It's time to take a hayride, pick a pumpkin, and find your way through a corn maze. It's fall, y'all, and we've rounded up a few of our favorite places in Northeast Georgia to celebrate the changing season. Be sure to call ahead, especially when the weather is uncertain, to check hours and availability.
Buford Corn Maze
Buford Corn Maze is the close-to-home fall excursion you don’t want to miss. Find your way through the five-acre maze, visit with farm animals, take a hayride, and even walk through the haunted forest. Tickets start at just $16 and can be purchased online or in person. Hours vary, but you can check them out HERE.
The Jaemor Farms Harvest Celebration started in mid September and goes through the first weekend in November, offering hay rides, farm slides, a petting zoo, farm skee ball, a pumpkin train, duck races, tricycle races, apple cannons, and concessions. Located in Lula, GA, there is a full corn maze as well as a mini-maze for those who want a quicker visit. Tickets are $14, all-inclusive, for a full day of fall fun.

Burt's Pumpkin Farm
Burt’s Farm in Dawsonville, GA welcomed visitors back for the season at the beginning of September and is open daily from 9am to 6pm. The farm offers hayrides, a huge variety of pumpkins, local jams, jellies and pies, and some of the best scenery in the North Georgia Mountains. The drive through the mountains alone is worth the trip! Admission to the farm is free, although there is a small fee for the hayride. Go to BurtsFarm.com for more information.
The Washington Farms Bogart, GA location has lots of family fun this fall. Take a wagon ride around the farm, bounce on the jumping pillows, visit the petting zoo, and get some freshly popped kettle corn. There is a fun "cow train" for kids and a pumpkin patch to find the perfect pumpkin. Tickets start at $12.95 for weekday fun or $15.95 for weekends, with the best ticket prices found online HERE.
As the leaves continue to change this autumn, we hope you find time to get outside and enjoy these or other local businesses like them. Enjoy the cooler temperatures, catch a falling leaf, and have some good fun at a fall attraction near you.
