Happy fall! Well, is it even fall if you don’t have a pic in a pumpkin patch? Debatable. While we don’t have that consistent crisp fall weather, we do have a few good spots to throw on a scarf and pretend like we do! Check out these spots all over town that range from a no-frills pumpkin patch to fall festivals!
If you’re looking for a full-on fall experience, this one’s your best bet. It’s about 45 minutes west of Houston, and will run you about $30 to “Dew it all.” It’s open all day on Saturdays and Sundays up until Nov. 15. Activities include: corn maze, pumpkin patch, hay ride, southern foods, and even a biergarten.
Just about 45 minutes out of town is Blessington Farms — the ultimate fall activities get away. For $20, you get to do all the fall activities — hayride, pumpkin patch, etc. They especially have a lot of fun things for the kiddos. They are open 10 am to 5 pm every Saturday and Sunday up until Nov. 21 and they have seasonal activities — so this isn’t just a fall fun spot!
This spot is in Hockley and, during the fall, is inundated with hay, pumpkins, and 85 scarecrows just….hanging out. The other ranch activities are also available. It’s open until Nov. 1 , so not just weekends! Tickets are $11.48 on Fridays and $22.95 on weekends.
Church Patches Around Town
Churches totally love fall and decorate their lawns with hay, pumpkins, etc. so that pre- or post-service you can take a pic with the pumpkins in your Sunday best. These are the usual go-tos every year:
- Grace United Methodist Church, 1245 Heights Blvd.
- St. Luke’s United Methodist Church, 3471 Westheimer Road. Note: Confirmed canceled this year.
- Memorial Drive United Methodist Church, 12955 Memorial Drive.
Note: Some of these might be canceled or have new guidelines due to COVID-19. I would recommend calling to learn more before making the trip.
Old Time Christmas Tree Farm
I know what you’re thinking. The “Christmas” in the title is a little confusing but this spot in Spring, Texas, has a multi-seasonal purpose. It’s $7 to hang out, and you can buy $3 tickets to do things like visit the petting zoo, ride the hayride, and more! Open Friday evenings and weekends all day!
Zoo Boo at the Houston Zoo
Zoo Boo is a bit different this year. Yes, there will be some festivities but no pumpkin patch. The good news is it’s available during regular business hours now with regular admission Catch it until Nov. 1.
Yes, this spot is a garden store, but hear me out. It’s adorable. If you follow a fashion blogger from Houston, she has taken photos here. And if it’s good enough for a fashion blogger, it’s definitely good enough for us! No frills or activities here, but you can pick from a wide range of different pumpkin types!
