With October behind us, winter is coming.

Before it gets too cold to frolic outside and adventure without wearing parkas… here is a list to make sure you’re covering all your bases this year in enjoying the fall weather:

1. Apple Picking

Not only will you get those ~basic~ instas and a new profile picture… but you will also get apple cider, cider doughnuts and all the apples you could want.

Check out Honey Pot Hill Orchards –

Also, Connors Farm in Danvers, MA –

2. Visit a Pumpkin Patch!

Whether you take one home and carve it, or just adventure… it’s a fun way to take a break from your school routine. (Bonus points for drinking Starbucks out of their holiday cup at the same time).

3. Salem, MA

While this is the hub for Halloween, Salem is fun year round. There is so much history here, great places to eat and it’s only a quick ride on the Commuter Rail that leaves from North Station.

4. Be the first one on the ice

Skating at the Frog Pond is a Boston staple. It’s cheap to do, a fun way to get off campus and it’s a nice way to transition into the upcoming winter months.

5. Coolidge Corner Theatre

My favorite place to catch a movie in the Greater Boston Area. They have fun events to attend, they replay older films and they also play the latest movies.  The theatre is gorgeous and in a fun area to explore.

Hope this helps!
