Arriving to the charming town of Winchester, it's hard to miss the fact that this town takes great pride in its apple heritage.
Situated in Virginia's northern Shenandoah Valley, this gorgeous town offers breathtaking mountain views, all the more dramatic in the fall.
This time of year is especially magical in Winchester because it's prime apple season.
Visitors of all ages are invited to stop by one of the local orchards to engage in some good ol' fashioned apple picking.
Photographed above is Marker Miller Orchards, which is located at 3035 Cedar Creek Grade, Winchester, VA 22602.
And if you're more interested in the consuming of the apples than the picking, be sure to stop by Virginia Farm Market.
The Virginia Farm Market can be found at 1881 N Frederick Pike, Winchester, VA 22603.
This delightful market offers all sorts of apple varieties in addition to mouthwatering apple cider donuts. Some would argue it's not actually fall until you've enjoyed one of these treats!
After enjoying a day of all-things apple, you can pack a picnic and embark on a hike to enjoy the local fall foliage. Photographed below is a scene from the nearby Eagle Rock hike.
So whether you stop by Winchester to learn about apple growing, to enjoy some delicious food, or simply to stroll the historic downtown, there's no denying the allure of this captivating town this time of year.
