Hey everyone! Katie here with a fall-filled vlog for you! What better way to celebrate the changing of the seasons than by doing some of the fun fall activities around Huntsville? Below are my tips for a great fall day in Huntsville, Alabama. Happy reading!
The Scarecrow Trail
The first stop on my Autumn adventure is the Scarecrow Trail at the Huntsville Botanical Garden. This year there is no set theme so you will definitely find some incredibly creative scarecrows scattered around the garden. Entrance is included with your ticket to the gardens, and the scarecrows will be up from September 1st through October 31st. There is also a sorghum maze and hayrides on Saturdays and Sundays from 1-4pm for those interested! There are so many good scarecrows to choose from, which one is your favorite?
Next up is a short drive to Meridianville to visit Tate Farms. If you want to check a lot of things off your fall bucket list at once, this is the place to go. They have a 65-acre pumpkin patch, hayrides, a barnyard playground, a jumping pillow, and much more. It’s fun for the whole family, whether you’re wandering around the petting zoo or trying to see how far the pumpkin cannon shoots out the pumpkin. Plus, I got to pick my very own pumpkins for my porch! Editors note: After the fire in August 2017, Tate Farms has assured everyone they will be opening on September 25th with renovations.
The last stop on our fall day of fun is the Rocket Republic taproom in Madison. The brewery is housed in a giant warehouse with enough room for darts, ping pong, live music, and cornhole! We came to try the seasonal Steampumpkin ale, made with real pumpkin, and it didn’t disappoint. If pumpkin ales aren’t your favorite, they have tons of other beers to choose from, and the atmosphere will make you want to stay a while!
Thanks for coming along on this fall adventure with me, and I hope you get to check out some of the awesome things to do around Huntsville, Alabama this season!
