Fall is here! Harvest, Apple Cider, Pumpkins, Scarecrows, Corn Mazes, Halloween! We could argue that autumn may just be the best season of the year. And we could also argue that the Salt Lake Valley is one of the best places to celebrate the best Fall has to offer. 

Check out our list 5 activities and events that will help you enjoy the season with family and friends.

Cross E Ranch

During the Fall festival at Cross E Ranch everyone will find something to love. You can spend hours in the nearly 7-mile corn maze, enjoy a hay ride to visit the cows on the farm, play in the over 6 tons of corn kernels at the corn pit, pet the goats, piglets, mini-donkeys and other farm animals, or climb the hay pyramid and go down the mega hay slide. Evenings are just as delightful. You could enjoy the sunset around one of the many fire pits, or on select nights watch a movie at the barn or kick up your heels with some swing dancing.  

Tickets and additional information are available at the Cross E Ranch website
