There is a joy that can be found in every season of the year but we at Vacation Properties Made Simple believe there is something extra joyous about the fall season, especially in our Massanutten hometown! The crispness of the air is cool enough to let us wear those pumpkin-colored sweaters and chocolate tweed blazers for the first time. The smell of smoke from the fire’s built-in fireplaces wards against the evening chill. That first taste of pumpkin spice latte that warms the blood and refreshes the soul. These fall activities in Massanutten could take place almost anywhere in the world but will somehow seem that much more special when enjoyed from the comforts of our Virginia Vacation Properties Made Simple seasonal sanctuaries!
Fall Activities In Massanutten
Do us a favor. Close your eyes, just for a minute, and picture what your ideal Fall outdoor expedition looks like. Are the trees bursting with a kaleidoscope of fiery colors? Does the air feel cool enough that you feel comfortable walking but not so cold that you lose the feeling in your toes and fingers? Perhaps you are walking along the same trails you skied on during a previous imaginary visit, feeling the beauty of the moment touch your soul! If all of these images came to mind during your brief escape to paradise, you already know what a hike along the trails will resemble! The Massanutten Ridge Trail is one of our favorite trails to hike in the fall, but if you just aren’t up to a 71-mile hike in the woods, the trails that run through the Lion’s Centennial Community Park may be the solution! The well-maintained trail takes you along the water’s edge and while it offers breathtaking photo opportunities at any time of the year, during fall the pictures you take will be absolutely stunning!
Fall Festival, October 8, 11:30-5:30 PM, Massanutten Resort
We can’t decide which we prefer more, a Christmas festival offering gifts to purchase, festive décor, live entertainment, food vendors, beer and wine, kids activities, or Fall festivals providing all of the above, plus a breathtaking scenic chair lift ride through the trees! Ok, yes, we can, it’s the Fall festival, because, well, those views, and if you are of like mind, the Fall Festival at Massanutten Resort will make your season! Offering a beer garden and wine & cider tastings for the over 21 crowds, a fun kid’s activity zone for your favorite tiny travelers, and, of course, that fabulous ride through the trees that will absolutely change the way you look at this spicy season, this is the best way we know to celebrate the advent of fall! Ticket prices range from $5 to $15.
Back Home on the Farm, 2915 Willow Run Road in Harrisonburg
This adventure involves a short road trip lasting about half an hour, but the views will make it special and the fall fun found Back Home on the Farm will make it wonderful! This is another festival, this one involving a 7-acre Pumpkin Patch where the kiddos can pick their own pumpkins to bring back to your seasonal sanctuary, a corn maze, wagon rides, and so much more fall excitement we could go on for days and not reach the end of the list! Costing $12 per person (under 2 is free) and open from September 6 through October 30th, this unique opportunity for a fall frolic will be enjoyed by everyone in your traveling group, especially if you check out their spooktacular Enchanted Garden!
