It happens every year, and yet every year it’s the same story: you are never prepared for how boring the fall can be. The weather is wet and chilly, and many of the outdoor activities have shuttered their facilities for the end of summer. But there are indoor activities that can be just as fun – if not more fun – and it is only a matter of getting a couple friends together and trying them out.
This article has tried to curate a perfect list of three indoor activities so that there is something for everyone: for the thrill seeker, the performance trainer and the game-lover. All of these three entries are activities that you can play throughout the fall, often as part of a league or team; for that reason, you won’t find activities like escape rooms or go-karting here, since they are more “one-off” experiences. You also won’t find common activities here, like tennis or even rock climbing; this article is more concerned with showing you something new!
With that in mind, here are the top three indoor activities for fall 2018:
To inject a little excitement into the cold months, learn how the best axe throwing leagues workat one of the many BATL (Backyard Axe Throwing League) locations across North America. Book a lane for throwing and they will throw in an axe throwing lesson with one of their professionals.
If you find that you really enjoy axe throwing (and be honest: of course you will enjoy hurling a weapon at a target!) then you can sign up for the axe throwing league, where you will face off in competition with other league members. All in all, it is a perfect way to stay engaged and in shape during the fall and winter months, and it may even relieve some work stress!
You might still be able to get some holes in during the fall, depending on where you live. But it’s never as good as the summer. Luckily, you can golf indoors these days with recreational golf simulators. Play a full 18 holes, while working on your swing and put, all without ever having to step out into the cold and rain.
Utilizing 3D graphics, as well as radar and light sensors, indoor golf is a pretty good imitation of the real thing, and it will help your golf game stay fresh for next summer.
Finally, for the lovers of narrative and RP games, there are a few different ways you can play the iconic Dungeons and Dragons game. If you are a seasoned D&Der, you probably already have a group of people to play with, but for the newcomer, there are a couple options: you can search for campaigns in your area that are accepting new players, or you can join an online league.
With the resurgence in popularity courtesy of shows like Stranger Things and Community, D&D is all of a sudden “cool” (or, at the very least, not laughed at anymore) so this fall seems like the perfect time to try it out.
Any one of these activities would make a perfect indoor fall activity, but to really make the most out of the coming months, try all three. Being indoors has never been this awesome!
