3. Haunted Hallows of Hammonds Plains
No fall insta feed is complete without at least one spooky picture, and that's where the Haunted Hallow comes in! Located on Hammonds Plains Rd, this hair-raising hike through the woods is not for the faint of heart, but is perfect for those thrill seekers who also care about their #aesthetic.
4. Seaport Farmers' Market

5. Dal Campus
This one is almost too obvious, yet most of us wouldn't even think of it, considering the fact that we walk through campus almost every day. Most Dal and King's students take for granted the beauty of our campus, with it's ivy covered buildings and beautiful trees all around. If you stop and really look around, you'll realize you don't have to go very far to capture the perfect pic with the perfect fall backdrop.
