Summer may be coming to a close, but that doesn’t mean that the good times can’t keep on rolling. The new season means new adventures – check out StorQuest’s list of awesome things to do outside this fall.
1) Trout Fishing in Montana
Six days. Remote wilderness. World-renowned fly fishing. What better way to get out and soak up the season than to immerse yourself? Book this wild adventure with Frontiers, a premier excursion company in southwestern Montana. By day, you’ll cruise down multiple rivers, learning different fishing strategies and catching some of the best trout fishing you can find. By night, you’ll stay in a private cabin at Big Hole Lodge looking over the Wise River Valley. All you need to do is bring yourself and your polarized sunglasses. The rest of your gear will be provided for you!
2) Explore the Florida Keys
Fall brings the end of hurricane season for the Florida Keys – and with it, cooler temps, calmer waves, and fewer crowds. This is the perfect time to discover the Keys firsthand from the water. Bring the kayak or blow up your paddleboard and wind through Florida's unique ecosystem in the mangrove tunnels. Throw on your fins and explore the world below the surface with a snorkel sesh off Higgs Beach. Pull out your diving gear and check out the Vandenberg, a 520-foot shipwreck just 7 miles off the coast.
3) Live Large in Big Bend
Big Bend National Park in Texas – where the sky is just as big as the adventure. Fall marks the end of triple-digit temperatures and the start of the best season for exploration. Whether it’s a day hike to the highest point in the park, Emory Peak, or a multi-day rafting trip down the Rio Grande, you’re sure to quench your thirst for new experiences here. For a little extra inspiration, check out these top-rated things to do in Texas' huge wilderness playground.
4) Soak Up Southern Utah
For an equally majestic and epic fall vacay, you can’t miss Southern Utah’s iconic national parks. Bryce Canyon is home to amazing horseback riding, mountain biking, and ATV tours, with a backdrop of other-worldly red rock hoodoos. Natural arches, narrow canyons, and hidden waterfalls scatter across Zion. To experience it all, you’ll want to pack your camping stuff, then rock climb, hike, or canyoneer to your heart’s content.
5) Bike the Back Roads of Vermont
Can’t get enough miles under your tires? How about a bikepacking trip in Vermont’s desolate Northeast Kingdom? Over 2,000 square miles of rolling hills, quiet backroads, and lush forests make this trip one for the books. Your ride here is completely customizable. Pack up your road bike and stick to the streets with a multi-day adventure or break out your mountain bike and quickly roam the unpaved roads to Big Falls, the best waterfall in the region.
