No one ever is bored at this farm and orchards, with plenty of fun activities for the whole family
If you have heard “there’s nothing to do” one time too many, pack everyone in the car and head straight to Bishop’s Orchards, where no one has ever uttered that phrase. Pick-your-own season starts in June with strawberries and goes all the way to Halloween in the pumpkin patch. The kids will love picking their own blueberries and apples (a tractor-trailer will take you to the apple orchards). In the fall, there are activities from scarecrow-making and outdoor movie nights to the hay maze. Holiday season means cookie-decorating, visiting Santa and the holiday Apple Train. Check the calendar for kids’ book club meetings and other special events. And did we mention the Creamery with flavors from Sea Salt Caramel to Fly Fishing Fudge and Moose Tracks?
An adventure for everyone in the family at this fun, challenging ropes course
An adventure awaits family members of all ages at the It Adventure Ropes Course inside Jordan’s Furniture. The world’s largest indoor ropes course includes more than 100 exciting challenges, from crisscross angled rope ladders and zig-zag swinging beams to cargo nets and tricky bridges. And, zip rails that sit at heights up to 56 feet let you fly over a liquid fireworks water show from one end of the course to the other. A full-body harness and sling line keeps you connected the entire time. For children under 48 inches tall, there’s the fun Little It course, with platforms less than three feet above the ground and adult chaperones nearby to lend assistance if needed.
