The Hocking Hills is a utopia for beer lovers! There are many fantastic breweries to choose from, some of which have earned awards for their craft selections. As a guest at the Inn & Spa at Cedar Falls, the most convenient of these breweries is Brewery 33 in Logan, OH. This new local treasure provides Appalachian-style beer while honoring the German heritage. While you indulge in craft beers like Cranberry Gose and Rock House Red, the kids can enjoy homemade cream soda and root beer! That way, everyone in the family has something new to try!

  1. Pencil Sharpener Museum

Yes, you read that right! Logan is home to the world’s only pencil sharpener museum! Twenty years ago, Reverend Paul Johnson started his own pencil sharpener collection. Today, that collection has grown to over 3,400 sharpeners, and you can see them all in this quirky local museum.
