I headed down to Iowa City this weekend to check out a popular local orchard, and I was not disappointed!

October is my favorite month of the year, and one of my favorite fall activities is going to apple orchards and cider mills. Since moving to Iowa three years ago, I have not gone to a single one. Not one! I just never really knew where to go, so I didn't even attempt it.

This weekend I finally made it to an Iowa orchard! My friends and I headed out to Iowa City to go to Wilson's Orchard on Sunday. It was a really nice day, so it was pretty busy, but we had a great time. I had no idea how big the place was, I've never been to another orchard like it. We wandered around and picked apples for a bit, but my favorite part was the apple cider slushie and donuts. I liked them so much that I even bought a Wilson's Orchard sweatshirt! Here are a few photos from our day trip:
