Among the most classic examples of Fall entertainment is the old fashioned hayride, in which individuals are pulled along for a scenic ride in a wagon or truck. With passengers sitting comfortably in layers of dried grass and enjoying the crisp air, hayrides have become synonymous with Fall and perfectly embody the spirit of the season.
With options for both relaxing hayrides and haunted-themed rides for a more adventurous affair, there are hayrides designed for everybody. Whether you plan to share a ride with family, friends, or a significant other, there is fun to be had regardless of age.
