9 Pumpkin Patches and Farms to Visit This Fall
Fall is finally here in Dallas! Whether you’re a basic white girl or not, you’re probably glad to have some relief from the heat! And, fall doesn’t just mean cooler temps: it means changing leaves, pumpkin spice everything, family photos, corn mazes, and pumpkins. Here is a list of the best places to grab a pumpkin (or a picture!) this fall.
Autumn at the Arboretum is one of Dallas’s favorite fall traditions; this is its 14th year! Whether you need family photos, or just some good shots for the ‘gram, this display of over 90,000 pumpkins is your spot! This year’s theme is “It’s The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown.” In addition to the pumpkin houses and other creative displays, you can catch topiaries of Charlie Brown, Peppermint Patty, Marcie, Pig Pen, and more! And, don’t miss the hay bale maze. Autumn at the Arboretum is open through October 31st.
