Are you a die-hard pumpkin spice enthusiast and autumn aficionado? Well, you’ve landed in the right spot! We are fall fanatics, so we created a cozy guide for the season. From pumpkin patches to Harry Potter-themed pop-up bars, we have it all in Round Rock. Pull out your plaid flannel and prepare for all the fall feelings!
Cozy up with A cup of Coffee
Step one to enjoying a lovely fall day in Round Rock is a comfy cup of joe or a PSL, of course! We have coffee and brunch spots that brew warm cups and hot breakfasts! Take a bite into autumn with the pumpkin pancakes at Kerbey Lane, or enjoy a warm, gooey cinnamon roll from Cafe Java!
Peruse a Pumpkin Patch
There is no better adrenaline rush than spotting the PERFECT pumpkin in a vast sea of gourds! Go on a pumpkin pursuit at the Round Rock Pumpkin Festival this October. It’s an autumn oasis with activities you and the whole squad will adore, like face painting, photo ops, a bounce house, corn pit, and adorable farm animals!
Shop for fall
Wave your wand and transform your wardrobe in Round Rock! Our boutiques are stocked up with stylish autumn apparel and seasonal nick-nacks! The Merchantile on Main has even changed into a Harry Potter-themed boutique, so there is lots of wizard wear for you to choose from. Find your perfect pumpkin-picking outfit, and make Round Rock your runway!
Sip a Seasonal Brew
Our local breweries have been working their magic and brewing up seasonal sips! We have our eye on the Texas Pecan Brown Ale at Bluebonnet Beer, and their flavors are spellbinding! Enjoy a crisp day with a refreshing beer in hand this autumn.
Frolic through Fall Foliage
Round Rock’s fall foliage is a sight to see! Take in dazzling hues of gold, auburn, and burnt orange along Brushy Creek and our parks. With a sprawling 2,270 acres of parks and 20 miles of trails, you’ll fall in love with the scenery.
Round Rock or Gotham City? Marvel at nearly half a million Mexican free-tailed bats flying as they emerge from McNeil Bridge and fly over our city. This captivating sight is the idyllic autumn activity! For more information on their flight times and where to watch them, visit batsinroundrock.com
Cast a Spell at the Leaky Cauldron
“You’re a wizard, Harry!” Board the Hogwarts Express and enter the wizarding world at the Leaky Cauldron pop-up bar by Hoot & Annie! Enter a magical domain with sorcery cocktails like Expecto Patronum and Alohomora… or if you need something stronger, the Avada Kadavra! Send an Owl to your Potterheads and fly down this October!
Attend a Fall Event
Autumn is a special time of year in Round Rock; the weather plays nicely, and there is a spectacular lineup of events! We have thrilling Halloween events and a vibrant Dia De Los Muertos celebration! Another must-see event is the sophisticated Beaujolais Nights, this third Thursday in November. Or, if you’re itching for Christmas, we have an Annual Holiday Bazaar with various vendors, unique handcrafted items, and creative merchandise.
We hope you “leaf” Round Rock with high spirits and many memories! If you are looking for more activities during your autumn vacation, check out our Top Ten Adventures. Thanks for visiting, and happy fall y’all!
