Though September's weather is funky in Atlanta (sometimes hot, sometimes cool), the month certainly indicates pumpkin time! Pumpkin patches near Atlanta offer a million ways to carve, decorate, pie, seed, and lots of other verbs fall's best gourd. Visiting an Atlanta pumpkin patch is an full-day experience —a way to greet fall, bond with friends and family, spend time outdoors, and enjoy the colors and splendor of a new season.

Pumpkin patches near Atlanta offer, of course, a large selection of pumpkins, but other attractions like corn mazes, petting zoos, and playgrounds will keep the kiddos entertained the whole day.

Fall is one of the best times in Atlanta to enjoy Mother Nature, watch the leaves change color, and share family time together. Once you've brought home those pumpkins of all shapes and sizes, learn how to carve them, bowl with them, or most deliciously, bake with them. If pumpkins aren't your thing, head outdoors for Atlanta apple picking, of which many orchards also have fun activities and attractions for kids. Read on for our list of the best pumpkin patches near Atlanta, and get more seasonal ideas by visiting our Fall guide!
