  • Creepy Ridge
    The spooky apparitions lurking inside Rt. 22 Nightmare Haunted Hayride and House send shivers up the spines of riders of all ages. Every Friday and Saturday from October 7 to October 29, emerging specters invite more goose bumps than Transylvania's ice-skating scene along little-seen hayride trails around Route 22. After exiting the fright-wagon, guests tiptoe through a haunted house before a fire pit chases away the evening's chills with beams of concentrated coziness.

  • Country Pumpkins
    Like a pumpkin sprouting from a field, the Country Pumpkins fall festival grew from a relatively small thing. In 2000, the Colson family began selling pumpkins on the side of the road, trusting passersby to leave their payments in a simple honesty box. The customers came through, helping the small venture grow eventually into an annual event with rides and mazes. Today, the festival?held at the Colson's family farm, Alpine Hills Dairy Farm?features everything from tractor-drawn hayrides snaking through the land to a farm-animal petting zoo and corn maze. The hay maze continues the outdoor family fun and a barrel train ride for kids 13 and under in the crisp autumn air, leaves nearby scarecrows dreaming of careers as conductors. With a variety of pumpkins for sale, families can seek out the idea pumpkin to carve or roast.

  • EarthJoy Tree Adventures
    The exuberant energy of childhood led many youthful explorers to climb their first tree, but the staff of EarthJoy Tree Adventures turned it into a lifetime pursuit. During safety-conscious lessons, instructors combine the rope-assisted techniques of rock-climbing with a few tree-specific tricks honed over lots of practice. They scurry up the trunks of old, vibrant trees, swing, surf and hang amid the branches, and rappel down. They teach students how to bring gear up with them during a climb and string a hammock between branches. Such hammocks provide a restful retreat from the world below—even a place to pass the night as humanity’s ancient ape-like ancestors must have: nestled among the high bows of a tree, waiting for a flash of lightning so they could read a few more words in their book. During the winter months, they teach in a magnificent treehouse, the building of which was featured on Animal Planet's Treehouse Masters.

  • Pendleton Country Club
    Sequestered in the rolling hills of Pendleton County, Pendleton Country Club dispatches golfers out across 18 scenic holes. Four of those stops are par 5's, including the lengthy second hole, which stretches a daunting 613 yards from the back tee. Away from the links, golfers can get some practice at an on-site driving range. They can also take a dip in the club's recently renovated pool, or they can stop by one of its lakes to consult the property's fish about a particularly challenging approach shot.
