From the dramatic leaf colors, to the perfectly crisp air, North Carolina is the place to be for the fall! And, in the center of it all, Greensboro has plenty of gardens, parks, fields, pumpkin patches, and corn mazes to make your fall season the best one yet!

Looking for a local family farm to find your perfect pumpkin? Visit J. Razz & Tazz Farm this October! They offer a challenging corn maze (day and night), Haunted Forest hay wagon rides, playgrounds, a corn pit (a ball pit filled with corn kernels), and a large pumpkin patch! Visit their website for more information: http://www.jrazz.com/.

Ready to stroll through gardens filled with orange, yellow, and red leaves? Visit any of Greensboro’s beautiful gardens and parks! In the Greensboro Arboretum, you can see 10 different labeled plant collections, special garden displays, and distinctive features within a 17 acre portion of Lindley Park!

Visit the Bog Garden to walk through the garden on a stunning half-mile, elevated wooden walkway. Along the way, visitors can see more than 8,000 trees, shrubs, ferns, bamboo, and wildflowers!

For prime holiday card photoshoots, pose in a long-time Greensboro favorite, the Tanger Family Bicentennial Garden. With flowering and deciduous trees, shrubs, and annual beds containing mass and design plantings that bring color to the site throughout the year, this garden is your destination for the perfect holiday card shot!

Looking to pick fresh fruit this month? Visit the family-owned farm, Bernie’s Berries for a day filled with a family fun and ripe strawberries! Or visit Apple Farm for ripe and juicy apples!
