Apple Picking, pig racing

Rows and rows of trees surrounded by big open fields. You can feel the crisp autumn air against your warm skin. A few joys of getting to pick your own apples. At Stuckey’s Farm ,right outside of Noblesville in Sheridan, you can enjoy their fun, delicious apple picking and all the other activities they have to offer. During their harvest festival season you can enjoy a eight acre corn maze, wagon rides, huge 60 and 160ft slides, and throughout the day pig races. Along with picking your own apples, there are tons of apple treats you can enjoy including apple cider donuts and slushies. 

Horse Riding

As the leaves change colors and temperatures drop, fall approaches and the perfect horse riding season appears. If you’re one for enjoying scenery and living life in the moment, horseback riding is perfect for you. At K-Trails Equestrian Adventure in StrawTown, take life (and your horse) on a journey to be remembered. Whether participating in guided trails with your family or sunset rides with a significant other, you’re sure to be satisfied. 

Fall Drinks

Nothing tastes more like fall than, well, fall themed drinks. From chain shops like Starbucks to local gems like Noble Coffee and Tea, there’s definitely no shortage of fall specialty lattes anywhere. These drinks are sure to fit your needs and get you in a spooky mood.

Pumpkin Patch, corn maize, hay rides

Pumpkin pie, pumpkin pots, and decorating pumpkins. There’s so many possibilities with pumpkins. Enjoy a day picking out your favorite pumpkin, getting lost in a corn maze, or petting animals at the petting zoo. Fall is calling and so is Russell Farms where all these activities are available.


Spooky Movies

It was a dark cold and stormy night when— boo! A poll regarding NHS students suggests that a majority prefer classic horror but there is a slight  preference towards movies such as Conjuring, IT, and Insidious. If those don’t get you into the fall spirit? No worries! Here’s the top fall movie picks to get you in a spooky mood.
