Fall Family Fun Around Chicagoland and Milwaukee


It is suddenly autumn and outdoor activities turn from fun days at the pool to our fall family favorites. Here are some ideas for enjoying the changing season within a day trip of the Chicagoland and Milwaukee area:


October is the season to get your scare on!  Visit one of these scary places this season:


Corn mazes have become very popular in the last few years so you should have no trouble finding one in your area.  Here are a few to choose from.  Bring the whole family on a crisp and sunny autumn day and enjoy apple picking, fresh cider and apple pie, pumpkins, hayrides, petting zoos, pig races and more fall family fun!  Don’t get too lost in the corn mazes!


You may have heard that Bicycling Magazine recently named Chicago as the #1 bike-friendly city in the U.S. over NYC!  Fall is the perfect time to dust off your bike and take a ride on the beautiful Chicago lakefront.  A nice bonus is you get a chance to see all the beautiful fall colors changing. Don’t forget your helmet!


Hiking is another great way to view the changing colors of the leaves this fall.  Here are a few ideas for you to try.

Whatever you decide to do, make sure to get outside and enjoy the beautiful weather.  It will be getting cold before you know it!
