  1. Love all of these! Have been to some like Bedners but will definitely try some new ones. We also went to Boo at the Zoo a few years back. That’s a fun one for your list. great post

        1. It is generally in the 80s for most of fall. Some days will get to the 70s and we may get a couple of days of 60s. When it hits the 70s people are breaking out the boots and jackets. Haha
