The Union Gap Corn Maze has been on my family’s radar for years to visit! Well, don’t miss these 5 fall activities to do while you are in town! Thanks to Union Gap we were able to get away for a 24-hour staycation to Union Gap, they provided us with locations to visit, meals, and lodging. Regardless all opinions are ours in relation to our experience.
Check with the local news for current travel advisories and any requirements or stipulations for indoor activities. Also be sure to research attractions are open and road conditions as mountain passes sometimes will close around Union Gap.
24-hour road trips have become our jam as my kids have gotten older! We are balancing sports teams, work schedules, and school so quick work road trips work out great for our family! While we have explored our side of Washington state, the middle of the state we haven’t explored very much. And to time our trip with fall festivals, I mean you couldn’t ask for what better timing!!

Madd Hatters Haunt:
This is what Kylie was the most excited about! This year for 2021 the theme is the Ringmaster’s Circus. The haunt has a vintage vibe and lots of oddities and lots of clowns – and SCARY clowns!! Plus, in the large waiting area you can hang out in or anywhere on the grounds once you get your ticket number! This opened on the 15th of October, so if you are planning out your trip be sure to check the calendar out! She became BFFs with the Joker and loved the entire experience!

Central Washington Agricultural Museum:
Now we timed this right with our trip and we were able to hit the Agri-Copia event!! There are horse-drawn wagon rides, an excavator that kids can drive, and tractor games! The girls loved to watch the mini horses and were fascinated by the huge and powerful draft horses.
We also explored the 17-acre museum! The museum is free of charge, although donations are certainly appreciated. We visited two of the exhibits – the Carriage Room and one of the cabins. We had toured a ghost town a couple of years ago and it was fun to see a cabin staged as if someone was actually living in them. The museum has a ton of old tools, farm machinery, and memorabilia to explore. A real treasure trove of the importance of agriculture in central Washington.

This is one of the oldest graveyards in Washington state! We stopped by here and the girls were fascinated to see the headstones to realize how far back in time the graveyard goes. In 2014 there was a huge community effort to clean up and preserve this piece of history! It is very well maintained and is a must stop for anyone who enjoys visiting cemeteries.

Now if you’re like me and selecting your own produce isn’t your favorite pastime, you can head to seasonal fruit stands like Fruit City and they do the work for you! Plus, you get some great deals and you’re supporting the local farmers. In a quick review of their social media, I saw that Fruit City receives numerous comments that they have the best quality fruits and vegetables – and I couldn’t agree more. They are open 7 days a week until the end of October and have a huge selection of fruits and vegetables, plus local spices, jams and they even make their own kettle corn.
