Fall in Los Angeles isn’t like fall in most of the country. For starters, the weather is still pretty warm, which doesn’t produce a fall-like atmosphere.

While the L.A. Basin may not receive fall-like weather, that doesn’t mean that the region doesn’t roll out the orange carpet for this special season. Just as there are strip malls and freeways that lace this sprawling metropolis, there will be a ton of pumpkin patches and corn mazes that will provide fall fun for SoCal families.

Here are the best pumpkin patches and corn mazes families should not miss out on in Los Angeles and its surroundings.
