hall family farmOne of my favorite places to take the kids this time of year is Hall Family Farm.  Located right in South Charlotte, this place is fabulous.  My boys will spend hours in the huge sandbox before heading over to the covered play area filled with toys (and a fence, you know that’s important!)  There are tons of balls to bounce on, trikes to ride, cozy coupes to push around and plenty of space to run and play.  For a few dollars you can enter their famous corn maze (a short version is available for younger kids) or for $3.00 (kids under 3 are free) you can take a 15-minute hay ride scavenger hunt around the farm.  They’re serving up yummy snacks – including delicious homemade funnel cakes and fruit slushies in a variety of flavors – and there’s plenty of covered picnic tables to enjoy lunch or a quick snack.  There’s also fields upon fields of pumpkins for you to explore in order to find the perfect pumpkin for your family.

The best part?  While the food, hayrides, pumpkins and corn maze will cost you, everything else is FREE.

If the weather is nice you can almost always find us at the farm this time of year – hope to see you there sometime!
