Just down the road…

   Taking in the new fall season has definitely been easy…these past few days have been beautiful. As I drove along some of our back roads today I noticed some crimson leaves and realized autumn adventures for me and my family were “just down the road” – literally!

Dean Rd. along Back Roads and Beaches Route

   It seemed almost every country road I peered down was preparing its own taste of fall. Whether it was a store front with specials, a field transforming into an autumn festival or hay getting stacked and made ready for hayrides. Farmers markets with stands being stocked with fresh produce.

 Wagons being hitched to take families and friends out in the orchards and patches to pick their own apples and pumpkins. There are corn mazes and haunted places for all ages and levels of ghoulishness!Cyclists out on the Back Roads and Beaches route and families scattered through the Lorain County Metro Parks many Reservations.

 Clambakes and crisp nights by a fire with a glass of wine at a local winery. Open houses at our charming B&B’s! So much to see and do in north central Ohio, no matter which way you turn!

Celebrating fall just down the road sounds pretty good to me… I think I will settle right in!
