I’m still amazed at the number of Ohioans that have never visited Hocking Hills and there’s no better time of year to visit than now! Spending a Fall weekend in the Hills is a budget-friendly vacation without having to leave the state! Hiking is one of the area’s main attractions and the following are my favorite places in Hocking Hills to take in the great outdoors.
I’m so excited to share this Athens travel guide with you – it’s been in the works since this past Fall after a day trip visit chocked full of good food, drinks, and fun explorations. I’ve been visiting Athens for years now – my husband went to OU – and the quaint southern Ohio college town holds a lot of fun memories.
In honor of today being National Take a Hike Day, I thought I’d share one of Nic and I’s favorite hikes we took this Fall! If you’ve never been to Rising Park in Lancaster, Ohio, it’s worth the short drive from Central Ohio on 33 East. The park has a pond, picnic tables, playgrounds, shelter houses, tennis courts, etc.
