One of the things that makes Phoenix so great is that it offers tons of resources during any season. From the coldest day of winter to the most sweltering summer afternoon, you can find something engaging to participate in. This is especially true in the fall when the city starts to bustle with fresh activity. This season may be beloved nationwide as a time of pumpkin spice lattes and pumpkin patch photos, but in Phoenix, it offers so much more.
1 – Hosting NFL Game Day
Show off your new apartment by having the whole crew over to watch some football. 2018 hasn’t seen the Cardinals get off to the strongest start of all time, but sticking with your team through the tough times is part of what makes a true fan. Have your friends over for the full day, and enjoy some drinks and snacks before going back to the grind on Monday. If you deck your apartment out with a big screen TV, you can become the go-to host of football Sundays. What better way to end the weekend than hanging out with friends without having to leave home?
2 – Exploring Your Neighborhood
This is a big one. The weather starts to cool off after a long, hot summer. You can finally take a long walk around your neighborhood without getting drenched in sweat. It’s enough to make you remember why you fell in love with the area around your apartment in the first place. Best of all, everyone else is finally ready to go outside again, too. That means your neighborhood will be full of fresh faces and fun experiences.
If you haven’t gotten to meet a lot of your neighbors yet, this is the time to do so. People will finally be hanging out in the common areas around the complex, instead of hiding from the sun as they have been for the last few months. Sit outside and have dinner or listen to live music.
3 – Decorating for the Season
There’s so much to decorate for during the fall. You can get into the season itself with some warm, muted colors. Beyond that, it’s a blast to decorate for Halloween. Make your apartment extra spooky, or load up on pumpkins so all the neighbors know you’re in the spirit. Once Halloween has come and gone, it’s time to swap out those decorations for your Thanksgiving-themed knick-knacks. There are few things homier than a nice cornucopia and some turkeys. It’ll be good practice for the winter holidays, too!
4 – Long Weekends
When you love your apartment, it can be a bummer to leave it five days a week and go into the office. Luckily, fall is packed with national holidays, so you get plenty of time to relax at home and do the things you love. Take advantage of your great location by planning a weekend getaway to the surrounding areas. You can go hiking, or head north a bit to see the changing leaves. Of course, there’s nothing wrong with staying in for a nice Netflix binge either. Whatever you love to do around your Phoenix apartment, now you can do it more.
5 – Basketball is Back (and Baseball, too)
Granted, we already talked about the excitement of football season, but there’s no rule that you can only love one sport at a time. Basketball’s great because there are games on just about every night. Follow the Suns, the ASU squad, or any of your favorite teams from around the nation. If all your teams let you down, you can even move on to another sport. Phoenix has a great fall baseball league, and you’ll get the first look at some top prospects to hold you over until spring training.
6 – It’s the Best Time to Move
If you don’t love doing the previous five things, it may be time to look at other Phoenix apartments. There are so many good options in the area, you’re sure to find a great place to call home. Moving during the summer in Phoenix can be brutal, but now the weather is starting to give you a reprieve. There may not ever be a fun time to move a couch, but the effort is worth it in the end, and now is as good of a time as any.
