As children head back to school, parents drag out the cool-weather clothing, and the family calendar begins to fill with sporting events, doctor’s appointments, school plays and concerts, it can be hard to find time to spend together.
At Craguns we’ve created several fall fun weekends to help you get away, and enjoy some of your favorite fall things with your family:
Fall Bonfire on the Beach
Curling up on the beach with family is a great way to savor the last bit of summer weather while making memories at our Brainerd Resort. The nights might be cooler, but bringing your blanket and sitting by the fire on a cool fall evening to roast some marshmallows with family will prove to be nothing short of relaxing.
Fall Pumpkin Fest
Wander (or race) through a Hay Maze, jump in the corn box, colorfully decorate a pumpkin, or take a ride in our horse drawn trolley to help get your family into the spirit of the season. Our trolley rides include a guided tour of the Cragun’s grounds complete with history and fun facts!
Gazing at Fall Colors
Gorgeous reds, vibrant yellows and brilliant oranges color the trees during fall. Enjoy a view of Gull Lake from your room, or stroll down a path to take in the beautiful fall colors of Minnesota this time of year.
Seasonal bonus: Colorful leaves make great photo opportunities. Take a family photo to commemorate your vacation and make memories to last a lifetime – or better yet, get a jump on your annual Christmas photo!
Snuggling by a Fireplace
With the nighttime chill in the air, cuddle up in front of the fireplace and tell stories, recount memories, or talk about what’s going on in each other’s lives. Regardless, a fireplace is a great way to spend quality time with family.
