Fun Family Activities for Fall

It’s hard to complain about autumn in central Indiana. The weather is finally cooling off, the trees are beginning to turn different colors, and—best of all—the kids are back in school. Take advantage of the most comfortable weather of the year by piling into your Mike Raisor Buick or GMC vehicle and having some family fun. Here are a few fun, family-friendly things to do this fall:

Go pumpkin picking.

Nothing feels more like fall than carving into a jack-o-lantern, but before you can start cutting, you’ve got to choose the perfect pumpkin. Kids and adults alike can have a blast hopping on a hayride, sipping hot cider, and carefully inspecting gourds for the optimal size and shape. Wea Creek Orchard is an awesome local farm that offers the complete pumpkin patch experience.

Tailgate a football game.

The atmosphere near Ross-Ade Stadium is always exciting on game day—whether you’re taking a walk through campus or braving traffic for a choice spot in the stadium lot. Pack the cooler, the grill, and some chairs and get together with friends for tailgating fun.

 Visit a haunted house or Halloween attraction.

For older kids, haunted houses and spooky parks are the perfect autumn thrill. Since 2011, Evil on Erie has been the premier Halloween haunt in Lafayette, and they’re back open for scares starting in October. For younger kids, how about a corn maze? Try the largest series of corn mazes in Indiana at Exploration Acres.

To get to these autumnal destinations, be sure to pick up a new set of wheels from Mike Raisor Buick GMC.
