U-Pick Blueberries: Top Spots for a Day Trip

Berry picking is a great summer tradition, especially for families. With many berry farms within a two hour drive, trekking out into the fields makes for a great family day trip. Many spots also offer fun, kid-friendly attractions like petting zoos, wagon rides and live music. Bring your berries home and make delicious pies, frozen cocktails and preserves to last through winter.
