The 5 Best Pumpkin Patches Near Miami
Just because we’re in Miami doesn’t mean we can’t indulge the seasonal urge to decorate pumpkins, dress up scarecrows and take autumnal selfies. Throw on your favorite (lightweight) sweater and head to these pumpkin patches complete with beer, corn mazes and all the fall vibes you can handle. Pro tip: Call ahead to make reservations and don’t forget your mask.
1. Pinto’s Farm
Pinto’s is one of South Florida’s largest pumpkin patches, so the family-run operation has the whole fall fun thing down to a science. Along with an admirable squash selection, you’ll find fruit smoothies, hayrides and animals every weekend through November 1. Be sure to get lost in the farm’s hay maze, which is made with more than a thousand bales. Before you make the drive, make sure to call ahead for reservations.

2. The Little Farm
Pumpkins, a petting zoo and…frozen treats? You’re still in Miami, after all. Open every weekend through October, the Little Farm’s socially distanced Fall Festival offers everything you’d expect from your neighborhood farm, plus a lineup of local food vendors. Just make sure to call for reservations as this year’s event is open for call-ahead only.

If its name is any indication, Pumpkin Towne takes its annual fall duties seriously. With three South Florida locations (Jupiter, Wellington and Stuart) open through October, this family-run operation offers plenty of photo ops, carving stations and food (including their legendary pumpkin pie).

4. Not So Spooky Drive-Thru Adventure and Pumpkin Patch
Through October, celebrate the fall season from the comfort of your car with a drive-thru pumpkin patch at Tamiami Park.

Choose a pumpkin, carving kit and take all the #fall photos while remaining socially distant. Plus, the Trick-O-Treating Alley allows kids to collect candy and treats from the safety of your car, too. For those comfortable with exiting their car, a harvest market will be on-site, filled with various fall-inspired eats.
