Oh Hi Ohio! Exploring the Buckeye State
Ohio offers a wealth of fantastic experiences for travelers of all kind. Perhaps you prefer to while away your time exploring new cities. In which case, Cleveland, Cincinnati, and Columbus are all great options. Alternatively, you may prefer to enjoy the Great Outdoors, and you can be assured that there is no shortage of options in Ohio. So, here are just a few of the top attractions and sights which you can take in during your time in the Buckeye State.
Music and Culture in Cleveland
A lot of money has been pumped into making Cleveland an attractive tourist destination in recent years, and there is no doubt that the city has gone through something of a transformation. Right at the top of the list of attractions is the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame on the waterfront which features exhibits talking you through some of the greatest bands and artists of all-time. If rock music isn’t your thing, you could always head over the to the Cleveland Museum of Art to get your dose of culture.
Cedar Point Amusement Park
If white-knuckle thrills are what you are looking for, the Cedar Point Amusement Park is the place to go! You will probably need a couple of days to ride on each of the 17 major roller coasters. But there are also family entertainment zones for those who are traveling with kids. If water rides are more your thing, head over to Cedar Point Shores Water Park for splish-splashing adventures.
Columbus Zoo & Aquarium
So much more than just another wildlife center, the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium is regularly ranked amongst the best in the whole United States of America. More than 10,000 creatures call this place their home. The best time of year to come here is during the Wildlights festival at the end of the year when millions of lights illuminate the entire zoo. If you are looking for accommodation nearby, check out Hotel LeVeque. Another wonderful display of nature which you can enjoy during your time in the city is found at Franklin Park Conservatory and Botanical Gardens.
If you are interested in seeing a different way of life during your time in Ohio, simply take a drive over to Amish Country. The twisting roads are packed with Amish buggies, while you will be able to spot plenty of farmers at work in the field. Head into some of the small communities and you can pick up some locally-made produce. What better souvenir can you get to remind you of your time here?
Hocking Hills State Park
If you are looking for outdoor adventures, Hockin Hills State Park is a destination which you shouldn’t miss out on. Hiking trails, caves, and camping facilities are aplenty, and some of the top sights include Old Man’s Cave, Cedar Falls, and Cantwell Cliffs.
As you can see, Ohio is a diverse and exciting state to visit. These are just a few attractions which you should enjoy while you are here.
