The sound of crunchy leaves underfoot, the smell of clean, crisp air and of course the pinch of pumpkin in everything we order means fall has definitely arrived here in Colorado!  With the changing season comes a wide variety of fall and Halloween specific activities.  Check out some of our favorite things to do in October:


Rock Creek Farm- Corn Maze

Located in Broomfield, at Rock Creek Farm you will find Colorado’s largest corn mazes, an October must. Pick your challenge level by selecting between four different corn maze designs, ranging from an easy 0.3 mile maze to a 4.2 mile vampire themed maze, accommodating all ages and abilities.  Also, enjoy games designed within the maze, along with pumpkin patches, farm animals, and a family fun area to create an exciting and memorable experience.
