Take a trip to Green Bluff

Many will say that no fall is complete, without a trip to Green Bluff. In just a short 15-minute drive for most, you can access more than 30 family-owned farms. You can find wide varieties of apples (that you have fun picking from the orchards yourself or purchase in amounts pre-picked for you), pumpkin patches, hayrides, corn mazes, music, and so much more.

Take a walk in the park

Enjoy the crisp, cool air and the beautiful changing colors while stretching those legs in one of our local parks. From the heart of downtown at Riverfront Park, to Manito Park, Finch Arboretum, and everywhere in between, now is the time to go and watch the leaves falling before they’re replaced by snow.
