Now that “spooky” season is among us, pumpkin patches are beginning to emerge, haunted houses are being put together, and the smell of pumpkin spice fills the air. As college students, it can be difficult to afford all of the activities that come about during fall, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t enjoy this fall season. Check out some of these fun and inexpensive activities to do during the next couple of months!

Visit a Pumpkin Patch
There are so many pumpkin patches throughout this time of year that its so hard to keep track! Visiting a pumpkin patch is a great excuse to yet again, take pictures! But also, to pick out some pumpkins to carve out later in the night. Here are a couple of my favorite pumpkin patches that I will be visiting soon.
Kuwahara’s Pumpkin Patch
This was my favorite pumpkin patch that I went to last year! They had different themes throughout the field and the coolest looking pumpkins!
Green Acres Family Dairy, Pumpkin Patch & Corn Maze
I was recently here during their Sunflower festival,
and they were getting ready for the fall season!
They have fun activities for kids, animals, and a corn maze!
