    Five Fab Fall Experiences

    by Casey | Posted on October 6th, 2011

    Head to the country this weekend to mingle with the animals, pick a pumpkin or two, hit the rapids, or soar through the canopy to see how the foliage is coming along in Virginia.

    1.  Fall Farm Tours

    The Fauquier County Farm Tour is this Saturday, October 8, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. It’s a self-guided tour, meaning you can make  your way to just one or all of the farms hosting demonstrations and sharing their animals. After all, what child doesn’t want to meet a kid? Included on tour is Molon Lave Vineyards in Warrenton and Seven Oaks Lavender Farm in Catlett. Print the Brochure

    The Loudoun Farm Color Tour is next weekend, October 15-16, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. It, too, is a self-guided tour with the farms available to you as you wish. There are 25 farms on tour, including Clyde’s Willow Creek Farm in Broadlands, Crooked Run Orchard in Purcellville, Farmer John’s Wayside Fruit and Vegetable Market in Leesburg, and Ticonderoga Farms in Chantilly.

    2.  Take a Scenic Drive - Remember our “11 for ’11″ post from early September? Bookmark or print that thing and get movin’!

    3.  Hit the trail, wine trail, that is. Virginia has 17 trails and the drives are gorgeous! Some wine trails include mead and cider, while others include whiskey. Grab a designated driver and sip your way across Virginia.

    4.  Go big or go home. Whitewater season is currently in full effect at Breaks Interstate Park in Dickenson County. The water from John Flannagan Dam and Reservoir is released each Saturday and Sunday of October creating rapids of class two through six (yes, class SIX) through Breaks Gorge. Not for the faint of heart.

    5.  Glide through the foliage on a zip line!

    Bryce Resort’s zip line is running through October 22, so slide high before they start thinking about snow. Open Saturdays only at 1:30 and 3:30 p.m. Advanced reservations are required (skischool@bryceresort.com).

    Wilderness Adventure at Eagle Landing in New Castle offers a 900′ zip line and other great activities for a fun fall day in the Valley. Open Saturdays and Sundays at 10 a.m. by reservation only. (540-864-6792)
