Here in Culver City, there are lots of fun and festive things to do for fall. Check out some of our favorite fall activities to do near Upper Ivy.

Fall Activities To Do

November is just around the corner, and that calls for fun and cozy fall festivities!

  • Pumpkin Patch –
    • Visit the pumpkin patch this fall at Shawn’s Pumpkin Patch. There’ll be lots of straw bales, corn stalks, mountains of pumpkins, gourds, and more! It’s also a great place to take your kids for train rides, face painting, a bouncy house, and a petting zoo.
    • Right in the heart of Culver City is Mr Bones Pumpkin Patch! With rows of pumpkins, a giant hand-carved rocking horse, a petting zoo, and a mini straw maze, it’ll make you feel you’re in the country farmland in the middle of a fast-paced urban city.
  • Malibu Wine Tasting – Plan a wine tasting day at The Barn at Cielo Farms in Malibu. At The Barn you’ll experience the Woodstock and Estate wines. The enchanting landscape and panoramic sunset views are a beautiful site to see!
  • Mini Road Trip – Take a mini road trip east to Oak Tree Mountain! This 14-acre theme park features old-timey shops, a petting zoo, a reptile museum, pig races & pony rides. Oak Glen is a great place to escape from city life during Fall. Be sure to visit the Apple Butter Festival that takes place in the last week of November.
