I've heard of the Air Force Museum that sounds fun. Thanks for the comments, tips, and helpful information with that Safari deal.

This morning I received these ideas as well from reader Kevin Hammer who wanted to share them. This was what he wanted to share:

Geneva on the Lake, about an hour east of Cleveland. Old fashioned boardwalk on Lake Erie. Surrounded by wineries.

If you go to Amish country in Holmes County, check out Rolling Acres safari park, where you ride in a horse-drawn wagon, not a car.
(Don't go to Amish areas on Sundays, everything is closed.)

Closer to home: Maumee Bay State Park. Boardwalk through wetlands and woods. http://parks.ohiodnr.gov/maumeebay

RB Hayes Presidential Center in Fremont - if you like history at all, worth a visit. Many events, Civil War re-enactment in Oct.

Also, Halloweekends at Cedar Point is great (maybe more fun than going during the summer), but if it's Saturday and the weather is nice, the place is packed beyond belief.


Henry Ford Museum in Deerborn, MI is a "must go"


I haven't been there yet, but I really want to check out "The
Wilds" a huge nature preserve with many exotic or endangered animals near Cambridge OH. It's run by the Columbus Zoo.

For a day trip there is a really nice bed and breakfast in Grand Rapids, OH. The shops are all decked out during the Christmas season and it is fun for a little getaway in the winter. The bed and breakfast is called the Mill House and the owners are extremely hospitable.

I hope to take a family vacation to Hocking Hills with you next year. I camped there as a kid & loved it. I know you & the rest of the family will love it too!
