Cheap fall outings

Whether looking for a fun date idea or a day with your friends or fam, Fall is full of cute and fun things to do, without breaking the bank! Give a few of our faves a read and let us know what you think 🙂

Apple picking

Obviously apple picking is key to a good Autumn season. There are tons of places around Toronto to pick some yummy apples, try some baked apple goods, and get those insta-worthy pics. 

Pumpkin patch 

Check out one of the GTA’s many awesome pumpkin patches. Often complete with corn mazes and pumpkin treats, BlogTO has a great list of them here. 

Pumpkins after dark

On in Milton until November 3, go on a tour of over 5000 incredibly carved Jack-o-lanterns!

Make pies

Everyone loves pie, and sure they are great all year round, but fall is pretty much pie season and we all know that. Make a delicious pumpkin pie or a glorious apple crumble. It’s fun and delicious. 

Carve Pumpkins

Once you’re done picking your pumpkins from the patch, and you’ve been inspired by the Pumpkins After Dark, why not take a crack at it yourself! Go with a basic smiley and triangle eyes, or try something more advanced and use a stencil. Make sure to lay down some newspaper – this gets messy!

Watch a Halloween movie

There’s nothing better than curling up with your date or your gals on the couch to watch a good Halloween movie. If you’re not into scary movies at all (like me) check out our list of Non-scary Halloween movies!

Haunted walk or tour

A haunted walk or tour is a GREAT way to get into the Halloween spirit this fall. They have them throughout Toronto and also in lots of other parts of the GTA such as Hamilton and Niagara

Coffee shop

This is basic, but one of my favourite things to do in fall is discover new coffee shops to sit and either work or read in (actually that’s what i’m doing right now!). Grab a magazine or your latest gossip and discover your local coffee shops with your peeps. 

Friday Night Live @ the ROM

From October 4 to November 29, the ROM comes alive on Friday nights. With music, food, and some hella cool themes, for $20 you can spend a Friday night like never before. 

Nuit Blanche – October 5

Nuit Blanche is an all night art show throughout the entire city that happens every year in October,  and it’s awesome!! Grab a group and a jacket and walk through the city’s coolest art exhibits. It’s free and so so fun. 

Stratford festival

A little bit out of the city, head up to Stratford for the Stratford festival to see some awesome shows. 


Both free and fun, Bonfire’s are a classic fall activity. Make some s’mores, drink some boozy hot apple cider, and enjoy. 

Rocky Horror Picture Show

Whether you want to see it live at Lower Ossington Theatre or Hart House theatre, or watch the movie at Hot Docs, Rocky Horror is a classic Halloween/fall flick full of interactive moments and iconic songs. 

Walk in the park 

Yes, you can walk in the park any time of year, but fall is particularly beautiful. Head over to one of the city’s many many parks to see the gorgeous red and orange leaves as they change colour before your eyes. 

Legends of Horror at Casa Loma 

A little more on the pricy side if you’re looking to splurge ($40) is the Legends of Horror haunted house at Casa Loma. Walk through the gorgeous castle grounds as they become haunted and creepy. Though it’s $40, the hour long haunted trip is worth it. 

Hopefully this list served as some inspiration to start your fall bucket list. Happy haunting everyone!

Love always,
