It’s the First Day of Fall! Where Does It Rank Among Our Favorite Seasons?

Are you excited that we’re now entering fall, or are you sad that we’re leaving summer?  According to a new poll, summer has a bigger fanbase.

33% of people said summer is their favorite season, followed by 22% who chose spring.  Fall wasn’t too far behind with 19%.  Only 7% of people said they like winter best, while 18% said that they don’t know or don’t have a favorite season.

There were big differences among age groups.  Gen Z preferred winter 23% to spring’s 9%, while those 65 and older were the opposite, loving spring 32% over winter’s 2%.

But what’s your favorite activity to do in the Fall?   This past week, Google Trends posted the most searched fall activities in every state, and for most of the country, it’s going to a pumpkin patch.  That was #1 in 39 states, including everywhere west of the East Coast.

Apple picking was #1 in 10 states:  Maine, New Hampshire, New York, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New Jersey, Virginia, North Carolina, and South Carolina.  And corn mazes were #1 in Vermont.
