Drive-Yourself Adventure

Country Autumn Tour

In 1999, three Ohio business women got together and planned a “Drive-Yourself Adventure” that would bring people to the country after a very long winter. These shops were Country Tradition, Amish House and The Apple Barrel. Because of their successful event, the women decided to add more vendors to help promote small country shops, and formed the Country Tour Group.


During the following years, many vendors have both joined and retired from the Country Tour Group. Today, there are a great variety of shops located in the countryside and small towns of Lorain, Ashland, Medina, and Huron Counties. They include antiques, unique gift shops, honey products, greenhouses, farm & feed store, restaurant, elk farm, pumpkins, and original art work.
*Please note that not all businesses participate in each tour. Your flyer will have the current participants for each tour.

April was the month decided on for the spring Bag Lady Tour. This worked out great. People had a need to get out into the spring air when the tulips, daffodils, and trees were in full bloom.

October was the month decided on for the Autumn Country Tour because of the beautiful fall weather and colors of the trees.
