Would you help me decide where to go by giving us one good reason to visit your State.
Speaking on behalf of NW Ohio........can't do it.....not one! (but here's SEVEN, if that's ok!
Head to Put-In-Bay Island
!! Put in Bay | Put in Bay Hotel | Put in Bay Lodging | Put-in-Bay Ohio
Get there via the Jet Express in Port Clinton, Jet Express | The Fastest Way to Put-in-Bay and Kelleys Island | Put in Bay Lake Erie Ferry
or via Miller Boat Lines' Ferries in Catawba. Miller Boat Line: Put in Bay Miller Ferries to Put-in-Bay (putinbay) and Middle Bass Island, Ohio
Of course, you could always charter a plane, or fly your own.
Several attractions and activities, plus shopping and nightlife, make Put-In-Bay a really good choice!!
Catawba Island is worth going to, for a visit and tour of the winery there, as well as dinner in their restaurant! Historic Mon Ami Winery and Restaurant
Not far from Port Clinton and Catawba is the African Safari. Drive through and feel a bit like you're on the Serengeti. (But just a tiny bit, after all.....it's still Ohio, not Africa) Plenty of animals to watch. Very interesting! African Safari Wildlife Park | Home
And yes, the animals WILL enter your car window and give you a kiss, if you allow it!!
Happened to my father. While we were all watching one of the animals give birth out the passenger side, (we were surrounded by animals that literally ran over to us, guarding her, while she gave birth), one of the animals surprised my father with a healthy lick to the back of his head from the driver's side window! Scared him silly, but didn't spook the animal, which stayed right there "smiling" at him! IIRC it was a Llama, or something.
Then there's the Toledo Zoo, speaking of animals. A highly underrated Zoo, if you ask most. I've not been there in years, myself, but many friends go regularly, and report that it keeps getting better all the time!! The Toledo Zoo
Traveling a bit south to Archbold, Ohio, brings you to Sauder Village. Old time charm at it's best and some of the best cooking you will ever find!!! www.saudervillage.com
If you like the shooting sports, then it's worth it to visit the National Matches at Camp Perry. The center of the Universe for competition shooting!! CMP Home
and/or NRA National Rifle & Pistol Championships, Camp Perry, Ohio
Then of course there's Cedar Point.........has anyone mentioned Cedar Point yet? LOL CP Mobile
And there's more, but this should keep you busy for a while!
(Do I sound like I should be a travel agent here??)
ONE good reason? Can't do it.....there are way too many to just give ONE!!
