With Halloween soon upon us and the fall season flying by, families are doing their best not to overschedule their fun times together, but still take advantage of some great Hill Country events. Between taking hayrides, going trick-or-treating, and exploring corn mazes, pumpkin patches, and apple orchards, there seems to be less time to simply slow down and enjoy everything autumn brings. But there’s no excuse for missing out on what matters to you. Coordinating a fall tour through the Texas Hill Country to see all things fall-related with your family and friends is one of the best ways to enjoy it all!

Stay at some great hotels or bed and breakfasts, and experience the great fall flavor that Texas is known for. A trip on which you don’t have to drive is the perfect way to capture everyone’s interests and fall pastimes in one fell swoop, so you can actually get some R&R out of the deal. Texas Charter Bus Company has you covered!

Find the perfect bus rental for your trip from Boerne to Hondo for the South Texas Maize Experience, a 7-acre corn maze where kids can be kids (and maybe adults can too!). The experience features not only their award-winning maze but also hayrides, jumping pillows, trains for the kids to tour the property, and the amazing MatterCorn Slide Mountain. They also boast a number of special events

From there, a drive to Medina is in order for a visit to Love Creek Orchards. Featuring a variety of fresh seasonal fruit—and free admission—the orchard offers old-fashioned family fun and delicious apples and baked goods! While you’re there, you might want to check out the Great Hill Country Pumpkin Patch. Love Creek Orchards may be known for its apples, but it’s also famed for its October-long, Halloween-focused event, including a cider mill, hayrides and a hay bale maze, a petting zoo, and pumpkins galore!

For adults only, the spooky part of your tour can commence in Bandera, at Horror in the Hills. This Halloween tour ranked number four out of ten of the scariest Halloween experiences in Texas! This terrifying hayride is based on “secret government testing” that took place decades ago. It also includes The Barn of Misery, which contains “experiments” that went tragically awry and some of the scientists who were said to have gone mad in the process. It’s a must-see on any fall tour of the Hill Country.
