Fall Activities

Welcome to Fall in Upstate New York!

The leaves are changing colors, the weather is becoming cooler (despite the few warm and humid days we've had this fall), and it's time to make plans to see the fall foliage, go apple or pumpkin picking, and enjoy Halloween.

Upstate New York is known for its delicious apples. Here's a list of apple orchards where you can pick your own apples, taste apple cider and cider donuts, and do other fun activities.

Do you want to see the best fall foliage in the area? Check out this list of places to go "leaf peeping".

Visit one of these pumpkin patches to buy a pumpkin to carve into a jack-o-lantern or decorative gourds.

Here's a list of Halloween events in Albany. These include haunted hayrides, parties, ghost walking tours and even trick-or-treating tips.
