A trip to your local Pumpkin Patch is one of the most popular things to do in October as a family. This year we checked out Live Oak Canyon Pumpkin Patch Farm in Redlands, CA. The farm was jam-packed with things to do in addition to its homegrown pumpkin patch.
The Wildlife Learning Center has provided care for displaced, rescued, and zoo-born wild animals for many years. At the time of our visit, the Wildlife Learning Center was only offering private tours so we opted for their Adventure Tour. We initially thought our 4-year-old would enjoy the tour the most, but everyone in the group loved the experience.
In December, families from all over SoCal visit Logan’s Candies to watch them make their signature peppermint candy canes. The 45-minute presentation goes from boiling the sugar into bending the candy into its iconic shape. At the end of the demo, you can even form your unique candy cane!

We really wanted to find a real farm that offered the possibility of picking pumpkins right off the vine. After some searching, we headed out towards Greenspot Farm in Mentone, CA. While the farm is pretty far off the beaten path, Greenspot more than makes up for the trip in character and charm.
