Who doesn’t love Fall activities? While we have so much to do in the park on our Fall weekends, there is also an abundance of activities you could take advantage of while in the Foxboro area. From apple picking, corn mazes, and cranberry bogs, there is something for everyone!
As most of you probably know, we are just 5 miles away from Gillette Stadium where our beloved New England Patriots play. In addition to the stadium, there is a plethora of dinning and shopping suggestions at Patriots Place, including Bass Pro Shops. Directly behind Bass Pro you will find a 32- acre cranberry bog managed by Ocean Spray. The area offers a nature trail where wildlife as well as various plant life can be found and admired. The bogs are open 7 days a week from dawn until dusk.
One of my favorite fall activities is next on the list… apple picking! The closest orchard to Normandy Farms is The Big Apple located in Wrentham MA. While the pick your own apples season has passed, the Big Apple still offers a variety of reasons to visit from hayrides, an ice cream stand and of course fresh donuts, pie and cider for sale. Fresh picked apples by the bushel are also available for purchase while supplies last!
Ward’s Berry Farm is located in Sharon the next town over from us and it could not offer any more fall fun! A wagon ride brings you out into their fields where you can select your own pumpkin and pull it right off the vine. Back at the main area, you’ll find a petting zoo, a hay pyramid and playground. Their general store offers gourmet grocery options and prepared foods to go. Stay for lunch to try a handmade sandwich or fresh smoothie!
