Our Favorite Things to Do in the Poconos in the Fall

 With dozens of great things to do in the Poconos in the fall, it’s hard to pick favorites. But here are a few things we know you’ll love!

1. Go camping or take a hike

The gorgeous Poconos are ripe with excellent places to camp. You’ll be up-close-and-personal with the changing foliage! And whether you camp or not, consider a hike for more scenic views of the leaves, environment, and even waterfalls!


2. Pick apples and pumpkins

Nothing says fall like an afternoon picking apples at an orchard! (Unless, of course, you’re picking pumpkins!) Check out Heckman Orchards for both apple and pumpkin picking, or Miller’s Orchard for apples, pumpkins, and sweet cider.


3. Get lost in a corn maze

The corn maze at Klingel’s Farm isn’t your average hay-bales maze. This is an 11-acre maze that’s full of fun and games! Plus acres of pumpkin patches, wagon rides, barn animals, and more!


4. Taste fall at a winery or cidery

For a more “adult” taste of fall, check out some of the incredible Poconos wineries! And RAW Urban Winery and Hard Cidery has a cider to kick off your fall right!


5. Enjoy a scenic drive

Driving down winding roads as leaves flutter and fall is a classic fall experience! You can’t go wrong here, but you might try heading down to Lake Wallenpaupack or to the Delaware Water Gap.


6. View fall colors from a train

Seasonal excursions are offered at the Steamtown National Historic Site and the Lehigh Gorge Scenic Railway. And the best part is, no one has to pay attention to the road: all you have to do is enjoy!


7. Fall Murder Mystery Weekend

For two weekends in November, The French Manor Inn & Spa becomes the place a murder must be solved! This year, you could be the key that solves our “Murder in Cairo” … or you could be the murderer! But book today; these spots go quickly!


Fall into Luxury at The French Manor Inn & Spa

Pack your sweaters, cozy socks, and prepare to experience a luxurious fall at The French Manor Inn. You’ll sleep in extreme comfort in our luxurious suites, perhaps enjoying the comfort of a crackling fire. The gourmet breakfast in the morning will refresh you for the day ahead. We also offer other excellent on-site dining options, as well as many amenities you can’t get at the average B&B. And our excellent spa services certainly elevate any stay.
