Maxwell's Pumpkin Farm Fall Days & Giant Maze

Maxwell's is arguably the one thing that every family winds up experiencing this time of year. Ticket prices range depending on the level of "pass" you want. Once inside there is everything from giant slides to apple cannons for the kids to have fun on.

And of course...pumpkins. There's also a wide variety of items available to purchase and take home. Definitely an easy trip to make a whole day out of. They are open for the season.
