Between Cleveland’s beautiful autumn leaves, its cool October climate, and its rich history and abundance of spooky attractions, it’s practically the perfect city for celebrating the fall season. Follow this list of things you should do in Cleveland this fall to enjoy this time of year to the maximum.
Spend the Night at the Renaissance Hotel
The Renaissance Hotel is not only a beautiful historic landmark in downtown Cleveland – it’s also popular for its creepy factor. Built on the site of Cleveland’s first hotel, the site is imbued with the city’s history. If you dare, book a room on the fourth floor. That’s where the staff says most of the haunted happenings take place. Don’t be shocked if you see lights and faucets turning on and off on their own!
Visit the Patterson Fruit Farm Fun Fest
From September 15th to October 28th, you can pack a lunch and bring your family along for fun fall activities at Patterson Fruit Farm. Hay stacks, treehouses, a corn maze, and a 50-foot slide await. On weekend afternoons, you can take a pony ride for $4. Admission price to the Fun Fest is $5 per person on weekdays and $8 on weekends. Children 2 years or younger are admitted for free.
Enjoy Ohio State Parks Fall Events
Take an hour or two to walk around Northeast Ohio’s state parks and take in the fall foliage, or even pitch a tent and spend the night at any one of the beautiful State Park campgrounds. Visit the Ohio State Parks website to learn more about fall activities like trick-or-treating, hayrides, pumpkin carving, and more.
