|The Endless Maze at Arata Farm|
The main attraction at Arata's Farm in Half moon Bay, CA is not the pumpkins, it's the maze. Our kids both wanted to try it but I didn't see the point in going myself - why pay $10 to get lost when I do that almost every day for free? My husband would have gone, but not for $10! Anyway, this maze is so complicated they actually have a lifeguard ready to direct people to an emergency exit.

Finally the kids were done with the maze and we could look at pumpkins. They had many to choose from but none that you actually picked from the vines. So we decided to go to another farm (Bob's Pumpkin Farm) for a more authentic experience and less expensive pumpkins. But I must say that Arata's had a greater variety to choose from.
Arata's Farm is less crowded than Lemos Farm but much noisier than Bob's. But it is lots of fun, I do recommend it.
If you go: Arata Farm is south of Half Moon Bay on HWY 1. Drive past Bob's another 1/4 mile and you'll see it on the left.
