Fall has arrived, bringing with it sweater weather, colorful foliage, and festive décor. Whether you love watching the leaves change or already find yourself in the Halloween spirit, there are plenty of wheelchair accessible ways to enjoy the season:

  1. Take a drive to check out some breathtaking fall foliage: This could mean sticking to your own neighborhood with a drive around the block or could be a good excuse to take a road trip! Check out this interactive 2020 Fall Foliage Prediction Map to see when the best dates are to catch peak color in your area.
  2. Try a new recipe: There’s never been a better time to fine-tune those chili spices or test out an apple pie recipe. Feeling adventurous? Try creating a new dessert completely from scratch!
  3. Get a head start on your Halloween costume: Trick-or-treating may not be in everyone’s plan this year but that doesn’t mean you have to skip the fun of choosing a costume. Click here to see how you can create your own spooky ensemble.
  4. Create fall-themed décor: Put those Pinterest skills to work by constructing a fall wreath using just a grapevine wreath base, bunches of your favorite autumn flowers, and a glue gun. Or grab some mason jars, spray paint, and stencils to create a fall-themed centerpiece.
  5. Watch a scary movie: Drive-in theaters are making a comeback in 2020. Check with your local drive-in to see if any horror flicks will be coming to their big screen in October. If you would rather stay home as the weather gets chillier, try a virtual movie marathon with friends or loved ones.
  6. Carve pumpkins: A fall classic! Grocery stores in your area may have pumpkins available if there are no open pumpkin patches near you. Take one home and carve away!

Of course, the possibilities are endless for accessible fall activities. Luckily, there’s something for everyone, from those who prefer staying cozy at home to those who want to take in some fresh air outdoors!
