🍂Leaves are changing… which can only mean one thing: it’s time to grab a flannel and enjoy the crisp cool air because it’s fall in Wisconsin. The season is short, sweet, and sometimes wicked, so take the time to enjoy an experience. Harvest season is upon us. From pumpkin patches to apple orchards, good times are ripe for the picking. Check out all Green Bay and amazing state of Wisconsin.
From the Packers’ first kick-off in September until the snowflakes fall gently onto the the ground in November, fall is in the air. Your fall bucket lists may vary from ours, but the time spent with friends and family matters the most. Here are our favorite fall activities: tailgating, pumpkin carving, and everything in between.
Visit a Pumpkin Patch
One of the most quintessential fall things is carving a pumpkin for your front door steps. You can’t do that until you’ve visited a pumpkin patch and turned over a dozen pumpkins looking for the perfect one. Bring your family and a camera for these cute fall activities, as there is no place more photographic than a pumpkin patch. They can be found all over Wisconsin, but we’ve gathered a few of our favorites below for you.
• Blaser’s Acres, Green Bay, WI
• Mommsen’s Harvest Hills, Rice Lake, WI
• Happ’s Pumpkin Patch, Trevor, WI
Pick Apples at an Orchard
Apple picking is one of those fall things that leads to several more fun fall activities like baking pies, making caramel apples, and enjoying both with warm apple cider. Before you can get to any of that, however, you need to take yourself to an orchard to hand pick the very best apples. Similar to finding the best pumpkins, this fall activity can be found all around Wisconsin, but we’ve put together a few of our favorite orchards to help you decide.
• Maple Leaf Orchard, Spring Valley, WI
• Oneida National Apple Orchard, Oneida, WI
• Apple Barn Orchard and Winery, Elkhorn, WI
Sample the Local Brews
Oktoberfest is here, and every local craft brewery is putting its own spin on the classic Marzen beer. A tour of the local brews is high on our list of fall activities for adults. Try a pumpkin ale or caramel apple sour, as the seasonal favorites won’t be available for long. After touring your local establishments, take a trip to three of Wisconsin’s most famous craft breweries.
• New Glarus Brewery, New Glarus, WI
• Badger State Brewing, Green Bay, WI
• Titletown Brewing, Green Bay, WI
Since 2018, the NS Insurance name has been synonymous with customer satisfaction and proactive customer service.
As the colors on the leaves begin to reach their peak, drive to find the most scenic viewpoints in Wisconsin. Tour the great state parks, get out to hike a few trails and don’t forget to stop at a few great lakes along the way. It may be one of the simplest autumn activities, but it is not one to be missed. Wherever you start your road trip, include one or all of these state parks:
Tailgate and catch a game
Tailgating is the number one thing to do during fall for all the cheeseheads and badger fans. September marks the start of the regular season for the Packers when fans fill up the parking lots around Lambeau Field. If Green Bay is out of reach, there are many college and high school football games to show your support for. If you’re looking for fun November activities for adults, grab a blanket and try tailgating at one of these stadiums:
Smarter insurance. By design.
Sure, companies are filling up the airwaves promising you 5%, 10%, even 15% savings on your insurance premiums in Green Bay, Appleton, Milwaukee, Madison, and all around Wisconsin. Which sounds really appealing until you find out they don’t just cut cost, they often cut coverage to the bare minimum required by law. And any price you pay for the wrong coverage is too high.
At NS, our priority is helping you find the best coverage in order to protect what matters most in life. We work proactively with top carriers to find and negotiate the best deal for your specific situation. Get in touch today to find out how much money you can save!
