Pumpkin spice lattes (and everything), anyone? Leaves are changing and the crisp fall weather is finally here. While snuggling in with some Netflix sounds ideal, getting outside with a group of friends or your special someone and making fall memories is always something to look forward to. Here’s a list of top rated activities in (and a short car ride away from) Mississauga sure to make some memories.

1. Take A Trip to Springridge Farm

Any childhood nostalgia happening right about now? Springridge is a great time no matter how old or young you are! With the Harvest Festival happening September 24 to October 30, indulge in baking, barbecuing, décor and farm animal petting activities! There’s even a singing chicken show. 2. Go Apple Picking!

A short drive out of the city, Orchalaw Farms has over 20 varieties of apples for you to pick and enjoy. On weekends, they even have free wagon rides where you can pick your own apples and enjoy the beautiful scenic views of the Credit River. It’s also a great place for awesome photo ops, and think of all the pies you can make! 3. Get Active!

Why not head down to the Running Room in Port Credit and put some pep in your step! Fall is perfect running weather, and you’ll have some beautiful scenic routes to inspire you! If you’re feeling even more adventurous, check out the Don Valley Rowing Club, get out there and team up for fitness! 4. Have a Pumpkin Carving Competition 

Pick your favourite pumpkin at your local farmer’s market and have a pumpkin carving competition. Winner gets an entire box of Nestle candy, loser makes the spiked apple cider or witches brew5. Visit a Winery

So many wineries, so little time! Luckily, Niagara Grape and Wine Festival is on every weekend for the entire month of September, so you don’t have to choose between just one! Take the weekend and sip away on your favourites! While you’re at it, be sure to try some of the delicious food vendors as well!
