October is finally here, which means that the fall season is in full swing and the best of the season’s activities can be enjoyed! Trips to a local pumpkin patch are one of the best things to do in fall, as it is a great day trip option that allows you to soak in the vibes of this memorable season.

If you’re planning a visit to a pumpkin patch this fall, be sure to do these three things to make the most of your day.

Go for a Hayride

A hayride is a fun experience in which you are driven around the grounds of the pumpkin patch and farm in a wagon or cart which is pulled by a tractor. Relax with your friends or family, enjoy a hot cup of cider or coffee, and breathe in the clean autumn air!

Try a Corn Maze

Corn mazes are intricate designs of labyrinths made into corn fields which can commonly be found at pumpkin patches. It can be a challenge to resolve the mystery of the maze and get out, but you’ll have lots of fun and laugh a ton while doing this classic activity.

Pick out a Pumpkin

A pumpkin patch is for pumpkins after all, and there’s no better feeling than going to the fields to pick out your own pumpkin for carving, decoration, and display at your home. It’s so much more of a rewarding experience than simply going to the store and buying one!
