    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Stanley is rated as a safe (low risk) town according to the crime statistics. The levels of all crimes (violent and non-violent) are about half the level of an average American town.
    There are only 3 sex offenders in the area (see website below).

    If you use precautions like keeping an eye on the children if they are with you and locking your car doors, then you should have no problems in this nice quiet community.

    If you are in the Stanley area in early fall of the year (Mid-September to end of October) and you have kids with you, then you might like this diversion for a couple of hours.

    It is basically a corn/pumpkin farm where the Wickham family is trying to make a few extra bucks out of the land and the season.
    You can pick'n'pluck your own pumpkin from the field. You can see the way the farmers keep the birds out of the corn. They have a cornfield maze you can navigate. There are pumpkins you can draw on or carve for fun and art. They even let you pet some of the farm animals (chickens, goats and pigs mostly).
    Restrooms and refreshments are available.
    All this and fresh air and sunshine for only $5. Kids seem to like it.

    to get there:
    2205 route 5/20
