Heading out to a pumpkin patch is a fall family tradition. To get a true farm experience, you’ll need to get in the car, but it’s well worth the ride. So round up your littlest pumpkins (in rubber boots of course) and head to a pumpkin patch (or festival). While you’re there, wander through the corn maze, pick up some apples, take in a hayride, hang out with the farm animals, or blow of steam jumping on hay bales!
