Fun things to do in november: 30 Things to Do in November

30 Things to Do in November

Last month was busy! Good busy. A  trip to Niagara Falls, lots of fall family outings, my son’s 9th birthday, family visiting from the North Carolina and an awesome Halloween.

While October is one of my favourite months, so is November! 

November is my birthday month and it’s also the month I get ready for the holidays. Honestly, I’m not sure how long I can wait before I put up all the Christmas decorations and start making gingerbread houses. Any other Christmas fans out there?

To me, November is such an exciting month and it usually goes by pretty fast. But, I am going to try to slow it down if I can and enjoy watching the last leaves fall on this beautiful autumn we’ve had. 

In keeping with my “things to do this month” series, today I am sharing some simple things and fun activities you can do in November, including a few local Ottawa events you should check out.

1. Start your holiday shopping – I’ve already got a jumpstart on my Christmas gift list, and I am happy about that, because by the time the holidays roll around things can get a bit crazy. Slow it down and start your shopping earlier so you have time to browse and find thoughtful presents. It also means more time sipping eggnog and chilling by a yule log come Christmastime.  

2. Attend the Tea and Chocolate Festival – at the Nepean Sportsplex, on November 2nd to 3rd, tea and chocolate lovers can enjoy a delightful time discovering new brands of their favourite treats.

3. Change your clocks – While not a super “fun activity”, this is a friendly reminder that daylight savings time ends November 3rd at 2 am, so you fall back an hour. It does mean an extra hour of the weekend! 

4. Take a serene walk in the woods – we’re having an awesome autumn here in Ontario, but now the leaves are falling down. Take advantage of walking on a tapestry of leaves before it snows and get lost in the woods for a while.

5. Pick up some throw blankets – I may have a throw blanket obsession; I love them so much and so do the rest of the family. As we are moving into the colder months, get out your favourite throw blankets and maybe get a new one or two, they will come in handy!

6. Take deep breaths – the first Wednesday of November is National Stress Awareness Day, and it is a great opportunity to take a step back and do anything that is stress-free!

7. Binge watch a new show – there are so many great things to do on the weekend, but every now and then you need to chill out in your jammies, on the couch, watching a new or favourite show.

8. Make your own homemade jam or chutney – not only is jam and chutney perfect for so many holiday meals, they make great gifts too. 

9. Attend the Pet Expo – if you’re a pet lover (or know someone who is) this is the event for you! November 9th – 10th at the EY Centre here in Ottawa get together with thousands of pets and pet owners for an event that is sure to be fun!

10. Bake cookies – the whole month of December is like gameday for baking cookies, but right now is the best time to try out a whole bunch of recipes for the holiday season! Even better if you can freeze them for the holidays.

11. Observe Remembrance Day– it is important to remember those who came before us to make this nation the amazing country it is today! We’ll be taking the time to remember today. In the United States, it is Veterans Day and a wonderful time to say thank you to veterans who have served. I am going to give my husband a big hug, he served in the US Navy! 

12. Take family photos – whether you hire a photographer or DIY a photoshoot, family photos are a blast for Christmas cards and sharing on social media, now is a great time to start planning for a session.

13. Be extra kind – November 13th is World Kindness Day and the perfect day to be extra kind to everyone you meet. If you are looking for an excuse to bring something tasty into the office, today is the day! 

14. Get into your pyjamas early – November 14th is National Family Pajama Day and I think it should be a day of having the whole family in their PJs with a good movie and a bowl of popcorn! 

15. Start watching holiday movies – let’s be honest, one month is not nearly long enough to watch all the awesome holiday movies. You have to start early! Right now is the perfect time to begin a marathon of the best holiday movies (and movies you watch around the holidays. My husband watches Lord of The Rings around this time, for some reason). 

16. Visit a handmade market – I love all things crafty and if you are looking for great decorations and gift ideas, visit the Mistletoe & Ivy Handmade Market here in Ottawa, at Allsaints event space on November 16th, hosted by Grow Studios. Last year I had the awesome privilege of visiting the studios and the wonderful craft-makers! 

17. Donate to your local food bank – recently I had the opportunity to drop by our local food bank warehouse and felt humbled and thankful for all the amazing work they do. Now is a great time to make a donation and give them a helping hand! 

