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 the most out of your trip by spending a full day of fun at these spots throughout the area:
Picking apples is a quintessential fall activity. Not only is strolling through the orchard looking for the ripest apples to fill up your basket plenty of fun on its own, but the good times continue once you’re back home and you use your haul to bake delicious apple pies, apple crisps, and more! Have your own bushel of fun at these local farms:
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, enjoy the spookiest time of the year at these haunted attractions:
If you’re no scaredy-cat, you can also check out these historical cemeteries.
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:
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. Wandering through the sea of orange to find the perfect pumpkins, then returning back home to carve jack-o-lanterns and roast the seeds is just good, clean fun. Check out one of these patches this year:
The fun certainly doesn’t stop here! For more fall favorites, check out our events calendar for fairs, festivals, parties, and more.
