You may not "be-leaf" it, but fall has officially arrived in Dublin, Ohio. With fall comes haunted houses, pumpkin patches and a plethora of other fall activities. With so much to do it can be hard to decide what to add to your perfect fall itinerary. So we asked the local experts to help us out. Here are their picks for the perfect fall weekend in Dublin.
First: Get treated.
Get into the merry and not-so-scary spirit right here, in Dublin! Dublin's annual Spooktacular is the place to be for all the treats. Dawn your Halloween best for the Trunk or Treat Trail and document the moment with Squier Photography. The fun doesn't end there, make sure to check out the professional pumpkin carver, meet some furry friends at the petting zoo and much more!
Goblins and ghosts are taking over Coffman Park for this two-day event, Oct. 13-14.
Next: Grab a Casual Bite.
After all the spooky fun, it's time to grab a bite to eat. Make your way over to 101 Beer Kitchen and indulge in some pub fare. Get into the fall spirit(s) with a festive brew such as Blueberry Wheat or warm up with a cozy fall dish. You can't go wrong with their Butternut Squash Soup with spicy pumpkin seeds and creme fraiche. And no need to put on your Sunday best, 101 Beer Kitchen likes to keep it casual.
Then: Shop for Cozy Home Decor.
Now that you're feeling the spirit of the season, it's time to create the space to match. Your next stop is The Morgan House, a historic log cabin that has been transformed into the ultimate seasonal stop. Step into this 18,000-square-foot, four-floor gift shop and find everything you need to turn your space into a cozy fall escape.
Time for a Pumpkin Flavored Treat.
Hope you haven't shopped till you dropped because it's time to grab an autumnal treat and nothing screams fall more than pumpkin spice! Lucky for you, Johnson's Real Ice Cream is scooping up pumpkin spice ice cream to satisfy your sweet tooth. Try it on a classic cone or in-between two snickerdoodle cookies.
Finally: End Your Weekend with a Thrill.
Time for one last adventure before hitting the road. Experience fall color like never before while flying through the treetops at ZipZone Outdoor Adventures. Try gliding through the trees on a canopy tour or test your endurance on one of the 60 obstacles at the Adventure Park. Have a little one? Bring them along to experience the Kids Park.
