Summer may be over, but that definitely doesn’t mean the fun has to stop. This fall can be filled with so many activities and festivities, you’ll be sure to not get those winter blues just yet.

Here are just a few things that you might want to consider putting on your fall bucket list.

Have a scary movie marathon.
What better way to ring in the spooky season than by watching your favorite horror movies? Of course, you’ll have to start with the classics: “Nightmare on Elm St.,” “Hocus Pocus” and “Friday the 13th.”

Pumpkin Carving.
This one might be cliché, but if you really think about, when is the last time you carved a pumpkin? Head to the grocery store, find the fattest pumpkin you can and carve away. Oh, and be sure not to forget to roast those pumpkin seeds!

Make desserts.
Take advantage of those pumpkin recipes you are seeing online as the fall rolls in. After all, when are you really going to get to eat pumpkin pie again if you don’t do it now?

Go to a haunted house.
Take a group of friends with you to the scariest haunted house you can find and watch the looks of horror on their faces as you casually pretend haunted houses don’t bother them.

Navigate your way through an escape room.
If you don’t know what an escape room is, it’s where a group of people gather in a themed room and are given clues on how to solve a puzzle and escape before the time is up. Find a Halloween themed one and you’ve got yourself a fun-filled, fall night.

Go apple picking.
In most parts of the U.S., the best time to find the ripest apples are during the last few weeks of September and into early October, according to The Huffington Post. There is a vast number of treats that can be made from apples such as apple butter, apple pie and, of course, candy apples!

Go to a football game.
Not only is football the go-to sport for the fall season, but it's also a good way to get your school spirit on.

Go hiking.
Although this may sound like a summer activity, it can actually be much more enjoyable to hike in cooler temperatures and with no bugs. The colorful, autumnal scenery also enhances the outdoor experience.

Go antiquing/thrifting.
When many of the bigger antique shows and flea markets open up, this is definitely a great way to treat yourself to some new finds without breaking the bank.

Make hot apple cider.
Not only is this drink a staple of the season, but it's extremely easy and affordable to make, as well. What’s also nice about it is that you don’t even have to make it yourself if you don’t want to — just about every store in the area will definitely be selling apple cider throughout the fall season.
