No one does fall like Warren County. Southwest Ohio's distinct autumn season brings with it every delightful harvest-season scene you can imagine. Colored leaves fall on sunny days with just enough of a chill to drive you inside by sundown. You and yours lounge comfortably by the season's first fireplace blaze, cider in hand after a day spent at the farm picking Ohio apples and selecting perfect carving pumpkins. Warren County offers a wealth of year-round attractions, seasonal festivals, and fall activities for your autumn vacation.
Fall in Historic Waynesville
Explore historic Ohio in Warren County's Waynesville, called the "antiques capital of the Midwest." Seek treasures from bygone days as you wander through 18th-century Victorian homes-turned-shops.

In October, don't miss the Ohio Sauerkraut Festival, which attracts more than 400,000 visitors each autumn. Throughout the fall, spook yourself with a Ghostly Walking Tour - Waynesville is also called "the most haunted town in Ohio."
