Though we have great plans for travel with our littles, but truth is we can’t always fit in long trips right now. So I’m constantly taking hints from other moms and even local events I see on Facebook to find ways we can enjoy each other simply for the day.
Here in Northern Virginia there are tons of great activities that are usually within about an hour away from our home. So this past weekend’s adventure was at Hartland Orchard! Not only do they have a fantastic location for picking apples and other tasty fruits and veggies, they have a fun Pumpkin Festival that you can participate in. The boys had a blast and everyone crashed by the end of the day!
The cost per person was $10, but you were able to do a Corn Maze, tunnel slide, enjoy live music, try out the apple cannon, and several other fun activities. I would definitely recommend it as sometimes the other popular pumpkin patches in the surrounding areas can be overcrowded on the weekends and/or even more expensive. It just depends on what you want to do!
What are some of your favorite day trips to take with your kids? As the season changes and it gets cooler here, I want to take advantage of as much as we can! Hope you had a wonderful weekend.