18. Host a bake exchange – baking is such a fun way to celebrate the approaching holiday season. It’s also a great excuse to host a party. A bake exchange is an awesome way to hang out with friends and share tasty treats! 

19. Play a game of Monopoly – November 19th is National Monopoly Day and it’s the perfect excuse to bust out that beloved board game. But to be honest, my husband and I get super competitive playing Monopoly, thankfully we have two little cuties that keep us grounded as we play. 

20. Make your favourite fall crockpot meal – if there is ever a time to pull out the crockpot it is now, this season is perfect for soups, stews, and chilis. A quick Pinterest search will land you tons of inspiration. 

21. Eat gingerbread cookies – too early, you say… not yet Christmas, you say…well let me tell you, November 21st is National Gingerbread Cookie Day! It’s THE day to snack on some tasty gingerbread cookies, and of course later on during the holidays too!

22. Get your winter accessories in order – we will be jumping into some considerable cold here in Ontario very soon. Now is the time to make sure all those boots, scarves, mittens, hats, and so on are ready to go. 

23. Listen to live jazz – Ottawa has a few hot spots where you can listen to live jazz, including The Rainbow and Brookstreet Hotel.

24. Create your own chicken soup recipe – nothing like a hot bowl of chicken soup when you’re feeling under-the-weather or it’s getting cold outside. Having your own go-to chicken soup recipe will come in handy for the next few months! 

25. Make a Christmas card list – Christmas cards are a wonderful tradition, especially in a day and age when a lot of our communication is online. Receiving and giving Christmas cards is a memorable way to celebrate the holidays. Take some time to update addresses and make a list of those you want to reach out to! 

26. Bake a sweet potato pie – I always grew up with pumpkin pie around the holidays, but for Canadian Thanksgiving, I surprised my husband with a sweet potato pie. It’s similar to pumpkin pie but totally different. Give it a try and expand your pie palette. 

27. Make a cup of homemade hot cocoa – I drink coffee and hot teas throughout the year, but hot cocoa is something I reserve for when it starts to get really cold. This is a perfect drink to mix up your hot beverage routine! 

28. Celebrate American Thanksgiving – it took my husband years to get used to having Thanksgiving in October, but we still celebrate Thanksgiving again in November with the rest of America!

 29. Do some Black Friday shopping – it might be crazy (I remember the madness of going to the mall last year) but Black Friday can also be a time to save and get some deals. Just get out there with a positive attitude and go for it! On the flip side, many small businesses host Black Friday alternative sales which is a great opportunity to support them.

30. Decorate for Christmas – if you’ve made it this far without decorating, go for it! Christmas is a time for joy and happiness, and if decorating the whole house makes you feel happy, why not?

There you have it, a list of random things to add to you November calendar page! I hope you have a great month ahead friends and enjoy the final days of fall and the beginning of the holiday season.

Where to relax in November – 10 interesting destinations

The last month of autumn can safely be called the most dreary of the year. The summer heat has already ended, the weather is not encouraging, and it will take almost two months to wait for the New Year holidays. The best way to combat discouragement is to rest, because there are so many wonderful places in the world where you can go in November. And there are also enough ways to deal with autumn depression: sunbathing and swimming in the warm sea, having fun at European fairs, admiring the northern lights, conquering the snow-covered slopes of ski slopes or studying ancient monuments built at the dawn of civilization.


The Nordic beauty of this country is especially good in late autumn. At this time, it is relatively warm in Iceland, and the majority of tourists have already gone home. The main reason to come here to rest in November is the beginning of the northern lights season. During trips to the indescribably beautiful regions of the country, you will surely be able to see this amazing natural phenomenon more than once. Don’t forget to stop by for a few days in Reykjavik – the famous Airwaves music festival is taking place here, and the city is worth it to walk along its streets.

GOOD TO KNOW: From September to May, Reykjavik offers free walking tours of the city every Saturday.

What to see: Reykjavik, Thingvellir park, Dettifoss waterfall, Ausbirgi canyon, Cape Dirhoulaey, Geysir geyser, Hvitserkur troll rock.

