Autumn Activities Near Green Lake, Wisconsin

15 Oct, 2014

Vacationing at Heidel House Resort & Spa in autumn brings you to a beautiful area where fall fun abounds. In a recent post, we highlighted Pineapple Hill, a beautiful apple orchard between Green Lake and Princeton.

In this post, we want to expand on more local attractions, drawing you in for cornfield entertainment in a giant corn maze and pumpkin picking in a well-grown patch, a haunted walk at a local school forest or wine and painting at a popular area winery.
