Just like many other people, fall is my favourite season #Basic. I’ve talked about it a few times already this season so I won’t get into why, but instead I am sharing with you an awesome list of fun things to do for fall. Some of them are fun things to go out to do like a corn maze or pumpkin patch, others are more frugal things you can do for fall around town, and then some you can do in the comfort of your own home. Get ready to add to your fall bucket lists!
Places to Visit This Fall
#1 Navigate a Corn Maze
It can be a lot of fun going out and navigating a corn maze with family and friends. If you’re in Victoria I highly recommend checking out Pendray Farms, it’s huge! It can get really muddy so make sure to bring your gumboots and a flashlight to see in the dark.
#2 Visit a Pumpkin Patch and Carve Pumpkins
Pick out your very own pumpkin and take it back to your house for some fun pumpkin carving. Some popular pumpkin patches in Victoria are:
#3 Visit a Haunted House
Get spooked visiting a haunted house this fall. Monsters Haunted House at the pier is super popular here in Victoria.
#4 Go On a Ghost Tour
Get cozied up and go on a fun ghost tour around the city. Discover the Past has Ghostly Walks at different areas of the city throughout October.

#5 Go Candle Shopping
Get your house ready for fall by doing some candle shopping! Wild and Free Organics has some uh-mazing candles. They’re completely natural, pesticide and phthalate free, non-GMO, and made with wood wicks so you can burn your candle worry free knowing that no crazy chemicals are polluting the air of your home.
On a side note, once you start doing research into what burning candles can release in the air it gets seriously scary. That’s why I’ve started leaning towards diffusing essential oils, instead of burning candles, but these candles are totally safe. Let me know in the comments below if you’re interested in a blog post about it.
Frugal Things To Go Out And Do This Fall
#6 Go Stargazing
Pack up your blankets, and maybe an air mattress, and go stargazing. You’ll also want to bring a thermos full of warm drinks too! You’ll need to find a place that is completely away from any blaring city lights. Although it can be hard to actually achieve this around the city, these are some of the best places for stargazing in Victoria:
- Fort Rod Hill
- Cattle Point
- Thetis Lake
- Ten Mile Point
- Metchosin Cricket Field (behind the Metchosin Fire Hall)
#7 Visit a Farm
Explore a local farm, or a farmers market and get some fresh farm to table vegetables.
#8 Go On a Hike
Go on a hike and see the beautiful changing colours. Some of my favourite places to hike around Victoria are:
- Goldstream Tressel
- Mount Wells
- Mount Doug
- East Sooke Park
#9 Go Puddle Jumping
Play like a kid again and have fun in a storm. Go puddle jumping and play in the wind. Just make sure to dry off and warm up as soon as you get home!
#10 Have a Fall Photoshoot Playing in Leaves
Capture the fun of jumping in piles of leaves with a fun fall photoshoot.
