Places To Go And Things To Do In KY During Fall

Fall is the best time of the year.

I absolutely love fall! Beautiful scenery, sweater weather, pumpkins, hayrides, and Halloween…how can it get much better?

Let’s be honest if time and money were not an issue I would have my kids at a different fall event or pumpkin patch every day in October.

You may not realize it but there are a ton of great fall activities to do in Kentucky. I have decided to compile a list of places to go and things to do in Kentucky during fall.
