While pumpkin may be the *flavor of fall*, there’s another flavor that gives us all the flannel feels >> apple! ++ while pumpkin picking is a fun fall activity [we expect to see a lot of Bolt Pumpkins ; )] — apple picking tops pumpkin picking in our books [reason being — you can eat AS MANY apples as you want while you pick!].
There truly is nothing better than biting into the *perfect apple* in the fall, especially when you hand-pick it yourself from a local apple orchard. Not to mention — apple picking can boost your serotonin levels from being outdoors, it’s easy to do as a group activity [or as a date!], + it will even give your arms + legs a little burn from walking uphill + reaching for those apples ; ).
