5 Autumn Adventures in Milly

Ahhh Autumn... the one time of year when Milledgeville isn't totally boring and all green. The very first day of Fall is September 23rd! Now that's something to celebrate! Some of these Autumn festivities and activities are not technically in Milledgeville, but they're close enough to snag up your friends, jump in the car, turn on some tunes, and go on a speedy roadtrip to an Autumn adventure near you!  (Most of these places open October 1st, but it's never too early to start planning!)
