If you’re anything like us, at the slightest hint of cooler weather, we start prepping for one of our favorite seasons… Fall. The pumpkins get purchased, boots get pulled out of storage, scarves and sweaters begin to make another appearance and leaves begin to change their colors. Starbucks starts making their seasonal “Pumpkin Spice Latte,” and for that matter, pumpkin flavored everything is available for purchase! You got pumpkin flavored donuts, marshmallows, pie, coffee and more. Apparently we aren’t the only Fall fanatics out there.
Unfortunately, as time usually does, it flies. The Fall season is just around the corner but will last for a fleeting moment. It is so easy to turn around and realize in shock, that months have passed and we are on to the next season. We don’t want to let Fall slip by us without making plans to enjoy its experience to the fullest. That means a whole lot of apple cider sipping, pumpkin carving, jumping into leaf piles, festive food splurging, trick or treating, scarecrow decorating, corn maze exploring and Fall festival attending!
In the middle of September, the time is now to start planning your Fall fun! Mark the date in your calendar and make sure the family knows to keep the weekend free. Do not let the Fall season slip by without visiting one of the local attractions provided just during the month of October. The surrounding area offers quite a few fun options for Fall activities that will be colorful and joyous memories for you and your loved ones.
September 18th through the 20th, every day from 5pm until 11pm on Friday, 12pm until 11pm on Saturday, and 12pm until 6pm on Sunday, the Delaware Saengerbund Oktoberfest is in full swing! Featuring three days of authentic German food including: Bratwurst, Weisswuurst, potato salad, traditional plum cake, Bavarian bands, amusement rides, folk dancing and more.

Live music sets a backdrop for an incredibly fun Fall festival to get you into the festive mood! It also creates a great environment to bring the kids in their Halloween costumes for another opportunity to show off all the hard work mom put into sewing a dazzling ensemble!
Whatever you choose to do with your family, we know that you are going to love Fall in and around Rehoboth Beach. Although the east coast is known for their beach towns, hotels and boutiques, we do not let the fun stop with cooler weather! There is always something to do around the area. That is why you should consider looking at real estate in Rehoboth. It is the perfect spot to retire, raise a family or settle down. However, don’t take our word for it! See for yourself the beautiful homes available and let our agents be your guide. Call us today to set up an appointment and view some of the Don Williams Realty Group’s listings. We will take care of all of the work for you, so that you can sit back, sip a hot apple cedar and enjoy one of the happiest times of all… Fall.
