Going for a walk under the fall colors, enjoying the view with a drink, getting out on the lake for a panoramic view of all the red, gold, orange, and yellow trees…Delavan has plenty of ways to enjoy the colors this fall. Here are five of our favorite spots to experience fall and the beautiful leaves in Delavan.
Walk through fall colors at the arboretum
The Paul Lange and Ora Rice arboretums are nestled along the shores of Lake Comus, providing lake views of the fall colors while you’re also walking amongst the beautiful trees. The adjoining nature areas are more than 30 combined acres with nature trails and plenty of spots to sit and enjoy the views.
Enjoy some fall colors while golfing
Featuring 27 holes of public golf, Delbrook Golf Course’s original course was constructed in 1927, and golfers can still enjoy the shade and views from trees planted more than 80 years ago. Imagine the beautiful fall colors from all those trees! Grab a spot on their practice range, which allows you to hit your ball up to 275 yards while enjoying the view of the fall colors along their three courses.
Get panoramic views of fall colors on Delavan Lake
One of the best ways to enjoy fall colors on the lake is on the Lake Lawn Queen. The Queen is Delavan Lake’s two-level 76-foot cruise boat that takes passengers on a tour of Delavan Lake and its shores, with views of five Frank Lloyd Wright homes, other historical landmarks, and colorful fall vistas. The open-air top deck has lounge seating with amazing views from every angle, while the climate-controlled main level has various seating options and panoramic window views.
Experience fall colors and lake views from land
For a nice walk with lake views and plenty of fall colors to enjoy, head to Community Park in Delavan. Community Park, at the corner of Highway 50 and South Shore Drive, is 15 acres of lakefront property with a beach, playground, pavilions you can rent, and a long peninsula for shore fishing. The peninsula is also perfect for a lakefront stroll to enjoy the fall colors.
Grab a drink and enjoy the view of fall colors
What better way to enjoy the fall colors on Delavan Lake than with a group of friends and a drink! Head to Inn Between Bar & Grill right on the north shore of Delavan Lake with one of the best views on the lake. They serve lunch and dinner, plus have a full-service bar.
Head to Delavan this fall for a walk, boat tour, game of golf, or day of relaxing while enjoying the beautiful fall colors.
