Few things in life are better than exploring your home state.
You’re often genuinely (and pleasantly) surprised by what you’ll find. You’ll likely discover your new favorite town or attraction. And you’ll have something really cool to show visitors or fellow Ohioans who weren’t as adventurous as you were in 2017. That’s why we’re recappping 12 of the best towns we featured last year to bring you a list of 12 unique towns in Ohio to visit this new year. If you visit one town each month, you’ll end the year with a deeper appreciation for Ohio.
(For further information about each town, simply click on the name of the town next to the list number.)
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/
