A staple of Ohio Fall is getting the kids out to pick pumpkins. Sure it is cheaper to get them at the grocery store or Walmart, but is that creating the kinds of memories that kids will cherish all their life?
There are plenty of places to go to pick pumpkins and ride hay rides in the Akron area, but the one we go back to time and again is Kingsway Pumpkin Farm.
Located just Southeast of Akron, this farm is complete with hay rides, a corn maze, pumpkin picking, petting zoo and food vendors. Plus a ton on photo opportunities with the kids.
If you go into the corn maze, be sure to go in early enough in the day that you have time to find your way out. It is huge and easy to get lost in. Plus, in years past they hide things in the maze that are fun to search for – making the whole experience more of an adventure and less of a hike through a corn field.
Picking pumpkins in Akron in the fall is a great family activity and for many of us it is an annual tradition.
