Now that the sweltering summer heat is finally gone and fall is officially upon us in Charlotte, we can all begin to enjoy fall’s gorgeous leaves, colorful mums, and PUMPKINS! Did you know that there are numerous activities you can do with a pumpkin other than carving it? You can roast pumpkin seeds, bake a delicious pumpkin pie, whip up a pumpkin smoothie, or even use a hollow pumpkin as a drink holder at a party! By far though, the best part about fall is visiting a pumpkin patch. I’ve rounded up some of the best pumpkin patches in Charlotte for you.