If you can’t decide where to ski in November, Switzerland is the place to go. At this time, a large number of outdoor enthusiasts come here to spend time among the famous mountain landscapes of the Alps. Switzerland is famous not only for the best ski slopes in Europe, but also for the availability of the most modern sports equipment and equipment.

GOOD TO KNOW: In the unique ski resort of Leukerbad, you can not only ski, but also improve your health – there are about 30 thermal springs with healthy mineral water.

The best ski resorts: Zermatt, Champousin, Verbier, Saas-Fee, Les Diablerets.

In Central Europe, the tourist season ends in late autumn, but Germany is a country worth visiting in November. More precisely, in the second half of the month, even though the weather may not be very friendly at this time. It is just the time of the opening of the winter fairs and the preparations for the celebration of Christmas and New Year are in full swing. Be sure to take your kids on a trip – they will love the festively decorated German cities and the fun that reigns in the streets. And if you like outdoor activities and winter sports, go to the best ski resorts of the Bavarian Alps – cozy Garmisch-Partenkirchen, the picturesque village of Schönau, the quiet family resort of Oberstdorf are waiting for you. In November, the season is just beginning here, but in a month everything will be filled with tourists.

GOOD TO KNOW: At the end of November, more than 50 fairs and bazaars start operating in Berlin, with different themes and programs.

Cities with the best programs: Berlin, Munich, Cologne, Dresden, Nuremberg.

This is the time when the beach season is in full swing – the sizzling heat gives way to quite comfortable temperatures, and the Red Sea continues to remain warm. But most importantly, in November you can go to Cairo to admire its famous pyramids and other attractions without fear of getting a heat stroke. Strong winds can blow in November, but if you are relaxing in Sharm el-Sheikh, you are unlikely to notice this – the Sinai Mountains reliably cover the resort from bad weather. Therefore, as in summer, here you can go diving and snorkeling, go on boat trips to the coral reefs.

GOOD TO KNOW: In the last third of November, it can be windy and cool in the morning and evening – take a light jacket and closed shoes for the trip.

Attractions: Great Pyramids of Giza, Great Sphinx, Valley of the Kings, Cairo Egyptian Museum, Abu Simbel.

In November, the air temperature in Israel is comfortable – it is very warm here, but not hot. The flow of tourists is noticeably reduced. This means that a beach holiday in the luxury resorts of Eilat, Tel Aviv, Haifa or the Dead Sea can be successfully combined with trips and excursions. After all, Israel occupies a small area – a “round the world” trip across the country can be completed in just 4-5 hours. Arriving for just a week, you can not only lie on the beach, but see the most interesting cities and sights of the Promised Land.

GOOD TO KNOW: When walking in any city, especially in Jerusalem, try to avoid the Orthodox and Arab quarters. Local residents do not like strangers and can be aggressive. The first ones will most likely not let you in by the police, and the second ones are easily recognizable by the black tanks of water heaters on the roofs of houses.

Worth visiting: Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, Jaffa, Eilat, Haifa.

The end of autumn on Liberty Island is considered the beginning of the dry season, although there are often heavy but very short rains at night. In November, you can enjoy a beach holiday to your heart’s content, go on excursions and visit nature reserves – the weather is just perfect for this. You will also find a lot of sports entertainment and vibrant nightlife – Cubans love and know how to have fun, as well as arrange incendiary parties.

GOOD TO KNOW: All resorts in Cuba, except for Varadero, will have to be reached from Havana by local flights.

Best resorts: Varadero, Cayo Coco, Cayo Guillermo, Cayo Largo, Havana.

Dominican Republic

This exotic, expressive and bustling country is one of the best places to visit in the Caribbean in November. It’s getting less and less rainy, the weather is getting better, and prices will rise closer to the beginning of December, when the high season begins and a stream of vacationers pours into the Dominican Republic. There are more than enough activities for tourists here: beach holidays, diving, water sports, walks in nature reserves and botanical gardens, historical excursions to Santo Domingo, nightclubs, shopping and just trips through the picturesque surroundings.

GOOD TO KNOW: It’s always a little cooler on the Atlantic coast of the Dominican Republic than in the Caribbean resorts.

Best resorts: Cap Cana, Punta Cana, Boca Chica, Puerto Plata, Cabarete.

