Visit Any of the Historic Plantations Down Route 5
A quick drive east down Route 5 winding past Rocketts Landing will take you directly to many historic plantations. Featuring palatial homes, beautifully landscaped grounds and quintessential aspects of Southern and Colonial lives, visiting these plantations located along the James River is a great fall outing.

Pick Up a Game of Frisbee Golf at Gillies Creek Park
As our backdoor neighbor located on
Williamsburg Road, Gillies Creek Park features 40 acres of recreation tucked in
the woods at Fulton Bottom. The park is uniquely home to the city’s only BMX
track while also serving as a popular sunny-day destination for its 18-hole
disc-golf course and horseshoe pits.
In fact, even if you don’t have a team
with you, with the park’s disc golf popularity, just a visit to the park can easily
jumpstart a game — while you meet new friends! If throwing Frisbees into metal
targets (basket) is your thing, then this park is the perfect fall outing for
The mighty James River keeps you busy, no matter the season!
And of course, we’d be remiss to not mention getting out on the James River! Between fishing, boating, kayaking, canoeing, paddleboarding and rowing, we’ve yet to experience a season where enjoying river activities doesn’t complete a perfect day. So, with the temperate weather and fall leaves starting to change, now’s the perfect time to enjoy the season with these fall activities near Rocketts Landing.
