Fall is a great time for making new family memories.
When the leaves start to change colors, the outdoors in Tennessee are wonders to behold. Whether you’re interested in picking some pumpkins from a pumpkin patch or something a little more spooky, here are some of the fun family adventures you may want to consider in our area:
- Boo at the Zoo – Nashville’s Boo at the Zoo event is a exciting trick-or-treat alternative happening nightly October 13th – 29th, 5:00 – 9:00 pm. Bring the kids to the zoo dressed up for a Halloween adventure with carousel rides, pumpkins, a monster mash dance floor, and lots of animal fun. With 10 trick-or treat stations and souvenir bags for kids, you’ve never experienced Halloween like this before.
- Pumpkin patches – Lucky Ladd Farms, Gentry’s Farm, and Honeysuckle Hill Farm are a few of the great pumpkin patches in Metro Nashville with activities that the whole family can enjoy. Take a drive out to the countryside to pick out pumpkins, pet some farm animals, and go through a corn maze.
- Horseback Trail Rides – Take the family out for a horse ride in the beautiful fall weather at one of Nashville’s surrounding trail rides such as Creekside Riding Academy & Stables or Fancy Forest Farm. This is a fun adventure the whole family can enjoy!
- Ghost tours – Do you enjoy a spooky tale? Try the Ghost Tours at the Hermitage or a haunted history tour in Franklin to get into the Halloween spirit with some historic stories and embellished tales.
There are so many fun, seasonal events and activities the entire family can enjoy together as the weather gets cooler. In addition to these events, consider driving away from the city and into the mountains for a weekend cabin getaway or just to see the leaves in the mountains and the wildlife. Hike the Mt. Leconte Summit or check out Laurel Falls at the Great Smoky Mountains National Park for some beautiful fall views and some stunning waterfalls.
