“Fall” into Fall: 5 Festive Activities During a Pandemic



Berks County Living

Fall is just around the corner, and COVID-19 is unfortunately still alive and thriving.


While we still need to protect ourselves from the virus, there is always room for fun + safe fall activities.

Here are a few ideas that will get you excited for the change of season! (even during a pandemic)

1.) Go to a winery


What’s better than 65 degrees and a glass of your favorite wine? Absolutely nothing? That’s what we thought! Almost every state has incredible vineyards that allow you to sample, tour, and spend the day. Don’t feel like finding a babysitter? Make it a family day! Some wineries are kid + dog friendly and even encourage you to bring food.

2.) Take a scenic hike


The hot summer months are gone, and it’s finally comfortable hiking weather! From a simple stroll to a more challenging work out, a hike is the perfect outdoor activity for a fall afternoon.

3.) Bake a pie from scratch


Nothing better then the smell of fresh pie! Instead of purchasing one from the store, pick your favorite in season fruit and bake a pie from scratch. If it seems like a challenge, just remember, IF YOU CAN MAKE IT THROUGH A PANDEMIC, YOU CAN FOLLOW A RECIPE!


4.) Pick + Carve Pumpkins


If this isn’t part of your fall tradition already, consider adding it to the list! Spend a day with loved ones (or yourself…no judgement) picking pumpkins and carving a custom piece.

TIP: Check out a YouTube tutorial on how to add a light bulb to your carving! It can be the perfect decor for your autumn stoop!

5.) Picnic in the park!


Pack your favorite fall lunch, grab a blanket, and hit the park! Picnics are a simple way to enjoy a weekend afternoon with friends and family. If it’s a slightly windy day, perhaps the kids want to bring a colorful kite to keep them amused.

TIP: Some parks have access to grills if you are looking to cook!

Stay healthy, cozy up, and enjoy the change of season!
