Here Are the Best Ways to Spend Your Hocking Hills New Year’s Eve
A Relaxing Getaway
Get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life so you can focus on welcoming January 1st relaxed and rejuvenated. Head to the Inn & Spa at Cedar Falls with your sweetheart for a stress-free stay and indulge in our New Year’s Eve Special. Upon your arrival, you’ll be greeted by two etched champagne glasses and a bottle of champagne. Savor a delicious dinner at Kindred Spirits on New Year’s Eve, plus breakfast each morning of your stay. Make your intimate getaway special with winter hiking, brewery visits, spa treatments, and more.
New Year’s Eve Train
Ring in the New Year with a ride on the Hocking Valley Scenic Railway! You can indulge in pizza and soda or wine and cheese as you take the scenic route through town. At midnight, cuddle up and watch a spectacular fireworks display to welcome the new year with a bang. The train departs at 10:30 p.m. and the ride lasts about two hours. Reservations are required, so hurry and get your tickets before it’s too late!
Local tip: The Wine & Cheese Car is separate from the Pizza & Pop Car. No one under 21 can enter the Wine & Cheese Car and no one under 18 can ride separately from an adult in the Pizza & Pop Car. Be sure to plan accordingly.
New Year’s Eve Gala
The Dairy Barn Arts Center is home to more than 10,000 square feet of exhibition and classroom space, making it the perfect place to hold a New Year’s Eve Gala. Because the mission of this organization is to offer programs that benefit the community, the event is free! This space is on the National Register of Historic Places and makes a stunning venue for the event.
