The fall season is here, and much of the northern hemisphere is morphing into a beautiful medley of oranges, reds, and golds. Here in Naples, Florida, we lack the changing leaves and chilly sweater weather, but that does not mean there is a shortage of fun autumn things to do. Whether it is here in downtown Naples or nearby Marco Island, you can find an array of fun fall activities to get festive during your Vanderbilt Vacation autumn adventure.
Get Festive At The Naples Zoo!
There are several festivals in the area that are perfect for all ages to attend. When you stay in our Vanderbilt beach rentals, we encourage you and the kids to join in a bit of fall fun at the “Boo at the Zoo” celebration at the Naples Zoo. For three days, you can dress up in your best Halloween attire and join the animals of the zoo in a bit of fall time fun. Watch handlers treat the animals to pumpkins and other festive treats while snagging a few of your own. Explore the zoo and take part in special games and activities! The best part — any child in a Halloween costume gets free admission for all three days!
Finding The Best Pumpkin Patch
Though the Gulf Coast may not be an ideal destination for fall foliage and hot apple cider on a brisk morning, you can still find fantastic pumpkin patches. Experience the classic pumpkin patch adventures that so many of us grew up looking forward to every year. For a quick stop for a pumpkin and maybe a few pictures with the colorful gourds and fall decor, stop in at Heavenly Evergreens. If you would like to find a more interactive experience with corn mazes, a you-pick pumpkin patch, and more, visit Farmer Mike’s U Pick Farm. Join in their annual fall festival, try your hand at one of the haunted and not so spooky corn mazes, and grab a homegrown meal from Fresh Harvest Cafe.
A Colorful Walk Through The Naples Botanical Garden
Every year towards the end of October, The Naples Botanical Garden takes hold of the fall wonder we all know and love by opening its doors after hours for visitors. Unlike during the day, this special walk through the garden features a number of special effects and attractions. Make your way throughout the gardens as lights illuminate the way while discovering delicious treats and fun activities as you go. Dress up in your best costume and get ready for a fantastic night of autumn fun for this exciting Naples attraction.
