While Cleveland is a fantastic city for entertainment, sometimes you just crave a visit to small-town festivities. There’s nothing like a trip to a small town during festival season, especially if that festival focuses on Ohio’s sweetest crop… that’s right, we’re talking about the watermelon! Just 13 miles outside of Cedar Point is a petite village with a watermelon festival that’s a big deal, and it’s too close to home to pass up. As they say, fried chicken is mighty fine but there’s nothing quite as nice as a watermelon vine.
