If you're looking for new places to make memories that'll last a lifetime this Autumn, we've got them by the bushel!

Featured Fall Fun Around Spartanburg County

Get the most out of your trip by spending a full day of fun at these spots throughout the area:

  • Johnson Farms in Inman SC - Take an old-fashioned hayride, navigate through a six-acre corn maze, find a treasure in the gem mine, explore the pumpkin patch, and let the kiddos just be kiddos for a while in the play area and on the pedal cars. You can also purchase fresh apples in the Johnson Farms Country Store and enjoy one of America's most delectable seasonal delicacies: apple cider donuts.
  • Strawberry Hill U.S.A in Chesnee, SC - Get “lost in the stalks” of their corn maze, embark on their wagon ride adventure, pick from their ever-growing pumpkin patch, and cap the day off with a snack from their cafe or ice cream parlor. You can even sit a while at their 61 year old peach shed while you’re there, too.

One of the longest-standing fall traditions is packing up the family to go pick out a couple of gorgeous gourds at the pumpkin patch.
