Fall in Miami: 5 Ways to Enjoy the Season


One thing is for sure… we LOVE fall in Miami! Even though we have to enjoy the cool temps and colorful leaves from a distance, there’s a lot of fall fun to be had right here in South Florida.

But don’t just take our word for it! Here’s what a few of our contributors had to say about some of their favorite ways to enjoy fall in Miami.

Fall Vibes in Coral Gables

Fall in Miami is here! Which means: nothing, to be honest. In Miami, we pretty much have summer all year round. The change of seasons is just a date on the calendar here. With sunny temperatures in the 80s, it’s tough to get into the fall vibe! It’s too hot for cozy sweaters and you certainly won’t find any leaves on the ground(unless palm tree leaves count)! However, there is one thing that always gets me into the fall mood: the beautiful decorations on Giralda and Miracle Mile! Each time I stroll around these areas, I immediately get in the mood for pumpkin pies and Halloween. Also, they are great photo ops for you and your family! If you’re like me and avoid crowded pumpkin patches, do yourself a favor and have some delicious brunch in the Gables and go for a stroll after to enjoy the beautiful autumn decorations.

Favorite Local Spots

My family loves spending time at the pumpkin patches and farms around town. While the weather is still pretty hot, the air cools down in the evening usually around early November. This makes for a great opportunity to bust out the fall wear and take awesome autumn pictures of the kiddos! 

Here is a list of our favorite spots in the fall:

The Berry Farm
Tinez Farm
FarmHouse Miami

A few we want to try this year:

Heritage Market

A Day at the Beach

There is so much to love about Miami.  The music, the ocean, the diversity–but the number one reason people visit year-round is our weather.  

Now here in Miami, we don’t have normal fall weather, which some years can get a little old. But for the most part, when the water temperature drops and the sun isn’t blazing, it’s fall time in Miami.  

My favorite thing to do in Miami in the fall is head to the beach! The temperature of the water is just right and the heat is not hot enough for a tan but not so hot that I feel like I’m roasting. Most of the summer visitors have come and gone and there are fewer crowds as well! My kids love the beach in the fall and even winter in Miami! Try it out take a dip!

Fall Festival & Pumpkin Patch

Miami Mom Collective contributors at Tinez Farms

If you’re looking for a family-friendly day full of fall fun, make sure to visit Tinez Farm‘s 2nd Annual Fall Festival & Pumpkin Patch! Last year, our Miami Mom Collective team had a blast at their 1st Annual Fall Festival & Pumpkin Patch.

Tickets include access to their animal barnyard, pumpkin patch, zipline, bounce house, wooden play structures, flower slide, and photo ops. Pony rides, cow barrel train rides, and the friendly fire experience are sold separately. I love that there is a lot of shade at the farm making this Miami heat much more enjoyable. This year the festival runs from September 11th thru November 27th, 2022. Make sure to buy your tickets online for discounted prices and watch out for special events such as the Harvest & Treats event for Halloween, as well as our Hanging With Heroes event on September 29th & 30th.

Art Basel

Though technically towards the end of fall, it’s best to start preparations early for the best Miami event of the year: Art Basel. This year Art Basel takes place at the Miami Beach Convention Center on Thursday, December 1st through Saturday, December 3rd with special events for children starting Tuesday, November 29. It is the leading platform for emerging and established artists alike, and there are endless experiences for the entire family. Children 12 and under are free with an adult ticket and have their own special section, Art Kids, where they can let their inner Picasso run wild. Besides the main show, there are countless other galleries that participate in the week.
