Just because we’re in Miami doesn’t mean we can’t indulge in the seasonal urge to decorate pumpkins, dress up scarecrows and take autumnal selfies. Throw on your favorite (lightweight) sweater and head to one (or more) of these best pumpkin patches near Miami, complete with beer, corn mazes and all the fall vibes you can handle. Pro tip: Call ahead to confirm openings and don’t forget your mask.
