It is officially fall in Florida, and while the scorching heat, sunny beaches, and swaying palm trees may not resemble the autumn season, there are still plenty of fun activities to take part in.
So grab your boots and pumpkin spice lattes, because here are five fun activities you can do in Florida this autumn season.
Pumpkin Picking at Pinto’s Farm
Fall in Miami is in full force at this charming farm near the Redlands. After scavenging the patch for the perfect pumpkin to carve, you can take the kiddos for rides on tractors, pedal boats, and ponies. For those looking for more hands-on fun, there is even a petting zoo.
Masks are required to enter the farm and while waiting for rides.
The price of admission includes a take-home pumpkin and a guided tour. The feeding experience and photo in the patch are also available.
The pumpkin patch at Pinto’s Farms at 14890 SW 216th Street in Miami will be open Saturdays and Sundays from 10 a.m. – 6:30 p.m. until October 31.
