The start of a new year always brings about the hope of so many possibilities. There are resolutions we all try and keep up with, as best as we can, and some resolutions that we do everything in our power to keep. For some, the latter can be traveling to new places. When most think about traveling to new places, we all think about far off cities that can take so long to get to. Why not try something a little closer first? Consider coming to see us at Inn at Cedar Falls and taking a Hocking Hills vacation this year. Never been to Ohio? Come check out all of the fun things we have in store this year that make perfect activities for a Hocking Hills vacation.
Before we get into the festivals of the year, one activity is perfect for a Hocking Hills vacation no matter what time of year it is, exploring Hocking Hills. Close to us at Inn at Cedar Falls is Hocking Hills State Park, a place that contains hours of discovery and entertainment in the form of trails, caves, and much more. One way that some like to discover Hocking Hills is through the air on a canopy tour. One wonderful company, The Hocking Hills Canopy Tours, takes its visitors on a thrilling adventure that starts with a fun mile and a half walk, 10 zip lines, 5 skybridges and rappelling down when you are done. Whether you are zipping through the air or waiting for your turn, you will be educated by your guide about the local plants and trees, animals, and so much more. One great thing about The Hocking Hills Canopy Tours is that you can rent a Go-Pro camera from them for your tour so you can relive the excitement long after you get home from your Hocking Hills vacation.
Another reason to plan a Hocking Hills vacation in 2015 is for our amazing festivals and events. We have so many reasons to celebrate here in Ohio. The first event that we host is the Sweetheart Hike at Hocking Hills State Park. This Valentine’s themed hike is always on Valentine’s Day and is from 5 to 7 pm. You and your partner will leisurely stroll to Ash Cave where you will enjoy a fire and some yummy treats. This is a great way to not only show your partner that you care but also a great family activity as well. The next festival is in March and is the Maple Syrup Festival. This attracts a good amount of visitors planning a Hocking Hills vacation. This year’s festival will be March 7th and 8th from 12-4 pm and will meet at the Naturalist Cabin. From there learn all about how tree sap is turned into a great way to adorn pancakes and waffles. There will be tours and guides who can help you with any questions you might have. There will also be maple syrup vendors there so you can take some delicious syrup home. The next few festivals are some that we just love going to and we have many visitors planning their Hocking Hills vacation around these festivals. The first in April and May is the Wild Turkey Festival. Starting April 30th (5-11 pm) and continuing on May 1st and 2nd (11am-11pm), and concluding May 3rd (12-5pm) MacArthur will be flooded with fun. When you go downtown you will see carnival rides, food, music, quilt show and car show that is fun for the whole family. Be sure to grab a spot for the main parade on Saturday at 6pm. The next festival is perfect for those who love a little bit of history with their booze, the New Straitsville Moonshine Festival. While there you can tour a working moonshine distillery, learn a lot of moonshine history, vendors, and lots of moonshine themed food. All of this will be held May 21st-25th. The last festival until summer is one that a lot of people love coming to and centering their Hocking Hills vacation around, the Nelsonville Music Festival. This super fun outdoor concert will be held May 28th-31st at Hocking College. The music typically found at this festival is folk/country with the likes of Merle Haggard, Moon Hooch, My Bubba, and more. Be sure to check out their site to find out who else will be playing and to purchase tickets.
The last reason why so many visitors love choosing a Hocking Hills vacation is to stay with us at Inn at Cedar Falls.
