Tree Farms in and around Pensacola, Florida

When do you put up your Christmas tree?  Do you put up a fake tree or a real tree?  Does your family head out to a Christmas tree farm to cut down your own?

Here are a few U-pick Christmas tree farms in our surrounding area.  Even if you already have a tree or put up a fake tree, a visit to the farm can be fun for the family.  If there are any farms to add to the list or if any of these are no longer operating, please let us know!  As always, make sure to call ahead before you go.

Fish River Trees – Located in Summerdale, AL; This is the only farm on the list that we have visited.  We had such a great time and we didn’t even go to pick out a tree!  There is a ride around the farm, hot chocolate to purchase, Santa and reindeer to visit.

Whispering Pines Christmas Tree Farm – Located north of Milton; They have staff to help you with your tree purchase.

Country Pine Christmas Tree Farm – Located near Bratt; Enjoy the pond, free cookies and candy canes for the kids, and run around while looking for your tree.

The Christmas Tree Forest – Located in Pensacola; They have both choose and cut and potted trees.

Summer Road Trip Celebration – Jacksonville, Florida

All summer, while we continue to showcase all the great things going on around Pensacola we will also be sharing our favorite (and yours too!) road trips.  For Mystery Photo Monday, I asked if you knew where this fountain was:

This particular fountain is in Jacksonville, Florida.  We have friends in Jacksonville so we make the drive over there once or twice a year.  It is about 6 hours away so we find the trip is best made when we can take a Friday or Monday off but we have made the trip on a regular weekend.  Here are our favorite family picks for Jacksonville:

Stop by Trekaroo Spotlight Thursday to see where other people are traveling this week.
