Fun and Sober Activities for Fall

Fall is officially here and there's a host of fun and sober activities to enjoy in sunny Southern California. Of course, you can still enjoy the best beaches around come October, but there are more autumn-inspired things to do, too. 

Here are a few ideas: 
  • Enjoy the foliage. Whether you visit a nearby garden or go for a hike at a local mountain, there are plenty of spots to soak up nature and admire the vibrant colors of fall. 
  • Arrange an apple picking day. East coasters aren’t the only ones who can get their fill of apples this season; there are plenty of apple picking spots around Los Angeles. 
  • Play in a pumpkin patch: Head out with some friends or family members and pick that perfect pumpkin for a jack-o-lantern. Many pumpkin patches will have petting zoos and haunted mazes, too.
  • Go camping. Fall means fewer bugs, less crowded campgrounds and cooler temperatures perfect for cozying up by the campfire. Or, check out a nearby glamping (short for glamorous camping) destination where you get the best of both worlds – a back-to-nature break from daily life without a sore back or mosquito bites.
  • Head to the farmer’s market. Tis the season of pumpkin spice everything – and don’t forget apples, sweet potatoes, squash and figs. Added bonus: Many of these foods are packed with essential vitamins to help restore your body and mind from the damage of alcohol or substance abuse.

4 Ways to Celebrate Your Recovery

Whether you measure your sobriety in days, weeks, months or years, these milestones are definitely worth celebrating. In fact, taking time to acknowledge your hard work and dedication to lasting recovery is a great way to stay motivated. Here are some fun and sober ideas to help you celebrate your sobriety milestones. 

  1. Get together with loved ones. Spending quality time with those closest to you is the perfect way to celebrate your recovery and thank friends and family who have supported you along the way. It can be simple. Arrange a movie night or potluck dinner or afternoon in the park with snacks and Frisbee.
  2. Participate in recovery events. September happens to be Recovery Month and there are plenty of in-person and online events going on. Visit to find an event near you. Celebrating your recovery with others in the community can also help to secure your sobriety as you develop a wider network of supporters. 
  3. Volunteer. If you’re uncomfortable with a celebration that focuses solely on you, then why not reward yourself by giving back to others. After all, helping others feels good. Look up volunteer opportunities in your local newspaper – from community gardens to animal care, you’re sure to find a worthy cause that piques your interest.
  4. Reward and enrich yourself. A smart way to celebrate your recovery is to reward yourself by doing something you’ve always wanted to do. Now is your chance, for example, to enroll in that photography class or to visit a new nearby city. Treat yourself – you’ve definitely earned it!
