Going to school in north Florida essentially means that there are no signs of seasons for at least a few months after the fall semester begins. No cold air and no colorful leaves until about mid-January when you’re not feeling so “fall” anymore. It’s easy to stay in an endless summer slump, but here are just a few of the many things that you can do to get you in that fall/festive mood:
1. Football Fantasy
An obvious Saturday choice, whether you watch the game on TV or cheer on the Noles at Doak. This Saturday tradition is still going strong. You'll be happy it's a cool November day when the sun is blazing down on you for hours at a time.
2. Cozy Coffee Shops
There is honestly no greater feeling than taking a couple of hours on a Saturday or Sunday to relax in a coffee shop. With some of the trendiest coffee shops right at our fingertips here in Tallahassee, it’s incredibly convenient to do. Grab your favorite book, listen to some great tunes and sip on a drink of your choice (extra points if you choose a Pumpkin Spice Latte). Plus, you can up your Insta aesthetic with a solid coffee photo.
If you’re ever feeling a little confined in your apartment or dorm, take a trip somewhere new for the day. Thomasville is such a cool spot to hang out and there are many amazing stores and restaurants to try (Definitely stop at Grassroots for a yummy lunch and/or latte). The tiny streets and quiet feel of the town bring about that seasonal feel.
4. Head to the pumpkin patch.
You are NEVER too old for the pumpkin patch. And you are never too old to carve a pumpkin with your best pals. That being said, there are so many different places to get a good pumpkin in Tallahassee, believe it or not. Grab one and become feel like an instant Pumpkin Picasso (after a good few hours of hard work and carving).
5. Go to the Theatre
This is seriously one of the best ways to get into the spirit of fall after Halloween time. There’s always a good horror movie that gets released at this time that may give you a laugh…or a good scare. You can even stay in the comfort of your home and watch classics like Scream with endless amounts of candy and treats.
