It's that time of year again...October. Or as I like to call it OCT-Pumpkin-Spice-Everything-OBER. I grew up in Upstate New York where Fall was idyllic. We're talking Hay rides (Haunted and Apple orchards), leaves changing color, and of course - pumpkin patches and corn mazes. 

Thankfully Jacksonville FL seeks out plenty of opportunities for us to enjoy fall festivities. Take a look at the list below, you're sure to find a local pumpkin patch or maze in your neck of the woods!
