Celebrate Fall Near McHenry New Homes

Fall is a great time to get outside of your McHenry new homes and explore the wonderful community in which you live. There is so much to do in McHenry County: it really is a great place to raise your family. And, if you’re looking for a fun activity to get outside and celebrate fall, then check out our suggestions below.

Fall Golf: Just because the weather is beginning to cool, it doesn’t mean that you have to give up your favorite pastime. It’s a great time to get out and enjoy the change of the seasons and many golf courses offer reduced rates that you won’t see in the spring or summer. Plus, with five golf courses in McHenry and nine additional courses within miles of the city there is no shortage of opportunities to get out and play.

20th Annual McHenry Jaycees Haunted House: If you’re looking for something a bit frightening this fall, then stop by the McHenry Area Jaycees Haunted House at Knox Park Barn on Oct. 7-8, 13-16, 20-23 and 27-31. The scares begin at 7:30 p.m. and go until the last victim enters. The cost is $9 a person or $8 with a canned food donation.

McHenry County Conservation District’s Trail of History: Take a trip back in time on Oct. 15 and 16 to Glacial Park in Ringwood to see how McHenry County residents lived between the years 1670 and 1850. The Trail of History presented by the McHenry County Conservation District is a fun, educational event suitable for the whole family. You can shop for trinkets and eat food from the time period as well as participate in many fun activities like doll and canoe making.

Wonder Lake Ski Team Haunted Hayride: Fun for adults and children alike, the Haunted Hayride brought to you by the Wonder Lake Ski Team is an annual McHenry County treat held at Peterson Park. Hayrides start on Saturday, Oct. 15 and continue on Oct. 21-22 and 28-29 from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. There is even a special matinee ride for the younger children on Oct. 22 from 3 p.m. to 5p.m.

Shop for New Home: And last, but not least: you can always take advantage of fall’s beautiful weather to tour the area’s McHenry and Richmond new homes. However, the cooler weather isn’t the only reason to come out for a visit. We’re also offering home buyer incentives through the end of the year.
