I’ve anxiously been waiting this time of year since the blistering heat in July, and even though it seemed to take forever, fall is finally here! Cue me happy dancing around my house to Monster Mash.
Fall is my favorite, it always has been. To me, there is something magical about the time of year between spending all day at the pool in the summer and being cooped inside while the snow quietly falls during winter. Fall is the perfect in-between. Growing up, it was Saturdays watching college football with my dad and decorating the front porch with pumpkins with my mom on a Sunday. It was high school football games, fall festivals, and hay mazes. Honestly, this season brings me so much joy, and I hope it does for you, too. Join me in making this the best fall yet!
Festivals. We are no stranger to festivals! If you’re looking to take the kids to a safe and fun festival, we’ve got you covered. From Blanchard to Ardmore, there’s something for everyone, everywhere.

Pumpkin Patches. If pumpkin patches are your game, Chickasaw Country is the name! Throughout south-central Oklahoma, there are many different pumpkin patches and mazes that are a fun way to spend a weekend in October. Below are a few of our favorites:
If you’ve driven on I-35 then you know the Arbuckle Mountain region is covered in trees. Eventually, these trees will start the transition to dormancy and those fall colors we all anticipate will arrive. That’s when you should hop in your car, grab a cup of coffee and plan a day trip to check the area out. Other areas that are beautiful for fall foliage is the Chickasaw National Recreation Area and the Blue River. Snap a few pictures for your Instagram and use #VisitChickasaw.
