Summer Beaches In Ohio

What are the best day trips in Ohio?
A trip to an Ohio beach is always rewarding, but summer can be made magical in other ways. You can visit local wineries, or swing by Amish Country. During the fall, any country road becomes a foliage wonderland, and winter brings us frozen waterfalls.
What are the best outdoor activities in Ohio?
The very best thing to do in the great outdoors in Ohio is hiking! Ledges Trail in Cuyahoga Valley National Park is magnificent, and any of the country parks in the state are worth exploring. If you’re a nature lover, you’ll also adore tubing!
What are the most unique parks in Ohio?
There are many unique public spaces in Ohio! The Temple of Tolerance is something of a park, but it’s unlike any other public space in the state. Pyramid Hill Sculpture Park is also otherworldly, and both destinations belong on your bucket list.
