Hill Ridge Farms is located just outside of Wake Forest and near Raleigh NC. The fall festival at the farm is a lot of fun and includes picking your own pumpkin after the hay ride to a big grassy area. There are a variety of things to do on the farm including mazes, a train ride, gem stone panning, a big tube slide, a corn pit (lots of fun!), animal corral, teepee and many exhibits.
Know if you go: The general admission for the Fall Festival does not automatically include the train ride, pony rides, gem panning or games on the farm. Weekdays during the fall season are a good time to go if you do not want to wait in lines for the kids to play but don't mind missing out on events like the live music. General admission: $10/person, Superpass: $20/person
