The World’s Freshest Apples Are Tucked Away Inside This Hidden Texas Orchard

Fall will be here in just a few days, so let the baking begin! Nothing signifies the end of summer quite like the heartwarming smell of an apple pie fresh out of the oven. We can all agree that, even if the filling is made from scratch, grocery store fruit isn’t nearly as sweet or fresh as when you pick it straight off the tree. At Love Creek Orchards in Medina, you can sample their scrumptious apple treats that have been made with love for decades and even bring home a stash of your own pickings to bake with. Plus, you’ll be just minutes away from Lost Maples State Natural Area, which arguably has the most breathtaking fall foliage in the state. A perfect autumn road trip, if you ask us!

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing.

We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now:
