FALL IN DOWNTOWN APPLETON

There’s an inviting feeling in Downtown Appleton in autumn. Whether you want to cozy into a coffee shop or breathe in the crisp, fall air, Downtown is one great place to spend the season.

 

MAKE YOUR HOME FEEL WARM WITH FALL DÉCOR 

Give your home a cozy, warm feel with some new fall décor. Many of the retailers Downtown have beautiful fall and Halloween décor for sale. Cedar Harbor, The Vintage Garden and Blue Moon Emporium are just a few of the shops who carry unique pieces for your home.  

ZHUZH UP YOUR FALL LOOK 

Freshen up your look for fall in Downtown Appleton. Try a new hair color or style with one of the talented Downtown stylists at Kodere Salon, Shear Chaos or Bold Salon. If you don’t want to commit to a hairstyle change, a new pair of jeans from Lillians or a comfy shacket from Sugar Rushlow Boutique are great additions to your fall wardrobe.  

GRAB A TREAT, WITHOUT A TRICK 

Sweet treats seem to be endless in Downtown Appleton. Grab a pastry at Voyageurs Bakehouse or a scone at All Tied Up. Try some edible cookie dough at Doughlicious or create your own cookie and ice cream sandwich at Legendairy Cookies ‘n Creamery. You can also find great to-go items and gifts at Crazy Sweet. 

SIP THE FLAVORS OF FALL 

Whether fall puts you in the mood for a cold craft beer or a hot apple cider, you can find your beverage of choice in Downtown Appleton. Between Stone Arch Brewpub, Appleton Beer Factory and McFleshman’s Brewing Company they have hundreds of different beers. Coffee shops like Seth’s Coffee, Lawlss, ACOCA Coffee and Brewed Awakenings will keep you feeling warm with pumpkin spice lattes, chai, and many other specialty drinks. 

ENJOY THE CRISP OUTDOORS 

Downtown Appleton is very fortunate to have some beautiful outdoor spaces that can be enjoyed during most of the year. Jones Park and City Park have playgrounds that feature a rubberized surface to make playing easier, even when the ground is cold or muddy. For hikers, we also have the Fox Trot Trail, which weaves throughout the Downtown and along the river, featuring 16 historical markers.
