Fall in the Northeast is a true highlight. The trees become brilliant shades of reds, oranges, and golds making the views everywhere magnificent. It’s a joy to just drive around this time of year. I particularly love how the seasons set a pattern of family rituals. For us, Fall means a trip to the local apple orchard. Not only do we come away spending a great day together and loaded with apples, but let’s admit, there are great photo opportunities!
Here are links to a few family favorite orchards west of Boston. I always look for an orchard that offers some additional kid activities. Cider donuts and fresh cider are also a big hit.
Honey Pot Hill Orchards (Stow, MA): The hedge maze and indoor box maze are always are a great challenge.
Shelburne Farm (Stow, MA): Offers pony rides on the weekends. Don’t miss the house cheddar!
Lookout Farm (Natick, MA): Tons of animals, a tram ride and great store.
Tougas Family Farm (Northborough, MA): Offers a wide variety of apples, like Honey Crisps, my personal favorite.
