The 10 Things Everyone In Twin Falls Needs To Do Before The Weather Turns
Weather changes quickly in Twin Falls. We have created the ultimate fall bucket list that you have to do before the weather gets really cold and you can't do them anymore.
Idaho has some beautiful places to go and see the changing leaves. There is even a map you can use to determine the best times to go to certain places to see the peak of the fall colors in the leaves. Fall is one of the most beautiful times of the year.
One More Kayak Trip
Even if you just head down to Centennial and get one last kayaking trip or boating trip in. You definitely need to get that last trip in because we have no idea how long winter is going to be this year. And it is just comfortable enough not to be freezing or too hot.
There are a lot of orchards around here where you can go pick your own apples. This time of year is perfect. Whether you want something tart like Granny Smith or sweet like Pink Lady's you need to get some apples.
Jump In A Pile Of Leaves
There is something so satisfying about jumping into a pile of leaves. Yes, you are going to have to rake them up all over again, but the satisfaction is totally worth it. Also, make sure you rake the leaves up because they can be dangerous.
Check Out A Corn Or Straw Maze
Or check them all out. We have so many of them all over the area. Magic Valley Corn Maze, Burley Straw Maze, and the list go on and on. Definitely check out at least one before it gets too cold.
Check out one of the many haunted attractions around the area. The Haunted Mansions of Albion is a lot of fun. The Haunted Swamp and Haunted Forest are great as well. They even have special nights for kids that don't want to be too scared.
Go To Oktoberfest
Oktoberfest is coming up in Twin Falls and it is always a lot of fun. Food, family fun, petting zoo, face painting, and of course, beer. The Oktoberfest in Downtown Twin Falls is a huge event that shuts down Main Street.
Put Up Your Christmas Lights
Hear me out on this one. It is the perfect time to put up your Christmas lights. It is the safest time to get on the ladder without having to deal with ice and slipping. It isn't ridiculously cold. It is much easier. Even if you don't turn them on, you should get them up.
Blow Out Your Sprinklers
Make sure you get those sprinklers blown out so you don't get caught with a broken line from the freezing water. It is nice that you can virtually put up your yard care tools. Just make sure you don't break things in the process.
Check Your Heat Source
Whether that is a chimney or your furnace, make sure everything is good to go before that big first freeze. Chimneys should be swept to avoid fires. Furnaces can be tuned up and taken care of. Don't get caught in the cold.
