The fall season in Texas is an interesting beast. The temperatures are a bit cooler but still warm. Leaves are still green for the most part. But we enjoy the same fall activities as everyone else, just maybe without the heavy coats and mittens.

Fun fall activities with Toddlers in Houston
Houston has tons of wonderful farms and pumpkin patches to visit. Dewberry Farm and Blessington Farms are popular choices, and I’m a fan of the Old Time Christmas Tree Farm (don’t be fooled by the name). Or go to the Oil Ranch Pumpkin Patch and Scarecrow Festival.
A fun thing to do each fall is visiting the Texas Renaissance Festival. Get a wagon and enjoy the shows, face painting, and more.
November also has the annual Children’s Festival. Lots of fun for all ages.
You can check out the Fort Bend County Fair.
Fun fall activities with Toddlers in Austin
Visit the Round Rock Garden Center Fall Festival.
I’ve never been to a Dia de Los Muertos festival, but how fun would that be!
Oh, and Austin does Boo at the Zoo as well!
