Just because seasons don’t change here in Miami it doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy quintessential fall activities!
True, fall in Miami doesn’t involve the typical changing leaves, crisp air, wooly sweaters and pumpkin spice galore…but that doesn’t mean we cannot still indulge in a little bit of fall fun with some traditional fall activities. And is there something more autumnal than pumpkins? Probably not. Pumpkins are the predilect fruit of Fall. they’re in our lattes, our pies, cookies and even donuts sometimes. Nor is there something quite like a perfectly carved jack-o-lantern to get you into the mood for the spooky season. The versatile orange fruit is a total staple of fall, that’s why we’ve put together a list of the best pumpkin patches in the area so you can pick out the perfect Miami gourd!
