Creating a fall bucket list can be a great way to spend an afternoon. But ticking off things on that list can be even more fun.
Bucket lists are all about unexplored possibilities.
To inspire you, let’s look at some of the top ten fall bucket list ideas for 2022.
Learn to play an Instrument
With cooler temperatures beginning to spread, finding some indoor activities for your fall bucket list can make them easier to achieve.
If you can’t resist playing air guitar when your favorite song comes over the airwaves, this could be the ideal time to pick up an instrument and take some beginner classes.
Search sites like eBay or Etsy for second-hand instruments if you want to save on cash, and check university bulletin boards for music lessons. Grad students often offer private instruction to improve their teaching skills while bringing in some much-needed funds. It’s a win-win scenario that ends in a song.

Drive your dream car
Not everyone can afford an Audi, Porsche, or Ferrari F60, but that doesn’t mean you can drive one for a day.
Luxury car rental agencies often have big-ticket vehicles at a very reasonable day rate. So treat yourself to time behind the wheel of one—or several—of the world’s best machines. If there’s no room in your budget for rental fees, consider taking your dream car for a test drive. Either way, you’ll be able to check “Drive a Lamborghini” off your fall bucket list for 2022.
Anyone who’s ever tried—or thought about trying—an extreme sport will want to add this exhilarating experience to their bucket list.
Nothing compares to flying through the air at speeds as much as 120 MPH. Once you’ve opened your parachute, you can take in breathtaking views as you lazily float back down to the earth.
Read a classic
Books, especially big books or books that are considered classics, can be something we often think we should do but never make a priority.
Adding a classic book to your bucket list is not only fun and free (if you get the book from the library) activity, but it also tops many fall bucket lists for families.
Family-friendly classics like C.S. Lewis’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland or Lord of The Rings by J. R. R. Tolkien are great for readers of all ages.
Take a hike
But not just any hike.
Mountain trekking tops many fall bucket lists for couples. Challenge yourself and each other as you explore some of nature’s most demanding terrains to experience world-class mountaintop views.
After hiking the Diamond Head Crater on the island of O’ahu, Hawai’i, for example, you are rewarded with a 360-degree view of Honolulu, Waikiki, and the Pacific Ocean—and you can complete the hike in a couple of hours. And Japan’s Mount Fuji and Peru’s Macchu Pichu offer exciting hikes in exotic locales.
If the idea of traveling to Hawai’i or Japan seems bigger than your budget, a cash-out refinance could put cash in your bank. With a cash-out refinance, you get a low-stress, low-interest way to fund your climb and create memories and moments that last a lifetime.
Sing a song
Like the old song goes, “Sing out loud, sing out strong.”
You don’t need to be a superstar to live out your bathroom mirror rock star fantasies.
Look for karaoke or open mic nights at a local pub and get up and sing a song. And if you’ve got stage freight? Sing two.
You’ll never forget the experience. Be sure to bring a bunch of friends to cheer you and everyone else on!
Camp under the stars
At some time, we’ve all looked up at the stars and made a wish. So treat yourself to a night of stargazing, and camp out under the stars.
Go alone or with friends, visit a national park, go off-grid, or just pitch a tent in your backyard. No matter how you do it, you’ll be amazed at the beauty—and pleasure—that just looking up can bring.
Splurge on a favorite restaurant
We all have a favorite restaurant we’d love to dine at. Whether you’ve been there many times before or you’ve never walked inside, a once-in-a-lifetime dinner at that restaurant is the stuff of legends.
This is a great item to add to your fall bucket list with friends. So build your perfect evening with care. Pick a place that offers the best of your favorite cuisine, get dressed up, and maybe even arrive by limousine.
And don’t forget to take too many pictures. You’ll all be reliving the night for years to come.
Get a tattoo
If you’ve dreamed about getting a tattoo, autumn is a perfect time. Visit different shops and look through artist portfolios. If you don’t see a design you’d like, book an appointment with your favorite artist and collaborate to create a tattoo that’s as unique as you are.
Opt for something sentimental, serious, fun, or abstract; regardless of the style you choose, your tattoo will be a steady reminder that you’re working your way through your bucket list.
Take the ultimate relaxation vacation
Your bucket list doesn’t need to be all challenging items; some of the best things on a fall bucket list for couples include a little pampering at spas, all-inclusive resorts, or cruise ships.
Enjoy world-class menus, massages, hot tubs, and anything else you can imagine. By giving yourself the gift of relaxation, you’ll come back refreshed and revived and have more to offer those who matter most to you.
