Fun Fall Activities

Fall is finally here, which means there are all kinds of fun activities to do in the countdown to winter!

Outdoor Activities

Apple picking is a classic fall activity that you probably did when you were little, but it can still be fun now! Patterson’s Fruit Farm, located in Chesterland, is open daily from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Aside from pick-your-own apples, they also have a market which sells picked apples, fall decorations, apple cider, and doughnuts. Eddy’s Fruit Farm is another option if you’re looking for apple picking. They also have a store aside from the pick-your-own apples where you can buy fruits as well as other baked goods.

If you would rather take a walk outside and enjoy all of the beautiful colors of changing leaves, you can visit the Holden Arboretum, which is an outdoor living museum with expansive room to take a walk or a jog. You can also go on their canopy walk to see all the beautiful surroundings from a new perspective.

Haunted Houses

If you’re looking for something a little more spooky, there are plenty of haunted houses in our area that are sure to frighten! One highly rated haunted house is Bloodview, located in Broadview Heights. Open every weekend in September and October, admission is $20 on Saturdays and $10 on Sundays for an unlimited pass.

If Bloodview is not the one for you, The Fear Experience is another option. Located in Cleveland, The Fear Experience has four different haunted houses and one interactive activity that you can buy tickets to individually, or collectively. The four haunted houses include the “Biotech Solutions” science-experiment-gone-wrong, the “Centralia County Fair” abandoned carnival, “District 13” industrial wasteland and “The Estate,” an abandoned mansion where horrifying murders took place.

If you have younger siblings, the Hudson Haunted House offers kid matinees for $3 on October 8 and 22; however, they are also open on weekend nights and Halloween. Located in the Oak Grove Park, this haunted house is only $5 for admission and will offer coupons for groups.


Some nights, you just feel like curling up on the couch and watching a good movie. Luckily, there are many Halloween movies (both scary and not scary) to choose from.


Fall (especially in the days leading up to Halloween) is the perfect time to watch horror movies. There is a compiled list here for anyone looking for a good scare on Halloween.

Other movies

Even if you aren’t a fan of horror movies, there are still plenty of movies for you to enjoy! From Nightmare Before Christmas to Beetlejuice and Hocus Pocus, there are dozens of movies that you can enjoy.


If you’re looking for something yummy to make for Halloween, there are plenty of recipes that are perfect for the occasion. From classic apple pie to pumpkin cheesecake and pumpkin chocolate chip cookies, there is no shortage of fall-themed desserts to be made this season. If you’re not in the mood to make something yourself, be sure to look around your local bakeries and coffee shops to see their seasonal specials.
