The lure of big, fat, fresh pumpkins may get you to explore pumpkin patches in Georgia, but these five fall activities will keep you there long after the pumpkins have been put into the trunk.
Reserve a fire pit at Southern Belle Farms to cap off a day at the farm with smores.
In addition to pumpkins, a corn maze and huge jumpy pillow, Southern Belle Farm in McDonough also has several fire pits available for rent during the fall season. Bring some s’more fixings and enjoy a perfect fall evening under the stars. You’ll need to plan though; you must reserve one of the fire pits at least eight days ahead of your desired date, but the good news is you can request a campfire reservation online.
