Ohio is full of fascinating history and beautiful landscapes. Come discover all that this state’s backroads offer travelers.

Backroads & Byways of Ohio takes you to places you wouldn’t guess existed in the Buckeye State, like the Lake Erie Isles— a vacationer’s paradise virtually unheard of outside of a few local counties. Or head to the Hocking Hills (not far from the quintessential college town of Athens) to see waterfalls and gorges along the rivers. Want a longer trip? Travel cross-state on the Old National Road or discover local glassmakers still plying their trade in the Western Reserve, where glassmaking history goes way back. Explore Amish country, Native American mounds, and visit important sites on the Underground Railroad near Ohio’s first (then third!) capital, Chillicothe, still full of stately mansions.
