Hands-On Fun

Go on a Hayride at Kinsey Family Farms
Kinsey Family Farm is the perfect place to find the best fall and Halloween pumpkins. In addition to your typical orange pumpkins, you’ll also find decorative red, white, and even green pumpkins. The fall season is not complete without a country hayride! Throughout the week and on weekends, you can hop on a fun hayride around this scenic farm. Go here for more info.

Stroll the BeltLine
This 22-mile loop gets better every year, with art installations to find and Atlanta’s tree canopy to enjoy. The Beltline’s group bike tours are a great way for participant to finish a 3-hour course, pedalling through neighborhoods and nature they may never have visited before. Just choose your nearest access point and begin your exploration! Find out more here.

Pick the Perfect Pumpkin at a Pumpkin Patch
While the grocery store will deliver on your pumpkin needs, it’s the fun fall perks—like hayrides, mazes, and inflatables, not to mention the acres of pumpkins—that will have you loading up your car and heading to the farm this fall. Check out our favorite spots, here.

Visit DeKalb Farmer’s Market
This huge market is full of culinary wonders—including an International Products Department that includes things like dried fruits from Thailand and Turkish roasted nuts—and you can spend hours checking out the seafood, exotic fruits, and other wares. Here‘s all you need to know.

Find Your Way Out of a Corn Maze at Jaemor Farm
Try your hand at escaping the world-famous Jaemor Farm’s Corn Maze, then enjoy a whole fall farm experience that includes hay rides, farm slides, a petting zoo, farm skeeball, a pumpkin train, duck races, tricycle races, apple cannons and concessions – as well as a mini-maze for those who want a quicker visit. Here’s where to go.

Pumpkin Festival at Stone Mountain Park
Play by day as you enjoy family-friendly park attractions and special fall entertainment featuring new Magic Shows and some of your favorite classic storybook characters!
