Autumn Fun on a Budget
There are many seasonal activities near campus—you can pick pumpkins, scare yourself at a haunted house or just find a good place to observe the beautiful fall leaves—all within your budget. Take advantage of these attractions to make fall more enjoyable:
Green Bay—Terror on the Fox
With Halloween just around the corner, one of the best ways to get in the mood is to visit a haunted house. Green Bay's Terror on the Fox is one of the largest, highly-rated haunted attractions in the Midwest. Pay for one ticket to have access to four attractions.
Madison—Schuster's Playtime Farm
Schuster's Playtime Farm is in Deerfield, about 15 miles east of Madison. The 220-acre farm features a pick-your-own pumpkin patch, hayrides and a haunted forest. Or, you can challenge yourself in their Corn Maze during the day or for an even tougher challenge—try the maze at night.
Milwaukee—Mars Haunted House
The Mars Haunted House in Milwaukee is one of the oldest, highly-rated haunted houses in the Milwaukee area. Its convenient, downtown location and reasonable ticket prices make this a great destination for people who like a good scare.
Stevens Point—Berryland Farm
Berryland Farm is located about 20 miles northwest of Stevens Point in Auberndale. Fall is peak apple season, and Berryland Farm has 12 varieties of apples for you to pick, along with pumpkins and seasonal berries. Save money by picking your own farm-fresh apples, instead of buying them at the grocery store.
Whitewater—Hike the Ice Age Trail
Absorb fall colors while hiking the Ice Age National Scenic Trail. You can explore the trail on your own, or join in on a group hike. Guided walks—organized by the Ice Age Trail Alliance—are held weekly on Tuesdays at 4:00 p.m. until December. The group meets at the Ice Age National Scenic Trail parking lot, five miles east of Whitewater on Highway 12.
