4 Fun Outdoor Activities for Apartment Living in the Fall

You know it’s the beginning of fall when the leaves begin to change from green to vibrant hues of orange and red, and the temperature begins to cool. It’s the perfect season to spend time outdoors with friends and family, and it provides opportunities for lots of fall-related activities and festivities. 

When you live in an apartment complex, there can be many fall-related activities to participate in, as well as different opportunities to help you get outside before the weather gets too cold. Apartment living can help boost time spent outside for almost nine or so months of the year, depending on the various amenities and locations each apartment community offers.

Here are 4 fun outdoor activities for people living in apartment communities to try out this fall.

Pet-friendly activities 

Since your pet needs frequent exercise, you’ll want to get outside to give them the exercise they need to stay active. If your apartment complex is pet-friendly, then there are probably ample opportunities for you to get outside and explore with your pup. 

Some apartment communities have dog parks, where you can take your dog for a walk and even let them run around and play fetch. Pet-friendly apartment complexes usually offer fenced-in areas that are secure and safe play areas for pets. Our “Woof Top” provides an outdoor area where owners and their pets can get fresh air and exercise or the Loop which provides a half-mile trail for longer distance walking.  

Local seasonal festivities

Apartment complexes can be in areas that provide fun activities during different seasons. Especially during the fall, you can find activities like selecting pumpkins at a local pumpkin patch or picking apples at a nearby orchard. These are enjoyable activities for families to participate in, particularly during the fall season.

The Long Grove Historic Village, located near Lincolnshire, offers festivities during different seasons of the year. During October, they have celebrations like Scarecrow Day, where people make scarecrows, and Halloween Town, where children can trick or treat. In November they have Vintage Holidays, an event for those who want to shop for holiday decorations or presents. 

Outdoor fitness activities 

Many apartment complexes can have amenities like communal areas for outdoor activities. These types of areas can help people stay fit and provide entertainment for outdoor enthusiasts. People also like to use outdoor fitness areas to walk their dogs, or even to train for athletic races, like triathlons.

Outdoor fitness activities you could try out include trails for running, walking, or bicycle riding. Games including shuffleboard.  We have a community dock, and if you are feeling adventurous, you can check out our shared kayaks. 

Seasonal barbecuing and grilling

Apartment complexes can offer places for you and your family and friends to hang out when the weather is nice outside. Lots of apartment communities have communal grills and fire pits available for use. You can try out new recipes while enjoying your time grilling outdoors. You could also invite people to roast s’mores over a fire pit.

During the fall, there are lots of football games, which means, if you’re a fan, you’ll want to invite people over to watch your favorite team play. Gatherings for football games, or for any other reason, are great occasions to barbecue or roast food over an open flame. You can choose to watch the game in our Social room, which has sliding doors that completely open to the outside so that you can enjoy both the game and the fall weather.
