Take This Quilt Barn Tour In Ohio For A Day Of Old Fashioned Fun
There’s no place like rural Ohio.
If you’re a true Ohioan, then you know the value of a leisurely backroad drive on a lazy afternoon. The Buckeye State is home to some of the most charming countryside in America. (Be sure to check out this covered bridge trail.) If you’ve ever heard of something called the Ohio Barn Quilt Trail, you should set aside a day to explore the quilt barns nearest you—because there’s likely a county dotted with these special barns less than an hour’s drive time away. (Chances are, your own county is hiding a few of these special barns!)
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
Some Ohio counties have even started their own quilt barn trails, such as the Ashtabula County Barn Quilt Trail. For more information about this particular trail, watch the short video below.
