First off, if you haven’t checked out our “25 Fun Fall Activities” article, you definitely should! It’s packed full of fun adventures to fill your weekends this fall!
Here’s one example from the list: Carter Mountain Orchard!
Carter Mountain is located in Charlottesville, just a little over an hour from Harrisonburg. This orchard has so much to offer aside from apples. There’s a grill, bakery, and country store. The views from the orchard are incredible, too! It’s definitely worth the drive!
This time of year, they also offer hayrides around the orchard. It’s the perfect addition to a fun fall afternoon!
With the leaves starting to change, the view will only get better with colorful fall foliage.
Each day differs with the variety of apples that are available to be picked. So be sure to check their website here for the daily selection.
I haven’t yet visited the grill, but the bakery is fantastic. The apple cider donuts are incredible and an essential part of the experience (even if there’s a long line, it’s worth it!).
All in all, Carter Mountain is a fun and family-friendly place to visit. Put it on your bucket list and mark it off next weekend!
