Swimming is an amazing way to relax and unwind.
3. Going to the Beach
Fall is the best season to run on the beach because intense heat and harsh sun can be avoided. The cooler temperatures make spending time at the beach much more enjoyable. Fall on the beach provides a tranquil solitude that is great for recharging and relaxing and also reading that book on the shelf that has been sitting there for months.

There are so many beautiful scenic changes that come alongside the fall season. The landscape begins to turn golden and wildlife begins preparing for the upcoming winter season.
