A quick day trip from Cincinnati is Ohio’s Scarecrow Capital, where you can find as many scarecrows as you’d ever want to see.
Starting Oct. 1, just two hours from the city in Fairfield County, you can find the annual Trail of Scarecrows — either an adorable or a haunting event, depending on how you feel about anthropomorphic hay.
"Businesses, groups, organizations and residents created scarecrows that are on display all over town," per the Visit Fairfield County website.
There will be hundreds of scarecrows around the county. Drive around the 14 participating communities looking for the best stuffed statue around and vote on your favorite.
Visit Fairfield County suggests downloading their app to track the scarecrows that you have discovered and the ones you still want to see.
Throughout the trail, you can see the countryside and get to view some of the changing fall foliage. If you want to get out of the car, there are many places a short drive away to see that beautiful seasonal spectacle.
