of you and your family’s favorite snacks, and the rest plans itself.

Go for a hike

Looking for a fun fall activity that’s good for your health? Look no further than taking a hike. Trails range from big to small and easy to challenging. All you need to start is comfortable clothes, shoes, and a water bottle to keep hydrated.

Homegate (home + tailgating)

Fall sports are some of the best around, from playoff baseball to football at every level. And there’s maybe no way to enjoy them than homegating. Fire up the grill, invite friends over and enjoy the game.

Get in touch with your produce

A family-favorite fall activity is a trip out to the farmer’s market or a you-pick farm/orchard. This is a great chance to meet your neighbors, learn a little more about your food and finish the day with a delicious meal.

Go camping

Want to spend more than just an afternoon outside? Then pack a tent and go camping. From making s’mores to a friendly game of horseshoes, camping can be a great way to relax in the outdoors for a weekend.

Try fishing with your kids/friends

Getting to the water is a great way to spend some quality time with the people around you. Fishing offers a fun activity, but the real joy is in the time you spend with others.
