Fall may be the season that appeals most to ALL our senses: the taste of a just-picked apple, the sound of dry leaves rustling beneath our feet, the sight of vibrant colors on the trees, the smell of a pumpkin pie baking in the oven, the feel of a cool breeze against the skin.
Sensory experiences and memory form strong bonds (Nature). That makes fall a great time for creating new memories and for summoning joyful ones from the past.
Though there are many ways to experience your own personal Fallapalooza at home, here's a list of local and not-too-far-away opportunities to stimulate your fall sensory experience:
