Best Wheelchair Accessible Fall Activities

Fall is here! It’s time to do all sorts of fun fall activities that are also wheelchair accessible, like going to a pumpkin patch, getting lost in a corn maze, have a bonfire and gaze at the stars!

Visiting a Wheelchair Accessible Pumpkin Patch

When going to a pumpkin patch, there is usually so much more than just picking out a pumpkin to carve. Many feature activities like hay rides, entertainment, and even seasonal snacks or meals. You can spend a whole afternoon at the pumpkin patch, taking time to enjoy the location as well as the fun activities. Many pumpkin patches offer a corn maze as well, but some celebrate autumn in a big way: a larger-than-life corn maze. This autumn activity may take all day, as the larger the maze, the more time it takes to work through. Most mazes operate the same way, with checkpoints to obtain pieces of the map to help you find your way out. Getting lost in the maze is a fun activity for an individual or family.

Bonfires and Star Gazing

Building your own open fire or using a fire pit is a great way to unwind after a long day or a relaxing end to that perfect cozy day. Roasting marshmallows brings out the childhood fun of the autumn season. You can get creative with your s’mores, like adding peanut butter cups or cookies, adding a new twist to the classic treat. For those who live in a warmer climate and may not have chilly autumn weather, you can plan a stargazing trip. This is a great opportunity to enjoy the cooler nights and clear skies. Any outdoor space that’s away from the city lights can quickly become a stargazing space. You can use a telescope, but if the night is clear enough, you can see quite a lot with just your eyes. The autumn can bring sightings of Mars and Jupiter depending on your location, as well as a bounty of constellations.

Out of all the fun wheelchair activities, I would have to say that my favorite is going to a pumpkin patch. What’s your favorite fall activity?
