“Fall in the Pacific Northwest is by far my favorite season.” Says REALTOR® Taelor Trowbridge, “From the rain boots and scarves to pumpkin patches and falling leaves. With the lowering temperatures it is a perfect time to break out the sweaters and coats and enjoy the crisp outdoor air.”

Each year Taelor packs her schedule full of the season's must-do's, and these are her top 5 favorites:
