10 Things to Do In San Antonio This Fall
Summer is almost over and shortly, fall will say hello! Fall brings fun times for your friends and family with lots of amazing festivities to be apart of and experience. Whether you’re a long time local, new to the area, or just visiting, you won’t have a hard time finding a fun activity this fall in San Antonio.
1. Attend a Festival
Although some of these may be repeats later on in this post, this list of San Antonio Festivals is a great resource. It does a great job of providing the dates, times and explanations of what each festival entails. The festivals repeated in this blog are in my opinion, “Must-Do’s” for every family this fall.
2. Visit Apple Orchards
Love Creek Orchard is a short drive out of San Antonio in Medina, Texas. While San Antonio has plenty of pick-your-own farms, apple picking is a fall tradition worth starting. You can make candy apples, make apple pie or even an apple cobbler. You’ll have the fun experience of “farm to table” in your home.
3. Go on a Family Camp Trip
One of the best ways to bond with your family is getting into the great outdoors, away from technology and other distractions. This list has the best places to camp near San Antonio where you can read reviews, and see real pictures of what camping at that location would look like! If you plan on taking children, here’s a blog on how to camp with kids!
4. Visit Devine Acres Farms
Take a hayride or go fishing at “the old watering hole”. Devine Acres Farms is a great place to take the kids in the fall. Their Fall Country Fest is one that they prepare for all summer long! While you’re there, you can even spot out a potential Christmas tree for when the time comes.
5. Attend the Zoo Boo at the San Antonio Zoo
Weekends in October are a lot of fun for the San Antonio Zoo. Zoo Boo takes place every Saturday and Sunday. Although it’s a non-scary event, it allows kids to dress up in their Halloween costumes, participating in games, contests, and pumpkin painting.
6. Take a Hike
The fall is a gorgeous time to hike as the leaves are changing color and provide breathtaking scenery. The weather is also much more bearable to hike in rather than the hot summer time. San Antonio also has incredible waterfalls and watering holes to see along your way.
7. Pick Pumpkins
Going to a pumpkin patch is a staple to a good fall experience. The San Antonio area has great pumpkin patches for plenty of picking and pictures! You’ll have fun letting the kids or grandchildren run around the patch.
8. Check Out Sunday Jazz at the Witte
The Witte Museum is a great place to visit all year round, however certain Sundays in the fall are fun for Jazz lovers. You can enjoy a relaxing afternoon listening to Jazz on September 10th, October 8th, and November 12th.
9. Go to Fright Fest at Six Flags
If you’re looking for a scary fall adventure, Six Flags’ Fright Fest is the choice for you. Their slogan is “thrills by day” and “frights by night”. The time you’re there will determine just how much of a scare you’ll get.
10. Attend San Antonio’s Luminaria Festival
November 10-11 will hold 2017’s annual Luminaria Festival. This dynamic arts organization holds a multi-arts festival each year, partnering with the city of San Antonio for arts and economic development. This year will be their 10th annual festival, with free tickets on Friday night, November 10th, 2017.
