Keep on an eye on your watch. Don’t miss a hayride at sunset.
2. Indulge in Fall Foliage

Take a look at your watch once in a while. Mark the moment. It’s special.
3. Vineyard Splendor
Vineyards go all out in the “ber months.” October or November are some of the best times of year to stop in for splendid wine-tasting. Good food, a gorgeous setting, and great company. Make sure you save enough time to stroll the grounds. Glance at your watch. Those extra minutes of mindful? Totally worth it.

There are festivals every weekend. Check your local happenings to find food and drink fests with wine and craft beer galore, pumpkin fests, music fests, and enough arts and crafts shows and farmer’s markets to get you in the mood for good times and gourds.
