Fun Fall Activities to Enjoy in Ohio This Year

If you had an unstimulating summer, no need to fret; autumn has arrived! With sweater weather in full effect, Oberer Homes is here to help you and your family start planning your autumn adventures. We’ve created this guide for our friends and neighbors who live in communities near Dayton and the Miami Valley. So much awaits, you won’t even have to leave our great state — Ohio offers everything from football games to nature excursions, breweries, Halloween thrills, and more.

The first day of your unforgettable fall begins today! Below are some autumn musts you’ll find in our neck of the woods…

A Trip to a Fall Farmer’s Market

At your local market, you’ll find plentiful piles of pumpkins, squashes, and gourds, along with picture-perfect moments to capture for your scrapbook. If you’re someone who truly loves to experience the season, nowhere feels like fall quite like an autumn-centric market. Go grab some cider, donuts, and peruse the pumpkin patch.

The best thing about pumpkins? There’s so much you can do with them! You can bake seasonal treats or get crafty and decorate with them. We recommend picking up enough pumpkins so you can do all of it!

Quality Time in the Great Outdoors

A refreshing breath of crisp, cool autumn air is spectacular. And it’s even better when you’re active and exploring the beautiful natural sights surrounding you. Ohio is also fortunate to see some of the most fantastic fall foliage in our country. Whether you want to hike, bike, or make an overnight camping trip — make it a point to experience it firsthand by making time for excursions before the leaves lose their vibrancy!

Day Trips:

  • John Bryan State Park
  • Twin Creek MetroPark
  • Carriage Hill MetroPark


  • Hocking Hills State Park
  • Maumee Bay State Park
  • Mohican State Park

Get Goosebumps

Fear is an essential part of fall. Some thrive off of the season’s spooky energy; others get too squeamish. This year, take part in the classic Halloween-time ritual of visiting one of Ohio’s local haunts.

A Cozy Staycation

Are you having difficulty achieving a work-life balance? Do you feel like you need to recharge? You’re likely in need of a staycation! Take time off and enjoy quality time with your family. Make your staycation seasonal by having a horror film festival, baking pumpkin bread, and turning your home into an autumn oasis.

Brewery Bounce

Living in the Miami Valley, we can enjoy our many local brew-spots while also having easy access to downtown Dayton breweries. Take a day or night (or both) and enjoy flights and pints of hoppy brews with fall flavors.

Cinema Under the Stars

Just because you might not be able to get to the movie theater doesn’t mean you have to miss out on recent releases or skip seeing a classic! Experience the excitement of big-screen cinema at the drive-in by getting your hoodies, blankets, and snacks ready, packing up the family and the car, and heading to your closest drive-in for a feature film.

Check a Home Project Off Your List

You can have fun and still get things done! Now is as good of a time as any to take care of a project you just haven’t gotten around to tackling…yet. Your home is an investment — making regular improvements boosts its value and improves your quality of life as a homeowner.
