7 Activities for Your Fall Getaway

Fall is full of fun activities, and there is always something for everyone to enjoy. Plan your next getaway around some of these activities.

Good Earth State Park

Located on the border of South Dakota and Iowa, Good Earth State Park offers miles of hiking trails where you can watch the leaves fall and listen to nothing but the peaceful sounds of nature and the crunching of leaves beneath your shoes. Make sure to stop at the Visitor Center where you can learn about the significance of the area to the Native American heritage.

Country Apple Orchard

Fall is all about apples, pumpkins, cider, and flannel, right? Well, it’s time to bust out your favorite flannel shirts and sweaters to get in the fall spirit at the Country Apple Orchard. Pick apples from the trees, grab that perfect pumpkin, and treat yourself to some homemade pie and cider.

Great Shots

Crisp fall weather and golf? Sounds like a perfect pairing. Great Shots has heated bays spread out across the three-level facility. Take your best swing in a variety of interactive games that can be suited for any experience level. Bonus: their food menu is full of delicious items that can either be shared or kept all to yourself.
