As hard as it is to say good-bye to summer, there are so many things to cherish with the arrival of fall. Here are a few tips to help you make the most of the season.

You still have that warm summer glow, but you don't yet need a winter coat, hat, or mittens. Plaids, corduroy, cashmere, leather, and suedes make their debut in an array of rich, saturated colors – from golden browns and bronzes, to oranges and ochers – leaving you looking fabulous for that homecoming parade. three Get ready for football! Even if you're not a die-hard fan, there's no denying the joy of football season. For some, it's all about huddling around the TV once a week to watch a favorite team battle for the ball. For others it's about tailgating and bundling up in a stadium filled with screaming fans. And for others, still, it's about chomping on chicken wings and enjoying a cold beer while checking the score every quarter. No matter what kind of spectator you are, there's something undeniably special about fall football. four Feast your eyes on the foliage People travel for miles to witness the brilliance of New England's fall foliage – with its cranberry reds, sunburnt oranges, and golden yellows.

Think pumpkin, cinnamon, apple, and cranberry – signature fall flavors that tickle your taste buds. Fire up your oven and try your hand at homemade pumpkin pie or cinnamon French toast. Or try a simple butternut one Focus on a fresh start Fall brings with it a newness that is felt in its crisp, cool, refreshing air. Gone are the wet beach towels, the piles of sand in your car, and the sticky humidity. Firewood is replenished, chimneys are cleaned, and bulbs are planted. Kids go off to school, and new seasons of your favorite network shows premiere on TV. Like a clean slate, autumn is a time for taking stock and starting anew.
