In many places across the country, signs of fall are beginning to appear. Aside from the beautiful scenery, many college students have one thing to look forward to in the coming weeks: fall break.
With midterms approaching, students are undoubtedly feeling tired, stressed and in need of fun and relaxation. Whether it lasts one day or one week, fall break will be highly anticipated before it comes, thoroughly enjoyed while it lasts and greatly missed when it ends.
Some will use fall break to visit home; others will choose to take a mini-vacation. Still others choose to stay on campus and spend time with friends.
If you want to do something fun during fall break but don’t have any ideas, here are a few things you can do to make sure your fall break is both rejuvenating and entertaining.
Corn mazes are one of the most popular fall break destinations. They often bring all of the sights, sounds and smells of fall together in one place, and many offer fun activities for all ages.
Generally, there are two types of corn mazes available for visiting. If you’re looking for a more relaxed and peaceful experience, a daytime corn maze is probably the way to go.
If you’d like a little more excitement, get a group of friends together and check out a haunted corn maze. Perfect for thrill-seekers, these mazes can involve anything from spooky noises to unexpected figures lurking in the shadows.
Many corn mazes offer a more laid-back atmosphere during the day before converting to haunted mazes at night. This way, visitors can get a taste of both types of corn mazes in one place.
Many towns and even some colleges and universities hold annual fall festivals with free activities for those who attend.
From music and games to flavorful food and handmade crafts, fall festivals are cultural hotspots that are perfect for a quick getaway.
Carving pumpkins is a great way to express creativity. From goofy faces to nature scenes to Halloween-themed creations, limitless pumpkin designing options can be found on the Internet, or you can create your own design.
Pumpkin carving can be even more fun in a group. To make things even more exciting, hold a contest to see who carves the most attractive pumpkin, and have the group pitch in to get an award for the winner.
Whether you choose to stick with your usual fall break routine or decide to try something new, make it your goal to make this year’s fall break the best one yet.
