Fall is almost here, and with that comes pumpkin spice lattes, football, school photos, and the expected pilgrimage of Sacramentans to Apple Hill — our region’s hub for all things autumn.

Today, we’re planning out a whole day in Apple Hill for you, so all you’ll have to do is sit back, relax, nibble on some pie + sip on some cider.

🍩 Morning
Head to Boa Vista Orchards to grab one of its apple donuts to start off your morning — and don’t forget to snag yourself a pumpkin to paint or carve before you leave.

🥩 Afternoon
Pop on by Apple Ridge Farms to enjoy the early afternoon with a walk along the Butterfly Trail and munch on a tri-tip sandwich or chicken pot pie in a bread bowl while the kids get lost in a maze. Pro tip: Pick up a pie on your way out.

🍺 Evening
End the day at the Hangtown Cantina in Placerville to indulge in Mexican cuisine prepared with free-range meat, then head to Jack Russell Brewery to cap off the night with a flight of beer or cider (responsibly) at its family-and-dog-friendly farm brewery.
