Thanks so much for this great list! We just moved here from the Midwest and weren't sure where all the fun fall places were. I'm excited to experience my first autumn in the PNW.

You're very welcome, and welcome to the area, NW Mom! I'm sure you'll love it here. I hope you'll share pictures from your adventures in the Pics & Clips Gallery.

Please do tell me your favorite place to spend a little weekend time before Halloween, as I have a youngish son who would love to go to a pumpkin patch, and looking at my weekend calendar for October, we can go to exactly one!

We love Jubilee Farms! It is full of fun! Pumpkins, hay maze and more. It makes me really motivated to do home gardening.....someday!

Thanks for the recommendation, Tanya. I think my son would love the hay maze.
