The best fall activities in Orlando
Fall—around the country, it’s the time of year when the trees change color, leaves make the perfect crunch and the air starts to chill. For us here in Florida, it’s the time of year when the weather starts to feel just perfect.
And for residents of the Sunshine State, it’s also the perfect time to get outside. The calendar around here tends to match that mood, filling up with dozens of fall activities in Orlando every weekend. There’s so much to choose from, but here are a few of our favorites so you can get out there and make the most of the season.
Visit a pumpkin patch
What pops up into your head when you hear the word fall? That’s right, pumpkins! Pumpkin patches seem to sprout up everywhere this time of year. Perfect for a date night, family fun event or day out with your friends, a pumpkin patch offers picture-perfect photo opportunities and plenty of chances to make memories. Here in Orlando, there are many to choose from. Want to go beyond the patch? Check out Southern Hill Farms’ Fall Festival. There’s always a ton to do at this popular family-owned spot.
Find your way to a corn maze
Do you have that one friend who loves escape rooms? Test them out with the fall version—a corn maze. A corn maze is a great way to get outside, practice decision making skills and to celebrate the fall! Come dressed in your favorite flannel and jeans and take pictures—trust us, you’ll want this framed! Near Orlando, there are a few maze options. Long Scott Farms in Mount Dora is just one way to take part in this fun.
Hit a local festival
With such beautiful weather in Central Florida in the fall, it’s no surprise that many towns and organizations plan fun festivals this time of year. From local churches and schools to farms and venues, it’s not hard to find something to do. If you love art, be sure to check out the Winter Park Autumn Art Festival. Or, turn fall into a fiesta at Lake Eola for the Fall Fiesta in the Park.
Visit the theme parks
There’s always something going on at Orlando’s famous theme parks. In the fall, catch a not-so-scary Halloween party, or up the screams at Halloween Horror Nights. And, if you wait just past Halloween, those holiday lovers can get in the spirit early while still soaking up the fall weather.
Have an outdoor adventure at Orlando Tree Trek
With perfect weather outside, Orlando Tree Trek Adventure Park is the place to be this time of year. Get your blood pumping on our outdoor obstacle course, feel the cool fall breeze as you zipline Orlando and smell the fresh autumn air as you climb our ladders or swing through our natural pine trees.
Tree Trek is a progressively challenging ropes course that encourages the inner-thrill seeker. Each course at our rope park is higher and more exciting than the last, so you can hone in on your five senses and get your body moving. You can gain new skills, and the feeling of accomplishment when you complete your treetop trek is like no other.
Florida is known for being the Sunshine State and tends to be the perfect spring break location, but the hidden secret is what our fall has to offer. The weather is the perfect in-between and adventures in Florida are endless.
