The Best (and Most Instagrammable) Pumpkin Patches to Visit This Fall

By Anna Quintana

Fall is officially here, which means it's time to grab your favorite fall sweater, drink that pumpkin spice latte, and head out to enjoy the great outdoors before it gets too cold to function. And by great outdoors, we mean your local pumpkin patch. Even if you live in major cities like New York or Los Angeles, you don't have to travel too far to pick some gourds, ride a wagon full of hay, or get lost in a corn maze. 

Plus, just think of the content you will be creating for your Instagram followers. It's a win-win for everyone. Check out the list below for the best pumpkin patch near your zip code.

Alstede Farms in Chester, New Jersey.

You'll have to leave Manhattan to find an Instagram-worthy pumpkin patch, but trust us, the drive is worth it. There is the Elwood Pumpkin Farm in Long Island, where you can pick the bright orange gourds, enjoy a hayride, and explore a corn maze. Plus, there is no admission fee — just pay for what you pick. 

If you prefer traveling to New Jersey, Alstede Farms is also a good choice. Accessible by New Jersey Transit (for non-drivers), there are plenty activities to enjoy including apple and pumpkin picking, a 10-acre corn maze, and farm animals. Oh, and don't forget to check out the cider mill or winery if you have time.
