Picture this. It’s October in Tampa Bay and the temperature is starting to cool down — but is a high of 75 degrees even considered cool? For us, maybe.

You’re looking to get into the fall spirit, but we all know fall on the Gulf Coast looks a little different. Read: Swapping apple picking for haunted river cruises and parkas for denim jackets.

But there’s one fall bucket list item that you just can’t miss in the TBAY: Visiting a pumpkin patch.
