Fall Has Arrived! (Okay, almost!)

Hey there!

Tomorrow is the first day of Fall which is by far my favorite season. Let’s be honest, the weather is much nicer, the foliage is gorgeous, and there is so much to do! I am here to inform you of such things to do whether it be in Lowell or the surrounding cities and states. 

Apple Picking and apple pie making! Apple picking is my absolute favorite thing to do in the fall. I can very easily eat 3 apples in the process of apple picking. Luckily there are a bunch of apple orchards in the area so you can go out with a bunch of friends and make a day out of it!

Pumpkin related items! Pumpkins go hand in hand with apples. Most of the time you can find pumpkins at apple orchards or even grocery stores. Another awesome thing is that you can find a lot of pumpkin carving stencils online for free or little money. Remember to keep the seeds so you can roast them!

Close by orchards include Mack’s Apples in Londonderry, NH, Parlee Farms in Tyngsboro, MA, and Mann Orchards in Methuen, MA.

Salem Witches! Okay, I lied when I said that apple picking was my favorite thing to do in the fall, the Salem witches are by far my favorite. Grab a couple friends some Sunday and head down to Salem, MA. My favorite attractions? The witch museum, the pirate museum, and the House of the Seven Gables. Other favorite? Ruth’s Italian ice in the mall! They have Swedish Fish Italian ice, it is amazing! Click here! for more information of all the events in Salem.

Trick or Treating / Costumes! The university offers “Safe Zone Trick or Treating” in Sheehy and Concordia. You can stand outside your room and hand out candy or participate in the haunted house in the Concordia basement. Keep your eyes peeled on all the school bulletin boards for more information.

Foliage! Pack a picnic and take a ride up to New Hampshire or anywhere through Massachusetts and take a good look at the changing colors of leaves. Pretty soon those leaves will be gone and we’ll be waiting for snow (hopefully not too soon)!

Beginning Hockey Games! The first hockey game of the season is October 3 at 3 p.m. versus New Brunswick at the Tsongas Center! It’ll be a good time for all! Check out our athletic site for the complete hockey schedule here!

I hope this inspires a lot of you to get out there and do something (when you aren’t busy with homework)!

Tell us if you’ve gone to any of these places or plan on it!
