Autumn Activities

Pinehaven Farm, Wyoming MN

If you’re looking for fun fall festivities to indulge in then you’re in the right place! So before the weather gets too chilly, here’s a couple activities to try:

Starting with a classic fall festivity: apple picking. Afton Apple Orchard is a great place to start your autumn adventure. They let you pick your own apples and also have a wide selection of pumpkins towards the back. Afton is also a great place overall for instagram worthy photos.

Another classic is visiting a pumpkin patch. With a quick internet search, you can find tons of pumpkin patches in Minnesota; however, locations vary on what you’re looking for. If you’re looking for a more laidback pumpkin patch and want some cute fall pictures, I recommend visiting Axdal’s Garden Farm and Greenhouse. 

However, if you are looking for a pumpkin patch with more activities I recommend Sun Country Farm. Their attractions include Hay rides, a corn maze, a petting zoo and so much more. However, it’s important to note that their pumpkins are already pre-picked and located in a shop for purchase. For more of an extravagant pumpkin patch that has both attractions and offers a pick-your-own pumpkin, I recommend Pinehaven Farm. They offer a wide variety of attractions, games, and food trucks, as well as a hayride to their big field of pumpkins. 

For a more spooky fall activity, Pinehaven Farm also hosts The Dead End Hayride. It starts with a hayride down a scary trail where they drop you off at the beginning of a maze and It’s up to you to find your way to the end of it. Although a fun and frightening activity, note that the scare actors can touch you; there are more laid-back haunted houses to start with as well.

The Minnesota Zoo hosts a Jack-O-Lantern Spectacular. Part pumpkin patch and part art show, hundreds of carved pumpkins brightly light up a path. This event is great if you’re looking for a laid-back but intriguing activity. They also offer fall themed concessions as you amble along the path. 

Lastly, don’t be afraid to DIY a fall activity. There are tons of at home activities that are just as fun as going out. You could have a cozy movie night, bake fall treats, host a fall picnic or carve your own pumpkins; and that’s just to list a few. 

Regardless if you try any of these suggestions, I hope you get to enjoy the best season of the year!
