My 2021 Fall Bucket List in Upstate NY

Fall is the absolute best in NY and has easily become my favorite season! I love the weather, the outfits, the festivities, and the cozy feel of it all. I always have so many things I want to do this season and I am so ready to take full advantage of it! The weather has already started to cool down here (low 70s, YAY) which has made me so so happy. I think I'm the most excited to finally dress in fall clothes again if I'm being honest. Jeans, sweaters, booties, are just my favorite outfits and I love mix and matching them all season long.

I used to get super overwhelmed in the fall because it felt like there were so many things I was supposed to be doing all season. On top of that, I felt super frustrated seeing so many people on social media doing all the fall things. I have always loved adventures but aren't the best at actually making a plan and doing things. I started making bucket lists/general lists of specific things I wanted to do in a particular season, on a certain trip, etc. to hold myself accountable to actually do them!


The last few years I have really loved fall and I now love going on Instagram, finding cute pumpkin patches in my local area, seeing fall drinks to get at Starbucks, and getting ideas for fall photos to take!


I've put together a list of all the things I'm looking forward to this fall and am super excited to share it with you today! I've already had an insane amount of pumpkin drinks from Starbucks and Dunkin so I've really been in the fall spirit since I came back from my Disney trip on August 15th lol! With that being said, there are so many other things that I can't wait to do over the next few months that make this season that much more magical!


Here are my Fall Must-Do's in 2021:

  1. Visit a Pumpkin Patch

  2. Go apple picking.

  3. Make pumpkin cream cheese muffins again... this recipe is so irresistable.

  4. Watch Hocus Pocus and Halloweentown

  5. Take photos at a pumpkin patch

  6. Get apple cider and donuts from a pumpkin patch

  7. Go on a super fall-ish date

  8. Perfect my Starbucks pumpkin coffee order

  9. Take some cozy flatlay's for Instagram

  10. Watch Gilmore Girls for the first time

I already have visited 2 pumpkin patches but there are so many more I'm planning on visiting before October 31st!! So don't be surprised if you see me at more soon, haha.
