Four fall activities to do in Fort Collins

Fall is here, and Colorado is one of the best places to be during this beautiful season. Fall is the perfect time to get out and experience some of the great activites that Fort Collins has to offer. Here are some fun activities to do during the coming weeks:

The Bartels Farm and Pumpkin Patch


Bartels Farm is the ideal place to be for many favorite essential fall activities. Bartels Farm has everything from a pumpkin patch to a corn maze. With free admission, guests will have access to a a kids mini straw maze, punkin chunkin and farm animals. For $2, you can take a hayride through the farm, and for $8 for adults and $6 for kids, you can get lost in Bartel Farm’s corn maze.

Guests can also purchase their halloween decorations such as pumpkins, squash, gourds, hay bales, corn stalk bundles and winter squash at the pumpkin patch.

Bartel is open now through Halloween and is located at 3424 East Douglas Road.

Pottery Painting

When the fall weather is just a bit too cold to spend time outside, Color Me Mine will provide the perfect way to stay indoors while still being festive. Opening at Foothills mall in November, Color Me Mine is a paint it yourself pottery studio where you can paint pottery plates, decorative items and everything in between.

Painting pottery with fall or festive designs can also make perfect gifts for family members. This comes in handy with the holiday season being just around the corner. Those looking to embrace their creativity while spending quality time with friends or loved ones this fall should anticipate Color Me Mine’s opening.

Enigma Escape Room

Those looking to get in the Halloween spirit without going to a haunted house can get their share of adrenaline with Enigma Escape Room. Enigma Escape Room is an interactive activity in which a group of people are locked in a room and they are responsible for finding their way out.

Enigma is located at 151 South College Ave right underneath The Drunken Monkey. Grab a group of friends and check out this new way to experience a challenge with friends.


Horsetooth Reservoir

Arguably the best part about Fort Collins in fall is the the outdoors’ beauty that can be seen nearly everywhere you look. To see some of the best parts of the gorgeous nature that Fort Collins has to offer, look no further than Horsetooth. Fall weather in Colorado is frequently perfect for outdoor activities; it’s not too hot, but still sunny with a slight breeze. This leaves many days open for adventures at Horsetooth Reservoir.
