A Lackawanna County Autumn is Spectacular

Lackawanna County’s excitement peaks in the fall just as its leaves begin to create a breathtaking landscape of crimson, plum, and apricot that catches residents as well as visitors in its spell year after year. Whether viewed on a fall foliage train excursion or by walking through the woods, the spectacle is extraordinary. But visitors quickly see that there is so much more to do on a fall vacation in Northeast Pennsylvania than view beautiful scenery!

Local farmers create complex corn mazes to delight visitors. After finding your way through a maze, you can sample some freshly pressed apple cider and munch on a pumpkin doughnut. Visitors love the area’s many pick-your-own pumpkin patches. Load into a wagon and bounce happily into a field filled with thousands of orange pumpkins, just waiting to find their forever homes! Farmers who lovingly planted and nurtured the crop are only too happy to help you make the perfect choice.

Fall weekends host ethnic festivals celebrating immigrant cultures. These festivals feature food, dance, art, and crafts from the old countries, and no passport is needed. If you’re lucky, an outdoor bonfire will illuminate the night and cap your evening with a glow.
