Make way for the falling leaves and savor the pre-holiday chaos with help from our favorite things to do in Autumn. It should go without saying that we encourage you to bring your favorite bud along the way.
Southern California holds various campsites and grounds, even glamping-style sites for a more luxurious experience. A few reasons to camp during the fall include lower temperatures, fewer crowds, more minor bugs, and more reasons to cuddle up with a warm blanket after a well-needed sesh.
Although Los Angeles doesn’t come close to the wonderous fall colors of places like Vermont, the region displays rather beautiful foliage. Take in the colors at Oak Glen and Big Bear or closer-to-home locations like Los Angeles’ many botanical gardens.
The end of summer doesn’t mean the end of the drive-in season, as various pop-ups are continuing their schedules through October. Catch your favorite films at places like San Fernando Valley Drive-In, Late Night Drive-In, or for a limited time, Huluween Drive-In.
Instead of buying a boring ol’ pumpkin at your local store, visit a pumpkin patch and make the day of it. Los Angeles has many patches for all ages that include petting zoos and wagon rides. Before you head over, various pumpkin patches this year require reservations or only offer curbside service, so make sure to plan.
Nothing says fall like apple picking, even in sunny Los Angeles. From September through November, you can visit the Oak Glen area, where blossoming fruits are waiting to be picked. Feel free to eat the apple straight from the tree or take it home for seasonal ciders and pies.
That fly you just swatted was actually RuPaul, "you better buzz b*tch."
Take a seat, grab a cannabis-infused drink, and stay awhile.
