Fall into October with These 6 Fun Activities in Boise

As the leaves start to change and fall begins, new activities arise! Due to COVID-19, some activities have been postponed, moved to a virtual platform, or have had social distancing requirements, but that won’t stop us from enjoying everything we love about fall in the Treasure Valley. Kick-off the fall 2020 season with these 6-fun fall activities.

1. Pumpkin Patch

It wouldn’t be fall without a pumpkin patch. The best part? Pumpkin Patches are outdoors, meaning it’s easy to social distance. Most pumpkin patches offer more than just picking out the perfect pumpkin too. What’s great about pumpkin patches is that they tend to have many activities — Hayrides, corn mazes, and more. Here are Totally Boise’s favorite pumpkin patch recommendations in the Treasure Valley.

  • Linder Farms - 7165 S. Linder Rd., Meridian, ID 83642
  • The Farmstead - 2500 S. Eagle Rd., Kuna, ID 83634

2. Haunted Houses

Halloween is the kickoff to the holiday season. A time to dress up—ghosts, ghouls, witches, and more tend to make appearances every Halloween. Have a scary good time at these Treasure Valley haunted houses.

  • The Haunted World - 20031 Northside Blvd., Caldwell, ID 83605
  • Requiem Haunted House - 810 Main St., Caldwell, ID 83605
  • The Farmstead - 2500 S. Eagle Rd., Kuna, ID 83634

3. Boise Greenbelt Bike Ride

We can never mention the Boise Greenbelt enough. A bike ride down the green belt is always the perfect way to spend your afternoon. As the leaves transform colors, It’s the perfect time to stop and smell the pumpkin spice. Grab a cup of coffee or hot apple cider and ride down the Greenbelt, exploring the season changes.

4. Brewery Beer Releases

If you are a craft beer lover, now is your time to try new beer. A change of season, especially from summer to fall, means new beer releases! Check with your local brewery or craft beer to find your next favorite beer.
