Find Your Fall Festival – From the Sweetest to the Scariest!
The leaves might still be green and the air humid but that doesn’t mean you can’t celebrate fall in Florida. There are plenty of ways to usher in the season: pick the perfect pumpkin, lose yourself in a corn maze, or take a hayride. If you’re looking for some fall chills, your best bet might be to visit a haunted house or take a ride on a spooky Halloween train.
