Apple trees at The Farm at Swan's Trail
3. The Farm at Swan's Trail, Snohomish
For a quick trip from the Seattle area, The Farm at Swan’s Trail southeast of Everett, is a sure bet. Set along the Snohomish River, The Farm hosts U-pick apples and an enormous 45-acre pumpkin patch. After your wagon is piled high with fruit, let the kids loose to find their way through an intricate corn maze, in the shape of Washington state, then visit pigs and ducks at the petting zoo. There's also a mini-train for kids, a playground and more.
Get pickin': You can pick apples starting in mid-September. According to the Facebook page, in light of COVID-19, the fall season — including apple picking — is still being developed with safety in mind. Check the Facebook page for updates and availability of activities.
