There are a lot of amazing Pumpkin Patches in the area. But it’s all fun and games (and pumpkin cannons and farm animals) until you have to fight your way back to the city in stand-still traffic coming north on Highway 1 at 3:55pm on a Sunday.
May I humbly submit for your consideration our family’s favorite Halloween tradition: the random pumpkin patch on the side of the highway, just 5.2 miles north of the Bridge.
It’s located at TerraKids, the year-round play structure and trampoline seller (you can put TerraKids into your map application for directions). The pumpkin patch itself is appropriately called Ian’s Lazy Days Pumpkin Patch. And true to the name, there is almost no advertising online or elsewhere, nor clearly posted hours. But I have it from the owner’s mouth that they are open daily from 9am-7pm until Halloween (the posted TerraKids hours are different and less comprehensive).
Here’s why this place is so great:
A few tips:
So grab an iced coffee, lean back (but not too far) in that plastic lawn chair, and let your kids bounce their hearts out among the pumpkins!!!
