With fall break quickly approaching and many students deciding to stay in the Winchester area, us at The Buzz want to give you an insider scoop on what to do around town.
As college students almost all of us have some sort of social media presence. Going to college in a small town like Winchester doesn’t make it easy when it comes to cultivating a flawless instagram page. However, that all changes in the fall. Winchester becomes the perfect town for cute autumnal pictures, ready to make any city-dweller jealous.
Here are the seven most instagrammable fall activities in and around Winchester:
- Apple Picking
Marker-Miller Orchard is super close. Make sure you get some apple cider doughnuts before you leave.
2. Pumpkin Patch
Marker-Miller Orchard or Hill High Farm have a great pumpkin patch. Choose your own or choose one they have on display.
Skyline Drive in the Shenandoah National Park offers some of the most incredible sights while in autumn. Peak leaf-peeping time is between October 22nd and 29th.
Sky Meadows State Park is about 35 minutes away from Shenandoah University. There are about 5 different hikes you can do and it only costs $5 per car to enter.
5. Corn mazes
The Corn Maze in the Plains is the largest corn maze in the area and is known as the top corn maze in the D.C. area. You can do this during the day or night.
6. Surviving a haunted house
Hill High Farm and Devil’s Den are the most popular. You decide which is best.
7. Football games
Go out to see your Hornets play! Or splurge a little bit and grab tickets to see the Redskins play in D.C. You don’t have to be a fan to have a good time!
