For many Texans, fall is the best season of the year. After swelteringly hot summers, it’s great to welcome cool, crisp weather and spend time outdoors. Explore the top fall activities to do with your Jeep.
Go on a Scenic Drive
No doubt about it, fall is beautiful. While New England lays claim to some of the most iconic leaf-viewing sites in the country, Texas has its fair share of beautiful scenery to enjoy. Check out the Pineywoods Autumn Trail that loops for 145 miles between Athens and Palestine. There will be plenty of color-changing deciduous trees to take in.
Texas is a huge state, so there are many other scenic places to visit. The hill country is a favorite for people who enjoy seeing natural wonders any time of year. In the fall, visit places like Lost Maples State Natural Area, located just a couple of hours northwest of San Antonio.
For something a bit different from the usual fall scenery, visit West Texas—the temperatures at popular places like Big Bend National Park are lower at this time of year. And while you won’t see fall foliage like in other parts of the state, the brilliant autumnal hues of the land itself will charm you.
Join an Off-Road Group
If you’d like to go off the beaten path, you can off-road. And if you’d like to largely eliminate the stress of off-roading without sacrificing the fun, join an off-roading group.
You’ll find welcoming groups of Jeep enthusiasts that make off-roading exciting. Being part of a community of off-roaders will help you develop your skills more efficiently than you would on your own, too.
Check out the rules of the group before you head off for any excursions; community guidelines will help you prepare for your trip. And as the days grow shorter in the fall, it’s prudent to invest in accessories that improve your visibility while off-roading.
Another top fall activity to do with your Jeep is participating in a tailgate party. Have a blast this football season by tailgating in your Jeep before the big game. Like any great get-together, you’ll need food and beverages, utensils, and comfy chairs.
Modifications to your Jeep can improve your tailgate experience. Installing a cargo carrier makes it more convenient for carrying items like your grill, chairs, and cooler. And accessories like a folding rear tailgate table give you more surface area for preparing food.
