The Hidden Beaches Road Trip That Will Show You Ohio Like Never Before

From tiny beaches tucked away in little-known water parks to beaches hiding behind roller coasters, the following trip features some of our favorite beaches in Ohio that just don’t get enough attention:

The total trip takes about 6 and a half hours, so you can split it up over a few days during a weekend getaway. To view a Google Map of the trip in a separate tab or window, click here.
