I will start by saying I’m not one of those girls who says that her favorite season is fall. I’ve mentioned this before – but I do not look forward to wearing scarves, sweaters or the leaves falling. That being said – I do love spending a weekend outdoors in the CLE and fall just happens to be a pretty fabulous season to do so. Here are some highlights from our awesome weekend:
We started Friday with an Art Walk through Tremont. After a delicious dinner at Bac we scoped out some artwork (of course stopping at our favorite gallery, Paul Duda) before wine at Press with Dave and Anson.
We went all the way out to Burton, Ohio to ride on a trailer and enjoy the fall colors.
While we were there we checked out the Apple Butter Festival!
And I tried to keep my cool as we walked around and saw SO many Amish people.
Checking out the fall foliage and checking out the farmland out east.
We also stumbled upon Oxtoberfest! Meaning we shared a roasted ox sandwich. (sorry, not pictured)
We stopped by Patterson’s Fruit Farm to check out the pumpkins and fall baked goods.
And go for a nice fall hike.
And pick some apples!
We made it back to Cleveland in time to enjoy a few Guiness and Pumpkings at our favorite bar, Parnell’s Pub, and watch the BC game (they lost against Clemson). Then it was time for patio drinks and a nice dinner.
Oh yeah, and my legs are feeling great after last weekend’s half marathon (recap, here) so I enjoyed three runs this weekend – 2 outside and 1 inside while watching the Pilot of Gossip Girl! Three runs in three days makes me a happy girl :)
Hopefully you had an awesome fall weekend as well!
Some questions for you: (answer in the comments!)
- Where you like, when does patio season typically end? Or is it year-round?
- Have you ever tried ox?
- Have you ever seen Amish people?
- Do you have a favorite local bar near you?
- If you like pumpkin beer, what’s your favorite? Pumpking by far!
- If you run, do you prefer outdoor or indoor running?
