Here's where you can find pumpkin patches in Florida

We may feel like we only get one season in the sunshine state, but that doesn't mean you have to miss out on fall activities.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla — We get it. Fall in Florida doesn't feel like, well...fall. But that doesn't mean you have to miss out on all the fun!

Fall is a mood, a feeling and it can even be re-created under the hot Florida sun. So, we took a moment to help you out and track down some of the top spots across the Tampa Bay area.
