Fall in North Georgia is a beautiful time to visit, and of course The Hotel at Avalon offers the finest, most luxurious accommodations for the seasonal getaway. If you’ve got family with you on the vacation, you’re in luck: There are just about limitless possibilities for all-ages autumn fun with our Autograph Collection hotel here in Alpharetta, Georgia as your home base.

Here are some of the family-friendly events and activities on tap this fall in our neck of the woods!

Corn Mazes

When it comes to family fall traditions, a jaunt in a corn maze or two ranks right up there. With Hotel at Avalon accommodations, you’ve got plenty of North Georgia corn mazes (not to mention the commonly associated pumpkin patches) within ready reach, including the Buford Corn Maze (4470 Bennett Road, Buford, GA), right next door to the old Haunted Forest; Uncle Shuck’s Corn Maze & Pumpkin Patch (4520 Highway 53 E, Dawsonville, GA), also host to a “corn cannon”; and the multiple corn mazes (and haunted barns, and mechanical bull, etc.) at Copper Creek Farm (1514 Reeves Station Rd SW, Calhoun, GA).

The Alpharetta Farmers Market’s Last Stretch

The fantastic produce, baked treats, and other foodstuffs—plus the boutique crafts, live music, and all-around good times—of the Alpharetta Farmers Market can still be enjoyed for a few more Saturday mornings at Old Canton Street and Milton Avenue before it shuts down for the season. The last 2018 Alpharetta Farmers Market is October 27th.

Groove Out at the 2018 Wire & Wood Songwriters Festival

Downtown Alpharetta hosts the 6th Annual Wire & Wood Songwriters Festival, which features singer-songwriters and bands from all over the nation, on Friday, October 12th and Saturday, October 13th.

Old-Time Fall Pleasures in Apple Orchard Alley

A lovely drive north of metro Atlanta is Apple Orchard Alley, centered on the hamlet of Ellijay and featuring a slew of u-pick and farmstand apple orchards along State Highway 52 that put the spotlight on the autumn bounty. And take note: Ellijay is hosting the 47th Annual Georgia Apple Festival on October 13th and 14th as well as October 20th and 21st: the perfect family-friendly fall bash with loads of arts-and-crafts vendors, kid’s activities, parades, and plenty of apple-y goodness.
