In other words, fall is officially here.  The costume madness, the pigskin flying, and those breathtaking autumnal colors remind get outside and enjoy it before we miss it.

If you’re lucky enough to live in Denver, the home of Bold Betties, or anywhere in Colorado, there are a lot of great local activities that will give you your fix.  Here’s just a few:

Frontier Historical Society Ghost Walk – This spooky tour through Linwood Cemetery in Glenwood Springs happens the last three Fridays & Saturdays in October and sells out every time.  A guide walks you through the oldest cemetery in the area, the final resting place of local pioneers including Doc Holiday and Kid Curry.

Telluride Horror Show – This three day festival is dedicated horror films and runs October 16 – 18 this year.  Fall is when the ghosts and goblins come out, so what better way to celebrate a love of horror films and the spookiest time of year.

Breckenridge Craft Spirits Festival – The distilling of artisan spirits is a major trend around the country and Breckenridge is where both the makers and the fans gather to celebrate and sample.  From October 23 – 25 there will be pub crawls, historic tours, tastings, live music, local restaurant specials and much more for this festival.

Free Days at Denver Cultural Attractions – Many of Denver’s great cultural attractions offer free days during the fall, including the Denver Zoo, Denver Museum of Nature & Science, and the Denver Botanic Gardens.  Check out The Mother List for a complete schedule of free days in Denver for the year 2015.

View the Fall Colors – You would be hard pressed to find anything as beautiful as the Rocky Mountains covered in the vivid gold color of the aspen trees in fall.  There are many fantastic spots for viewing the fall colors in Colorado.  Some of the popular routes include Maroon Bells near Aspen, Independence Pass, Kenosha Pass, Grand Mesa, Lizard Head Pass, and McClure Pass, to name just a few.  Check out 7News Denver for their lineup of the most scenic views for fall colors.

Corn Mazes, Pumpkin Patches and U Pick Farms – Fall is all about the harvest so perhaps the best way to celebrate is by visiting local farms for tours, pumpkin picking, harvesting your own produce, hay rides, and much more.  There are so many family friendly activities at local farms and pumpkin patches all over the state. Check out Colorado.com to find the perfect spot for your fall festivities.

We’d also like to invite you to join us on two of our Bold Betties excursions this month in the greater Denver Metro:  Zombie Paintball Hayride and The Great Pumpkin Haul.

If we are missing something awesome, let us know- we'd love to add another Bold Betties excursion to the list this month!

FUNNY: So if you ARE obsessed with pumpkin (ok, we are all guilty!), try this pumpkin beer keg.  We want!
