I was searching for things to do with my family this fall season, and I was surprised by how much there was to do! Way more than I can put in here. I did promise on my social media pages that I would share my research with them, so here is my compiled list of things that were interesting to me and not too scary for my family, given that I have a 9 and 4 year old.

Gilrease Orchard features pumpkin picking, a hay ride (weekends), mazes, checking out the chicken coop and desert tortoise habitat, sunflower field, apple cider donuts and breakfast, and of course some yummy apple and pear cider. My family went the last time we lived in Vegas, and we LOVED it! The donuts and cider are to die for!
