Whether you’re five or 50, there’s no activity more necessary during October than pumpkin picking! Even though we live in a bustling city, it’s still easy to escape to the many farms that we have on the outskirts of Washington, D.C. for a fun afternoon pumpkin picking with family or friends.
Check out these farms throughout the region for the perfect way to kick off the fall season – and a perfect pumpkin for displaying at your RESA apartment.
