Do you have a serious hankering for fall and feel like it’s never going to actually get here? You’re not alone – we’re still facing high temperatures and humidity in Central Florida, which can put a damper on that autumn feeling. While we can’t do anything about the actual weather, our Orlando Toyota dealership CAN help you get more into the fall spirit (even if it means wearing an orange tank top while you do it). Check out some of the best places to find autumn adventures without leaving the city beautiful!
Long and Scott Farms
Part of fall fun is making your way through corn mazes, and believe it or not, you can find them right here in Central Florida! Long and Scott Farms is located in Mount Dora, and they boast a 7 acre corn maze for adults and families, as well as a 1 acre corn maze for kids! You can get lost in the winding pathways and play the game that they set up for you to make it even more challenging. Not only that, Long and Scott Farms offers other attractions that are perfect for fall family fun, too! You’ll find a playground for the kids, a jumping pillow (kind of like a huge, open bounce house), a 60-foot super slide, hay rides, and even fishing! Additionally, there’s a country market where you can find fresh produce and more, as well as Scott’s Country Cafe, where you can chow down on Zellwood Sweet Corn Chowder and a pulled pork sandwich, or cool off with a fresh-squeezed lemonade!
It’s a bit of a drive from Orlando proper – about an hour and a half – but trust us, it’s well worth it. They have an incredible corn maze for you to navigate through (it’s 5 acres), as well as a pumpkin patch where you can get your fill of pumpkins of all shapes and sizes. However, that’s not all Harvestmoon Farm has to offer! You’ll also find tons of games and activities for the whole family, including a hill slide, a cow train, a jumping pillow, a petting farm filled farm animals, a gem mine, corn ball, a barnyard playground, and pony rides! There are also food and drink vendors on site to keep you sated, and the kids will love games like the flashlight maze at night and Spookley the square pumpkin!
