Although there are many great things about autumn in NYC, having a suburban, Midwest background leaves some more seasonality to be desired than what the city can offer. Wanting to fill this void, a few of my friends from the Buckeye State and I headed North to Outhouse Orchards, in Croton Falls, NY this past Saturday to fulfill our craving for all things “fall”.
From apple picking and hot cider donuts to corn mazes and pumpkin patches, this place had everything one could imagine to get their season’s fill of activities and beautiful hilltop views. This fantastic place is only about an hour outside of NYC and is accessible via the Metro North! I would definitely recommend this excursion to anyone wanting to escape the city for a day and truly experience the best things about this great season.
