It’s official – sweater weather is here! Temperatures are cooling down, the leaves are turning colors, and people are gearing up for the holidays. A great way to get into the fall spirit is to head to one of these farms near Romeoville. These three are offering all your favorite seasonal activities with enforced social distancing guidelines, and they’re all a short drive from our apartments in Romeoville.
Konow’s Corn Maze
Konow’s Corn Maze challenges customers to wind their way through false-starts, twists and turns, and towering corn stalks. Once you arrive, select the difficulty level that best suits you and your party. The first option consists of nearly 3.5 miles corn paths that will seriously test your skills. The second is just 0.4 miles and is perfect for those who want to take it easy. Groups will be staggered every 10 minutes to ensure appropriate distancing.
Once you complete the maze, reward your efforts with a pumpkin from their pumpkin patch, or browse their selection of fall decorations, including scarecrows, hay bales, gourds, corn stalks, and more.
Siegel’s Cottonwood Farm
The Travel Channel, AmericanTowns Media, and MSN voted Siegel’s Cottonwood Farm the #1 Pumpkin Patch in the U.S. Visit any time through October 31 to discover the fun for yourself! Established in 1909, Siegel’s has a pick-your-own pumpkin patch as well as 10-acre corn maze. If you’re feeling peckish, there are plenty of places to satisfy your appetite on-site. Enjoy a fresh apple cider donut or order fresh kettle corn from Papa’s Poppin’ Shed.
Bengtson’s Pumpkin Farm
Stop by Bengtson’s Pumpkin Farm for the full fall experience. Every year, Bengtson’s throws a Pumpkin Fest that features an enormous pick-your-own pumpkin patch, dozens of attractions (including a pumpkin cannon!), and delicious, homemade treats. The farm also prides itself on its fresh apple cider donuts, churros, kettle corn, rustic bread, and award-winning barbecue. Make it a tradition, and go year after year.
After you enjoy your favorite socially distanced fall activities at one of these farms near Romeoville, head to a local drive-in and enjoy an outdoor movie.Back to all posts
