The season of apple cider donuts, haunted trails, cozy sweaters, and pumpkin spice is upon us! There’s nothing quite like the season of fall, and DC is full of things to see and do!
The weather is warm enough that you can spend all day sipping glasses of vino on a rooftop deck yet with enough chill to enough a mug of mulled wine. Spooky season also means activities like ghost tours, and Halloween costume shopping are back, which we can collectively agree is one of the best things about fall.
So, from vibrant foliage to festivals and free and interactive museums to explore, we've scouted a ton of awesome things (40+!) to do this month. Outdoor movies, Porchfest and Porchfest SE music crawls, salsa under the stars, Alma Thomas happy hour, hike and hops, and more!
How you like them apples?
Put down the daiquiri and step away from the rosé. With summer in the rearview, our sipping sights are set on pumpkin beer, hot toddies and the most beloved fall libation of all, hard cider.
Cider has become popular in DC with several cideries springing up in recent years offering refreshing and unique flavors. Here's what you can expect to find at the four locations in the city when you're ready for a hard cider taste test.
No tricks, just treats--we've done all the spooky planning for you!

Be one with nature
Sweater weather is approaching, and with it gorgeous fall foliage that lures you into wanting to spend more time outside before we hibernate for the winter. Before coronavirus made social distancing a priority, local hiking trails were already go-to spots for respite from city crowds. Luckily, we have some suggestions where you can have the best of both worlds: great views and solitude. Here are seven options in DC.
Fun and (mostly!) free ideas to get you out and about!
We love DC, but to be honest, our commitment is tested during the heat and humidity of its infamous summers, ugh. So we rejoice when temperatures start to dip and a cup of PSL becomes a standard accessory.
There's always a lot to do in the District and it's even better in the fall! From ghosts and ghouls, reopened museums, pop-up wineries and colorful murals, we've rounded up some of the best things to do right now, whether you're a local or just visiting.
Who you gonna call?
Washington D.C. is best known for being the center of politics in the United States but it’s definitely contender for one of the most haunted places in the world. Tales of haunted houses and hotels, even a demon cat, are as plentiful as special interest lobbyists.
But are these ghostly stories true? Well, that's for you to decide.
But with Halloween approaching, what better way to celebrate than with a tour of the 10 scariest places in the DMV, whether you believe the legends or not? But beware -- these haunted locations aren't for the faint of heart.
Did someone say cider doughnuts? Get ready for this fall tradition with corn mazes, hayrides and more!
You can feel it in the air . . . fall is almost here!
It's absolutely my favorite season! I LOVE the changing leaves, the return of pumpkin spice everything and the falling temperatures. I'm sooo over DC’s heat and humidity. I also have very fond memories of visiting my godfather in Michigan and picking pumpkins and crisp, delicious apples at a neighboring farm.
Luckily, you don’t have to go all the way to Michigan to experience this fabulous fall tradition. You can find plenty of pumpkins and apples at the always incredible Eastern Market or one of the many local farmers markets, but there are many legit farms within driving distance where you can pick your own pumpkins and apples for a real-deal farm experience.
Whether you're looking for a family-friendly experience with hayrides and other bells and whistles, or a no frills farm visit, you'll find the perfect one to visit from the six we've scouted.
Did we forget your favorite? Let us know!
