Fun Things to Do in Indianapolis This Fall

Indianapolis houses for sale sit in a place that hosts the highest-attended single day event of the

Indy 500, has the world’s largest children’s museum, and is an incredibly

friendly place to be.

 

There’s a lot to love about Indy, from the variety of restaurants and cultural happenings to the sporting events and museums to get wrapped up in.

 

Here are some of the top things to do in Indianapolis if you’re visiting this fall.

 

Go apple picking.

One of the best ways to celebrate apple season as it kicks into high gear is to head out and pick your own. Indianapolis has several orchards that open beginning in late August.

 

Anderson’s Orchard has u-pick apples daily as well as an Apple Festival and Craft Fair that takes place at the end of September.

 

Beasley’s Orchard is home to the best apple cider in the state, as evidenced by its multiple wins in the Indiana’s State Cider Contest.

 

Pleasant View has over 20 apple varieties to pick from, while Chandler’s has 75.

 

Catch the sunflowers in bloom.

Conner Prairie’s sunflower fields span three acres and are a sea of yellow for a limited time during the fall. There are three varieties to see.

 

Conner itself is a living history museum. You can visit historical recreations, chat with folks in period costume, or hop up on a hot air balloon for a ride.

 

Sip some vino.

Daniels Winery may serve up adult beverages, but it’s suitable for families as well. There’s plenty of outdoor seating and room to roam.

 

Enjoy beer as well as wine and order a pizza. You can play cornhole, bocce, or chess, or sit back and enjoy the expansive views.

 

You can also catch the tail-end of the winery’s summer concert series, which ends the last week of September.

 

Imbibe in craft spirits.

As the weather cools down you may want to pop inside and tuck into a refreshing drink. Hotel Tango is an operational stillhouse that churns out a variety of spirits like caramel bourbon and limoncello.

 

Take in the foliage.

Holliday Park is host to hiking trails that wind along ponds, gardens, and streams, keeping the scenery fresh as you are surrounded by the golden yellow and burnt orange of the trees.

 

You can also find this if you walk the loop at Central Canal. Not only will you see the changing trees, you also pass the Indiana State Museum, USS Indianapolis Memorial, and Indianapolis Zoo.

 

Or, actually get into the foliage.

If simply observing trees isn’t enough consider hanging out among them. The Go Ape Zipline & Adventure Park has five ziplines that give riders a view of Eagle Creek Park’s dense foliage.

 

If you’ve got time (and energy!), hop on the high ropes course that can take upwards of three hours to complete.

 

Dance along at a music festival.

Indy has some great music festivals that happen before the outdoor activity of the area starts winding down.

 

Holler on the Hill is for lovers of folk, bluegrass, soul, and country sounds. The Post Festival is home to acts that fall into the categories of post-punk or post-rock music.
