This post is sponsored by Chevrolet Traverse and I am a Chevrolet owner!
Gosh, it’s crazy to think my kids have already been in school for three weeks. If your children haven’t started back to school yet, I’m sure you don’t have much longer before everyone’s in the back-to-school routine and soon to follow is the fall season. I’m super excited for the fall months and all our family activities.
I’m ready for the fall season because of the colors, smells, and the fun family outings we enjoy. Since fall is right around the corner I thought I would share a few fabulously fun family activities for the fall months. I hope you find a few to add to your family’s fall activities list.
- Pumpkin picking – Look for your nearest pumpkin patch. Load the kids up and let them go pick out their own pumpkin. My daughter always chooses the smaller, most awkwardly shaped pumpkins and complains about it when we get home. It never fails, lol.
- Corn maze – You might have to drive a bit, but getting lost in a corn maze will be worth it. This is one of our favorite fall activities, and if you play your cards right, you can see if they have a free or discounted day to get lost in the corn maze.
- Apple picking – Load a few buckets up in the SUV and go apple picking!
- Leaves & pinecone picking – Drive to a spot with lots of trees and collect leaves and pinecones for all your fun fall crafts and projects.
- Go hiking – Since the days are cooler and the colors and scents are changing, why not take the kids hiking? Load everyone up, grab a few snacks, water, and anything else you’ll need and head for your favorite hiking spot. Don’t have one yet? Find one, go exploring! It’s worth loading all those crazy kids up for a fall family adventure.
- Photography – Get everyone dressed and loaded up so you can take some pictures of the kids playing in the leaves or enjoying the fresh air on a beautiful fall day. You can even spend a little time teaching your kids about photography. You never know, you might have a little photographer running around.
- Head for the outskirts of town – Why not load up and head for the outskirts of town once it gets dark and enjoy watching the stars together? Since it gets darker earlier, it’s something you can even enjoy on a school night.
- Fall picnic at the park – Make some of your family’s favorite fall foods and head out for a picnic at the park together. The weather should be great for the kids to play and the family to enjoy some outside time together.
- Fall festivals – Don’t miss out on any of your local fall festivals.
- DIY Halloween costumes – Looking to save a little money? Why not take the kids to the thrift store and pick out a few things to make their Halloween costumes?
- Day trip – Surprise the family with a day trip to somewhere close.
I’m excited for the fall months, we’re always going and doing something fun, and my husband and I are planning on purchasing a new SUV. We’re still not sure which one we’re going to buy, but it will be a Chevrolet. I am a Chevrolet girl, born and raised! We currently own the below Chevrolet Tahoe, Silverado, an older Suburban and my husband’s racecar, which are all Chevrolet!
My father has worked on cars his whole life and I can honestly say I never remember riding in anything my parents owned that wasn’t a Chevrolet and not a whole lot has changed now that I’m grown. I guess you can say, I come by my love for Chevrolet honestly. Chevrolet has always made excellent vehicles for our family and I’m sure our next SUV will be even better because Chevrolet keeps stepping things up.
The Chevrolet Traverse looks like an excellent option for anyone needing a midsize SUV! Did you know it can seat up to EIGHT people1? WOW, even my family could fit in the Traverse, which honestly surprised me. I thought we were going to have to go with a huge Chevrolet Suburban, which I’m not opposed to, I like them, but the Traverse has exceptional amenities, and it’s super stylish. The 2016 Traverse not only has room for everyone, but also has Smart Slide® second-row seating, which makes getting into the third row easy. There is 116.32 cubic feet of maximum cargo space, including 24.43 cubic feet behind the third-row seats. Oh, and I have to mention the available push-button lift gate that makes loading and unloading easy peasy!
It’s hard not to love the technology that the Traverse offers, especially for those long trips when you need to stay connected. I don’t know about you, but when I’m not the one driving, I enjoy working on road trips because the kids typically fall asleep, it’s quiet, and I can enjoy the scenery. The Traverse has 3 standard USB ports4 to keep everyone connected, and there’s even an available rear-seat entertainment system. The Chevrolet Traverse midsize SUV even offers built-in 4G LTE Wi-Fi®5.
- Side Blind Zone Alert
- Rear Cross Traffic Alert
- Forward Collision Alert

- An industry-first Front Center Air Bag6
And, all these technologies work together to help keep you and your family safe whether you are heading to the store or trying to find your favorite fall hiking spots.
