5 of the Most Beautiful Places to Visit in Ohio
It’s time to lace up your tennis shoes and start exploring. Our state is overflowing with stunning scenery and historical landmarks. Here are a few of our most beautiful places to visit in Ohio!
The Holden Arboretum
Immerse yourself in nature with a visit to The Holden Arboretum. Stroll through the blooming gardens, climb the stunning canopy walk over the treetops, and hang out in their newest exhibit, the Stickwork Tilt-a-whirl. Kids and kids at heart will love spending the day at this beautiful gem in Kirtland, Ohio.
Presque Isle State Park
If you’re planning a summer trip to Lake Erie, Presque Isle State Park needs to be on your radar. The peninsula provides 3,000 acres of hiking trails, beaches, and biking. Don’t forget to check out Presque Isle Lighthouse while you’re there. The light is one of the lake’s oldest, constructed in 1873. It is still in working operation by the U.S. Coast Guard today.
Ready to light up your Instagram? Climb the 77 stairs to the top of Marblehead Lighthouse just off the coast of central Lake Erie. The views from the top are unmatched and will leave you breathless. The lighthouse sits firmly upon the rocky limestone shores and is a beacon for the sailors arriving in Northern Ohio. Check out our complete guide to the most beautiful lighthouses in the state for a peek at a few of our other favorites!

What could be better than a taste with a view? Sip on some of the region’s most decadent wines while soaking in the grapevine trails and rolling hills. There are so many great wineries scattered across the Ohio Wine Valley, but check out a few of our favorites during your next visit!
Imagine sitting on the patio, the lake’s calm rocking right in front of you, with a glass of chilled Prosecco, and the stillness of the countryside around you.
