CAN YOU FEEL IT? The cool breeze that seems to last all day long....it's Fall in Florida! While Fall in most of the country signifies that much colder temperatures are soon to follow and that white soft fluffy stuff will soon start falling from the sky, here in Florida we relish this time of year as a relief from summer's scorching temperatures and humidity. It's also the PERFECT time for biking, hiking, camping and just about everything else!

This time of year is particularly fun because the spooky moss draped outdoor haunts are begging us to visit...and this year we start at the Haunted Trail at Oscar Scherer State Park!  

What: The Haunted Trail

Where: Oscar Scherer State Park,1843 S. Tamiami Trail, Osprey

They have 3 Trails to chooses from: A not-so-scary trail, a trick-or-treating trail (for the younger kids) and a Haunted trail that can be very intense where a guillotine chops off heads! So get ready to SCREAM!

Next we have the Crowley Museum's...‘Crawleyween’!

Although floooding closed the museum & Nature Center this summer, the great staff cleaned it up enough for Halloween!

Crawleyween will take place in the Pioneer Area and the kids will be able to collect candy and play lots of games!
