There are several fun things to do in Atlanta this fall. With my top picks you can ride the ferris wheel at the fair, pick apples in the North Georgia mountains, get lost in a corn maze, visit a real pumpkin patch, get stalked by zombies in a haunted house and much more.
The economy may have you tightening your belt but The North Georgia State Fair, which takes place Thursday, Sept. 22, through Sunday, Oct. 2, at Jim R. Miller Park in Marietta, provides fun for the entire family without breaking the bank.
Hillcrest Orchards is located in the North Georgia Mountains near Ellijay. During their Apple Pickin’ Jubilee (the last 3 weekends of September and each weekend in October) you can pick luscious apples and participate in a number of family fun activities.
Make plans this autumn to visit one of the largest Corn Mazes in the Southeast – Corn Dawgs Corn Maze, Pumpkin Patch & Family Fun Adventure. This new choice for fall family fun in Atlanta opens September 25th.
If you’ve always wanted to know what a real pumpkin patch looks like, then head over to Yule Forest Hwy 155. There are real pumpkins growing on the vine and loads of fall family fun activities.
To find the scariest haunted house in Atlanta follow the spotlights to Netherworld. If you enjoy walking through dark rooms filled with terrifying live actors, amazing special effects, and incredible monsters, this is the place for you.
