Fall is officially here.  It's time for cooler weather hot chocolate and pumpkin patches! Where's the best pumpkin patch in the city?

Coming from Florida, going to pumpkin patches and enjoying the fall weather wasn't something I was accustomed to. It wasn't until I moved to Alabama when I really got a chance to see leaves change colors, feel cooler fall weather, and experience a real pumpkin patch.

Last year, my wife and I decided to take our newborn son to the Griffin Farms Pumpin Patch. It was such an amazing time.

After a great experience last year, we're looking to not only go back but try out more pumpkin patches around Tuscaloosa. The only question I have is what are the best places to try?

Where is that perfect pumpkin patch that you and your family enjoy going to year after year? Maybe they sell a great cup of hot chocolate, cider, or even pumpkin spice-flavored items.

So far, I've come up with a list of the best-reccomended pumpkin patches near Tuscaloosa. If you notice one of your favorites isn't on the list, feel free to send me your suggestions inside our app chat feature.
