Talk Around Town: Favorite Fall Activities

Compiled by Maia Franco

“I love going to the beach in the off season! It’s still warm enough to swim and tan but much more calm and serene.” -Jess Fidel, Freehold resident

“Every fall, my family goes apple and pumpkin picking at Eastmont Orchards. Each year, they make the experience even better than the last, and it’s something I look forward to each year. I also love going for walks in both Holmdel Park and Thompson Park to see the leaves in all of the different colors.” -Matt Mrotzek, Lincroft resident

“I love to see the leaves change color around the Swimming River Reservoir and Thompson Park trails. The vibrant colors make me want to stop my car in the middle of the Phalanx Road Bridge just to take in the views!” -Liam Honan, Middletown resident

“I like the colder weather, pumpkin picking at Casola Farms and seeing all of the houses in my neighborhood decorated for Halloween.” -Miles Enstrom, Rumson resident

“Pumpkin-flavored everything! I count the days leading up to the return of the Dunkin’ Donuts pumpkin spice muffin.” -Sue Connors, Atlantic Highlands resident
