Fall is here! Albeit a lot different than the past; however, there are still many fall activities we can do while being safe in today's world. Check out our list below for the best fall activities to do this year!
There's nothing like walking through an apple orchard on a brisk Saturday morning surrounded by the colorful leaves and ripe apples ready to be eaten! The best place to pick apples right now is the Family Tree Farm in Red Lion, PA. It is open to the public Friday's and Saturday's from 10AM to 5PM, and you can even pick your own pumpkins while you're there too!
Visit the Zoo
Ever want to feed a giraffe or see what the African penguins are up to? Plan a visit to The Maryland Zoo in Baltimore, where you can see nearly 200 species! There are even special Halloween events planned and even fun parent events, like the annual Sip and Stroll.
Rail Trail Adventure
For more than 20 years, the Heritage Rail Trail County Park has been the go to place for hiking, jogging, bicycle riding, and horseback riding. Now. is the perfect time to see the scenery of the trail turn to mixes of red, yellow, and orange amidst the same countryside President Lincoln saw on his trip to Gettysburg, where he delivered his famous address. Please note that the Heritage Rail Trail is an active railway, so you may see a train on your adventure!
Warm Up By The Bonfire
Marshmallows, check! Graham crackers, check! Chocolate... hmm.
Kickstart your weekends by building a cozy bonfire to sit around and enjoy that much needed break with your family! You'll need a couple things before you get started, such as:
- A couple dry logs (kindling)
- Tinder (you can use some newspaper or dryer lint)
- Safe area to build the bonfire (you can use some rocks or bricks to contain the fire)
- Of course, with any bonfire you need ingredients to make smores
We here at Shrewsbury Learning Center, hope you and your family have a wonderful Fall, full of apple cider, pumpkin faces, scary costumes, and lots of laughs!
