The Southwest Ohio Road Trip That Leads Explorers To Tubing And Tacos

Taking a road trip can lead to some fantastic memories as you travel around to escape everyday life. Ohio has some incredible places to explore and sometimes we just don’t venture out around our own state enough. Discover something new on this road trip to two perfectly paired locations: Little Miami Canoe Rentals in Oregonia for some tubing in Ohio and Mazunte Taqueria in Cincinnati for some delicious tacos.

Depending on the route you choose, the drive between the Little Miami River Canoe Rental in Oregonia to Mazunte Taqueria in Cincinnati will be between 29 and 31 miles and will take approximately 30-44 minutes one way (perhaps a little more if there’s traffic). You can use this Google Maps link to help plan your preferred route.

A relaxing day of tubing followed by tacos, guac, and margaritas is a perfect day trip pairing, no matter what part of Ohio you live. And if you don’t live in the Cincinnati area, there are more tubing and tacos destinations across Ohio, so be sure to check out these memorable excursions.


Southwest Ohio is filled with beautiful locations and fantastic restaurants that pair well for putting together the perfect road trip. Tubing down the Little Miami River in Oregonia and then heading to Mazunte Taqueria in Cincinnati is an ideal combination for an adventure-filled day.

Tubing in Ohio

June 23, 2022

What are some other great places to go tubing in Ohio?

When the summer heat and humidity descent upon the Buckeye State, the best course of action is to head to the water! Luckily, there are amazing rivers located all across the state that make for some truly epic tubing in Ohio. In addition to the Little Miami River (which is also located near the Loveland Bike Trail, a really fun route for anyone who loves exploring on two wheels!), we love tubing on the Mohican River in Loudonville, the Great Miami River near Tipp City, Whitewater River in Harrison, and the Hocking River in Hocking Hills.

What are some other amazing taco spots in Ohio?

If the tacos from Mazunte got you craving all.the.tacos, there are some amazing taquerias and Tex Mex spots in Ohio sure to satisfy whatever you’re in the mood for! This Ohio Taco Trail stops by 10 tasty spots that make the best tacos in the state. Condado is one of our favorites. This taco paradise opened its doors in Columbus in 2014 and has since expanded to include several locations across the state. Folks come here to “make their own” tacos from a plethora of fresh, delicious options available. You’ll start by choosing a tortilla – flour, corn, peezler, or tortilla fritos. Next, add protein such as pulled pork, ghost pepper marinated steak, or roasted chicken for the carnivores. Or, opt for the Thai chili tofu or the roasted mushrooms, ideal for vegans and vegetarians. And don’t forget to add your favorite cheeses, salsas, and sauces to your creation. Other popular toppings include lettuce, tomatoes, onions, cilantro, pickled red onions, and red cabbage. Talk about a “choose your own adventure!”
