Sunshine State, Autumn Vibes: 5 Must-Visit Spots for Florida Girlies to Embrace Fall Fun!

Fall in Florida: The season of pumpkin spice lattes, cozy sweaters, and vibrant foliage may not be as evident in the Sunshine State, but that doesn't mean Florida girlies can't get into the fall spirit! From unique experiences to scenic locations, here are five tips and places to make the most of autumn, Florida-style.

5 Must-Visit Spots for Florida Girlies to Embrace Fall

1. Festive Farmers' Markets:

Florida's farmers' markets are brimming with the flavors of fall. Explore local vendors offering fresh pumpkins, apples, and homemade pies. These markets often feature artisanal crafts and fall-themed decorations to add that autumn touch to your home. My favorite is located at The Market at Waterside Lakewood Ranch.

2. Fall Foliage at Bok Tower Gardens:

Located in Lake Wales, Bok Tower Gardens provides a beautiful escape into nature. While Florida's trees might not don the traditional fall colors, the lush gardens are still a sight to see, especially as they prepare for the holiday season. On a cold day like today (for Floridians) getting out into nature is sure to put you in the fall spirit.

3. Pumpkin Patch Adventures:

What's fall without a visit to a pumpkin patch? From sweet treats to Instagram-worthy photo ops, Florida's pumpkin patches have it all. Many even offer hayrides and corn mazes for that classic autumn experience. My favorites include Gallagher’s, Fruitville Grove, and Hunsader Farms.

4. Enjoy a Gilmore Girls-themed coffee at Elevenses CO in Tampa:

If you're a Gilmore Girls fan and looking for a unique fall experience, Elevenses CO in Tampa is a must-visit. They've crafted a special Gilmore Girls menu that screams autumn. Enjoy a cup of coffee and indulge in delectable treats inspired by the show. It's a cozy and delightful way to celebrate the season!

5. Cozy Up with Fall Delights at Home:

For a relaxing and cozy fall experience, why not light some fall-scented candles, brew a comforting cup of apple cider, and get creative in the kitchen with some delicious fall treats? Bake apple pies, cinnamon rolls, or pumpkin spice cookies, and enjoy the aroma and taste of autumn right at home. A few of my favorites include Cinnamon Knots with Coffee Icing and Chai Sugar Cookies with Eggnog Icing.

So, even if the palm trees remain green and the temperatures stay mild, there are plenty of opportunities for Florida girlies to embrace the fall season. From festive markets to tranquil gardens, and a touch of Gilmore Girls nostalgia, as well as the warmth of your own home, you can still get your dose of autumn charm. Don't forget to document your adventures on social media and share your own tips for savoring fall in Florida!

Enjoy your fall spirit-filled adventure, and remember, it's not about the weather; it's about the experiences and the memories you create during this season. Happy Fall, my friends!
