34 Fall Bucket List Ideas for 2024

Fall Bucket List

There’s something about fall that makes it my favorite: warm sweaters, tea and campfires..  I am here to help you make this fall the most memorable and exciting! Here is my fall bucket list activities that I will try to accomplish this fall and so should you!

This fall I want to encourage you to catch up with all of the things you wanted to accomplish this year, as it’s not too late! If you wanted to eat healthier or start reading more, now is the perfect time to start over! You can still meet your goals! Every year I make a promise to exercise more and this fall I started to count my steps again and try to meet my target every day.

The Perfect Fall Bucket List

1. First of all, think of what’s most important to you and how you want to make your quality of life better. Focus on that goal and try to accomplish it by the end of the season!

2. Now that the serious stuff is over, enjoy this beautiful season, go to a pumpkin patch, take pictures in the field of pumpkins, and get one to take home with you

So Many Events, Pick and Choose or Go to All of Them!

3. Celebrate the Day Of The Dead – it’s a really cool cultural experience, you should dress up for it, too!

4. Attend Oktoberfest

5. Go to a Fall fair

6. Visit a haunted house

8. Organize a Halloween party

18. Visit a place you have never been before – that’s a must for any season

19. Visit a farmers’ market and buy fresh apples, sweet potatoes and jam from your local farmers – next time you’ll have local produce is in the spring

    Love your list, lots of great ideas! I might add, have a yard/garage sale to purge out un-needed items before the holidays:) I also love to craft, so I like to create decorations and decorate my home to feel like Fall, especially needed here in Florida since it still feels like Summer! Sharing your list!

    Having moved to Florida from New England, we get a different version of fall. I love these ideas! We just returned from Ohio and went on hayrides. We also did some pumpkin picking. All I need now is apple cider and a cinnamon cider donut. Man, I wished our leaves changed colors.

    Love this list! I’m trying to figure out my goals for the next couple of months so this is a great jumpstart. I’m thinking about focusing on my new(ish) blog, especially skills related to Instagram, and getting back in the swing of outdoor running once the temperatures cool down a bit.
