If the universe (weather, time, work commitments etc.) have kept you from getting your family into Ohio’s beautiful outdoor habitats it isn’t too late. The real fall weather is still weeks away and Ohio has got plenty to offer as far as locations and activities.
Check the Ohio State Park website: http://parks.ohiodnr.gov/ for locations and activities near you. Many of these parks don’t close until late October. And even though the kids are back in school there is still time to get everyone out and active for a weekend.
Additionally, resources like Only In Ohio and Ohio.org provide information on all kinds of small, local and free or inexpensive events and interesting locations all over the state.
Furthermore, you can check your county, city or township webpage for local activities, parks, and hiking trails. In northeast Ohio the Summit Metro Parks as begun its well-known Fall Hiking Spree program and the Cuyahoga Conservancy for the Cuyahoga National Parks offers lots of family friendly fun.
