While August is still here, it’s quickly making its grand exit. And in less than 30 days it will officially be Fall. Fort Braggers will still rock flip flops and occasionally wear their Uggs. Starbucks lines will be long with cars in anticipation of “Pumpkin” everything season and families will also be looking for Fall outdoor activities to do. Luckily living in the Fort Bragg/Fayetteville area allows us to live near rural areas with awesome farms and plenty of space for mazes and picking Fall goodies.

It’s obvious we here at Army Wife 101 are excited about the upcoming pumpkin season and thought we would share some cool places to add to your “Must Go There” list.
