Fall is an exciting time of year in Berks County. The weather gets cooler and plenty of exciting seasonal activities begin. While there are some tedious tasks to take care of, such as winterizing your home and making sure your HVAC system is working properly, there are also plenty of fun activities to take part in as well. So, after you contact B&L Ott for biannual HVAC maintenance, enjoy time with your friends and family while taking part in one of these fall activities.

Enjoy the Leaves

One of the best reasons to be in the Berks County area during the fall season is the leaves. Sometimes we may take it for granted, but it’s not something everyone gets to see. Just being out in nature can be relaxing. So take a hike, or drive if you prefer, and take in the beautiful fall colors. If you need something for your hand to do, bring a camera and take some pictures.

Build a Fire and Make Smores

There are few things in life better than gathering around a fire with good friends and family and just talking. If you haven’t seen your friends or family members in a while, why not invite them over to sit by the fire and make s’mores?

Festivals and Parades

There are always plenty of fall festivals and parades going on in Berks County at this time of year. You could probably find one to go to every single weekend if you wanted to. Look online, in the newspaper, or for roadside advertisements to find one you’re interested in.

Corn Mazes

If you enjoy mental-stimulation, why not test yourself with a corn maze? There are plenty of farms in the Berks County area and quite a few of them have corn mazes.

Haunted Houses

If thrills and being scared are more your thing, you can look for some haunted house tours instead. Be sure to bring your friends for comfort, or to laugh at their silly faces when they get scared.

Carriage Rides or Hayrides

Not everyone is into being scared. Another relaxing and more romantic fall activity is hayrides or carriage rides. You can simply sit back and enjoy the fall scenery Berks County has to offer.

Apple or Pumpkin Picking

Apple picking or pumpkin picking are also relaxing and simple fall activities. You can bring your entire family and just pick some healthy snacks to bring home. You can also carve or decorate the pumpkins to make a spooky decoration for your home.


You can also bake your apples or pumpkin and make a delicious fall treat for your family. There are a variety of dishes you can make with apples and pumpkins. The oven will also help warm your home a little, so you can turn your heat back for a little while and save some money.

Arts and Crafts

If you are an artsy person or have kids to entertain, you can make some fall-themed crafts. There are countless options. Just head online to find some great ideas.

Decorating Your Berks County Home

You can then use your crafts to decorate your Berks County home. You can also just buy some permafrost decorations at the store and use them to decorate. Orange, purple, or green lights can also help add to the ambiance of your home.

Stay In and Sit By the Fire (Or Air Vent)

Life can get pretty busy during the fall season. If you need some rest, you can just stay in and sit by your fireplace or stove. You can watch Halloween movies, read a scary book, knit a scarf, build a fort, snack, or just snuggle with your pet.

If you don’t have a fireplace or stove, you can improvise and set up some blankets and pillows near an air vent. Just make sure your vent is clean and not blowing dust on you. If your air ducts are due for a cleaning, B&L Ott can help. You can contact us through our website here: https://otthvac.com/contact-us/. You can also call B&L Ott at 610-927-5133. Have a great fall!
