Where To Find Fall Family Fun in Fayetteville, NC


Finding Fall Family Fun in Fayetteville has been on the top of my To Do List for a bit now. Summer was quickly leaving us behind and I knew I wanted options for the cooler days and shorter nights ahead. Now that I’ve found it I want to share it with you!

Spending time together as a family is something I try to do at least once a week. Our weeks are full of school, work, after school activities and so much more. Weekends are the days we set aside to simply be together as a family. Most weekends we dedicate one day for doing nothing and one day to a new adventure. Fall Family Fun here in Fayetteville was actually a lot easier to find than I thought. It’s amazing some of the treasures your own town can hold when you take the time to look.

Family Fun Revisited

These first few finds are places I’ve had the blessing to visit before whether as a Blogger or with my family. They were a blast the first time around and I already know they are places I can’t wait to revisit this year.

The 1897 Poe House

Thanks to FayTour15 – a tour sponsored by the Fayetteville Area Convention & Visitor’s Bureau I had the chance to discover a few places that I know I’ll be revisiting this season.
#MYFayetteville | One Day - Four Ways #FayTour15 | TheMrsTee.com
My first experience at The 1897 Poe House during FayTour15 was so memorable. I learned so much about the history, superstitions and mysteries surrounding this grand Victorian style home. The owner, E.A. Poe designed the home with many imperfections and flaws that intertwined with his faith’s belief there could be no perfection made other than by God. This along with the many stories and myths about the home absolutely fascinated me. So as I searched for local Fall Events and saw Halloween Themed tours as well as a Trick Or Treat Night at the Poe House I knew they are both something I want to experience with my family.

 

Hallowe’en Reveals Night Tours In The Poe House – Details Here
Wednesday, October 16th at 6pm – Friday, October 28th at 6pm
“If you have attended Hallowe’en Revels in the past, this year’s event will be very different. In addition to once again working with actors from the Gilbert Theatre, we are mixing things up to coincide with the museum’s current special exhibit, Parlor to Parlor: Funeral Traditions of the Cape Fear 1850-1950, which runs through December 31. The house will be dressed in mourning for the month of October, so the night tours this year will include a realistic coffin set up as part of a funeral scene in the parlor. Visitors will be guided through a timeline of scenes from the life of Dixie Poe Sutton, culminating in her untimely death from childbirth complications in 1913.” —Museum of the Cape Fear

Judging begins at 2:00 pm with prizes awarded immediately after.” —Museum of the Cape Fear

Zip Quest

Another Adventure I had a chance to have due to my part in the FayTour15 was Zip Quest. Now let me tell you zip lining is NOT something I would have ever done on my own. I don’t necessarily love heights and I’m wasn’t that carefree – then. I climbed down that last zip line tower with such a feeling of accomplishment and pride. I couldn’t wait to tell my son and husband. I’m not sure I would share this with my younger kiddies but this is definitely something I can’t wait to experience along with my older kids and my husband.

Yup. That’s me up there zipping my way through the trees – in the day time. So yeah, that’s the fun part about ZipQuest in the Fall. They are now offering something called NightQuest where you get the same adrenaline rush of zip lining with the added adventure of doing it at night. I know it may take a bit of convincing but I know this would be the perfect fun for us!

 

ZipQuest NightQuest – Details Here
“Your tour will begin at dusk with an orientation to familiarize you with the equipment and techniques you will need for your zipline tour. Then helmet lights are turned on and your adventure begins Gliding through the forest on your 2+ hour zipline adventure, your senses will be enhanced as day turns to night! In between zips, you will you will ascend floating spiral stairways to tree-house platforms supported by hearty centuries-old trees. Mid-tour you will cross a suspension bridge overlooking the Sandhills’ only waterfall, Carver’s Falls, illuminated by the light of the moon. Your zipline tour will culminate with a long zip parallel to the falls.  You won’t want to miss this outdoor adventure of a lifetime!” —ZipQuest

Hobbs Farm

A few years ago I went on a Field Trip with my daughter as a chaperone to a local pumpkin farm. It was so much fun we both knew we wanted to find one  bit closer to go to with our whole family. The address may not be Fayetteville but it’s a short drive and definitely worth the extra effort. My search lead us to Hubbs Corn Maze.

Hobbs Corn Maze now known as Hubb’s Farm is nothing short of amazing! Food, Rides, Pumpkins and enough fun to last an entire day. The maze was so much fun! From finding all the checkpoints to making sure we made the right turns – it was definitely an adventure we all took part in.  The Fall season has already started and I can’t wait to get our tickets to go pick out the perfect pumpkins to bring Fall into and around our home.
