Ohio Amish Country Experiences Volume #2 Issue #10 - Where Has Fall Gone?
October 30, 2010
Ohio Amish Country Experiences
and Ohio Amish Country Marketing
Dear Ohio Amish Country Enthusiast,
There are two "problems" with fall here in Northeast Ohio. The first is that it is far too short lived. The second is that it ushers in - winter.
In late summer and early fall, the colors start to sneak up on you. Then, all of a sudden, all the trees and underbrush are ablaze with vivid, vibrant colors. The beauty can hardly be described.
You blink and the next thing you know - most of the leaves are on the ground being swept, swirled and buffeted by the wind. Blink again and the sky presents ominous, foreboding clouds announcing the imminence of winter!
This year, there didn't seem to be quite as much of the bright red and burgundy foliage as other years. However, the yellow, orange and gold colors seemed exceptionally brilliant, especially when accented by the sun against a crisp blue sky.
The weather was a bit of a mixed bag - extreme temperature swings and periods of intense rain with harsh winds followed by beautifully sunny, warm and mild days.
Not sure if we actually had an old-fashioned, Indian summer or not, but the temperatures of late have been basically warm and mild considering it's the end of October, beginning of November.
The Ohio Swiss Festival in Sugarcreek, Ohio, Charm Days in Charm, Ohio and the Covered Bridge Festival in Ashtabula County, along with other fall events, were quite successful and well attended this year.
Now, attention is being focused on finishing the harvest, preparing for Thanksgiving and getting ready for winter. Speaking of Thanksgiving, we are aware of one place that will be open on Thanksgiving Day.
If you'd like to spend Thanksgiving in Ohio Amish Country - what better place to gather with friends and family? Consider going to the Amish Door Village in Wilmot, Ohio. They have a beautiful inn, and their restaurant will be featuring a Thanksgiving Day special.

The Amish Door Village
A favorite destination of ours in Stark County is tucked into the southwest corner of the county just before you enter Holmes County.
It is the Amish Door Village and is located at 1210 Winesburg Street on US 62 in Wilmot, Ohio.
They boast a luxurious 52 room inn with beautiful country views, fitness room, indoor pool & hot tub, conference room and complimentary continental breakfast.
Family owned and operated by the Miller family since 1977, their restaurant features an award winning restaurant with traditional and Amish kitchen cooking and a choice of menu or family-style dining.
They have wholesome entertainment, Dinner Theaters, Gospel Dinner Concerts, Comedy Dinner Shows, Mystery Dinner Theaters and more.
They also have a bakery on site serving up wonderful Amish-style baked goods.
The shops at The Amish Door include the Gallery with framed art, jewelry, scrapbooking and gifts. The Country Loft features country gifts, accessories and home décor.
The Wooden Toy Shop sells toys, games, books, dolls and much more.
Grandma's Pantry and Ice Cream Parlor offers a wide selection of bulk foods, mixes, spices, kitchen accessories and hand-dipped ice cream.

Great Fall Photos!
Since not everyone has a chance to visit Ohio Amish Country in the Fall, we thought our "tip of the month" could be your "trip of the month."
So we decided to share a few of our own photos of beautiful Northeast Ohio in the fall. We don't claim to be professional photographers but we hope that you'll "catch our vision" of Ohio Amish Country.
Maybe you'll like it well enough to determine that next year you will make that trip and come see the beauty while you can. Don't forget to get your map before you come!
