The Halloween spirit has officially hit D.C. and the surrounding area – we love seeing all the spooky decorations popping up! If you haven’t picked out the perfect pumpkin for carving yet, don’t worry you still have plenty of time – and options. The District may lack the pumpkin patches and orchards associated with this time of year, but there are lots of great places within an hour’s distance to put you in the autumn frame of mind. Grab the kids and make a day of it!
