We finally welcomed in the first day of Fall, and it also brought along some cooler weather here in the upstate. This season is a unique one, as is this year! A lot of things have looked different for us this year. But one thing I’m thankful for is that Fall still feels like Fall, and it’s making me have all the nostalgic feelings. Fall brings good memories for me of haunted houses, corn mazes, and apple orchards. So this year, I wanted to take life by the horns and create a Fall bucket list to make the most of this season! Keep reading for my top picks on what to do near Greenville, SC this Fall! Most of these spots open up for their Fall season on September 26th!
Visit Denver Downs: Our favorite things to do here were the corn maze and the multiple haunted houses they had at the back of the property.
Visiting the small town of Brevard or Hendersonville: We love any excuse to take a little road trip. These two little towns are among our favorites for a day trip! Stop at Rocky’s for a malted milkshake in this authentic Brevard soda shop!
Visiting MadWorld: We have not done this yet, but we want to go every year! It’s supposed to be one of the top haunts in the nation. We are going to go this year finally!
Hiking up at Table Rock: It’s a hike! That’s for sure. Make sure you’re up for the task. But the view is absolutely worth it.
Apple Picking at Skytop: Let’s be honest, my favorite part of visiting is their famous apple cider donuts! Enough said!
Ziplining at The Gorge: We went in February, and it would be even more amazing in the Fall with all the leaves changing! The most beautiful mountain views I’ve seen.
Spending the day at Dollywood: The season to go to Dollywood is the Fall! Succotash, fall decorations, it’s just the quintessential Fall location! Also, a short way from another one of my favorite Fall destinations, Gatlinburg, TN!
Drive-In Movie at the Auto Drive-In: The cutest place in Greenwood, Sc that will make you feel like you’re back in 50’s. It’s one of the few left of its kind. They actually have really good burgers there too!
Attend a Football Game: Go Tigers! I know sports look different this year, but we are hoping to make it to Death Valley for at least one socially distanced game this season.
Carve Pumpkins with friends: Or paint them! I’m thinking about trying that this year. Less mess and manpower required! 🙂
Attend a Fall Festival:
Go to the Drive-Thru SC State Fair: The fair just won’t be the same this year. It’s been such a nostalgic place for me the past few years with some of the best memories. But I guess with this new drive-thru set-up, I’ll still be able to snag my favorite fair food item– the gyro!
We hope you have the best time this Fall! Remember, life is what you make it! Don’t forget to leave your stress at work and make some fun memories despite our current circumstances this Fall. Life is moving by, whether we like it or not. Let’s make the most of it this season! We’re thankful for all the activities we’ll still be able to enjoy this Fall! 🙂
