Fall….a relief from the blistering summer sun, a mixture of red, orange, and yellow in the trees, and a new list of fun activities to do. Whether you go apple picking, carve a pumpkin, or drink the #PSL (Pumpkin Spice Latte) every day of the week, everyone can agree there are so many great things to list about Fall! Below are a few of our staff’s favorite things about Fall!
My absolute favorite thing to do in the Fall is to go apple picking! I used to go as a young child with my grandparents and it’s been a tradition of mine to do ever since! There is nothing like driving up to the mountains as the leaves are starting to change and experiencing that crispness in the air as it starts getting cooler and cooler. My friends and I went up this past month to Sky Top Orchard. I was the only one that attempted to climb the trees to get the best of the crop! It was so much fun and I highly recommend it to anyone who has never gone! – Shawn Kinard
I grew up in the Blue Ridge Mountains in Staunton, VA – haven’t been there? You should plan a road trip in the Fall! Some of my favorite things are the smell of crisp air, gorgeous colors, UVA and WFU tailgating, sunshine, camping, fire pits and my birthday!! – Katherine Ericson
We love Fall festivals! This is “Aunt Het’s Day” in Fountain Inn. – Carol Tribby
Fall is my absolute favorite season. I have five pumpkins on my front porch. Julie Andrews should’ve sung about pumpkins, football, sweaters, and leaves changing in The Sound of Music. I went to Fall for Greenville four times this weekend. Why? Because it’s my favorite thing.

My 5 favorite things about Fall:
1. Leaving the back porch door open to feel the breeze through the house
2. Pumpkins, pumpkins, pumpkins: pumpkin pancakes, pumpkin muffins, pumpkin beer, pumpkin candles, basically pumpkin ANYTHING!
3. Watching Clemson football and all the new Fall TV shows
4. Decorating for Halloween
5. Bringing out the jeans and boots!
Fall always signals football season, Clemson orange, watching the leaves change colors and the holidays are right around the corner. Fall is my favorite time of year for so many reasons but I have to say my most favorite part is the cooler weather with no humidity! – Rebecca Faulk
I like everything about Fall: cooler weather, Pumpkin Spiced Lattes, pulling out my Fall/Halloween decorations, getting to wear boots, and having the pets inside to snuggle up with. I absolutely love Fall! October is my birthday month so there is lots of celebrating in October that takes me right through to Thanksgiving and Christmas.
