I enjoy fall and everything it entails, especially PUMPKINS! I work for StorPlace Self Storage which is a company that supports and recognizes the importance of family and family time; our work hours are Monday through Saturday 9:00am to 5:30pm which leaves time for family fun. I also live in Murfreesboro, so I am always seeking out fun places to visit that are not too far from home.Here are two of my favorite family fun fall activities near Murfreesboro.
Lucky Ladd Farms
Lucky Ladd Farms is located in Eagleville, TN just a short 20 minute drive from Murfreesboro. Pumpkins are available for picking here beginning on September 20th through November 1st. This is a great place to take the whole family, as it is much more than just a pumpkin patch. Lucky Ladd has a full day of activities available including a petting zoo, pony rides, pumpkin patch, corn maze, and over 75 hands-on attractions. You get all of this for $10.00 ages 2-64 and ages 65 and over get in for $9.00; also parking is free. You can obtain more information by visiting their website at http://www.luckyladdfarms.com/.
Walden Pumpkin Patch
Walden Pumpkin Patch is located in Smyrna, TN which is also a short 20 minute drive from Murfreesboro. This beautiful farm is definitely worth a visit. Walden’s is open beginning September 20th through October 31st and admission to the farm, including parking is free of charge. They have hayrides, face painting, and sand art activities all for a small charge. They also have an activity area you can play in for just $4 a person which includes a corn maze, hay mountain, a 40 foot slide, seesaw, creepy corner, and several more activities. They also have concessions you can purchase while you are there; I would highly recommend the pumpkin fudge…DELICIOUS! You can visit Walden’s webpage for more information at http://www.waldenfarm.biz/.
In my opinion, you really cannot go wrong with either choice, perhaps you can just do both; whichever you choose I hope you have a great time! Happy Fall!
