The first day of Fall is on September 22nd so get ready for changing leaves, warmer clothes and pumpkin spice everything. We came up with 10 Things to do in Phoenix during September, and now here’s 10 ways to enjoy Fall in Phoenix!
1. Watch a “Fall” Movie
Cozy up with your favorite blanket and a cup of hot cocoa to watch your favorite fall inspired movie! This can be either a Halloween themed one, or just one that takes place in the fall. Either way, it’s a nice way to spend a weekend.
2. Pumpkin Patches
The most fall thing you can do is head over to your local pumpkin patch and grab a pumpkin! You can use one to decorate or to make delicious fall desserts. Plus, most pumpkin patches have other fall activities that the whole family can join: apple cider tastings, pumpkin decorating contests or even hayrides! Here’s a List of pumpkin patches around Phoenix!
3. Enjoy the Outdoors:
Just take a walk! Fall in Phoenix is such a nice time of year, it would be such shame to waste it. So get outside and walk around your neighborhood or go to the Desert Botanical Gardens. A walk is a great way to enjoy fall and it gets your blood moving, plus the whole family can join in!
