For those who value learning and the arts…
The Cleveland Museum of Art is a perfect destination. This museum has been built as early as 1916. This has been a home for European, Asian and American art pieces with the addition of more pieces as the years pass.
You can also find the Wright Brothers National Memorial in Ohio which may come to sate your thirst for learning. It is the same place where the Wright brothers have built the first ever airplane. And at this same spot, they have also learned how to fly one.
For those who value fun and leisure…
The Cedar Point is the place to stay. This is an amusement park and resort in one. Roller coaster rides, carousels and water rides are just some that you may want to try riding into with your family and friends. These rides are less intense compared to other amusement parks which mean that you can even tag your children along with the rides.
The park can house guests too. You can go camping in its wide space. But if you are less adventurous, you can go for a cabin accommodation. There are also luxury hotel suites in the resort if you would like a special treatment.
As what you can clearly see, there is a place for everyone in Ohio. All the types of fun, leisure and learning activities can just be achieved while roaming around the places it covers.
