Great Wolf Lodge

If you are looking for a sweet and simple weekend getaway, consider staying a few nights at Great Wolf Lodge. Although it isn’t far from home, with all its amenities and attractions, you won’t feel like you’re in Ohio. While most of the activities are aimed towards children, adults are still able to enjoy their time off at the spa salon. If you’re missing the days of summer, one can never go wrong with the water park area of the lodge. The warm water of the pools, lagoons, rivers and creeks will make you forget about the cold wintery weather outside; not to mention taking a dip in the soothing hot springs.

Boston Mills/Brandywine Ski Resort

Embracing the winter weather can be fun if you know what to do and where to go. Going to a ski resort is a great way to spend time with friends and family, or alone if you prefer, and enjoy time away. With the choice of skiing or snow tubing, you can’t go wrong. If you’re not a fan of road trips, consider Mad River Mountain instead.

Hocking Hills

If you’re craving some alone time, or time with loved ones, consider renting a cabin at Hocking Hills. At a reasonable price, spend a few nights in a cozy cabin, away from all the hubbub of college life. Depending on your mood, check out the attractions around Hocking Hills, or stay comfy in your cabin.
