Beautifully colorful leaves make for an experience that sticks with you, especially if you’re out in our parks and nature areas. Harvest time also brings fresh bounty for local markets and restaurants. Here are some of our favorite fall activities.

FALL FOLIAGE TOUR 

One of the best things about fall has to be the change of colors. And there are plenty of places to snap photos. Learn about five of the best spots for fall foliage in South Bend.

THISTLEBERRY FARM

This isn’t your average pumpkin patch. Thistleberry Farm bursts with activity. Yep, you can pick out the perfect pumpkin for carving ahead of Halloween. But there’s so much more!

The crunch of leaves under your feet is a great feeling. Potato Creek State Park, St. Patrick’s County Park, Bendix Woods and Rum Village are among the most popular hiking spots in the area.

Fall isn’t called harvest time for nothing. Stroll the aisles at the South Bend Farmers Market and see for yourself.
