What to get up to on a cold fall evening

When the weather starts to cool off and fall comes around, there’s nothing better than snuggling up and protecting yourself from the harsh elements.

However, there’s nothing worse than being stuck indoors bored when it’s cold and dark, which is why we’ve put together a bucket list of fun activities to try out if you’re looking for an interesting way to spend an evening this autumn…


Make some apple cider

Get into the spirit and make some warm, indulgent drinks like chai-spiced apple cider. The Kitchn has put together a fantastic recipe. Once you’re done, get a couple of blankets and curl up in your bay window to watch the world go by – or watch your favourite Netflix show instead!


Make a fort

When it’s dark at 4 pm and raining, there’s nothing better than building a massive blanket fort in your bedroom or living room. Do it on your own to escape the world or create a romantic setting for you and your loved one to spend some quality time together with a movie and some snacks.


Play some online games

Another way to pass the time on an autumn evening is to play some online games and challenge yourself to win. Whether it’s a new mobile game on Apple Arcade or a bingo website (read online casino reviews here) where you can win real money, there are so many games to get lost in. Just remember to be sensible when spending money online – know when to stop.



Visit a haunted house

Companies are capitalising on the growing trend for scare mazes and Halloween experiences, so go all out and visit a haunted house this fall. Whether it’s an organised event or you fancy a wander around a derelict building near your local park, you’ll have hours of fun (and screams), but always follow the law and don’t trespass. It’s not only illegal, but it could be dangerous.


Go stargazing

Head to your local park on a clear evening with some blankets and a pillow and watch the world go by from above. Stargazing isn’t possible every evening so you’ll have to do some research, but if you’re patient and head to the right spots, you’re bound to discover a breathtaking view…

This is a real photograph called 'The Mirrored Night Sky’ by Xiaohua Zhao. It was part of the Insight Astronomy Photographer of the Year competition hosted by the Royal Museums of Greenwich in 2015. This photo shows “An enthralled stargazer… immersed in the stars as the luminous purple sky is mirrored in the thin sheet of water across the world’s largest salt flat, Salar de Uyuni in Bolivia.” . . .

Finally, consider rolling up your sleeves and making some cute fall bakes. Whether it’s pumpkin pie, some cookies, or even some caramels to hand out to the trick or treaters, you’ll have hours of fun in the kitchen, and it’ll keep you warm, too. What’s more, devouring your masterpiece later is another pretty cool benefit of spending some time rustling up some tasty treats. Just remember to save us a slice if you’re making a cake – we’re not really bothered which flavour!
