West Coast Travel News: Corn Maze in Washington, San Diego Ranked Number Two
(San Diego, California) – A new Harris poll put San Diego at the top of the list of favorite travel spots, while there's just two more weeks left of a big, seasonal attraction in Washington state.
Last weekend, there was apparently a line for miles to enter into Greenbluff, Washington, and based on attendance, you could safely bet most of these cars went to the Harvest House.
It’s the place for those pumpkin donuts you’ve been hearing about, as well as apples, pumpkins, fresh pressed cider, and the famed Harvest BBQ. The five-acre Corn Maze is still in full operation and people are raving about the time of their life they are having as they’re simply getting lost.
The festival of fall fun includes live music, the Pumpkin Princess and people can take a horse drawn carriage ride.
This weekend and next are the last two weekends of 2010 to experience this.
Their hours every day now through October 31st are 9 a.m. – 6 p.m. Corn maze admission is only $8. www.becksharvesthouse.com
Down in California, San Diego ranked number two, with New York City taking the top spot, according to a recent Harris Poll whose findings were released this week.
San Diego's popularity is soaring and its ranking improved from last year, jumping up two places from the number 4 spot. In the 12 years the poll has been conducted, San Diego has consistently ranked in the Top 10 list of cities to live, finishing in and around the second place spot since 2003.
Conducted by Harris Interactive, a leading custom market research firm, the Harris Poll surveyed 2,620 adults nationwide asking them to vote for any city in the country; not from a list of choices.
