Pumpkins and Corn Mazes and Hayrides, OH MY!

Pumpkins and Apples It’s that time of year again.  You’ve been watching the leaves gradually trade their summertime hues of green for vibrant coats of red, orange, and yellow; that much-awaited pumpkin spice latte has somehow snuck into your cup holder one too many times already; and your Facebook newsfeed is a constant photo stream of your friends with a corn stalk in one hand and a pumpkin in the other. Yes, there is no denying that fall has once again arrived.

Of course, no autumn spent in Washington could be complete without a hand-picked pumpkin or two and an adventure getting lost in a corn maze. We’ve made your planning easy this year and assembled a list of our favorite places near Bellevue to catch a hint of “fall spirit”.  From pumpkin patches and hayrides to duck races and slingshots, we have you covered.
