Fall Fun: How to Enjoy Your Florida Backyard This Season

Fall-Fun-How-to-Enjoy-Your-Florida-Backyard-This-Season

In a great backyard, there are great autumn activities for everyone

Now that autumn has finally arrived, you might find yourself looking for new ways to celebrate the season while enjoying your backyard. And in South Florida, it’s a lot easier than in many areas of the country – we’re lucky enough to experience some of the mildest weather the States have to offer, year-round.

1. Camping

Although the weather stays relatively warm, fall is still a great time to go camping in your backyard. You don’t need to worry about waking up to the unfortunate surprise of a frosty, freezing morning like those poor suckers up north. Plus, there are fewer pests out this time of year. And best of all, the ground is finally drying up after the summer rainy season, so you won’t wake up in a puddle.

2. Stargazing

Speaking of the rainy season, those clouds never make for great stargazing. But the end of summer rains means the skies are bound to be crystal clear. Your long wait is over — fall is just the right time of year to spot those shooting stars and constellations!

3. Hanging by the pool

Yes, you read that right. Like we said, we get to experience some of the mildest temperatures throughout the year, which means our fall activities look pretty different than those found across the States. South Florida residents are lucky enough to enjoy our pools well into the season. So splash on in, especially now that the sun’s back out in the early afternoon.

4. Backyard BBQ

While everyone up north will soon be packing up their grills, we’re just getting started. So, round up your friends, grab some fresh ingredients, and whip up a few of your favorites. From smoky barbecue to healthy grilled chicken breasts (and everything in between), your endless summer is just beginning this autumn.

5. Haunted Halloween maze

Your backyard is the perfect place to build a creepy Halloween maze for your neighborhood’s trick-or-treaters and any of their adventurous parents. Before you pass out candy, allow the thrill-seekers to find their way through your spooky backyard maze. You’re sure to be the talk of the town!

6. Outdoor Thanksgiving

Celebrate the season in style: enjoy Thanksgiving with your family outdoors. You’ll experience mild weather and a fresh breeze under the sun, while eating all your classic favorites: the turkey, cranberry sauce, pumpkin pie, and mashed potatoes just taste better outside.

But keep your friends and family free from outdoor pests!
