Georgia Pumpkin Patches for a Smashing-Good Time
If you ask me, fall doesn’t officially start until there is a pretty pumpkin dressing your front stoop. And a pumpkin from the grocery store won’t do – you need the memories and excitement of picking that gem from a great pumpkin patch Georgia residents love.
Sometimes you need just the right type of patch for your family. Is that an intimate u-pick in North Georgia on a weekend? Or an adventure-packed occasion with pumpkins, rides, games and more located near the city? Georgia has them all!
Here are some of the best pumpkin patches in Georgia that you're going to want to check out this fall.
