Best Pumpkin Patch

Once autumn hits, what's better than meandering through a field of pumpkins while sipping on a hot cup of coffee or apple cider? And at Emery Farm, you'll be greeted by rows upon rows of those orange orbs.

And if you're looking for a pick-me-up while choosing your favorite gourd, head to their market for a few of their award-winning cider donuts!

Whether you want to traverse through the Quarter Mile Nightmare Walk, see the killer sights at the Graveyard of the Damned, wallow in the darkness of the Maze from Hell, or reanimate your fears at the 3D Nuclear Accident House, you'll find your fair share of frights at this full-throttle hell house.

For the main attraction, head to the Area 52 facility filled with bone-crunching zombies who're just dying to spook you silly.
