November 08, 2020

Where can I visit Santa in Ohio?

There are all sorts of annual events worth checking out around the holidays, and everyone’s favorite jolly old elf is the guest of honor at many. As a general rule, most Ohio malls and city centers have some kind of Santa appearance… and you can even meet him virtually in this cool modern age!

Are there any Christmas tree farms in Ohio?

There’s nothing like the aroma of a freshly cut Christmas tree, especially when it’s accented by seasonal scents like cinnamon. Bartels in Cincinnati is a favorite for many locals, and The Christmas Tree Barn and Michelle’s Greenery Shop is beloved by locals up north near Cleveland.

Can I take a sleigh ride in Ohio in the winter?

Longing to dash through the snow in a nice old fashioned sleigh? There are plenty of places to do so! Ma and Pa’s is a quaint little gift shop that is absolutely scenic in the winter, and Gervasi offers an elegant take on this old-fashioned wintertime activity.
