There's nothing that says fall fun like a pumpkin patch photoshoot or meandering through an endless corn maze. Though there aren't quite as many options as in past years, there are still plenty of places to enjoy autumn fun, whether you want to shop for gourds, get lost in cornstalks or just get some good pictures for the 'gram.

We rounded up 20 local pumpkin patches and corn mazes located in and around San Antonio that are worth checking out. Each location has its own pandemic-related safety protocols, so we recommend looking online or calling ahead to double check what rules each business has in place.
