The leaves are beginning to turn, and the temperatures are becoming sort-of crisp, which can only mean Fall is near! Fall means more than just sweater weather and pumpkin spice — it also means haunted houses, hay rides, corn mazes and more. Since there are SO many things to check out this Fall, we’ve put together an extensive list that will show you where all the action is happening.
