11. Jumbo’s Pumpkin Patch – Middletown, Maryland

The owners of Jumbo’s Pumpkin Patch in Middletown, Maryland, do everything on a grand scale! Their corn maze stretches for an amazing 15 acres, and they offer a marketplace packed with delicious food and crafts made by local artists that stretches for over 6,500 square feet.

They offer lots of activities for kids, like a massive petting zoo, and wagon rides that will take you to the pumpkin patch and back. Plus, admission is free!
