As summer begins to fade and the leaves begin to turn, there’s a certain anticipation in the air for the fall season to begin in earnest. The crisp air and holiday season are just around the corner – are you ready to greet it? Don’t worry if you’re still on the lookout for activities to keep you and your loved ones occupied after the seasons change. Let’s take a look at some fun fall local spots to visit!
Yoder’s Farm is a great place to visit at just about any time, but the fall season really brings its attractions and charms to new heights. It’s the perfect spot to enjoy some Halloween-themed activities, including our very own Fall Festival to be held on September 20th. If you’re looking for a corn maze, pick the perfect pumpkin, or enjoy a hayride, Yoder’s has exactly what you’re after. Consider spending a weekend or two on the farm and take in some sun while getting ready for Halloween!
Drumheller’s Apple Orchard
A fifth-generation family farm, Drumheller’s Orchard is a great way to spend the day. They host two apple festivals, for example, that are sure to please even the most exacting of apple aficionados. You can visit in September or October to see what the orchard has to offer. Events include a pumpkin patch, a corn maze, a kid’s zone, and an apple sling shot, not to mention all manner of delicious beverages and treats. Come let the kids run around and get some of that energy out of their systems while you enjoy fresh cider or maybe a slice of pie.
Haunted Houses – October
Whether you’re a native or will be visiting the area during the Halloween season, October is a great month to spend some time in Lynchburg. The city has a variety of spooky attractions that are sure to leave you as thrilled as you are chilled. The Woods of Terror on Church Street, for example, are a great way to spend an adventurous evening. The Hexed Haunted Attraction is another fun location to visit. Located just 15 minutes from Roanoke, Blacksburg, and Virginia Tech, this centrally-located attraction boasts both a haunted house and a haunted maze. You might also consider visiting Scaremare or Smith’s Pumpkin Patch.
Zombie Walk – Oct 19th
Last but certainly not least is the Lynchburg Zombie Walk, held on October 19th from 5:30 to 7:30 PM. This event invites participants to dress up as the zombie of their dreams (or nightmares) and stagger around the downtown area. This attraction also doubles as a canned food drive and the best zombie costumes (adult and child) will be judged at the end of the evening. It’s a great way to do some good while also enjoying the Halloween season.
Lynchburg is a great place to live any time of the year, although it’s fair to say that our fall attractions are some of the best around. If you’re interested in learning more about the area and how you might be able to call it home, reach out to us today!
