G&M Farms Cornfield Maze & Pumpkin Patch
LIVERMORE, Calif. Sept. 29-Oct. 31
G&M Farms is probably the only maze that has been featured on the "Late Show With David Letterman." A few years ago, Letterman's pal Biff Henderson was assigned to make his way from one side of the property to the other, and it wasn't easy. This year, after you're done being the Biff in a maze in the shape of the farm's name, shop for fresh produce, pick pumpkins, and ride the cow train. Open daily. Admission is $8, children 6 to 11, $7.

Open every day but Sunday, but it's haunted only Tuesday to Saturday nights. "Corn cops" will help if you get lost or scared. Admission is $7, children 5 to 10 $4.
