As the weather turns cooler, there’s no better way to celebrate fall in Phoenix than with some fun family activities outside! Luckily there are lots of great ways to enjoy autumn in Arizona, from festivals to pumpkin patches to fall foliage. Today the Phelps LaClair staff are sharing five of our favorite fall activities in the Phoenix area. 

Pumpkin Days at Tolmachoff Farms

Nothing says fall fun more than a visit to the pumpkin patch! Tolmachoff Farms is a four-generation family farm located in Glendale. The farm holds its Pumpkin Days from October 1st through 31st, and features a huge pumpkin patch, a petting zoo, a jumping pillow, a train ride, and more. There are also three different corn mazes to choose from: a 6-acre family corn maze, a mini corn maze for little kids, and a haunted corn maze for those who dare to enter!

5: View Fall Foliage at Snowbowl

If you’re up for a day trip, take a drive up to Arizona Snowbowl in Flagstaff to see the beautiful fall foliage of the golden aspens in the area. Hike a 1.5-mile trail designed for hikers of all levels to see these magnificent trees in their full autumn glory. Or, stay in the car and enjoy a 15-mile drive up scenic Snowbowl Road, which meanders through forests full of changing leaves and ends at a 9,500-foot elevation point at Snowbowl.
