Are you ready to escape the chaos and plan a fall retreat from life? Peak fall foliage in Ohio is mid-October, and Logan County’s rolling hills are beautiful this time of year. This is a perfect time to travel. There is so much to do!
A must for your activities list is to zip through the Markin Farms Zipline Adventures. I suggest scheduling your zip for the sunset tour – a great thing to do with your sweetheart! What fun!
If you like the more spooky side of October, plan your visit for the weekend of October 22 & 23 to catch Ghosts & Goblins: Literature to Scare and Delight, a traditional event at The Piatt Castles. The Logan County History Center also has a Halloween Kidsfest for kids ages 4-12 on the same weekend.
For another fun family event, I would recommend the scenic drive to Marmon Valley Farm for their Harvest Roundup. Your kids will love the pony rides and hay ride, along with visiting farm animals and playing in the hay tunnels.
Since there are just too many things to do in one day, you will want to start your weekend at Bobbi’s Bungalow. Check into the Bungalow on Friday afternoon, order pizza delivery from one of the local pizzerias, and then saunter up the brick sidewalks of the village of West Liberty to the Ice Cream Parlor for their seasonal Pumpkin ice cream. Dream sweet dreams in the luxurious linens on pillow top beds, and start your morning with a fresh, hot cup of coffee or English Breakfast tea on the from porch swing. Then it is time to go exploring!
Make a long weekend trip to West Liberty for your fall getaway. The craziness of the Christmas season is just around the corner, so plan for your retreat today.
Special Note: Saturday, October 15th is the annual Adriel Quilt Auction and the West Liberty Home Tour. I would encourage you to visit us this weekend! Bobbi’s Bungalow will be on the tour, so if you are looking for a day trip, this would be a great weekend as well. The house is not available for rent on Friday night in preparation of the tour, but it is currently available for a late Saturday check in. Give me a call to book your stay today!
