Our annual Apple Tasting Tour is packed with new options for visiting and celebrating the apple! NEW Virtual experiences to include an on-line passport with trivia and NEW features like curbside pickup at some stops. Ten locations, each unique, as is the taste and texture of apples. Plus we added 5 parks and the restaurant sponsors this year. With so many places and options, U Pick your stops, U Pick the Way!

Wayne County Tourism partners with 10 local businesses to host the tour. The Apple Tasting Tour is a self-driven tour, with fall and apple activities happening throughout the month of October. Visitors have the entire month to experience apple harvest at farm markets, apple orchards, wineries, and cideries. Every stop visited earns a badge on the tour app that can be emailed to the Tourism Office for a chance to win a prize at the end of the month. Access the tour app at www.appletastingtour.com.
