Ahhhh! I’m literally screaming because fall is finally here! The crisp air, the holiday treats and lattes, the beautiful colored leaves; what’s not to love? It’s all so magical! So I’m sharing my Fall 2020 Bucket List in hopes that it inspires you to make your own, to give you some ideas, and to help you make the most out of the best season ever!
1. See Fall Foliage
Plan your next road trip to Oregon, Colorado, New York, or any of the other amazing states that offer stunning fall foliage and catch the beautiful tall trees when their leaves are painted red, orange, and yellow! This year I’m going to Vermont and I CAN’T WAIT!!!
2. Bake a Pumpkin or Apple Pie
What’s more delicious than fall themed treats? I’m so excited to bake an apple pie, pumpkin bread, or maybe even pumpkin spice donuts and pair it with some warm apple cider or an oat latte for a cozy evening treat.
3. Go Apple Picking
I haven’t gone apple picking in yearssss! So I’m super excited to go this season and have some fresh apples for those fall themed treats we just talked about! Also, it’s like the cutest thing and I’m sure there will be tons of photo ops! Woo hoo!
4. Carve a Pumpkin
Literally one of my favorite things to do because you can get so creative (and competitive)! Haha! My boyfriend and I do it every year and we’re always competing to see whose pumpkin is best! It’s also a great indoor family activity!
5. Drink Apple Cider
Once upon time, I went to Trader Joes and they were serving apple cider samples and I fell in love. The end! Haha! I’ve been drinking warm apple cider every fall season since then! You should, too! It’s like fall giving you a big warm hug…in a cup!
6. Have a Harry Potter Marathon
There really should be no explanation for this one but come on…Harry Potter is not just the best movie series ever but it also has tons of fall vibes and scenes to help set the mood! Magic, pumpkins, candles, eerie forests, owls, broomsticks, and long dining tables full of festive treats. Need I say more?
7. Have a Fall Themed Photoshoot
This year I want to capture some specials fall and Halloween moments with my boyfriend. I plan on doing a whole photoshoot with lots of pumpkins and fallen leaves. Who knows, maybe we’ll even throw on our costumes!
8. Go to A Pumpkin Patch
Pumpkin patches are so much fun! You get to pick out your own pumpkins, get lost in corn mazes, go on hayrides, play fun games, and snack on yummy treats! I go every single year!

9. Visit a Drive-In Movie Theatre
I could not go without adding this one to my fall 2020 bucket list! When temperatures start to drop, right before it’s freezing cold, that’s the perfect time to have one last drive-in movie theatre date. You can wear your favorite knit sweater, take some pillows and blankets, a warm beverage, caramel popcorn, and snuggle up to a movie with your favorite person!
10. Early Morning Breakfast in the Crisp Air
I want to wake up, make my breakfast and coffee, and take it outside to enjoy the crisp air while being wrapped in a cozy blanket. It just sounds so peaceful!
11. Snuggle Up Around a Bonfire
I’m so excited to plan a bonfire with friends! Long chilly nights, warm drinks, music, s’mores, roasted marshmallows, and good company are always a good idea!
12. Go Star Gazing
I love doing this with my boyfriend. We usually head outside of the city where it’s super dark and create a cozy setup inside the car where we can just lay back, listen to music, talk for hours, and watch the stars shine bright all night long.
13. Have a Scary Movie Marathon
Probably one of my favorite activities during this season because I’m such a huge fan of film and because horror is one of my favorite genres! I love all spooky movies; whether it’s throwback Halloween movies from my childhood that spark all the nostalgia or the scariest movies ever that lead me to have nightmares, I love them all!
14. Make My Own Fall Latte
This fall I’m going to get super creative with my coffee and lattes. I really want to try something with cinnamon and apple!
15. Take a Nature Hike
Nature hikes during fall are so much more enjoyable! Not too cold, not too hot, and not too many allergies haha! Not to mention the pretty leaves and all the different colors in the trees!
16. Stay in on a Rainy Day and Spend It Reading + Journaling
I’m especially looking forward for this one! I’m usually always working and on the go, so this fall I want to leave several days aside to just relax. I want to read, write in my journal, watch the rain, and have slow, cozy days!
That’s it for now! I hope you enjoyed my Fall 2020 Bucket List and I hope you were able to gather some inspo! HAPPY FALL!
