Four Fall Activities in Central Arkansas
The cooler temperatures and changing leaves usher in the season of fall. With this new season are opportunities to get outdoors and enjoy all that comes with it. Plan your weekend with these four fall activities in Central Arkansas.
1. Hike Pinnacle Mountain and enjoy the fall foliage.
Grab a friend or two and hike to the top of Pinnacle Mountain in Little Rock. Take in the scenic views and changing colors of the trees from 1,000 feet above sea level. With several trail options, there is sure to be a route that fits your level of difficulty. Plan your hike by visiting https://www.arkansasstateparks.com/parks/pinnacle-mountain-state-park.
2. Eat your favorite fair food at the Arkansas State Fair.
When October comes around, that means the Arkansas State Fair does too. Eat fair food favorites like corn dogs, kettle corn, lemonade and cotton candy. Or try an array of this year’s new and unique eats. While you’re there enjoy a concert, pig race and the ferris wheel! Purchase your ticket at https://www.arkansasstatefair.com/.
3. Visit a pumpkin patch.
The fall season would not be complete without a trip to the pumpkin patch. Gather a group of friends and pick your own pumpkin to take home and carve. Central Arkansas has several pumpkin patches to visit. Among our top picks are Motley’s Pumpkin Patch in Little Rock, Roseberry Farm in Benton and Bobrook Farms in Roland.
4. Try a new fall drink like Mug’s Coffee Company’s Mrs. Buttersworth cappuccino.
Take a break from your busy fall weekend and slow down at a coffee shop. We recommend stopping by Mug’s Coffee Company and trying their Mrs. Buttersworth cappuccino. Made with maple syrup and butter pecan, this cappuccino tastes like fall in a mug. Follow Mug’s on Instagram @mugscoffeecompany to view more of their fall drink specials.
