Fall is beloved by so many, and we can’t blame them. The weather is—dare we say—nearly perfect, there are so many traditions to enjoy, and there always seems to be fairs and festivals abound. If you’re looking for new places to make memories that’ll last a lifetime this Autumn, we’ve got them by the bushel!
“Get your dessert recipes ready and preheat that oven!”
Apples are the quintessential fall fruit. And sure, we love finding the ripest apples to fill up our baskets, but what we really love is getting back home and using the haul to bake delicious apple pies, apple crisps, and more! Get your dessert recipes ready and preheat that oven, because with several convenient locations peppered across Spartanburg, Boiling Springs, and Cowpens, Abbott Farms has all the delectable apple varieties you could ever hope for (and probably more).
Now that’s some good, clean fun!
One of the longest-standing fall traditions is packing up the family to go pick out a couple of gorgeous gourds at the pumpkin patch. This year, check out the patch Greyrock Farms and Green Acres Produce in Moore, SC where you can wander through the sea of orange to find the most perfect pumpkins, then return back home to carve jack-o-lanterns and roast the seeds. Now that’s some good, clean fun!
Bike, kayak, or picnic in Mother Nature’s beauty!
Mother Nature gives us quite the show every autumn as emerald leaves transform into rich reds, vibrant yellows, and deep browns. Experience the beauty of the changing leaves as you bike these tree-lined trails, kayak across our glassy lakes, or picnic in one of many lush parks:
For those that love the thrill of a fear-spiked adrenaline rush!
Does the chill in the air make you crave the feeling of chills down your spine? Do you think ghosts are just a scream? If you love the thrill of a fear-spiked adrenaline rush, plan your visit to Nightmare Hollow or Wompus Woods for spooky trails, haunted hayrides, and a whole night full of frights. Then, if you’re no scaredy-cat, you can also check out these historical cemeteries… if you dare.
Come get ‘lost in the stalks’!
Looking for a place where you can have it all? Get the most out of your trip by spending a full day of fun at Strawberry Hill U.S.A in Chesnee, SC! Get “lost in the stalks” of their corn maze, embark on their wagon ride adventure, pick from their ever-growing pumpkin patch, and cap the day off with a snack from their cafe or ice cream parlor. You can even sit a while at their 61 year old peach shed while you’re there, too.
The fun certainly doesn’t stop here! For more fall favorites, check out our events calendar for fairs, festivals, parties, and more.
