It’s the annual slide into autumn. The leaves are changing color, the air is getting crisp and pumpkin spice everything is back on store shelves. That can mean only one thing: it’s time to say goodbye to summer and hello to autumn.

Although saying goodbye to those long, lazy days of summer vacation can be bittersweet, there’s a lot to look forward to in the fall.
From cozy fireside nights spent watching Netflix to days spent apple picking and hiking in the crisp autumn air, there’s something for everyone to enjoy.
Here are just a few of the reasons why we think autumn is the best season of the year.
The Joyful Slide Into Autumn

Not too hot and not too cold, autumn weather is just right. And what’s more, you can actually enjoy being outside without breaking a sweat
- Whether you’re going for a walk in the park or taking a hike in the mountains, autumn is the perfect time to get some fresh air and appreciate nature. Just be sure to pack a light jacket, as the evenings can get chilly.
