  • Apple Orchard Adventures

    Begin the day at Afton Apple Orchard and test your luck in their 15 acre corn maze!  Enjoy a hayride out to their enormous orchard to pick your own apples.  Let the kids play on Straw Mountain or visit animals in the petting zoo.  One apple orchard not enough?  Hop right across the street to Whistling Well Farm for more apple and pumpkin picking fun!

    Unwind after a packed day outside with a delicious lemon basil margarita at Me & Julio or dive into american comfort food at The Busted Nut on 2nd Street.

    Saturday morning enjoy breakfast at El Mexican then head over to Carpenter Nature Center for hiking and a chance to see a raptor release.  If the group decides to split up, send half over to Extreme Sandbox for a once in a life adult sandbox experience OR hit one of the 8 golf courses near Hastings for an end of the year round of golf.  So much to do so little time!
