Where to find the best pumpkin patch Miami has to offer

Relish in the great fall tradition of picking gourds the size of your head at the best pumpkin patches in Miami

Just because it’s still one-million degrees out, it doesn’t mean you can’t spend the day at the pumpkin patch. Miami may not cool off in the fall but the city still finds ways to embrace seasonal traditions, like picking gourds, drinking spiced things (some Miami bars even serve spiked cider!) and binge-watching football (It’s no wonder sports bars in Miami are the busiest in the fall.) Another thing Miami pumpkin patches uphold: social-distancing practices. Some are outdoors within large farms where kids can visit petting zoos or get lost in a corn maze, while others offer the option to drive through and remain safely in your car. Whether you’re looking for a large jack-o’-lantern to carve or an adorable harvest set-up to snap for the ’gram, the pumpkin patches in Miami tick off your fall list of must-dos.

This adorable pumpkin patch has been around for nearly four decades, and it offers much more to do than picking gourds. There’s a petting zoo, a butterfly garden, a corn maze and pony rides for the little ones (an extra $2)—plus so many fall-inspired photo ops. The farm is open weekends by appointment only, and admission is $10. Oct 10–Nov 1

5. Harvest Festival

Things to do Festivals The Berry Farms, Redlands

Though we can’t fake the weather in Florida, we can embrace fall’s traditions. Get your fill of pumpkins, haystacks and other seasonal hallmarks at this annual festival. It’s all outdoors (good for social distancing!) and there are sunflower fields to roam, tractors to ride and traditional yard games, like cornhole and shuffleboard, to keep you busy between photo ops.

Are the kids still restless?
