I love the fall and the many things there are to do. Texas actually has some beautiful places to explore and visit. I have made a list of my favorite top 10 places to go during the fall season.
Pumpkin patch– Barton Hill Farms has it all. They have a corn maze, rides, activities, food, music, and most importantly the best pumpkins to choose from.
Take a hike– Lost Maples State Natural Area is a beautiful area to see the beautiful fall colors. It’s also great for fishing, camping, and bird watching. It is located in Vanderpool Texas. Two hours west of San Antonio. Note: The best time to go is during the week. They will close on the weekends if it gets over capacity. They can’t make reservations for day use.
Go Camping- Inks Lake State Park is a hidden gem in the hill country. It is located in Burnet Texas. It’s an hour north west of Austin. This is a great place to see scenic waterfalls, geocache, have a picnic, camp, fish, and to do watersports.
Go to the Renaissance Festival-The Texas Renaissance Festival is located in Todd Mission, Texas. It opens September 30th – November 26th. This is great family fun to go back in time with the Kings, Queens, Lords, Ladies, knights, and so forth. They have many performers and a range of activities. They also have food from all over the world.
Take a ride on a hot air balloon– Austin Balloon Ride is a great place to see the beautiful hill country and around Austin Texas.
Take a scenic train ride– On the Austin Steam Train you can see the gorgeous hill country and partake in murder mysteries, and during Christmas the kids can’t help Mrs. Claus serve cookies and hot cocoa.
Have a picnic– Hermann Park in Houston takes the first place position in my book for the space, the beautiful Japanese Garden, train for the kids, and pedal boats to take on the water.
Eat the best Apple Pie– Love Creek Orchards in Medina, Texas takes the best apple pie award.
Go horseback riding- Widow Maker Trail Rides is located in SouthLake Texas. It’s a beautiful trail and the instructor is great, and very nice places to stop and take pictures.
Take a weekend trip– Boerne Texas is a great place to see the fall colors, shop, eat great food, explore the local cave and nature center, go to the wineries, and take part in the festivities during the weekend. Boerne is not as populated as some other hill country towns like Fredericksburg Texas. That’s why it’s my top pick.
