When the cooler weather hits and the kids spend their days in school, it’s easy to get a little stir crazy. Use the beautiful fall weather as an excuse to explore everything our fair state has to offer!
- Head to Brown County for a hike or guided horse ride through the lovely autumn leaves. Don’t forget to take a wander through the shops in quaint Nashville, and grab a bite at the historic Hobnob Corner Restaurant.
- It’s apple picking season! Take the kids out to Stuckey Farms and grab your fill of the 27 different varieties of apples. Stop in the store on your way out, and pick up a caramel apple or cup of cider.
- Are you all about Halloween? Check out the Children’s Museum’s Haunted House, the Headless Horseman Hayride at Conner Prairie, or the many terrifying attractions at Hanna Haunted Acres. There are also many spooky, family-friendly ghost tours all around Indianapolis and Hamilton County.
