You know fall is here when the pumpkin patch finally comes alive. Although the Sunshine State doesn't have a traditional fall, Floridians sure do love their pumpkins all the same. So naturally, there are great places to pick them in Florida.
While the state's near-year round warm weather certainly won't feel like the season, this fall activity still thrives here. That same warm weather is the main reason why many Floridians get out of the house in search of the perfect gourd.
Many of the farms also offer hayrides, corn mazes and other fun activities to get visitors into the spirit of the season. So prepare to have a full day of fun!
