Why You’ll Want To Visit This Unique And Underrated Destination Before It Becomes Too Popular
Some of America’s natural attractions are more popular than others, yet popularity doesn’t always indicate how special a place can be. That’s certainly the case for Hocking Hills State Park, a jewel of Ohio’s Appalachian region that has been seriously underrated. And yet, there’s been a recent uptick in visits over the past year alone. For this very reason, you’ll want to plan your trip to the beloved state park if you’re interested in seeing it without the major crowds.
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/
