Many of us enjoy the crisp, fall weather, and the activities associated with fall, but sometimes it is hard to find places to go near us to enjoy pumpkin patches, corn mazes, and haunted houses. This provides some locations near the area that these activities can be done.

Though there are not many festivities in the county, there are some very close. Trax Farms is a festival open on weekends in Finleyville, Pa, which is about 40 minutes away.  They have everything from pumpkin and apple picking, to a corn maze.

Another place to visit this fall is Triple B Farms in Monongahela, Pa, about 40 minutes away, as well. This farm has pumpkin picking and carving and other activities such as hay rides and haunted barns.  This place is also a great place to take children, because they also have multiple slides.

There are also some haunted houses near to go to. Hundred Acre Manor is in Bethel Park, just under an hour away. This was also rated the best haunted house in Pittsburgh. Another one would be the Demon House in Monongahela, Pa, a 40 minute drive. Lastly, Kennywood is hosting Fright Night at this time of the year. They transform the park into a haunted house based theme park, with a majority of the original ride still open, and some of them even transformed to fit the theme better. Season pass holders also get discounts of specific days.

Though they may not be close, fall activities are just a drive away. Be quick, though, most of these attractions will end after October!
