In the forever-sunny city of Miami, these pumpkin patches offer a picture-perfect fall experience
While fall in Miami isn't marked by the traditional stretches of colorful leaves, cool breezes, cozy sweaters, and lots of pumpkin spice, that doesn't mean we can't indulge in some of the season's more classic activities. And nothing says fall more than pumpkin patches!
Pumpkins are the quintessential fruit of the fall. We put them in our coffee, pies, and even soups – making it a true autumnal mainstay. Here we help you choose the most suitable gourd for your Halloween carvings and pumpkin patches cravings.
Here's a list of 4 of our favorite pumpkin patches in Miami:
Enjoy family fun at Pinto's Farm
Spend some time at this quaint farm in the Redlands, and you might just believe it's fall in sunny Miami. Along with picking out the right pumpkin for carving, children can enjoy a paddleboat tour, hayrides, and pony rides at Pinto's Farm. If your small ones want to interact with farm animals, they can visit the petting zoo.
The admission charge covers the cost of the tour and a pumpkin for each guest to take home. There is also an arts and crafts area where children can decorate pumpkins with their own drawings.
Pumpkin Patch Festival at Coconut grove
The annual Coconut Grove Pumpkin Patch Festival is a major fall event in South Florida. You'll witness thousands of pumpkin patches along with live music, food, and other activities perfect for a Miami Halloween.
