pumpkin patches in longviewIt’s one of our favorite times of the year at Hospitality Health ER. That’s because it’s time to enjoy the outdoors with crisp autumn weather, the beauty of changing foliage, and family time at one of the pumpkin patches in Longview. Fresh air does a body good!

As a matter fact, there’s been scientific proof that spending time outdoors provides a number of health benefits like increase in brain function, exposure to Vitamin D, graceful aging, lower stress levels, and balanced moods. So if you want to take advantage of all the benefits of outdoor play, why not start with one of these fun fall pumpkin patches close by?
