3 Fall Must Dos for City Dwellers in New England

1. Yale University

The campus buildings reminded me so much of European architecture. We went inside the Sterling Library, took a peak inside the law school building, saw the Skulls and Bones building (a Yale secret society I never knew about until this visit), strolled through the different colleges (aka. dorms), and I even took a picture of Brandford College (if you’re a Gilmore Girls fan, you’ll know what this means).

2. Pumpkin Patch 

I’ve never been to a pumpkin patch, ever. It was pretty cool to visit a farm that has one and in true farm style, we rode a hay bale ride that took us to the actual patch area. The picture below is just one tiny area of the football field size land.

3. Heirloom Apples

We went up to Vermont to visit Scott’s Farm. We went during the Heirloom Apple Day, which is the one day where they introduce their visitors to the different types of heirloom apples they grow. We attended a lecture hosted by their orchardist who presented and provided samples of different apple varieties. After the lecture, we were given the chance to “pick”and purchase heirloom apples of our choice.
