October is full of falling leaves and falling in love. Spend time with your loved ones in Oshkosh while enjoying the changing colors of fall! We have a full list of things to do and places to see around Oshkosh! Check it out!

Start with Spooky Drinks at Ground Round

Ground Round at Rivers Edge has a limited time menu to spook up the Halloween fear. Try a Maple Cider Old Fashioned, Hocus Pocus Fizz, Witches Brew, Carmel Apple-tini, or Spiked Cinnamon Apple Cider! They look as freaky good as they taste! Cheers to the start of a perfect fall date night in Oshkosh.

Speak to Sprits at Haunted Happenings at The Grand

136 years of history and spirits fill the walls of The Grand. Take a date and experience the stories of a ditzy research professor; the woman-in-the-balcony, the despondent Shakespearian actor, the mysterious fortune teller, plus a surprise or two! If you are brave enough, take a chance speaking to the little boy in the basement—he may or may not choose to speak to you, but he loves the tours! Sip the fear away with Halloween themed drinks before or after your tour! Make your reservation HERE!

Go Bowling on the LANES at The Howard

Grab your date and bowl at the seasonally open bowling lanes at The Howard. The lanes are for guests 21 years+ in age with a unique bar to sip and bowl. Bowl in an upscale environment on Thursdays from 5pm-11pm and Fridays 5pm-11pm. Make a reservation for you and your date and soak up the Halloween spirit!
