Tips from locals
If you’re willing to drive just a bit (about an hour), taking a trip down US 33 E to Hocking County will give you one of the most incredible scenes Ohio has to offer. Gorgeous waterfalls, otherworldly limestone formations and massive, historic caves can be found all over the county, and there are…
There is a little pencil sharpener museum here... not worth a specific trip, but if you're passing by...
a little bit of a drive (about 90 minutes) but if love to hike it has lots of trails and waterfalls.
This is the Main attraction. There will be many different areas to visit inside the state park.
Wonderful place to check-out, breath in some fresh air, explore Old Man's Cave, and hike for as long or as short as you'd like.

“Athens' very best pizza. Voted Best Pizza *every single year since they opened* 15 years ago. Several surprisingly good wacky specialty pizzas on the menu, but the best kept secret is their three pizza deal. Gluten free pizza & subs available, among many other treats. Delivery or to go, no seating.”

“Great craft beer brewed from locally sourced ingredients. Fond of saisons & sours, with a family-friendly beer garden and convenient proximity to the bike path. Live music sometimes, and events that include jam sessions, yoga, kids' days, and even an owl night once. ”
