Take a Road Trip in Ohio

Whether you already live in OH-IO! or just want to visit the Buckeye state, there are quite a few destinations that will require more than a day for you to get the total experience. From shopping in each of the Three Cs (Cleveland, Columbus and Cincinnati) and experiencing their city skylines to nature getaways that are breathtakingly beautiful, Ohio definitely has it all. Even if you've lived here all your life, consider planning road trips right here in your own state.

The following are activities that are must-do, along with some beloved destinations that might just be the best road trips to take in Ohio.

First Things First

When you're planning your trip, you need to be sure your vehicle is road trip ready. You also should have an itinerary and have enough money set aside for any unplanned emergencies. If you need to get a loan in Ohio before heading out so that you have enough cash on hand for whatever arises, go ahead and do it. Make sure you have everything you need so you don't need to worry about anything when you're on the road except for having fun.

Put-In-Bay

Did you know there's actual island life in Ohio? If you plan to come here, make sure your road trip essentials include swimwear so you can hit the beaches. This is a charming little coastal town right on the body of water known as Lake Erie. Here, you can pay a visit to Perry's Victory and International Peace Memorial if you're looking for an experience that's unforgettable. You might also decide to tour the island by golf cart or train if you want to see everything it has to offer.

Sandusky

If you happen to be a roller coaster enthusiast, Sandusky is a must-see destination. You'll be able to ride all of the roller coasters Cedar Point has to offer as many times as you can. You might also want to experience a day in Cedar Point's water park if you're more of a water lover. Once you've done all of that, you can end your visit to Sandusky with a scenic picnic on the banks of Lake Erie and take a tour of Marblehead Lighthouse. This is one of the most photographed lighthouses in the entire state and a picturesque attraction.

Columbus

Have you ever visited your state capital? You might decide to walk along the Short North Arts District if you're feeling the need for a bit of culture. You can see art galleries, street art, and even murals here. If you're an animal lover, you might check out the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium to spend a day viewing wildlife. Then again, you might mosey on over to the German Village where you'll get to enjoy authentic German cuisine, walk on cobblestone streets, and booklovers can explore a bookstore that has a whopping 32 rooms!

Hocking Hills

This beloved state park is a nature getaway where you can spend your nights in a charming cabin. During your days, you might explore a number of caves, visit Cedar Falls or any of the other gorgeous landmarks to be found along the numerous hiking trails. You might even decide to experience the thrill of a zip line!

If what you've just read ignited your lust for more, then you'll come to find that Ohio is just chock full of wonderful places to visit. Which road trip is the best? That's purely a matter of opinion. Whatever your idea of fun is, you're sure to find it in the Buckeye State. From shopping and dining to culture to adventure and thrills, you don't need to leave Ohio to find it.
