Mazes, wagons, pumpkins, oh my! What better way to take in the changing season than with a Little Miami bike ride? Or even taking a shot at archery? The outdoorsy Cincinnatian will surely find a way to welcome in the cooling weather and crispy leaves through these fall adventures:
1. Adventure AcresAdventure Acres offers four mazes—totaling 8.5 miles—and more than 62 acres of maze land, making their mazes the largest in Ohio.

Adults (13+): $9.75, Seniors (65+): $7.75, Kids (5-12): $6.75, free for ages 4 and under. General admission includes access to all four corn mazes, one ride on the cow train, entrance to the barnyard animal area, access to the kid's play area, and more. Thru Nov. 4, http://adventureacres.com/
2. Irons’ Fruit Farm
Visitors to Irons’ Fruit Farm in Lebanon can take a hayride out to their pick-your-own pumpkin patch or venture on foot out to the raspberry patch (watch for thorns!).

Pay for your picked goods by the pound, corn maze admission is $5 ages 5-12 and $7 for age 13+. http://ironsfruitfarm.com/
