Everybody gets the appeal of moving to Northeastern Florida for the beautiful beaches, low taxes, and great schools. Before calling a realtor in Jacksonville, however, they pause and consider if they really want to move to a place that has a reputation for having only one season.
But you don’t need to stay in the Northeast USA to achieve all your autumnal feelings. Instead, you can find them in Jacksonville and the surrounding area. Autumnal feelings? In Northeastern Florida? Really?
Yes! Here are our top 5 favorite things about the fall season in Northeastern Florida. These will get you online now to find the best realtors in Jacksonville.
1. The Best Autumnal Outdoor Activities
There is nothing like getting outdoors to feel the clean crisp air and see beautiful blue skies. Northeastern Florida has many opportunities for outdoor fun for the entire family. Like the many family-owned farms in and around Jacksonville that boast a variety of harvest activities, corn mazes, and labyrinths.
Everyone’s inner child emerges when biking in more pleasant weather. Visit Fort Clinch, where bikers may take advantage of a six-mile track under a canopy of trees that winds through the park. The newest Amelia Island Trail, which connects Crane Island to the beach, or the Amelia Island Trails, which connects Peters Point Beachfront Park to Amelia Island State Park, are also fantastic ways to get close to nature in the fall.
2. Pumpkin Patches All Around Northeastern Florida
If you haven’t been pumpkin picking, is it even fall? After September, pumpkin patches pop up all over St. Johns County. Additionally, every year, several neighborhood churches, including Christ United Methodist Church in Neptune Beach and Isle of Faith on San Pablo Road, offer pick-your-own pumpkin patches.
3. Fantastic Fall Festivals
There are many amazing fall festivals in the region, but the Sykes and Cooper Farms Harvest Festival is one of the best. The festival is held every year in St. Augustine and is complete with its own pumpkin patch, cow train rides, hayrides, and farm animals. It is open Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays every week in October.
For a more adult festival, look no further than the Ponte Vedra Wine Festival. This festival is hosted by the Ponte Vedra Croquet Club and invites guests to come taste wines from all around the world. The festival runs throughout the fall and boasts international cuisine, live music, and the chance to learn about quality wines from many nations.
4. Halloween Events for All Ages
Nowhere else does Halloween activities like the region in and around Jacksonville. Every weekend from late September to late October, there are dozens of options to pick from.
Our favorites include the Spooktacular event at Jacksonville Zoo, which offers a variety of kid-friendly activities including crafts, face painting, and spooky decorations. And for those more inclined toward the super scary, we recommend the award-winning, bone-chilling Ghost Tours of St. Augustine.
5. Fall Colors, Blue Skies, and Golden Red Sunsets
There is no time so magical as fall in Jacksonville, St. Augustine, and Amelia Island. They have the best fall colors and the most majestic sunrises and sunsets. Especially if you catch the sun rising over the ocean, setting on the marsh, or dancing across the Amelia River. And just under an hour from Jacksonville is rural Lake City, where you can take in all the fall foliage and fool friends up north with the scenery.
