There is nothing like Fall in the PNW. The leaves are changing colors, the crisp morning air, and all things pumpkin. The Willamette Valley has so many activities to enjoy and celebrate this season, here are the top 9 we could roundup for you.
 
1.    Pumpkin Patch
 
Visiting the pumpkin patch is necessary for the Fall season, even though it’s no longer October, having a pumpkin out for November is right in season for this harvest time.
 
2.    Bush Park
 
For a beautiful walk along the changing leaves and tree-lined paths, visit Bush Park. Not only is it beautiful but the trees help shield you from the rain.
 
3.    Apple Cider Donuts
 
Many pumpkin patches and stores in the area feature apple cider donuts that are amazing! The perfect complement to apple cider, chai tea, or a cup of coffee.
 
4.    Oregon State Capital State Park Trees
 
The park is a sight to see in the in the Fall with all the trees changing to the most beautiful shades of orange, yellow, and red.
 
5.    Corn Maze
 
Getting lost in the corn maze is something that should happen at least once in your life! Even if you don’t get lost, you still have fun!
 
6.    Carve a pumpkin
 
Whether it’s a pumpkin patch pumpkin or one perfectly selected from the grocery store, you have to carve it for your porch! Have fun and be creative with your design.
 
7.    Jump in the leaves
 
All those pretty leaves eventually start to fall so why not jump in them and have a leaf throwing fight before they are gone for the season?
 
8.    Eat pumpkin flavored goodies!
 
Pumpkin bread, muffins, scones, smoothies, truffles, etc. This is the time of year to partake in all the pumpkin treats!
 
9.    Toast Pumpkin Seeds
 
Toasting pumpkin seeds is easy and delicious. You can season them or keep them plain! Great for adding into a homemade trail mix as well.
 
   
Have fun this Fall season!
