Though September may bring the official start of fall, it’s during October that fall really hits it prime in DC. The cool, crisp air starts slowly creeping in every morning and the colors on the trees slowly start to change. We can stroll across the National Mall without breaking a sweat or running into tourists. 

So get out there, get outside the District lines and see all the different ways to appreciate fall. Here are some of our favorites:

KEEP IT CLASSIC

Now that the heat and humidity have faded away, it’s the perfect time to explore the great outdoors. Throw on that cozy sweater you’ve been dying to break out and head to the National Arboretum or the Sculpture Garden to get some of that fresh fall air. Want a new take on the word classic? Head to All Things Go Fall Classic on October 10 for a full day of tunes from some of today’s biggest names in music.

PICK YOUR FAVORITE

Pumpkins or apples? Whatever your choice, the options on where to go are endless. Don’t want to leave the city? Skip the orchard and hit the fresh produce at Union Market. Want the experience of picking straight from the patch? Uber out to Fairfax County to Cox Farms to get the full experience.

EAT YOUR HEART OUT
