Southern Maryland Fall Activity Guide And Giveaway!

Today marks the first official day of fall. Autumn is my personal favorite time of the year

and I could not be more excited. Pumpkin spice, the leaves changing colors, corn mazes, I love it all. Autumn is the perfect time to get lost in a maze, carve the best pumpkin, go camping, and maybe venture around an apple orchard searching for the best apples. Get your fluffy socks on, some apple cider, and get ready to hear about all the things to do this season! Be sure to keep checking for individual guides for some farms, so you know what to expect when you visit. If any more fall activities pop up I will be sure to add those too.
