Winter Day Trips In Ohio

December 19, 2021

What other things can I do in winter in Ohio?

You’ll feel as though you’re at a ski resort while dining inside a gondola at Market Beer in Rocky River. As one of the most unique dining experiences you can have in the state, just make sure you call ahead for a reservation as gondola seating is limited. An incredibly fun place you can take the family to this winter season is Lock 3 in Akron where you can experience ice skating, ice bumper cars, and even ice bikes! You can find additional winter activities in this post.

What are some of the best ski resorts in Ohio?

The Buckeye State is home to numerous ski resorts for some fun this winter. Brandywine Ski Resort near Cleveland not only offers some awesome skiing during the day but skiing at night as well. Alpine Valley Ski Resort has been open in Chesterland since 1965 and is in the heart of the snow belt so you know the skiing and snowboarding will be great here!

Where can I go snow tubing in Ohio? 

Mad River Mountain and Snow Trails both offer some epic snow tubing in the state as does Polar Blast Snow Tubing in Northfield, Avalanche Tubing Park in Zanesfield, and Valleys Edge in New Paris.
