Sure, we say a tearful goodbye to our favorite summer activities for kids when September rolls around, but we also extend an excited "hello!" to our kids' back-to-school time! Fall is wonderful: There are sweaters to wear, pencils and notebooks to buy, and plenty of amazing fall activities for kids to enjoy as well.

Before school starts, plan a last minute get-together with friends over these Labor Day activities or Labor Day weekend getaways, and make sure to get in on the season's most photographed activity: apple-picking near NYC!
Get in on some great apple picking near NYC! Cooler temperatures mean sweater weather, hot cups of tea, back-to-school season and—of course—apple season! We’re so lucky to live within reach of some of the area’s best apple orchards in NY, so why not rent a Zipcar or head out on Metro North/LIRR to get in on some autumnal fun?
