Here's a recipe for a perfect fall day: start with a ride on a Seastreak ferry, then add a day at A. Casola Farm's Fall Fest sipping apple cider, snacking on funnel cake and sausage and peppers, and selecting the perfect pumpkin to take home. With Seastreak you can enjoy a relaxing ride to the fest from one of two pickup spots, taking in sights along the way. Then once you dock their free shuttle will take you the rest of the way. At Fall Fest you can buy your Halloween pumpkins, take a hayride or enjoy the pony rides and petting zoo with the little ones. There's also a giant corn maze with more than three miles of trails to get lost in. And after you've worked up an appetite in the maze, indulge in candy apples, fresh-baked pies, roasted corn and potatoes and the farm's famous apple cider doughnuts. And when you're all done the shuttle and ferry will be there to take you home. Learn More
