Visit a Pumpkin Farm
A trip to a pumpkin farm may be the best way to get into the fall spirit! Kids can search for their favorite pumpkins, escape the corn maze, enjoy a hayride – and learn about agriculture and life on a farm.
Go Camping for the Weekend
Take the opportunity to go camping with the family at this perfect time of year. While picking the right destination is always a priority, many families may choose fall to avoid some of the heat and crowds of the summer season.
Follow a Nature Trail
Fall’s changing colors can create an incredible backdrop for hiking or walking. From a local nature trail to a national park, there’s no shortage of stunning hiking spots at this time of year.
Enjoy a Day of Horseback Riding
The pleasant temperatures and scenery of fall make horseback riding an excellent family activity. Spend the day on a horseback trail or visit a riding stable for lessons.
Go Apple Picking
Apple picking is a traditional fall activity for many families. A trip to an orchard offers the chance to get outdoors, stay active – and enjoy some locally-grown produce. In addition, many locations include picnic areas, petting zoos and other fun activities for kids.
Visit a Botanical Garden
The changing season brings a shift in atmosphere, plants and colors for families to explore. Children can experience a host of seasonal flora in a fun and educational day out.
Go to a Zoo or Wildlife Park
With smaller crowds and cooler weather, fall is a good time to visit a local zoo or wildlife park. Visitors can often experience different animal behaviors at this time of year, with opportunities to educate the kids on migration or hibernation activities.
Experience a Historical Site
Every state offers a range of historical attractions for families to enjoy. Whether you visit the Statue of Liberty or a place closer to home, you can gain insights into national or local history and even the environment.
