Harpers Ferry Maryland

Fall officially starts one week from today, but today’s cool weather feels like Fall already! Fall is, personally, my favorite time of the year and I’d like to share some of my favorite activities. Enjoy!
Maryland Rennassiance Festival
MD Renn Fest

Revel Grove, located in Crownsville Maryland, boasts a full medieval town complete with jousting, mead, turkey legs and street performers. No tents with plastic tables here folks, but full buildings were everyone looks the part! Great for kids of all ages, there is something for everyone to enjoy. Rock Climbing, face painting, music, massage, feats of dexterity (Ax throwing) and even elephants!

Apple Picking
Apple Picking

Get your hands dirty and get some exercise while you are at it! Apple picking is easy and requires no bending down like berry picking. I did a lot of apple picking with my grandfather when I was little, so I know first hand how much fun this can be for children.

There is an online directory of orchards with an easy to use map to find an orchard near you. Always call ahead before making plans to make sure of the open picking hours. Then, promise an apple pie to the best behaved child, that will get them motivated!
