These 7 Cozy Hayrides In Arizona Are Picture Perfect For An Autumn Day
Even if the leaves aren’t changing colors in your area of the state, there are still plenty of things you can do to celebrate fall. Some of your options are pretty classic: visit a pumpkin patch, attend a harvest festival, or go for a hayride. You can do all of those right here in Arizona but today we’re going to focus on that last option. Let’s take a look at some of the places you can go for a kid-friendly or spooktacular hayride!
1. Apple Annies, Willcox
Hop aboard the tractor-drawn hayride at this orchard! It’s what will take you from the entrance to their orchards and pumpkin patch. When here, you can also opt for just a hayride or combine it with a go through 20 acres of their corn maze!

If you’re not up for dragging the kids once they run out of steam from pumpkin picking, riding ponies, and watching shows, then you’ll want to go for a peaceful ride on the tractor-drawn hayride. It’s a soothing experience where you’ll also get a personal tour by one of the farmers!

In between that, enjoy a hayride around the farm with a hot chocolate and enjoy the agricultural views in the middle of a city.
