With school starting back up soon it is time to look forward to cooler weather, autumnal colors, pumpkin flavored everything – fall is (almost) here. With plenty of takeout options, take advantage of a pre-made picnic and enjoy your meal at these locations that embrace the upcoming fall beauty!
Riverside Park has so many great spots that are perfect for picnicking! Claim a shelter house, bring a blanket and sit among the trees, or even find a spot overlooking the waterfront, you can’t go wrong! Parking is close by all those locations so your food will still be piping hot as you enjoy!
Mt. Blanchard is a great place to visit year-round, but especially in the fall. The village is decorated beautifully with pumpkins, mums, and other fall decorations to get you in the right mood for a fall picnic. Order some food from Hurricane Pub before making your way to Hurricane Park and find a great spot to enjoy your meal – we recommend the gazebo!
What better place to enjoy a picnic in the fall than in a nature preserve? Oakwoods Nature Preserve has plenty of open spaces to enjoy your meal, picnic tables for a more refined meal, or you can hike a bit before finding a spot to relax. No matter where you pick you will be surrounded by beautiful fall color!
If Fall color isn’t necessarily for you, how about a picnic after a fall shopping trip? There are so many places in Downtown that has al fresco dining options, or you can get your food to go and sit and enjoy it in Millstream Art Plaza!
