Fall has quickly become a favorite time of year with the leaves changing, crisp cool air, many sports and activities and more. If you haven’t experienced these five fall activities in the Moberly Area then we recommend you do them asap.
1. Watch the leaves fall at Rothwell Park.
Moberly’s Rothwell Park is one of greatest hidden gems in the State of Missouri. This almost 500 acre park has so many locations to sit by the water and watch the leaves fall, fish, hike, bike, camp and more. It is a great time to get outdoors and enjoy nature.
2. Visit Shepherd Farms Pecan Orchard
Open seasonally from October to December, Shepherd Farms Pecan Orchard in Clifton Hill has fresh pecans, jams, jellies, honey and more. Visit to see the pecans being shelled and purchase some delicious goodies straight from the farm!
3. Purchase some mums at the Amish Community
A favorite activity of visitors and residents alike is going out to the Clark, Missouri Amish Community. Located in the country roads of Clark this community has a weekly produce auction where mums and other veggies are plentiful. Additionally, many homes sell baked goods, quilts, spices and more. It is nice to get away and experience a simpler time in life. Get a free map by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
