This post is just for my peeps in the Raleigh-Durham area. If you aren’t in the area, stay tuned for another post soon…..or come for a visit. NC is beautiful in the fall!
Every year I search for the best pumpkin patches to visit in the Raleigh-Durham area and I always feel like I am piecing together snippets from here and there, never to find one good consolidated list. These are mainly farms with pumpkin patches and corn mazes, but a few haunted houses and haunted corn mazes too.
Jim didn’t want me to post our favorite one because he doesn’t want more people to know about it. I told him I just won’t say which one it is. He doesn’t like crowds, can you tell?
If I missed anything, please let me know and I can add to this list.
Have a fun fall and a wonderful Halloween!
