Things to do this Fall – Oktoberfest! to Haunted Houses

Things to do this Fall

From Oktoberfest to Haunted Houses, October is a happening month.  This is the start of Fall in many places and a time for change means there are things to do that can’t be done during the summer months, like watching the trees change colors, celebrating Octoberfest, or scaring yourself silly at a haunted house.  Whether you want to spend some time picking apples or gas up your hog for one last ride through the hills before snow, there are tons of things to get you moving in the month of October.

The month starts out with Ocktoberfest or Octoberfest and it is celebrated from it’s home in Munich Germany all the way to Fredericksburg, Texas.  This year marks the 200th anniversary of the original Oktoberfest in Munich and celebrations abound in various places from the first of the month until October 18th all over Germany.  This is the largest festival in Germany and if you are lucky enough to attend then you’ll have the opportunity to taste the finest beer brewed in the city limits of Munich.  If you aren’t lucky enough to find yourself in Deutchland, then count your blessings that this festival has been adopted all over the world from Tokyo to Las Vegas, Nevada!

Fall Foliage

The Fall Season is a wonderful time of year for many in the Northern Hemisphere as the foliage changes into a dazzling array of colors. Taking aFall Foliage camera with you as you hike the Appalachia trail through somewhere between Georgia and Maine will offer a variety of environments and endless photo ops but as the season goes on, the weather will play a major part in what parts of the trail are accessible.

Haunted Houses

Don’t forget to visit your local Haunted House to keep that heart rate up.  From Nightmare on Grayson in San Antonio, Texas to  The Beast in Kansas City, Missouri, the nights belong to Creepy Clowns and Spooky Ghosts.  From Warehouses and Hayrides, the options are spooktacular and the action is deadly!
