Don't get me wrong, I'm all for a trip to the corn maze, pumpkin patch, or apple orchard. Those are all classic Fall activities that will never get old. But it's 2019, and your Fall activity options might be greater than you know!

Check out these 8 unique Fall activities to do in Illinois that you might not have heard of before according to Chicago Parent -

  1. Take the family to an Apple Maze - Love corn mazes? Get lost in an apple maze this year. It's the first apple tree maze in the nation.
