You have survived the hot summer weather, and maybe you’re ready for a change of seasons. Fall is in the air, and that means football games, Halloween and cool weather. It’s a great time of year to be on a healthcare travel assignment. Take advantage of working as a traveler in the autumn and consider some of the following ways to enjoy the season. 

  1. Pick a Pumpkin: Pumpkin patches are not just for kids. Regardless of what part of the country you are in, there are bound to be pumpkin patches during the month of October. Take a hayride or just walk around and find the best pumpkin to carve, paint or just sit on your doorstep.
  2. Throw a Halloween Party: When else could you dress up as anything you want and not get funny looks? OK you still may get funny looks, but Halloween is a fun time of year to throw a party, get in costume and get to know your fellow healthcare travelers or new coworkers.
  3. See a Football Game: Fall means football season. Whether you’re a big fan or have never been to a game, consider going to see a football game in your new town. You might get in the spirit of things and find a new love for the game.
  4. Go Apple Picking:  Autumn is the perfect time of year to head out to a local farm and go apple picking. Lots of farms have extra activities during this time of the year, such as Halloween events and autumn celebrations.
  5. Attend a Local Oktoberfest, Harvest Festival or Thanksgiving Celebration:  Explore your new city or town and find out what festivals are annual traditions. Try attending something new.
  6. Check out the Fall Foliage: The vibrancy of the autumn leafs may vary depending on what part of the country you’re in. In some areas, the fall foliage is a major tourist attraction.
  7. Take a Walk through a Corn Maze: Head to a local corn maze and try to find your way out. Consider inviting some of your new coworkers and get to know each other in a fun setting. 
  8. Volunteer at a Haunted House: If you’re new to the area, what better way to meet new people, than dressing as a zombie and screaming in their face? Seriously, working at a haunted house can be a fun way to enjoy the season, meet lots of new people and even let off some steam.
  9. Enjoy Local Fall Foods: Butternut squash soup, warm pumpkin bread and hot apple cider are only a few of the comforting fall foods to try. Ask you new coworkers or neighbors where you can find some of the best local fall favorites to try.
  10. Remember What You Are Thankful For: The autumn months brings holidays including Thanksgiving. Before the hectic pace of the holidays starts, take a minute and remember all you have to be grateful for in your life.
