Fall fun is the name of the game at Goebbert’s in South Barrington, where you can not only pick up all the pumpkins your heart desires, but you can also put the kids on a wagon ride or check out the exotic petting zoo (seriously, there’s a giraffe). Before you head home, get lost in the corn maze and check out the pumpkin-eating dinosaur.
It is officially fall in Chicago and that means changing leaves, oversized sweaters, apple picking, hot cider, bonfires and, of course, pumpkins. And while you may have mixed opinions about pumpkin spiced lattes and pumpkin pies, nearly everyone loves to pick out their own pumpkin. Need to track down a gourd for a jack-o-lantern? There are plenty of pumpkin patches near Chicago within a two-hour drive of the Loop. You’ll also find a variety of activities to fill your afternoon with fun, including corn mazes, hayrides and more seasonal pastimes. Plan your trip to a pumpkin patch near Chicago today, before it's too late!
