The former is perfect for families, pictures and friends, while the latter is the dream of thrill-seekers. Which fall activity is your favorite?

There are few things more pleasing to the eye than a lawn full of pumpkins ripe for picking and carving. Does picking out a pumpkin need to be a ceremonial task, complete with flannel, warm lattes and laughter? No. But is it utter bliss when it happens? Yes.

Depending on how advanced your chosen pumpkin patch is, your experience could be complete with fresh apple cider, hay rides and kettle corn. All together, a visit to your local pumpkin patch is the ultimate way to celebrate fall. Find one near you:

Pumpkin patches are for the weak. 

Haunted houses, on the other hand, bring people together through shared terror, and what could be better? Through the ups and downs of suspense and adrenaline, haunted houses provide the complete package of full moons, monsters and horror.

The Lineup ranks the best haunted houses in the country. Pennsylvania's Pennhurst Asylum takes the top spot, where guests take a tour through the former asylum, which is said to be haunted to this day. 

If hospitals aren't you're thing, head over to Philadelphia to tour the abandoned Eastern State Penitentiary. Or to Norcross, Georgia to be spooked by some of the same actors who grace "The Walking Dead." 

No matter what your poison is, haunted houses are the far superior fall activity.
