When I think of LA County, a few things come to mind...
Vast, creepy corn mazes worthy of a Stephen King novel.
Okay, so Los Angeles isn't a big corn maze mecca ... but it does have a dandy one right at the Lombardi Ranch in Saugus. From late summer through November, this family-owned working farm grows tomatoes, onions, peppers, squashes, melons, flowers, pumpkins and corn. (I don't mean a few cute stalks for atmosphere, I'm talking rows upon meandering rows of corn laid out in an actual maze. Seriously, I'm surprised an alien hasn't placed a crop circle in the middle of it.)
During October, the ranch is a veritable fall wonderland with all kinds of activities including pumpkin picking, a petting zoo, wagon and train rides, face painting, a scarecrow making contest and an opportunity to wander around the mother of all corn mazes!
