It’s finally Fall! Everyone is always saying how they love Fall for the Pumpkin Spice. I’m always looking for everything apple and what better State for apple things than the Apple State. Personally, I love everything about Fall — the flannel, the sweaters, the cold air, the foliage, and the boots! There is seriously nothing better.
My favorite place to go in East of Saratoga toward Vermont. We brought some friends there in September and it was so much fun! Roughly 20mins from downtown Saratoga, Schuylerville is the place to be.
For some history, start by going to the Saratoga Monument for a little history lesson and gorgeous views of the Vermont Mountains and all the other activities you’re going to do for the day. Built in the late 1800’s, this Monument has 188 steps to the top.
After the Saratoga Monument, head over to Saratoga Apple for the best Cider and Cider Donuts! For others, you can also do a tasting of both beer and hard cider (if you’re in the mood of course!) You can also go apple picking but be aware it’s expensive here and I don’t recommend it. It’s $10 worth of apples for each person. So unless you’re baking a lot, I can’t imagine that’s a deal worth taking.
Looking for an awesome spot for Pumpkins and a Corn Maze? The head across the street from Saratoga Apple to Schuyler Farms. It’s perfect for families, the Maze is a little expensive ($8 a person) but it’s worth it. It was really fun and pumpkins are super cheap there! We got three adorable (smaller) pumpkins for only $5.
