The leaves are still green and the nights are still warm - It can be difficult to get in to the Pumpkin Spice feeling when we live in the state of perpetual summer. Our reader's share inspiration on how to get in the Fall mood with Autumnal festivities and activities that will have you reaching for your flannel scarves.
Some Floridians have a few destinations in mind to immerse themselves in the feeling of Fall...
"When our kids were young we liked to take them to Stanley Pond Adventure Farm in Astatula for the Fall Festival. U-Pick sunflowers, pumpkin decorating, jumping pillow, and loads more. It’s a lot of fun and reasonably priced too." - Julie Anne Leggett
"I plan to take my grandchildren to Bedner’s Farm Fall Festival in Boynton Beach. It runs weekends beginning September 30th. Pumpkin patch, hayrides around their beautiful 80 acres of working farm, corn maze, petting zoo, kids rides, food, craft vendors and more! No entry fee. We made our first trip last year and plan to make it an annual event." - Chris Michaelian
"Southern Hill Farms in Clermont is a family owned and operated u-pick blueberry farm. During each week in October you can enjoy their Pumpkin Patch Fall Festival with live music and yummy food from the food trucks. Be sure to visit their gift shop, beverage bar and bakery!" - Chris Foxen
"Quiet Waters Park in Deerfield Beach has family campfires and hay rides, I’m taking my grandchild there this year just as I used to take my kids there too. Lots of fun" - Daphne Coquis
...And others just want to enjoy the thing that is most unique about our home - the beach!
"One last trip.. I beach it all of Florida's winter..." - Annette LeVasseur
"I can always go to the beach because I live in fllorida." - Kathy Ritchie
"Florida doesn't get fall until November. We enjoy the beach year round!!" - Nancy Oyer
