Before the pandemic, Tara hosted a French exchange student named Lucie at our place. They did so many things together including Trunk or Treat, riding the Zamboni at the hockey game but their favorite thing was visiting the various corn mazes throughout the Southern Tier.

All that scary stuff is fine and dandy but if you want to try something that won't cause wetness Here's an idea: Take the scenic trip to Iron Kettle Farm in Candor, Jackson Farm in Endicott, or Apple Hills in Binghamton. It's also a wonderful way to get in a little outdoor exercise for everyone.

Of course, when we talk about spooky and fun places to visit near Binghamton, we can't forget about our famous skeleton on Country Club Road in Endicott.
