Fall Foliage Driving Tours Northeast Ohio

According the the Fall Color Report published by the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) Northeast Ohio should be seeing peak fall color conditions in early October.

I love this time of year and truly enjoy watching the leaves turn to the beautiful orange, red, yellow and gold colors. It’s a great time to get outdoor and enjoy the beauty of nature. And one way to do that is to head out for a Fall Foliage Driving Tour.

    We drove to GUILFORD LAKE (State Park) and we ENJOYED not only the fantastic ride but we also LOVED THE LAKE, THE PARK and the restaurant Mark’s Landing. It was the second time for us and as we traveled through the neighborhoods we both thought “I could retire here” and my hubby has lived All Over The World…so that is a huge compliment. Can’t wait to make our third trip there soon…probably for winter :)
