The beautiful weather of fall and the many festivities that go with it give you plenty of fun and free things to do. Getting out of the house with supportive friends, family and your significant other for these free events will help take your mind off infertility and you won’t feel guilty about spending any money! Here are some of my favorite fun fall activities to do when you’re on an infertility budget.
The autumn colors on the trees and the fallen leaves on the paths will put you in the perfect fall mood. Consider going for a picnic wrapped up in a sweater and boots with plenty of pumpkin treats!
While you are in the state park, or any other outdoor area, go leaf picking to find the best looking leaves in the most vibrant colors. Once you have a great bundle of leaves, you can create some neat projects.
There are many orchards within driving distance of major cities across the country. Explore some of the options close to you and see which ones offer free admission. Most orchards will allow you to pick apples and pay for them later, but you can visit an orchard for free to explore.
Many cities hold their annual festivals in the fall, where you are free to walk around and explore the games, booths and food that is offered. Plan a trip to a local fall festival with friends and have fun exploring the different things to do.
The crisp night air is one of the best parts of fall. See if you can find a bonfire close to your home to attend for the evening. The smell of the fall air combined with the warmth of a bonfire is a fun and free way to enjoy the season — and the perfect time to reconnect with your spouse! Bonfires are very romantic. If you can’t find a bonfire, plan a trip to the country to go stargazing with plenty of blankets and pillows.
