Ohio Fall Getaways
These Ohio fall getaways are the perfect way to celebrate the season!
Beautiful destinations often make for the most romantic destinations and the Hocking Hills region of Ohio is definitely one of the most beautiful areas of the state. Besides the natural beauty found in the forests of Hocking Hills, charming inns and bed-and-breakfasts are found throughout the area, making it one of my favorite Ohio fall getaways. At Hocking Hills State Park, you can explore miles of trails with secret caves and breathtaking landscapes. While hiking is the main activity, there are plenty of fun Hocking Hills fall activities to explore during your getaway. After a day exploring the natural beauty of Hocking Hills, retreat to one of these cozy inns or cabins, many of which also offer romantic dining options on-site.
A Sandusky, Ohio romantic getaway is a great idea for couples looking for a fall weekend getaway in Ohio. While indoor waterparks may seem more like a family destination, a couples massage at Spa Kalahari can really set the tone for your romantic weekend. On-site fine dining options await after your spa day. If you prefer to enjoy the outdoors, there are several beautiful nature preserves in and around Sandusky. Even though Sandusky is a lake town, there’s still lots of fun things to do in the fall.
