Can you feel the seasons changing?
Can you feel that cold air approaching? Can you see the leaves changing?
Fall is most definitely coming.
Does that mean the end of trips, the end of holidays and the end of travelling as a family?
There are still tonnes of fun family trips and visits you can do in Fall time.
In fact, they are some of my favourite activities for the whole year.
Let’s look at some of the best family Fall trips below to get re-inspired for the season.
National Parks look absolutely gorgeous in the Fall time.
You can take a hike, a long walk, have a picnic, or go camping in permitted areas.
You can take some absolutely beautiful family pictures together here, and you can start the new season in style.
Bring a hot cup of coffee and you will be guaranteed to have a cosy and fun day.
Pumpkin Patch Visits
Is there anything that screams Fall more than a pumpkin patch? I don’t think so.
Pumpkin patches that you can visit and buy from will pop up all over the place from now until Halloween time.
Take your children and let them pick out their favourite pumpkin, then you can take it to home to carve.
Pumpkin patches usually also have fun family activities happening too, such as mazes or family games. These are great for kids.
If you’re looking for a fun day out and some photos absolutely worthy for Instagram, pumpkin patches are the way to go.
If you want a slightly bigger trip but it isn’t really the time for beach holidays or sunny destinations anymore, why not try a city break?
You can go somewhere not to far away and still have a great break.
It’s all about a break from your normal routine and trying out some different and new spots.
You can go for a couple of days or for a weekend, and still feel like you have had enough of a break from your everyday life.
Try a city break this Fall and keep your family in the holiday spirit a little while longer.
Visit an Apple Orchard
Fall is apple picking season.
You can take your family to a local apple orchard and let them pick and gather some apples.
This is a fun outdoors activity that will provide them with some fresh air and some much needed time in nature.
Once you pick the apples, you can take them home and make homemade apple pie or some toffee apples.
This spreads your activity out to fill an entire day and you will all get a delicious treat by the end of it.
Visit a Spooky Attraction
Get into the Halloween spirit early and find some spooky locations in your area.
It could be a Haunted House, scare room, escape room, spooky maze, or anything else Halloween-y.
Keep your children happy about the transition from Summer to Fall by getting them excited for Halloween and everything that comes with it in advance.
The more you embrace Fall, the better it feels for everyone in your household.
