Richland County a highlight for TourismOhio


Staff report



MANSFIELD, OHIO – Just in time for spring and summer travel planning, TourismOhio just launched RoadTrips.Ohio.org to help travelers find their perfect Ohio road trips. The 10 road trips are based on themes with some routes highlighting major celebrations including the Lunar Landing 50th anniversary and the Cincinnati Reds’ 150th year. Other road trips provide adventures in family fun, cuisine, thriving cities, romance, outdoors, arts & culture and more.

The Ohio State Reformatory and Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course were selected by TourismOhio as stops on the “Rock, Ride and Explore” and “Winning Drive” trips respectively. “We are thrilled to have sites from our area included in Ohio’s new road trips campaign,” said President, Lee Tasseff. “Road trips provide a fun and accessible way for travelers to explore a new place or rediscover a place where they have already been.” Other local stops mentioned include Wishmaker House Bed & Breakfast, The Vault Wine Bar, Somewhere in Time Bed & Breakfast, Hudson and Essex, and the Wine and Ale Trail.

The new RoadTrips.Ohio.org site provides more than suggested attractions. It also shares insider tips – such as must-try eateries, distinctive lodging and more “along the way” information that transforms a drive into a truly memorable experience.

“Ohio is located within a day’s drive of 60 percent of the U.S. population, and research tells us Ohio visitors are driving here from surrounding states,” said Matt MacLaren, director of TourismOhio. “We created RoadTrips.Ohio.org to be a fun and easy way for families and friends to find experiences they can enjoy together.”

There are two ways to use RoadTrips.Ohio.org. The “Find All Trips” button allows the user to browse all 10 inspirational road trips individually. The second, and perhaps most fun, is to click the “Find Your Trip” button, take a short quiz and let the site recommend road trips based on responses to what the user wants to find in Ohio.

RoadTrips.Ohio.org features the following 10 themed road trips:

  • Thriving Cities (Urban) – Foodie Fill-Up (Cuisine)
  • To the Moon and Back (Space/Aviation) – Highway to History (History)
  • Are We There Yet? (Family) – Rock, Ride and Explore (First-time visitor)
  • The Scenic Route (Outdoors) – Culture Cruise (Culture)
  • Lovers’ Lane (Romance) – Winning Drive (Sports)
