Are there many wineries in Ohio? 

Old Firehouse Winery isn’t the only unique winery in Ohio; there are numerous beautiful wineries to explore in the Buckeye State! With more than 150 beautiful wineries, Ohio certainly has an impressive collection of local wines to choose from. What makes certain wineries stand out from others, however, is the memorable settings. Blue Barn Winery in Wooster, Ohio, is one of those wineries. From the inside-out, it’s absolutely stunning. Tucked away in the rolling hills of Wayne County, you’ll find this beautiful gem. It’s a winery housed in a restored, 19th-century barn that really is about as charming as it gets.

What are some other lakeside restaurants in Ohio?

There’s nothing quite like enjoying dinner with a waterfront view; happily, the Buckeye State has numerous bodies of water, and, consequently, numerous lakeside restaurants. Some of our favorites include: Tilton Hilton in Lakeview, The Boat House at Confluence Park in Columbus, Cranberry Resort in Huntsville, and Boathouse BBQ in Marietta.

What are some must-visit restaurants in Ohio?

For a full list of our favorite restaurants in Ohio, check out (and bookmark!) this list. But in keeping with our waterfront dining theme, we can’t say enough good things about Pier W. Pier W opened in 1965 and sits perched on the cliffs overlooking Lake Erie. The design is totally unique. It looks like a simple elevator shaft from the carpark entrance. But once you go down to the patio, or the dining room, you’ll see why this is one of Cleveland’s premier dining destinations. The view from the patio is just to die for. Come down early for a sunrise like this one! Pier W is an only-in-Ohio restaurant you really must experience.
