There are so many things to love about Fall in Ohio. From fall festivals to cooler weather and colorful forests, autumn is one of the best times of year to be in Ohio!
Of course, Starbucks rolls out their Pumpkin Spice Latte in late August and that opens the door for all kinds of fall-flavored treats.
Given that fall is also traditionally the harvest season in the Midwest, it’s only fitting that we have so many fall treats in Ohio to look forward to at the end of summer.
