The hot summer days have officially dwindled here on the Classic Coast. Needless to say, we find ourselves daydreaming of everything Autumn in the wake of their absence. These fall months harvest the perfect opportunity for some of our favorite cozy-weather activities: pumpkin & apple picking, hayrides & corn mazes, harvest fairs & fall festivals, and more.

When you find your hands itching for some pick-your-own experiences, here's where you can head to.
