5 Fall Favorites To Visit in Maryland

Well, summer, it's been real. Summer in Maryland is one of the most fun seasons -- but there's something really special about fall here! Though there's no guarantee about anything weather-wise here in the Old Line state, we can look forward to dropping temperatures, golden and ruby leaves, and special places to visit. Like what, you ask? Like these!

Rodger's Farm, Greenspring Valley

The classics are all here -- corn mazes (with amazing, Maryland-themed shapes!), hayrides, pumpkin picking and cider. Seriously, this is like fall encapsulated in a single experience! Whether you want a cute place to take your date this autumn or you're on babysitting duty and want to have as much fun as the kids, this is the place to take them.

Legends of the Fog, Aberdeen

The well-known haunted house/maze/hayride is back again for the 2017 season beginning September 23rd! Bring all your friends and see who's bravest when it comes to the Haunted Hayride, the Farewell Hotel, the Sinister Circus or the Cornstalkers Maze! For $30, you can do all four of these -- not bad for a night of frights! Get creeped out all the way until the first weekend of November.

Apple Harvest Festival at Gaver Farm, Mt. Airy

Everybody knows one of the best things about fall is the opportunity to pick fresh apples, perfect for turning into pies and turnovers -- or just for taking a nice big crunchy bite out of as soon as you pick it. On September 23rd and 24th, you can come pick your own apples at Gaver Farm! You can also pick pumpkins, ride the hayride or browse the farm market. But seriously, think of all those apple pies you can make...

Fall Harvest at Buppert's, Marriottsville

This farm is in operation from April to November, but the fall is a great time to visit if you haven't already gone -- not only can you partake in the usual fare of pumpkin picking and hayrides, you can go shopping for a wide variety of cool harvest items, like mums, asters, gourds, and fresh pressed cider. You can even have parties and family reunions here! Not a bad way to spend a gorgeous autumn day.

Laurel's House of Horror, Laurel

You're not going to run out of chills or thrills at this creepy destination! Beginning September 22nd, you can take part in a haunted house experience as well as escape rooms that are open all year round. The fact that it's built on an abandoned movie theater makes it all the more eerie -- take your whole group of friends along, and see who makes it out alive!
