Google Trends looked at some of the top autumn activities Americans are googling right now. Here are a few that are trending:
1. “Fall rock painting ideas.” Meaning things to paint on decorative rocks. Google searches for it are up 350% in the past week.
2. “Corn maze near me.” It’s seen a big bump in the past month.
3. “Easy pumpkin carving.” No matter how complicated it is, just don’t jump the gun. Those jack-o-lanterns probably won’t last more than a week.
4. “Apple picking near me 2021.” (I guess searches for “apple picking near me in 1978” aren’t as popular?)
5. “Haunted hay ride near me.” Also, searches for “haunted houses near me” are up 850% this month.
6. “Fall color map.” Meaning a map that shows when and where to see the leaves change. SmokyMountains.com has a pretty good one that shows the whole U.S. (Fox News also just posted a list of America’s best scenic drives for fall foliage.)
