Fall Fever Local Bucket List

Sometimes I find it's easier to check things off my bucket-list than my to-do list. Here's a curated list of some of my favorite local (Maryland, Virginia + DC) fall activities, that will help you procrastinate from your other responsibilities. 

It's not fall season without a trip to the orchard for pumpkins!! I love Butler's Orchard as that's local but there are many, many good ones that have hayrides + live music + food + drinks. 🎃

Fall into the beer pressure + go to the Baltimore Craft Beer Festival at the Canton Waterfront Park in Baltimore, Maryland. It's a super fun celebration of the craft brewing industry, featuring live music, food trucks, + lots of local vendors. 🍺

Take a ride on the Western Maryland Scenic Railroad in Cumberland, Maryland. 🚂

Support local vendors + artisans at a NUMBER of farmer's markets. Small businesses are run on caffeine + your support 

Get medieval with the family at the Maryland Renaissance Festival in Annapolis, Maryland. 🍗

Take a beautiful hike through Sugarloaf Mountain, a national historic landmark in Dickerson, Maryland. Reward yourself with a glass of wine at the Sugarloaf Winery at the end of your hike! 🍷

Check out the fall foliage in any one of the local parks: Great Falls Park, Cunningham Falls State Park, Rock Creek Park, Patapsco Valley State Park or Harpers Ferry National Park. I've visited a bunch more, but these are some of my favorites. 🍂

Visit a beer garden to snag some Oktoberfest specials: Dacha Beer Garden at the Navy Yard in DC is one of my favorites. 🍻

Family friendly Halloween event, Boo at the Zoo at the Smithsonian National Zoo + Conservation Biology Institute.🐘

Go apple picking AND watch a pig race AND have apple cider donuts at the Great Country Farm.🍎 


Hope that was enough to get you through this fall season. If you need more suggestions, I have plenty...
