Sheridan Wyoming residents agree that fall is one of the best seasons. The foliage is breathtaking, and the temperature is perfect for your favorite fuzzy sweater and jeans. The season is filled with wonderful sights, sounds, and scents. If you’re looking for fun fall activities in Sheridan Wyoming, we’ve got you covered.
What’s fall without a pumpkin or two on your front porch? Pop in a scary movie and gather up your friends and family members for a night of pumpkin carving and baking. The seeds are delicious roasted, and you can turn the flesh into a tasty bread or pie.
Put your hiking boots on and fill your backpack with granola bars and bottled water. Fall is the perfect time to hike through Bighorn National Forest. You’ll enjoy the colorful leaves and rushing streams as you walk or bike the scenic trails.
Fall is filled with beautiful changes. Grab your camera and capture some snapshots of your favorite fall foliage. You don’t have to travel all over Sheridan to do this – you might be surprised by how many photo ops you find in your own backyard. Post the pics in an online photo album, or spend a day compiling them in your very own fall scrapbook.
A bonfire is the perfect excuse to socialize and eat yummy food as the temperature drops. Roasted marshmallows are an absolute must-have, so get creative and experiment with a few new types of s’mores. We hear that peanut butter cups are a great substitute for the typical Hershey’s bar.
Slow Cooker Meals
If the cool weather has you craving hearty meals, dig out your slow cooker and make a batch of homemade soup. Bonus points for using fresh fall produce, such as carrots, onions, parsnips, and cabbage.
Fall is the perfect time to test out all those recipes that you’ve been saving for months. Pumpkin and zucchini bread are tasty treats to try, and you can’t go wrong with any type of cookie. It would be a perfect time to try the amazing Chocolate Cupcakes from Miss in the Kitchen. The heat from the oven will help keep your house warm, and who doesn’t like cutting utility costs?
Scary Movie Night
If the cool weather makes you want to stay inside in your favorite pajamas, host a movie night at your home. You can watch one each weekend, or plan an all night movie viewing marathon. Don’t forget the popcorn!
Fall Fashion Swap
Sick of your brown suede boots? Trade them for something you actually like. Invite a group of friends over for a fall fashion swap. Have each person bring handbags, shoes, sweaters, jeans, and anything else they want to get rid of. At the end of your party, each lady should model her favorite new outfit.
The cool autumn weather is ideal for outdoor activities. Plan a scavenger hunt for your friends, family, or neighborhood. Have each participant find different fall items, such as a red leaf or a bag of pumpkin seeds.
Who says that yard sales are just for summer? Get to know your neighbors – and get rid of some unwanted junk – by having a garage sale. Sell cups of warm apple cider and pumpkin spice muffins instead of the typical fruit drinks and cookies.
