Explore the Tri-Valley during fall and you’ll be met with farm fresh apple tasting, charming farmers’ markets, and a corn maze you may or may not find your way out of. If fall is your favorite season, check out our collection of the best of the Tri-Valley’s autumnal activities below:
Open every year for the entire month of October, the massive corn maze at G&M Frams has been featured on the David Letterman show twice and is a Tri-Valley staple every fall. Take a shot at finding your way through six acres of corn maze. If you manage to find your way out, check out their cow train, pony rides, straw bale maze, corn box, pedal carts, barnyard blasters or jumping pillows.
It’s not officially fall until you’ve tasted fresh-picked apples. Head to Alden Lane Nursery to try a variety of farm fresh apples grown locally at Dave Hale’s farm in Sebastopol.
The Tri-Valley Beer Trail is home to breweries and taprooms with a wide collection of locally brewed ciders and craft beers on tap. Looking for something seasonal and delicious? Try Danville Brewing Company’s award-winning Oatmeal Raisin spiced beer at the Downtown Danville taproom.
There’s something so charming about a downtown farmers’ market during the fall. Meet local farmers, artists, makers, and more at one of the year-round farmers’ markets in Danville, Pleasanton and Livermore.
Wine tasting in the Livermore Valley Wine Country is a year-round activity, but visiting during harvest season while the vineyards start to take on their autumnal colors is an especially scenic time to plan a trip to our wine region.
The Tri-Valley Caffeine Trail is a fun, family-friendly activity available to visitors throughout the year, but the fall season is when our coffeeshops, teahouses and cafés really start to shine. Visit 5 stops on the Tri-Valley Caffeine Trail to win a souvenir Tri-Valley mug.