Like many other countries in Southeast Asia, the best time to visit Vietnam is between November and April. In the southern part of the country, the rainy season is already ending, the sea is warm, prices are just starting to rise – just ideal conditions for a beach holiday, excursions and travel. True, in the northern and central regions it will be a little cooler, heavy showers and thunderstorms often occur. In Vietnam, you can not only lie under an umbrella on the beach and swim – there are many cities where you should go on excursions to admire the historical monuments, beautiful architecture and bright holidays of this country.

GOOD TO KNOW: Autumn in Vietnam is quite high humidity, about 96%, but it takes only 1-2 days to get used to it.

Worth visiting: Mui Ne, Phan Rang, Phu Quoc, Vung Tau, Phan Thiet, Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon) Hoi An, Ha Long Bay.

Sri Lanka

The most popular holiday regions are located on the southwest coast of Sri Lanka. In the last weeks of autumn, the air here warms up to + 25-30 ºС, and the water temperature is kept at +27 ºС. The ocean begins to calm down after storms – there are waves, but they do not interfere with swimming, and humidity drops to a record low of 75%. Such weather is favorable for travel – be sure to visit tea plantations, visit remote villages and admire the colonial architecture of Sri Lanka’s big cities.

In the north-east of the country, on the contrary, the high season ends – from the Bay of Bengal monsoons come, bringing tropical downpours and strong waves. At this time, fans of extreme sports and surfers mainly come here.

GOOD TO KNOW: Take a quadcopter on a trip – the amazing landscapes and beautiful beaches of Sri Lanka look incomparable in a bird’s eye video.

Best resorts: Bentota, Negombo, Hikkaduwa, Marawila, Arugam Bay.

The island is often referred to as heaven on earth, and it’s true. In November, the low season begins in Bali and it often rains. But do not be afraid – it almost always happens at night. And in the morning, tourists are greeted by the bright sun, the warm waves of the Indian Ocean and the unusually colorful, fresh greenery of the island. There are so many interesting things here that you will have to plan your vacation as carefully as possible in order to get the most positive impressions about the trip. An unforgettable vacation on the beaches, trips to the jungle, visits to ancient temples and exciting hikes on the slopes of volcanoes await you.

GOOD TO KNOW: According to local etiquette, you should avoid touching the head of adults and children – it is believed that this is the container of the soul, which can be disturbed. You need to say hello, take food, change and other items with your right hand, since the left, in the view of local residents, is unclean.

Best resorts: Seminyak, Kuta, Sanur, Nusa Dua, Canggu.

Where to relax in November abroad?


The United Arab Emirates in November is one of the most attractive holiday destinations. The heat has already subsided, there are still 2 months before the rainy season. The weather in the UAE at this time contributes not only to relaxing on the beach, but also to visiting the many attractions of this beautiful country. In November, we advise everyone to visit the desert and take part in a real safari. There are many cities for recreation in the UAE. But of course, Dubai remains the most popular destination.

This is the safest place in Russia where you can spend a weekend and even a whole vacation even in November. If you have been here many times, you will still find something new for yourself. If you are lucky with the weather, then take a walk around VDNKh, Sparrow Hills, climb to the observation deck of the Ostankino Tower. But the rain should not be a hindrance to a good rest. In Moscow, there are a huge number of museums at your service, headed by the Tretyakov Gallery, the State Historical Museum, the Museum of Cosmonautics, etc. And there are many exhibitions, interactive activities, amusement parks, bars and restaurants.

St. Petersburg

A lot of words have already been said and written about the northern capital of Russia – everyone has heard about the unique atmosphere of this city. The richest European culture, architectural ensembles of the city will delight true connoisseurs. Party-goers will not get bored either – St. Petersburg is famous for its bar life. Almost until the end of November, you can catch the drawing of bridges. Walk along Nevsky Prospekt, visit St. Isaac’s Cathedral, the Hermitage, go up to the observation deck of the “Etazhi” loft project and enjoy the panorama of the city. We won’t even talk about the temperature in November – what difference does it make what the weather is like when there is such beauty around?


The capital of Tatarstan is a place where people are proud of their culture and try to preserve and preserve the traditions of indigenous peoples.
