Ideas to See the Sights This Fall in KC

Fall is in the air and the weather has been beautiful. Being outdoors continues to be one of the safest ways to enjoy the seasons in 2020, and this week I’m sharing a few great ways you can make the most out of Autumn:

Leaf Watching

We are fully into leaf-changing season, and there are so many beautiful places to see the trees in transition. You can look for a few options here, or even visit a favorite park. Speaking from experience, some of the best family moments have been spontaneous and not over overly planned. If you’d rather avoid some of the most popular spots, just keep it simple and enjoy a nearby park! You can even pack a picnic or bring the bikes along to extend your visit.

Pumpkin Patches

There are many pumpkin patch options around town, but because fall is understandably a favorite season in the Midwest, I’ve heard they’ve been busy. If you want to consider a visit, I recommend using the power of social media to ask around about crowds so you can plan things out. This will give you a chance to mask up and visit a destination that best meets your needs.

Halloween Displays

If it’s chilly out, hop in the car to go see some spectacular Halloween home displays around town. Much like the holidays, it can be very enjoyable to grab your favorite seasonal drink, pile into the car and drive around to look at home decorations and displays. Some are just as elaborate as the holidays! One of our employees even has a display at 12241 South Rene St., Olathe KS, 66062.

Like every season before it, the fall will look a bit different this year. But Mother Nature always delivers, and with these tips, you’ll be enjoying fall safely.
