Whether or not you’re mourning the end of summer, it’s hard to deny that there’s something refreshing about the crisp, cool air and turning leaves of autumn. It’s the season for cozy sweaters, back-to-school routines, and most importantly, getting ready for Halloween. This week we’re sharing our favorite pumpkin patches near our Pittsburgh luxury apartments, so you can grab your seasonal décor and start thinking about this year’s Jack-O-Lantern theme.

Just south of the city, you’ll find Triple B Farms, a classic, family-oriented farm that hosts exciting fall events and activities. Pick your own pumpkins days at Triple B start at the end of September and go strong through October. If you’re looking for a full day of family fun, you might also consider heading over early on a Saturday or Sunday and purchasing a wristband which gives you access to an all-inclusive day of games and activities. Weave your way through the corn maze, meet the farm animals, and try your hand at the hay bale jump. You can also visit the market on your way out and pick up farm fresh produce, baked goods, or fudge to bring home. Check out their website for more details.
Simmons Farm is another great option for seasonal fun. Their fall activities begin in mid-September and continue on through November 3rd.
