Everyone has their own favorite thing about the fall, whether it’s the leaves changing color, football season kicking off, apple picking, or corn mazes. Here in Richmond Hill, we get to experiences every bit of the seasonal fun and then some. There are plenty events taking place around town, but here are some extra fun family activity ideas that everyone can enjoy.
- Flag football. Football season is just around the corner, so there is no better time to get into the football spirit. Invite some neighbors over to come play a casual after-school pick-up game or host a neighborhood game planned in advance with snacks and a scoreboard.
- Kayaking. Go kayaking in the Ogeechee River and enjoy the beautiful scenery and abundant wildlife. Bring the whole family; just don’t forget the life vests! Kayaking is a great activity for any weekend afternoon. A great kayak/canoe rental place near Richmond Hill can be found here.
- Go Fishing. Bring the kids to the Ogeechee River, a local pond, or a nearby tidal creek and see what you can catch! Go straight to the water if you already have gear, if not there are plenty of charters and fishing stores to help you prepare for this fun family outing. Fishing with your family is a great quiet activity for everyone during the weekend or even weekday evenings. A great local charter you can use to enhance your fishing experience can be found here.
- Visit the Park. Pack a lunch for the whole family and go enjoy the outdoors. The local Richmond Hill parks have so much history and some even have museums on site ensuring plenty of entertaining options for everyone. Visit the Richmond Hill Museum and the Fort McAllister National Park to learn more about the town’s role in the Civil War and much more. There are events in or around Richmond Hill almost every week, so it might be helpful to check the WaterWays Township.com Special Events calendar and see what is happening in town!
