Fort Atkinson offers a number of wonderful fall experiences. First, check out Poyer’s Farm Market, a year-round market that offers fall must-haves like homemade pies (over 354,000 pies made since 1988), caramel apples, pumpkins, gourds, jams and jellies, honey, cheese and more.
Your list should also include The Fireside Theatre. One of the Midwest’s favorite entertainment destinations, the dinner theatre offers a taste of Broadway entertainment.
Animal lovers will get a kick out of Busy Barns Adventure Farm, featuring a pumpkin patch; sunflower fields (a totally Instagrammable spot); hayrides; fresh apple cider donuts; a corn maze; kid’s activities; and the chance to pet baby farm animals like calves, kittens, goats, bunnies and more.
And for the thrill-seeking adventurers, the best way to see the changing colors of the trees is with a skydiving jump at the Wisconsin Skydiving Center. Beginners can tandem jump with an instructor, and there’s also the option to capture a jump with a personalized video to remember the experience forever.
