5 Must Do Autumn Activies in the Southern Tier

OK, so summer is now “unofficially” over. That doesn't mean it's time to lock ourselves in our homes for the next 6 months. There is plenty that the Southern Tier has to offer during the beautiful Fall months. There's still plenty of time until the snow flies so get out there and enjoy yourselves. Here's a list of the top 5 things you should take part in this Autumn.

Check Out The Fall Foliage



There is no doubt about it… there aren't many places in the world that are as beautiful as the Southern Tier in Autumn. Viewing the fall foliage at the peak of its color never gets old. So visit a local park (Wolfe Park and Chenango Valley State Park are my favorites) and soak in Fall's beauty!

Take In A Binghamton Senators Game



Fall is also the favorite time of year for many Southern Tier residents because of the return of Binghamton's favorite pastime: HOCKEY! You haven't experienced small town hockey until you've seen a Saturday night game at the Broome County Veterans Memorial Arena. The tickets are inexpensive and the thrills are bountiful!

Pick Fresh, Delicious Apples At Apple Hills



New York grows some of the most delicious apples in the country. Apple Hills in Binghamton has several huge orchards where customers can pick their own apples. It's a nice way to spend part of a cool fall day, snack on some fresh picked apples, and take home tons of apples for a great price.

Visit Jackson’s Pumpkin Farm



Located in Endicott, NY, Jackson's Farm is fun for all ages. They have great activities all Autumn long including hay rides, farm animals, face painting and a scary haunted house. Oh, and don't forget the pumpkins! They have hundreds to choose from in all sizes. What a great way to spend the day!

Visit The Cider Mill



The Cider Mill in Endicott has been a Southern Tier staple for decades. They make fresh cider and donuts every day on site. You are welcome to come watch as they press fresh apples into their cider and as they fry up some delicious home made donuts. The Cider Mill also has a farm-stand where you can purchase fresh fruits and vegetables as well as a Playhouse where they put on fabulous shows most of the year! It's a must see!
