Boston Fall Bucket List

By Blonde Bowhemian - October 04, 2017

Even though the temperatures up here in Boston are still pretty high, it's hard to not get in the fall spirit when it's already October. Every season I make a list in my head of fun things to do during weekends and holidays, and I thought why not share that list here? Plus, if I write it down maybe I'll be more likely to get it all done ;) It's hard not to make a fall bucket list look basic, but I took my chances because these are things I actually want to do and, hey, basic isn't always a bad thing! Here's what's on my list: 

Go apple picking - Read about our trip to Honey Pot Hill Orchards in Stow, MA here!

Take a leaf peeping tour - Having grown up in New England, one of my favorite things is watching the leaves change. In a few weeks, we'll be heading up to VT to take in all the beautiful fall foliage - so excited!

Get lost in a corn maze -  Sooo many childhood memories of corn mazes (some good, some ending in tears haha). I'm thinking of going to Connors Farm in Danvers or Hanson's Farm in Framingham. 

Stay in a B&B - There's nothing like home-cooked breakfast at a family-run B&B in New England. I'm looking forward to our stay at a B&B in VT. 

Carve pumpkins - This is a yearly tradition for me even though I may be the least artistic person you've ever met. Maybe we can even pick our pumpkins from a bonafide patch...

Go for a hike - Hiking around Boston is something I keep telling myself I'm going to do...yet here I am. We'll definitely do some hiking in VT, but as for around Boston, I'm thinking of starting with some of the hikes listed here.

Picnic in the Common - Another thing I've wanted to do since I've moved! It will certainly never be like our picnic in front of the Champ du Mars, but it could be a close second ;) 

Make mulled cider - Cozying up in front of the fire (read: Netflix fireplace), mulled cider in one hand, a good book in the other...the perfect fall weekend if you ask me.

Explore Beacon Hill - There's something so quintessentially New England about Beacon Hill, with its narrow cobblestone streets (like this one!) and uniform brick town homes. I'd love to spend a day wandering the neighborhood, ooh-ing and aah-ing over all of the fall decorations on the houses and picking out my dream home.
