Sunflower fields are all-the-rage and offer a beautiful canvas for your next Insta profile pic. You can find a few different fields throughout the state like Maria’s Field of Hope in Avon (or Cedar Point), Gorman Heritage Farms in Evendale near Cincinnati and The Black Barn in Lebanon.

Frame your photo with one of Ohio’s many covered bridges! Recently, these charming overpasses have become a unique backdrop for family portraits and even fall engagement pictures. Take a drive and check out ones like Buck Run Road Bridge and Pottersburg Covered Bridge in Union County or State Road Covered Bridge in Ashtabula County.
Take part in – and photos of – one of the most iconic parts of fall. Snap a photo while you’re walking the patch, holding up your find or pick up some small decorative gourds. Stop by spots like Morton Pumpkin Patch Farm Market in Circleville, Country Lane Tree Farm in Genoa and Pheasantview Family Farm in Fredericktown.

Talk about a bird’s-eye-view! Observation towers provide breathtaking views for every fall color lover and autumn adventurers can climb all the way to the top of these structures for an elevated insta-worthy shot. Take in the scenery on the Murch Canopy Walk and Kalberer Emergent Tower at The Holden Arboretum in Kirtland, the Observation Tower at The Dawes Arboretum in Newark or the viewing tower at Serpent Mound in Peebles.
Venture around the vines of Ohio’s wine country. Whether you’re walking the vineyards or sitting back, taking a sip – you’ll find breathtaking views all around. Stop by wineries like Laurentia Vineyard & Winery in Madison, South River Winery in Geneva or Gervasi Vineyard in Canton.
Get out and about and see the scenic scenes of Ohio. Take in the view atop Mt. Jeez in Perrysville, explore Nelson-Kennedy Ledges State Park in Portage County or Clifton Gorge State Nature Preserve in Yellow Springs.
Take a walk among the trees as the leaves change color and air gets crisper. Go for the classic shot in Oak Openings at Toledo MetroParks, Walnut Woods MetroPark in Groveport or Wayne National Forest in the Appalachian region of Ohio.
There you have it! Get outside and enjoy fall in Ohio!
