OHIO THREE BIGGEST CITIES: CINCINNATI, COLUMBUS AND CLEVELAND
So on our way from Kentucky, we crossed a State Line with the State of Ohio, peaceful and pleasant place you definitely have to consider visiting. Our road leads exactly trough all its three biggest cities Cincinnati, Columbus and Cleveland. The most part of our Ohio’s visit was in Columbus, in a bold Hotel LeVeque, Autograph Collection. I will tell you more about it in my next post soon, really a unique place to stay and actually one of a kind, because it’s an Autograph Collection. We decided to visit all three cities in the first day, so I will tell in a few words about each of them and surrounding attractions.
Also, we saw the monument of Christopher Columbus, in whose honor this city is proudly bears its name. And of course visited Short North, which is the cultural and dining place to go. It has so many different painting on walls, cafes, restaurants that it’s hard to count.
Stars of my outfit here – Marion Parker loafer pumps and Parker Smith jeans. Simply adore this combo! I literally crossed Columbus in this shoes and denim and it feels like these pieces were made for stylish walking! I paired them with sleeveless cotton shirt and merino cardigan, you can find them all in ‘shop the post’ section.
While the city does have a lot to offer, make sure not to miss the natural wonders located just outside the city. Hocking Hills Park is situated in the Logan County, just some 57 miles southeast of Columbus. Our entire country is famous for its breathtaking nature sights, but this particular park had become famous not so long ago when a photographer discovered Corkscrew Falls in there. It literally looks like a special effect from an epic fantasy movie, only it’s real. It’s a bit hard to find, but with a little help from online resources and luck, you will surely be able to check it out, and it is well worth it!
On the other side, 52 miles northwest of Columbus, you will find King Crystal Caverns. Also known as the Ohio Caverns, – one of the largest cave formations in the country, full of bizarre stalactite and stalagmite formations. Btw, most of which are still “alive.”
On the way to our last destination in Ohio, which is Cleveland, we’ve visited Marblehead Lighthouse, that is located 80 miles west of Cleveland. Marblehead Lighthouse Park – the home of no less than the oldest operating lighthouse (since 1822) on the United States side of the Great Lakes.
Finally, 66 miles east of Cleveland, just along the coast of Lake Erie is Ashtabula County with its astounding concentration of covered bridges. I’ve counted 17 of them and even was lucky enough to record our drive through under almost half of them! Enjoy!
