Best Toboggan Ride In Ohio

November 03, 2019

Where else can I ride a toboggan in Ohio?

The toboggan park in Ohio’s Mill Stream Run Reservation is doubtlessly one of the coolest winter attractions in the region, but it’s certainly not the only winter slide in Ohio. You’ll also find toboggan chutes at Virginia Kendall Park, but beyond that, this cherished winter attraction is a challenge to find it our state. Interestingly, however, the toboggan sled is a regular prop in the Calvin and Hobbes comic. Its cartoonist and author, Bill Waterson, grew up in Chagrin Falls, Ohio. (Which is why you may have spotted some local landmarks in the comic series, such as the Chagrin Falls Popcorn Shop.)

What other winter sports can I do in Ohio?

Outdoor winter activities in Ohio are an absolute adrenaline rush. There’s nothing quite like high speeds, daring adventures, and seasonal cheer experienced with an incredible, snow-kissed blanket as a backdrop. Snow tubing is a popular winter sport in Ohio, and sledding is a cherished annual tradition. You can also go ice skating, a cherished pastime that is growing increasingly popular in our more populous cities. A free festivity that is consistently satisfying is wintertime hiking, which can be enjoyed in local and state parks alike.

Is winter a popular time to visit Ohio?

Ohioans are used to our lake effect snow and unforgiving cold, but visitors are typically caught off guard by the brutality of winter in the Buckeye State. Despite this, there’s no reason to dread Ohio winter. In fact, winter endows our landscape with a particular beauty. Amish Country, farmland, and even our more populated towns and cities transform into landscapes worthy of a Hallmark movie.
