The days may be getting shorter, but that doesn’t mean it’s time to stay inside. There are still plenty of great fall activities for you and your family to enjoy! Take a look below for a short list of fall activities available in Western New York.
Go Apple Picking:
Are you looking for a way to get your kids to eat healthy? Going apple picking could do the trick. A great family activity, apple picking let’s your kids see how apples grow, and select their own. Places like Baker Farm in Lockport and Becker Farms in Gasport are great apple picking stops.
Head To A Pumpkin Patch:
Similar to apple picking, a pumpkin patch is another great outdoor family experience for fall. Pumpkinville in Great Valley is a wonderful spot filled with family activities, as is Wheatfield Pumpkin Farm and The Great Pumpkin Farm in Clarence. Then, bring them home and have fun carve or color it for a creative activity.
Walk Through A Corn Maze:
There are a number of corn mazes available in the Western New York area, all with varying degrees of difficulty. Some can even be done at night! Your best bet is to call ahead to make sure the course won’t be too easy or too hard for you and your kids.
Check Out A Haunted House or Hayride:
Fall is the season of Halloween, so don’t forget to get spooky! See if you can survive going through Frightworld without chickening out or take one of the many haunted hayrides found around the Western NY area.
Check Out Becker Farms:
Becker Farms offers more than just apple picking. Looking for a haunted hayride, apple picking and a brewery all rolled into one? You can find all of this and more at Becker Farms. This farm and bakery also hosts a number of events during fall including Oktoberfest, The Pumpkin Fiesta and more.
Take A Hike:
