Fall Bucket List: 55 Things To Do In The Buckeye State

Everyone who is anyone knows that Columbus is at its best in the fall. The air is crisp, the cider is warm, and the Buckeyes are (hopefully) winning.

There is so much to do and see around Central Ohio in the fall. We’ve created this Ultimate Fall Bucket list so that visitors and residents alike can fully experience all of the wonderful things that Columbus and the surrounding areas have to offer.

As you make your way through the list, be sure to take the opportunity to snap a few photos. If you do, you can participate in our Best Fall Photo contest!

1.) Snap a sweet Instagram of you achieving one of the bucket list items.
2.) Post it, tag @columbusnavigator and add #NavOHFall and the category for which you’re submitting: #artsandentertainment, #scienceandnature, #fallbasics, #animals, #foodanddrink, and #sports.
3.) We will collect, share, and post your awesome photos throughout the fall season, from now until November 12, 2017.
4.) The Navigator team will then select our favorite 25 photos. Those photos will be posted on Columbus Navigator for fans and friends to like. “The Best Ohio Fall Instagram of 2017” will be the photo that receives the most likes.
5.) The Instagrammer that comes out on top will win an awesome prize. View Terms & Conditions here.
