Awesome Fall Destinations in Ohio for Conversion Van Owners
Ohio in the fall is definitely a site to behold. When the trees in the Buckeye state decide it’s time to put on their fall colors, it’s usually a sign fall festivals and other seasonal events are about to begin. Lets face it. There is no better way to hit the Buckeye than in a conversion van either. Perfect for weekend road trips, conversion vans offer more space to bring along friends and family.
So what are some of Ohio’s hotspots to check out this Fall season?
Fall Foliage Trains
At the Hocking Valley Scenic Railway visitors can take a 22 mile train ride thru the Appalachian foothills passing historic company towns, a canal lock, and of course see all the colorful fall foliage along the way. Step back in time at Robbins Crossing where visitors have a chance to experience the rich history of Appalachia. Regular train fare applies and shopping can be done at the Gift Shop and Train Store.
Ohio Renaissance Festival
Beginning at the end of August and running until mid October, Ohio’s Renaissance Festival is a fall event not to be missed. Located in Ohio’s Warren County, near the township of Lebanon, 30 empty acres are transformed into a 16th century English village. Complete with jousting, sword fights, turkey legs, and mead visitors can bow before a king, and browse through the period shops. It is well worth the drive.
Harvest Moon Corn Maze and Pumpkin Patch
During September and October, the South western Ohio farm invites everyone to come out and visit their 22 acre corn maze. This working family owned farm, located in Liberty, Ohio, opens their gates for visitors to enjoy not only the impressive maze but also hay rides, picnics, and their own barnyard animals.
Haunted Hayride and Black Bog
Fall also means Halloween, and a trip to Lebanon, Ohio and the 30 minute hayride through 50 acres of gorgeous, natural woodlands. After touring the spooky trails, sit down by the campfire for chilling ghost stories and the concession stand. Find the perfect pumpkin to carve, and if you are feeling brave enough, take a tour of the Black Bog.
Zoar Village’s Lantern Tours of the Ghosts
In Zoar, visitors can take a guided ghost tour. Walk through the historic communal village, listening to tales of the German Separatists who settled here. Stay overnight and see the fall colors in the morning light. The village is open September thru October by reservation only.
These are just a few of the great fall activities going on in Ohio. Plan a weekend or a day trip and see the beauty of Ohio in the fall.
