Welcome to Wonder and Wander’s Guide to Fall Fun in Jackson County. We’ll be highlighting some of our favorite spots throughout October and handing out some “awards” along the way – so check back often!
No pumpkins? No problem!
As Halloween gets closer and closer, you might be feeling pressed for time to grab some gourds, but luckily there is no shortage of options in Jackson County! Not up for a full-fledged visit to a pumpkin patch? These locations offer grab-and-go pumpkin options, which will leave you with plenty of time to carve them! (Fun fact: the only year we skipped the pumpkin patch was when Big broke his arm and required surgery. Farm-stand pumpkins were the perfect options that year!)
Now the only question is – which way will you go? Spooky, scary, or silly?
