It's that time of year again, and we're looking forward to hitting up some of our favorite Austin pumpkin patches and fall festivals. Check out our list of eight awesome spots that your family is sure to love!
We don’t have too many options, but if you’d like to pick your own fruit, check out @sweetberryfarm 🍓 (open now for picking but closed every Wednesday) or @jenschkeorchards 🍓🍑 (opens next week, check their website or Facebook page for updates).
@sweeteatsfruitfarm may be coming out with some fruit soon as well.

📍 Commons Ford Ranch Metropolitan Park ☀️ Looks like it’ll be great hiking weather this weekend! 😎 🌱 Stay on the trail- lots of poison ivy here. I recommend getting the Seek app and take pics of the plants you’re not sure of! 📷 🥾 We did the 2 mile waterfall loop trail. Another great app for this hike is @alltrails because this hike can be tricky to figure out!

😎 Teens in Austin: Rage Room We went to @thebreakingpoint_atx yesterday to check out their rage room. Anyone 13 and up can go smash things for 30 minutes ($40). Would make a fun teen birthday party or even a fun Mom’s Night Out (while you’re PMSing 😆) 🎨 They also have a splatter paint room, 🪓 axe throwing, and 🔐 and escape room.
