My daughter is about to start her freshman year at THE Ohio State University. As school starts before Labor Day and she is going to be 600 miles from home, we are considering coming to Ohio for Labor Day weekend (we are assuming many kids will go home for the long weekend). We would like to explore south eastern or eastern Ohio. Does anyone have any suggestions of things to do in these areas? We have relatives in Cincinnati, Cleveland and Toledo and have visited Cedar Point several times so those are not the areas we would like to visit this time. State parks with outdoor activities? Quaint towns with fun things to do? We would like to stay within 2 hours of Columbus. Many thanks for the suggestions.
Ideally, we would like to book cancelable reservations in the event she finds that other students stay at school for the weekend. We can simply cancel the reservation and let her enjoy her weekend. Thanks, Moms
P.S. We will be traveling with a 14 year old sister, 16 year old brother, 18 year old Buckeye and Mom and Dad.
