Family Day Out at Tom's Farms in Corona, CA
With plenty of family attractions to choose from, Tom’s Farms in Corona, CA is a great way to spend a weekend afternoon. And that is just what we did last Sunday. Luckily, Tom’s Farms is sort of central location for us and our extended family, so it’s a great halfway between spot to meet up – it’s got something for kids and adults. Here are some highlights of our afternoon.
This is one of the best features of Tom’s Farms. Located in the center of the venue, families can enjoy listening to live music, grab a bite to eat at one of the three restaurants onsite, or just cop a squat under a shade tree or table. The pond is also great backdrop for some family photos and kids will love meeting the family of ducks and even a turtle or two. On the weekends, live music concerts featuring local talent are free. Take a look at the event calendar to see a list of Live Entertainment music performers and upcoming dates.
All aboard! Kids will have a blast on this authentic reproduction of an 1800s steam-propelled train. For $3 per rider, the train tours over 10 beautiful acres through an Amish-style covered bridge. You may even catch a glimpse of an elk or other wildlife. Located in the Family Fun Zone, the attraction is open on Weekends only from 10:00 am – 6:00 pm.
Old Time Carousel
Make some great family memories on this classic, amusement park-style carousel. With beautiful wooden horses, this ride is perfect for all ages.
Little one can get their hands dirty and experience what it’s like to be an actual farmer driving a tractor and plowing fields on this cool attraction.
What farm would be complete without a pony ride? For $5, your little cowboy or cowgirl can giddy up on their favorite pony. Pony ride hours are from 11:00 am – 5:00 pm.
Candy Shoppe & Farmer’s Market
Hmmm. A Candy Shoppe and a Farmer’s Market in the same building? I guess opposites do attract! Offering so many different varieties of candies, chocolates, snacks, nuts, sauces, mixes, and more, the Candy Shoppe has something to satisfy your sweet tooth. Want a healthier option, walk a few steps over and you’ll find yourself in the Farmer’s Market, stocked with fresh and local fruits, vegetables, and produce.
Tom’s Farms also has a Weekend Craft Fair, a furniture store, a wine and cheese store, a fudge shop, a petting zoo, and a free Magic Show with four performance each weekend at 12 noon and 2:00 pm.
