Fall in Northern Virginia is beautiful and exciting. I wanted to put together a quick guide of all the fall family fun activities you can do with your family and friends, in addition to getting your photos done at a fall mini session! Below are a list of apple picking farms, fall festivals, and Halloween frights for those that like it a little scary.
Apple picking is a tradition in Northern Virginia and we are lucky to have so many farms that grow so many different varieties. Make sure to check the websites, some farms finish apple picking in September, but most go through the end of October.
Fall Festivals/Pumpkin Patches
Fall festivals are so fun and we have been visiting many of those listed below for years. These festivals have so many things to do, so make sure you plan enough time to do everything. From bounce pillows to hayrides there is so much to do!
While my family is not much into frights (not sure they are old enough yet), here is a list of haunted attractions in VA. Please make sure to check the websites for information on the scares so you can judge whether your kids are old enough!
Fields of Fear at Cox Farms – Centreville VA – Recommended for kids 12 and up
Haunted Nightmares at Hill Farm – Winchester VA – Evenings are not recommended for kids, Daytimes hours are more appropriate.
Skocktober – Leesburg Va – This is a PG13 haunted scare rated fifth in the US.
Workhouse Haunt – Lorton VA – This is recommended for kids 13 and up
Haunted Hill – Partlow VA – This is recommended for kids 13 and up
If I have left anything off the list let me know, I love supporting other businesses! Happy Fall Yall!
