With Halloween right around the corner and fall finally (sort of?) in the air, it's time to gather up the kids and head out to one of the many pumpkin patches near Houston for one of our favorite fall activities for kids.

We've rounded up several different pumpkin patches in Houston, as well as our favorite nearby farms for a day trip. These area u-pick spots really get all decked out for fall with corn mazes, evening pumpkin strolls, hayrides, petting zoos, and of course, plenty of pumpkin patch photo-ops.
