City Slicker: Best Pumpkin Patches

//PICTURED ABOVE: The different pumpkin patches in the Dallas area.

With fall beginning, visiting pumpkin patches serves as one of the most popular autumn activities. Finding a location to take artsy autumnal photos, choosing the perfect pumpkin or going on a fun family outing can be hard. While there are houses made from pumpkins at the Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Gardens, and two floors of fall decorations to buy with a pumpkin at Jackson’s Home and Garden, sometimes it is hard to choose which pumpkin patch to visit. With dozens of places to look for the perfect pumpkins in the Dallas area, here is The Fourcast’s take on the best ones!
