San Mateo County Fall Activities

San Mateo Spooky

Here in San Mateo County, Fall is marked by some hot days and the sun starting to set a bit earlier. It’s the best time of year to get out to our local farms for some pumpkin patch picking, hit up local carnivals and even sneak in some trick-or-treating, if candy is your thing.

Here is our guide for must-see, shouldn’t-miss, check-it-out activities this month!

Pumpkin Patches
Farmer John’s – Half Moon Bay
Andreotti Farms – Half Moon Bay
Pastorino Farms – Half Moon Bay
Bob’s Pumpkin Farm – Half Moon Bay

Tips & tricks: We suggest arriving at all of these farms early, or a the very end of the day to avoid crowds. Always check the traffic to/from Half Moon Bay and bring a picnic lunch or plan out where you will eat coast-side.
