Autumn has arrived in Cincinnati and the temperatures begin to cool down, leaves change colors, and we all enjoy seasonal activities. Here are a few of our favorite activities around Cincinnati:
- Parks – City and County: The first recommendation is to enjoy time outdoors in some of Cincinnati’s parks and Hamilton County’s parks which are some of the best in the country!
- Irons Fruit Farm Corn Maze: Irons Fruit Farm is located in Lebanon, OH just about 40 minutes northeast of downtown Cincinnati. Whether you’re on a date, a group hangout, or looking for something for the entire family, the corn maze is a great activity. Each year is a unique design spanning a 12-acre cornfield. They also have a pumpkin patch, hayrides, and the best fresh apple fritters you’ve ever had!
- Sports: Baseball season may be winding down, but football is getting started whether you like pro, collegiate, or high school there is plenty of football going on in Cincinnati!
- HallZOOween: Cincinnati’s Zoo and Botanical Garden offers its own Halloween festivities that are free with zoo admission. This one is great for families from 12 pm – 5 pm October 16-17th, 23rd-24th, and 30th-31st.
- Fall Festivals: Speaking of kid-friendly, fall festivals are a great way to spend time outdoors and enjoy the season. In Loveland, you can visit Fall on the Farm at Blooms and Berries Farm Market, in Hamilton Fall Family Fun Weekends at Brown’s Family Market, in Newtown Fall Pumpkin Festival at Burger Farm, in Ross Burwinkel Farms, in Lebanon Country Applefest, in Dry Ridge, KY Fall Festival at Country Pumpkins, in Burlington, KY Fall Fest at Kinman Farms, in Camp Springs, KY Neltner’s Farm Fall Festival, Liberty Township Fall Festival at Niederman Family Farm, and in Milford Shaw’s Pumpkin Times.
- Haunted Tours: Stories of death and deceit from Cincinnati, Newport, and Covington in the past. American Legacy Tours offers this Halloween-themed tour of your city!
- Haunted Houses: Lots of haunted houses are available throughout Cincinnati. These might be fun with friends or even on a date, but probably best to leave the kids at home. You can find one near you from Brimstone Haunt, The Dent Schoolhouse, King’s Island’s Halloween Haunt, Haunted Scream Park, Mt. Healthy Haunted Hall, Nightmare Manor – Middletown, Terror Town – Williamsburg, Twisted Trails – Wilmington, USS Nightmare, and Wilmington Haunted Hollow Ride.
