With school back in session and sports in full swing, time seems to slip away from everyone. While the summer is great for relaxing, spending time at the beach and taking prime advantage of every outdoor patio within a 20 mile radius of your house (or down the shore…thank you Tiki Bar) there are still great ways to spend the shortened fall days with the kids and post-summer dates.
Terhune Orchards is great during any time of the year, but during the fall they offer a Pick-Your-Own fruit calendar bountiful of great snacks! Fall raspberries start out the season, followed by 18 different varieties of apples. As an avid apple fanatic, I can only imagine how many tasty desserts I could make!
If you fare better inside during the crisp fall days, McCarter Theatre is the place for you! Their fall season kicks off with the play “Ten Cents a Dance” which will run through September and October. Get tickets online or at the theater door.
The Princeton Public Library also offers indoor activities for children and adults alike. Live readings in different languages and specific interests can keep all family members entertained. There are also educational seminars and movie viewings!
The Princeton University Art Museum is probably my favorite place in Princeton to visit during the colder part of the fall; which is the entire season. The Art Museum not only has great paintings and sculptures, but also has a continuous display of classic exhibitions that will get anyone excited about artwork.
While I would love to say meet me every weekend at Terhune Orchards during apple picking season (I will be the girl with the latte), I am much more excited to offer you a variety of activities that all ages will enjoy. Throw on those old jeans and your favorite sweatshirt and go outside and enjoy this wonderful month of September; as it will soon be forgotten.
