5 Fall Things to Do in the Shuswap
If you love fall as much as I do, I am sure you are building a bucket list of all the fall-like things that will make you feel like you live in Stars Hallow. Today I present to you my top five fall things to do in the Shuswap. I will certainly be doing all of them!
1. Visit the Pumpkin Patches.
This is a huge must. Trust me when I tell you that picking out your own pumpkin from the patch is so much better than at the grocery store. If you are local to Salmon Arm, Harpur Farm has an amazing family-friendly patch complete with hayrides and an amazing photo set up area. If you are looking for something bigger, Davison Orchards has a huge operation complete with apples, pumpkins, animals, kids area & amazing treats. Another option in Salmon Arm is DeMille’s
2. Get Cozy
Stop at one of the local shops in the area and pick up some goods to make your house the perfect oasis. These Natura Soy Candles make the perfect fall scents, and you can get them locally at Blush + Blossom Boutique Spa. On Alex is another local shop in Salmon Arm and she carries all the goods to help you get cozy! Toques, socks, bath products, blankets & more. I always buy my So Luxury bath products from there and it always makes me feel a little bit better about spending so much time inside.
3. Pariticpate in commuinty events.
Fall always feels like the time for connection. In the Shuswap especially, the fall is the time when the tourists go home and the locals get back into their regular routine. One of the events I am most looking forward to is Applefest, which is an annual event held downtown Salmon Arm. It is a chance to celebrate the agriculture in Salmon Arm as well as showcase some local vendors in our community! We will be participating this year as a vendor and would love to see you there. We are selling our hand drawn maps, postcards & stickers!
4. Family photo time
Fall is the best time to get family photos done because with the cool breeze, coloured leaves & cozy outfits, you really can’t go wrong. If you want to book a session with us, send us a message.
5. Consume all things pumpkin.
This one you can do from wherever you live! Make yourself a pumpkin scone, pick up a pumpkin spice latte, and enjoy the season of pumpkin-flavoured everything.
