What are the most popular attractions in Ohio?

It is difficult to determine the most popular attractions and day trips in Ohio. If you enjoy nature, Hocking Hills State Park in Logan is one of the most scenic and popular places to explore in the Buckeye State, along with Cuyahoga Valley National Park in northeast Ohio. Many museums in Ohio are world renown but are also free to explore, such as The National Museum of the United States Air Force in Dayton and The Cleveland Museum of Art. Some great day trip destinations kids will enjoy include Young’s Jersey Dairy in Yellow Springs, b.a. Sweetie Candy Company in Cleveland and the Velvet Ice Cream Factory in Utica.
