Baking Halloween Cookies and Watching Classics

One of the best parts of fall is staying indoors! Pick a cold rainy day to get your fire going in your fireplace and turn on some Halloween classics. Either make your favorite homemade cookie or make some store-bought Halloween-themed sugar cookies. Pile on your couch together and cuddle up in front of the fire while watching your favorite Halloween movie.

Seasonal Hiking Perfect For Fall In Georgia

There’s nothing like seeing crimson leaves each fall. Spending time in the woods on a scenic fall hike with your loved ones is a perfect fall activity. Wait till the first week of October to see the leaves when they are the most vibrant and the air is crisp. Imagine heading up a beautiful mountainside with your family, appreciating the beautiful annual changing scenery. One of our favorite spots to hike, even if it is a bit of a trek to get there, is Amicalola Falls State Park, with gorgeous trails and Georgia’s largest waterfall.

Georgia Apple Picking and Baking Traditions

Start a pie from scratch, the very best first step being to go pick some apples! An excursion to an orchard to handpick your apples will put everyone in your family in the fall spirit. Once done, head back to the kitchen to get the dough rolling and apples simmering. Throw it all together, and then decorate your pie with lattice designs and leaf cutouts for beautiful fall garnishing.
