Hey there! Do you mind me asking what part of Ohio you’re from or at least what part of Ohio you’re interested in staying in? I’m from Cincinnati so I could make some suggestions for SW Ohio, but you mentioned Sandusky, so I don’t want to give suggestions that are on the opposite end of the state if you’re looking more in the Sandusky area! 🙂

@JemmyGee:  How about a bed and breakfast in Amish country (southwest of Canton)? It’s not too far away from Columbus, and there’s lots to do there.

I know it isnt ohio but I am a huge fan of Newport and Cincy in a combined trip. It is a little different of a getaway than a bed and breakfast of course

What about Put-In-Bay? We did that as a family vacation when I was younger, I remember driving around South Bass Island on golf carts. I wonder what sort of offerings they’d have for adults.

ETA: just saw you’re considering it 😉

@JemmyGee:  LOL I came here to suggest Hocking Hills because we went there for a reunion a couple years ago and I LOOOOVED it. I’m from CA though, so the big open skies and a freaking deer hanging out on our porch was pretty awesome to me.

@JemmyGee:  Well Gemstone is the expert as she is from there but i like the aquirium a lot. Speaking of the Columbus Zoo now has some new stuff and a new water park that is awesome. There is also Olentangy Indian Caves close by and then be sure to try Jeni’s ice cream while in the area. Back to Cincy- I like Cock and Bull for a place to stop by but there is also lots of things to do in downton cincy. Across the river is the Aquirium and a nice shopping area in Newport.

I was going to say Put-in-Bay too!  Downtown Cleveland?  You could do an Indians game, the Rock Hall, Tremont/Ohio City (great restaurants) or the Art Museum and Little Italy are close by.

Chagrin Falls is also great, although you probably need to stay in Beachwood–I can’t think of a close hotel.

The lodge in Geneva?  I think the prices are reasonable and you are right on the lake.

PS–I grew up in Cleveland.

@LaTortuga:  Haha! Those are great suggestions! Where in Ohio are you?

@JemmyGee:  I’m about to hop offline, but I promise to return tomorrow with some Cincy ideas for ya! 🙂 Any preferences on what kind of trip you’d like to have, some things you guys like to do?
