Apple Hill Magic

Every fall season, Apple Hill turns into something magical for everyone. The growers in the hill offer their harvest, and a ‘one of a kind’ opportunity to disconnect yourself from everything electronic for even a day.

Get a chance to wander from one orchard to another, purchase a basket of apples, drink up some cider, and get a bite of their scrumptious donuts and delectable pies. It’s the ‘vibe’ and the simplicity of everything is exactly what makes Apple Hill so appealing to travelers and tourists that visit the area. They said the entire place smells like grandma is baking something special for the holidays!


Apple Hill is not solely popular for their apples and apple-based desserts, the place offers more! They provide a cozy place for picnic, some live music, and pumpkin patches. You will also feel the urge to stop at one of the u-pick apple orchards for some fun. You will surely delight in the fact that you will find not only orchards but also craft booths, breweries, wineries, and spas.  The winding roads and scenic beauty is heart-stopping that makes it a popular destination for every member of the family since its inception in 1964.

Apple Hill During Fall

Fall is one of the most perfect times of the year to go and check out Apple Hill. It is when the air is filled with the amazing scent of apple pies and where everyone seems busy hording apples into their cars.  During fall, all roads seem to lead to Apple Hill where roads are very slow to a crawl on a weekend and where business can be truly hectic. But, do not worry as they will offer free shuttle buses to help ease your travel burdens.  At any rate, bring along some small cooler or tote bag to bring home those fresh apples, cider, frozen pies, and other apple-based desserts.
