Fall doesn’t stick around for long in Colorado. Leaves change from green to red, and then immediately get buried beneath the snow. So, if you’re looking to get the most out of autumn in Colorado, you have to act quickly to get a lot in, in a short amount of time. Here’s our guide to Colorado fall in a week:
The sun is a little softer, the night a little sooner, warmth is fading, leaves are beginning to turn, and with the onset of autumn we must pack up our flip-flops and swimsuits and say farewell to summer. Here to ease your transition from season to season, is a list we’ve compiled of summer to fall activities, read below to see how to make the most of these shortening days.
We know that summer nights are hard to say goodbye to, but just because sunlight is fading quicker doesn’t mean you have to give up evening activities. Grab some friends for an evening of bowling, or better yet glow in the dark golf. There are ways to work around darker evenings, you just have to be creative.
It can be difficult to cut back on your vitamin D, especially after spending an entire summer cruising down the Yampa River, and it’s important to give your body time to acclimate. Gradually give up your afternoons at the park for a walk around your favorite bookstore, or art museum. Transition your weekend activities from endless sunshine, to respites inside. Although it’s important to make the most of your summer, there’s nothing wrong with finding a balance between outside and in.
Un-box Your Fall Décor
Autumn is a season of copper-tones and teakettles. Say goodbye to summer by getting excited about fall. Bring your old sweaters and boots to the forefront of your closet, splurge on a pine scented candle, or new coffee mug. Small items around your house reminding you of the best parts of fall will help ease your transition.
Summer can be chaotic. With an endless litany of backyard barbecues, concerts, pool parties and day trips, it can be hard to squeeze in things you need to do. We’ve all heard of spring-cleaning, but as we shift from summer to fall, now is the perfect time to purge. De-clutter your garage, clear out the no-man’s land beneath your bed, and donate old, worn clothes. Take the time to make room for a more productive you.
Don’t Let Go of The Best Parts of Summer
Often the most difficult part about saying goodbye to summer is saying goodbye to your friends. As fall approaches the open houses dwindle, the movie nights, and fire pits fade and we often find ourselves isolated during the cooler months. When it gets dark out earlier it’s easy to justify nights in watching TV, but you’ll find that you can take a little piece of summer with you by staying social through the fall. At Wishlist we offer plenty of group, evening activities that make for the perfect outing for you and a couple of friends.
