Where to go

Franklin Park Conservatory

Botanical Gardens

During Halloween season we took the opportunity to go trick or treating at Franklin Park conservatory. Located 5 minutes away from downtown Columbus, and conveniently placed tucked in Franklin Park. This activity was breathtaking. Admission costing $14 for adults, $7 for children 3-7, and all children 2 and under are free. There is a nice cafe for food and drinks, and an outside park that the kids have me take them too weekly for free! Inside the conservatory you can find family events taking place (events listed on website), as well as magical place of green. As you walk through you will be able to learn about plants and flowers like you have never done before. Franklin Park Conservatory and Botanical Gardens offers enriching and memorable experiences inspired by art, culture and the botanical world. I felt like this activity was more calming then most because as I walked through I would just breathe in the fresh air and really take in all that nature has to offer. I would give this a child friendly rating of 9 out of 10. Can be pricey for large families, but the experience is worth a try.

Dill's Greenhouse

Fall Family Fun

Located in Groveport, Ohio about 20 minutes from downtown Columbus, this gem has everything fall. Costing $8 per child over 2 years of age. Price including all activities not limited to a hay ride, a small pumpkin, and face painting. Small farm animals were accessible and friendly, and the staff was sweet and accommodating. We begin by a countless number of corn mazes, roasting s'mores and hot dogs in a fire pit, tubing, and of course my favorite, the sensory pit filled with dry corn!! I was shocked by the amount of things to do, and thought it would not end. I even commented to my mother who joined, are you sure we paid for all of this. It is totally worth it! Did I mention a snack stand with very cheap options such as water, juice boxes, and popcorn as well as those super simple s'more and hot dog kits for only $1! If you're looking for something not so crowded to fulfill your fall needs, try out this place. You can even enjoy the inside housing some great greenery as well. Open weekdays per reservations, limited Friday's and all day during the weekend, check it out! I give this activity a 10 0ut of 10. Maybe it was the beautiful weather that accompanied us, but I say it was perfect!
