Jam-packed with events and fun holidays, autumn is our favorite season to be outside and enjoy the color inspiration, fall fashion and crisp air.
Here are a few of our favorite things to do:
“The Fall is my absolute FAVORITE season. In addition to the usual pumpkin carving and Halloween costume party traditions, one of my absolute favorite things to do every October is visit Markoff’s Haunted Forest with my friends. This particular Haunted Forest beats ANY Haunted house/tour/forest/etc I have ever been to. My friends and I love to go out each year, clutching to each other as we frantically make it through the terrifying forest. Even their website is scary!“ – Amanda Butterworth, Senior Director, Creative Services
“It would have to be our annual drive into the Colorado Rockies to view the changing aspen trees – the colors are just delicious! This year we drove over Boreas Pass which takes the route of an old rail bed from Como to the south and drops down into Breckenridge. Breathtaking!” – Martha Kirkpatrick, Director, Member Services

“My favorite fall activity is college football. As many of you know, I am a HUGE Boise State football fan (as an Idahoan) and greatly enjoy watching them trounce the competition on our controversial blue field. In Charlottesville, it’s nice to get out, tailgate, and watch UVA try to hold it together in the ACC.” – Alexandra Gibson, President and CEO

“My favorite part of fall is throwing on my favorite fleece and watching football. Go tigers! (Hampden-Sydney).” – Lolly Rush, Project Manager
“I love visiting Martha’s Vineyard on fall weekends – eating clam chowder, checking out that famous New England foliage, and bundling up to take my dog for a walk on the beach.” – Jessye Aibel, Associate, Social Media & Online PR
