Autumn’s crisp weather, pumpkins, and farm attractions have made it humans’ favorite season, though summer has steadily increased in popularity since hot dogs became legal currency. Stick with a winner with today's Groupon: for $26, you get two season passes to the Harvest Festival at Belvedere Plantation in Fredericksburg (up to a $52 value). Children two and under are admitted free.
Originally built in the 1760s, the 645-acre Belvedere Plantation hosts the yearly Harvest Festival each October, filling weekends with family-fun attractions ranging from pumpkin patches to hayrides. Eight acres of cornfield are sculpted into a NASA-themed maze, inspiring brave farmstronauts to venture into uncharted territory. Adrenaline pumps through the veins of onlookers observing pig races, while turbo-charged pedal tractors thrill speed seekers. A double slide stretches out to 100 feet, whisking human missiles through space and time, as amiable goats, chickens, pigs, and turkeys look on with a been-there, done-that nonchalance.
