1. Mayer Bros. Cider Mill

The Cider Mill is known for their amazing apple-cider slushies and fresh doughnuts but they also have treats from all over WNY. Located in West Seneca, NY, the Cider Mill has everything from home-style baked pies, doughnuts, candied apples, as well as other New York State products like jams, maple syrup, artisan cheese. They also have a pumpkin patch and horse-drawn carriage rides for everyone. They are open through November from 7am-7pm.

2. The Great Pumpkin Farm

The Great Pumpkin Farm has more pumpkins in one place than you will ever find anywhere else. Located in Clarence, NY, The Great Pumpkin Farm is open 7 days a week from 10 am to dusk. During the week, you can buy Halloween decorations, gifts, old-fashioned candy, apple cider and baked goods. On the weekends, they have activities such as their Corn Maze, Boo Barn, Amusement Rides, Zombie Train, Hayrides and much more. This weekend, in particular, is their famous World Pumpkin weigh-off, where there is a contest to see who has the world’s heaviest pumpkin. The Great Pumpkin Farm started out in 1996 as a way of celebrating the harvest of blessings we enjoy each fall and ended up in the Guinness World Book of Records for the first 1,000-pound pumpkin. The Great Pumpkin farm is definitely a must see this fall!

3. Frightworld/House Of Horrors

If you’re looking for something scarier to do, Frightworld or House of Horrors is the place to go. Frightworld is located in Tonawanda, NY and has been ranked #3 in the nation on Buzzfeed, Voted Scariest Halloween Attraction Fright of the Year 2016 and has been featured on the Travel Channel. Frightworld contains 5 different houses: Camp Massacre, Night Stalkers, Eerie State Asylum, Grind House and Insanity. Admission for all 5 houses is $28 and you can also do a 2 house pass if 5 seems like too much. (Not many people can do all 5!) They also have fright passes that allow you to skip the long lines. Frightworld is one of my favourites and I strongly recommend it!

House of Horrors is similar to Frightworld except that they have 11 attractions! They include, Hell House, Killer Theatre, Killer Theatre Chapter 2, Mark of The Beast, The Infected, The Last Ride, Escape The Serial Killer, Locked In A Room With A Zombie, Escape the Pharaoh's Tomb, Death Machine and Bomb Squad. House of Horrors has also won countless awards in Buffalo and across the U.S. They have many options for ticket pricing but is generally the same as Frightworld’s. Check out their pricing and hours in the links below:

4. Nightmare Hayrides in Ellicottville

Nightmare Hayrides in Ellicottville has, of course, a haunted hayride as well as a Haunted Maze, Haunted Barn and Food! The Haunted Hayride is 25min long and then drops you off at the Haunted Maze. Once you make it out of that you arrive at the barn where there is a vortex tunnel that takes you to food/refreshments. Cost of admission (that includes everything) is $20 and they are open Friday - Saturday - Sunday until October 29th.

6319 Sommerville Valley Road Ellicottville, NY 14731 | 716-699-4839

5. Iron Island Museum

The Iron Island Museum is one of the coolest places I have ever been to in Buffalo. They sponsor guided ghost hunts in the museum, which was built in 1885 as a church and then turned into a funeral home in the 1950’s through the year 2000. Sponsored ghost hunts are serious, but informal attempts to document paranormal activity. Paranormal Investigators have found paranormal activity here. I once did one of their overnight events and it was an experience, unlike nothing I have ever done before. I strongly recommend checking them out. (Must book ahead for overnights)

119 People Reveal How The Pandemic Has Affected Their Love Lives, And Honestly... Relatable

"I haven't been able to get out of the 'talking phase' with anyone."

The reality is, there's no part of life the pandemic hasn't affected. Whether it's your work life, your home life, your social life, or your love life, coronavirus (COVID-19) is wreaking havoc on just about everything — not to mention people's health.

When it comes to romance, in particular, people are all handling things differently and there's no "right way" of making it through, regardless of your relationship status (single, taken, married, divorced, you name it). So, some of Swoon's creators sought out to hear from various individuals on how exactly their love lives have been affected since quarantine began.

I never considered myself a cat person, but Chess immediately stole my heart.

Madelyn Darbonne

In 2016, a stray cat gave birth to a litter of three grey kittens on my aunt and uncle's property. I had never considered myself to be much of a cat person, but these furballs immediately stole my heart. I got to watch them grow up until they were old enough to leave their mother's side.

11 Reasons Why Getting A Cat Is The Best Thing You Can Do For Your Mental Health

Cats may mess up your puzzles but they'll always love you unconditionally — as long as you have some catnip, that is.

Scout Guarino

Alright, everyone, it's time to stop spreading the rumor that all cats are mean, aloof, and hate everyone. Like dogs, each cat has its own personality and tendencies. Some like a lot of attention, some like less — each person has to find the right cat for them. As for me, my cats Bienfu and Reptar have seen me at my worst, but they've also helped pull me out of it. They're a constant in my life and they give me the strength to get through the day in spite of my depression, and there's even scientific evidence to support it!
