We always enjoy going to the fall festivals- The October Fest in Maggie Valley is great- there is good food, good music, a petting zoo for the kiddos- it is always fun.
One of our must-dos in October is go to the pumpkin patch. There are so many of them but somehow we always end up going to the Hickory Nut Gap farm in Asheville. They have hay rides, horse rides, corn maze and a pumpkin patch and we always have SO much fun. It is about an hour away from the cabin and it is an amazing day trip.
I also checked Catalloochee Ski website today and they are geraing up for the season- November 1st is the opening day...
So many things to do, so little vacation time!!! But when we go up there it is ALWAYS fun!!!
