There are so many wonderful reasons to enjoy living in Northeast Ohio. This time of year especially, as the holiday festivities kick into gear, there are many family-friendly and fun things to do that let you enjoy the outdoors and our beautiful region.

Things to do in Northeast Ohio this November

November 7 – So Long, Daylight Savings at Silver Creek Metro Park.

“Take advantage of the additional hour we get from turning back the clocks on an early morning hike with a naturalist. Enjoy fall foliage and observe signs of seasonal change as we learn why clocks around the world fall back in November and spring forward in March.”

November 13-14 – 20th Annual Nature Art Fest at the Oenslager Nature Center, a great place to find unique holiday gifts. 

“Join us for the 20th Annual Nature Art Fest, featuring unique items inspired by nature from professional artists! From paintings to stained glass, you’ll find unique holiday gifts for everyone on your list. Bring the family, and spend the day in one of the most beautiful parks of Medina County. All ages are welcome. No registration is required. Free.”

November 19 – Full Moon Hike & Fire at Liberty Park. Explore life after sunset in the forest and wet meadow, and discover ways we can help our wildlife neighbors that depend on the nocturnal world. 

“Join a naturalist as we hike around Liberty Park under the moonlit skies. We will discuss moon trivia and maybe even learn about some constellations. If the night air is brisk, we can warm up by the fire and enjoy some hot chocolate. Good for spree credit. “

November 25 – Cleveland Turkey Trot. Earn your turkey day meal by participating in the 1-mile fun walk (begins at 8:45 a.m.) or the 5-mile and 5K chip-timed runs (begin at 9:30 a.m.). All participants get a participation medal and shirt.

November 25  – 30th Annual Homerun for the Homeless fundraiser for the Gennesaret all-volunteer nonprofit provider of long-term housing for homeless two-parent families in Summit County. 

“Our mission is to provide interim housing, food, training and support services for those families who are earnestly seeking to improve their lives and living conditions. Our commitment is to do this without government funding or paid staff, but by uniting our community in the true spirit of service. Gennesaret does not promote any religious organization or practices; however, it was founded on Christian principles. Encompassing our mission is our unbending goal to treat those whom we serve with respect to enable them to retain their dignity in difficult and stressful times.”
