If you’re looking for a few socially-distanced activities to celebrate the arrival of autumn, we have some recommendations that you won’t want to miss.
Here’s How to Celebrate Fall in South Boston
Ready to get out and enjoy the crisp fall weather? While it may still be a little hot in Virginia, it won’t be long before the harvest season is in full swing. Here are a few events to look forward to over the next few months.
Check out Oak’s Grove Fun on the Farm
Picking out a pumpkin is a quintessential fall activity that’s fun for just about everyone. And if you’re on the hunt for a nearby pumpkin patch, look no further than Oak’s Grove Fun on the Farm.
Located just two miles outside of Clarksville, this local favorite showcases just about every autumnal attraction you could ask for, including a corn maze, a field full of pumpkins, and hay rides. Oak’s Grove opens for the season on October 12th, weekends only.
Grab some goodies from the Downtown South Boston Farmers Market
Searching for some crisp apples, delicious baked treats, or fresh fall flowers? Head to the Downtown South Boston Farmers Market, which is open throughout the week from sunrise to sunset. Here, you’ll find dozens of local vendors selling everything from produce to crafts, so you can even get a head start on your holiday shopping.
The farmers market also has a “grow-it-yourself” program, as well as a cornhole tournament on October 12th.
Take in the foliage at Staunton River State Park
Nestled just a half hour drive from the heart of South Boston, the Staunton River State Park is the perfect place to take in the beauty of the changing leaves. In total, the park has ten trails, as well as a boat launch and dedicated swimming area.
Want to plan the ultimate getaway? Cabins or campsites are available to rent for at least two nights, and you can even bring along your furry friends. This green space is also a certified International Dark Sky Park, so you’ll have no trouble taking in the undisturbed beauty of the twinkling stars.
Catch a show at the Raleigh Road Outdoor Theatre
There’s nothing quite as nostalgic as a drive-in theatre. And even though it’s an hour away, you won’t regret taking a trip to the Raleigh Road Outdoor Theatre for your next night out. This iconic destination is located just over state lines, and it’s the best place to check out the latest flicks this fall.
