Here are some of the best places to take in the vibrant colors of fall:

  • Ashtabula County's Covered Bridge Festival (northeast; Oct. 10-11)

If you can't make it to any of those parks, you can always take a scenic drive around.  To find an area to drive around you, click this link.

The Ohio Department of Natural Resources says the peak time to see fall foliage in southern Ohio is late October. If you plan heading up north, the peak time is around the second weak of October and if you're going to central Ohio, it's recommended you go around the third week.
