Fall Fun Near Cape Charles

Fall Fun Near Cape Charles

Autumn in Cape Charles brings crisp weather, beautiful sunsets, fun festivals and quintessential fall fun. 

Plan a fall getaway to Cape Charles and enjoy everything autumn has to offer!

Fall Fun

Stop by Shockley Farms for classic fall fun! See if you can escape the 20-acre corn maze and then pick a pumpkin from the pumpkin patch. Stop by the farm stand for fall decor, fresh veggies and lots of pumpkins. 

Fall's cooler weather makes it a perfect time for outdoor activities like hikingbiking and kayaking. Luckily, the Cape Charles area has plenty of opportunities for all three, plus lots of other outdoor adventures. 

Fall is also a great time for birding on Virginia's Eastern Shore. The peninsula is a hotspot for migrating birds during the spring and fall so bring your binoculars. 

Stop by the  Cape Charles Farmers Market. This weekly market runs until October so there's plenty of time to get beautiful fall veggies like broccoli, squash and greens. Keep your eyes peeled for local seafood, artisan crafts and delicious baked goods too.
