Forsyth County Fall Favorites

Hopefully, I’m not the only one who LOVES the fall season. I mean really loves the fall season. I love everything about it – the crispness in the air, pumpkin spice everything, football, hoodies, apple picking, corn mazes, and so much more! As I thought about my favorites, I thought it would be fun to put together a “To Do List” for this fall. This isn’t just any type of to-do list, it’s one that I think you will LOVE!

Enjoy During Specific Dates:

Visit Warbington Farms: Open from September 15 – November 3, Warbington Farms is home to all kinds of fun on the farm! They also have a lot of special events so make sure you check their website to see what is coming up.

Play at the Park: This community fun-filled family event is a must go to on September 29 11-8pm.

Visit Kinsey Farms:  Kinsey Family Farm is open for the fall season from September 29 – October 31. As a family, we always get our pumpkins at Kinsey Family Farm every fall. We love having a caramel apple and searching for the perfect pumpkin. Once we are home we carve it together and toast up some fresh pumpkin seeds. YUM!

vickery village farmers market
Vickery Village Farmers Market: Ever since the market opened, I have gone by weekly to get some of my groceries. I can’t help it, I just love supporting the local farms. This farmers market runs on Thursdays from 9-12pm until Dec 20th.

Enjoy Anytime:

Go To A High School Football Game: Being under the Friday night lights is so much fun for the whole family. We have links to all the school’s schedules in our article – High School Football in Forsyth County.
Hike Up Sawnee Mountain To Indian Seats From Visitors Center: In early September, we decided to take a hike from the Visitor’s Center off Spot Rd. First of all, let me tell you that this was a very hard hike. Our whole family went (kids ages 6 and 8) and made it to the top and back down. But afterward, we were totally exhausted! Check the online map to plan your hike. Also, even though it was a hard hike, the 400 calories I burned and the view from the top was worth it.
Forsyth County Parks & Recreation
Hike Up Sawnee Mountain To Indian Seats From Bettis Tribble: Now this is a MUCH easier hike. We can do it round trip as a family in about an hour. It’s still a nice workout but it’s much easier for the kids. Check the online map to plan your hike. And make sure to bring a camera, the view is gorgeous at the top!
Check Out The 20+ Playgrounds in Forsyth County: Can you believe we have over 20 parks and playgrounds in Forsyth County? We love taking this list with us and trying to visit as many as we can in one day.
Go Apple Picking: Take a road trip up north and go apple picking. Freshly picked apples are delicious! There are many places to choose from. {Tip: Make sure you check Groupon before you head out. Sometimes there is a Groupon to save you some money}
Go Through a Corn Maze Challenge
Glamping: Glamping during the fall is all the rage right now. Also, Georgia Glamping Company just added a new leading lady – Roxy the Retro. You can read about her by following this link. Now if you are ready to book your glamping trip, make sure you take a moment and read about our experience & tips with Georgia Glamping Company.
