Master Guide to Fall Family Fun in Greater Houston & Surrounding Areas
At Dewberry Farm, you can get lost in the 8-acre corn maze, pick pumpkins and wildflowers, stroll through 500+ lighted and carved pumpkins in our indoor creepy woods, ride the one-mile DewVille Express train, climb 26-feet up Sliiide Mountain, and blast metal targets with the Apple cannons! Kids can also jump on the Jumping Pillows or zip down the zip lines. There’s so much more to do! Plus there is a special playground for little folks — with swings, a spider web, a giant cornbox (not sand - corn), trike track, and tractor tires to climb. There are almost 50 activities from which to pick.
Fall means harvest season, and it brings out the best in our area farms. It's a wonderful, low-cost way to get outside in the fresh air, and get active with your families.
Each farm is different -- it brings its own flavor to the experience. Browse our big list of local farms that offer fall activities, and see which new ones you want to try this season!
HALLOWEEN EVENTS & ACTIVITIES
Fun or scary: You take your pick! It's easy to evaluate all of your options with the KidsOutAndAbout.com big list of Halloween events and activities. This includes the scary stuff that my kids will probably not venture into until they're too cynical to enjoy it, and the wonderful gentle trick-or-treat parties that the towns, museums, and farms provide. (The number of fun stuff outweighs the scary activities by a margin, but there's something for everyone.) We tag each activity as being either scary or fun (or both) so you know exactly what you're getting into!
We even have a list of alternative Halloween celebrations!
Buy your fall pumpkins at a boring old grocery store? Not when you can head to a farm or roadside stand and pick the perfect pumpkin for a less money and more fun! Here is KidsOutAndAbout's list of places to pick pumpkins in our area.
