It’s finally the season of pumpkin spice, leaf peeping, and all things cozy. While this year has brought many restrictions in terms of what we’re able to do, there are plenty of fun fall activities that should cheer us up! Amidst the cooler weather and beautiful changing leaves, there are endless fall activities for families that both the young and old can enjoy. Lace up your trusty pair of comfortable fall boots and get ready to enjoy the best fall activities with your family or friends.
Autumn is a foodie’s favorite season and there’s nothing more fresh and delicious than locally grown fruits and veggies. Check to see if your local Farmer’s Market is back, because many have reopened with limited restrictions. From fresh apple cider to squash, mushrooms, brussel sprouts, and homemade treats, fall at the Farmer’s Market can’t be beat. Spend a morning wandering around in comfortable sneakers or sneaker boots while also supporting local farms and businesses in the process.
It doesn’t matter if you’re a kid or a kid at heart, a corn maze can be great fun for everyone. The corn acts as a natural barrier that will socially distance you from others in the maze, plus you’ll be outside the whole time. As you try to work yourself out of the giant puzzle, you may get your shoes a little dirty, so be sure to wear a durable pair of boots with a rubber sole like Cutie that can easily be cleaned. These versatile boots with a wool collar are made for outdoor adventures in the cooler months.
One of the classic fall activities that can’t be missed, apple picking is an ideal way to spend a Saturday outside. As you meander through the orchard, enjoy carefully selecting the ripest, most beautiful apples and adding them to your bushel. You can later use them to bake pies, apple crumble, or apple cider!
As you’ll be spending a lot of time on your feet, be sure to wear boots that are fully supportive like Work It High. These stylish active boots are made for walking, with a removable Curves & Pods orthotic footbed that cushions and supports the arches.
Bring your wheelbarrow because heading to the pumpkin patch this year is definitely on the to-do list. It’s fun to get a mixture of pumpkin types so you can decorate with them in different ways. With classic orange, lumina, and goose bump pumpkins, you can carve, paint, or even bake them into a pie once you get home. Don’t forget to roast the seeds, which make for a delicious and healthy snack!
After all these outdoor activities, remember to keep your Taos intact with top-of-the-line products for shoe care.
If you’re really missing the bars this year, why not try heading to your local brewery? Lots of breweries have outdoor seating where you can try a beer flight or enjoy sipping on local cider if that’s more your speed. For a casual, but fun fall outfit, throw on a pair of jeans with a flannel shirt and suede Dillie boots. With a soft faux-fur lining, these low heeled boots will keep your toes warm when the temperatures start to drop at dusk.
Movie theaters may still be closed, but we’ve noticed drive-in movies popping up everywhere. Whether you need a romantic date night idea or a way to entertain the kids on a Friday, this is the perfect activity for a chilly fall night. You’ll be safe and socially distanced from others in your own car, yet feel more social than if you were to stay home.
Comfort in boots is a top priority when you’re spending all day walking around outside this fall. You should be focused on having fun, not worrying about flare ups from a common foot problem like plantar fasciitis. To make sure your feet don’t get in the way of the fun, Taos boots are designed with cushioning and protection in mind. So go ahead and wear your favorite colorful boots outdoors -- you can still make a style statement without sacrificing comfort or support.
