5 of the Best Things to Add To Your Last-Minute Getaways in Ohio Itinerary

Who said the perfect vacation must involve plenty of time for planning? Here in the Hocking Hills, some of the best visits are the spontaneous ones! There are few things more exciting than packing a bag and escaping from the hustle and bustle of everyday life with yourself or loved ones. Once you arrive for your last-minute vacation in Ohio, keep in mind some of the best local activities that you can try without reservations or an ounce of planning!

Embark on a Hiking or Climbing Excursion

Many travelers find that an adventure through Hocking Hills State Park is a great way to relieve stress, find peace in nature, and see some of the most breathtaking sights in the region. Because the Inn & Spa at Cedar Falls is bordered by the park, you won’t have to travel far to revel in these experiences! There are six major hiking trail areas in Hocking Hills State Park for you to discover including the popular Ash Cave, Cedar Falls, and Old Man’s Cave.  

The 99-acre rock climbing and rappelling area in Hocking Hills State Park is the only facility on state land that permits these activities. If you’re feeling particularly adventurous, we highly recommend taking on the challenge! You’ll find a nearly mile-long stretch of cliff ranging up to 100 feet with numerous slump blocks, rock formations, chimney, and overhangs that will make even the most avid climbers work up a sweat. As you climb, don’t forget to enjoy the lovely views of a hemlock forest backdrop. Once your feet are back on the ground, don’t forget to explore the nearby sandstone cliffs of Cockle’s Hollow!

Go Shopping

For some, retail therapy is an ideal way to unwind from the long work week while finding new items to add to your wardrobe or collection. We recommend visiting the Logan Antique Mall for some of the best shopping in our area. Here, you’ll find more than 100 dealers selling books, furniture, souvenirs, jewelry, and more. 

The Midwest Glass Outlet and the Hocking Hills Flea Market can also be found nearby and offer visitors unique, Ohio-made items you won’t find anywhere else! Or, take a gander at the unique items at Homegrown on Main. This shop in downtown Logan features unique items from local artisans, authors, and more. Bring home an ode to the Hocking Hills when you shop here!

Visit a Museum

No matter your interests, there are various museums in the Hocking Hills area for you to stop in and explore! The Columbus Washboard Company is the only remaining washboard manufacturer in the U.S. Or, if you foster an appreciation for unique art, watch a local expert blow glass at Jack Pine Glass Studio. Jack Pine is a native Ohioan who traveled far and wide perfecting this craft. Now, he’s returned home to share his art. Here, you can even take a glass blowing class! 

Get a Taste of Ohio at a Local Winery

Indulge in the bold tastes of Hocking Hills thanks to our area’s winemakers! Rockside Winery in Lancaster welcomes visitors Tuesdays through Sundays with $1 wine samples. Sip on a variety of samples, purchase a bottle of your favorite, and pair it with their small plate menu items! This is a fun, affordable way to spend an afternoon or evening out! 

If you’re looking for something a little closer to our inn, the Hocking Hills Winery is your perfect match! This family-oriented vineyard has nearly 2,000 vines and produces 12 tons of grapes annually! During your visit, you can tour the beautiful vineyards, sample several blends, or attend their fun-filled annual events.
