With Valentine’s Day on the horizon and the winter blues starting to ease, our beautiful state of Ohio is booming with events. So whether you’re passing through in your RV or are a full-time Ohio resident, get out and get involved in the fun.
Ma and Pa’s Sleigh Rides
Just because Christmas has passed doesn’t mean the festive activities need to stop. February is the last month to enjoy Ma and Pa’s Horse-Drawn Sleigh Rides in Troy Township. Start at Ma and Pa’s rustic log cabin and tour the country side in an old-fashioned, horse-drawn sleigh. And don’t forget to stop in the cabin when the ride is finished for hot chocolate and homemade cookies.
Chocolate is for Lovers Wine Trail
Start celebrating Valentine’s Day a little early with the Chocolate is for Lovers wine trail from Cleveland to Conneaut. Enjoy the self-driving tour with your loved one as you stop for wine samples and gourmet chocolates along the way, and don’t forget to pick up your complimentary wine glass as a souvenir from your adventure. The tour is held Feb. 1, 7 and 8, so sign up at www.OhioWines.org before you miss out.
Medina Ice Festival
Whether you’re looking for a romantic day out or fun for the entire family, there’s no better place to be than the Medina Ice Festival on the weekend of Feb. 14-17. Watch exciting ice carving competitions, admire the artwork, warm up in the quaint shops of the historic district or enjoy downtown Medina’s incredible dining — you’ll love that you decided to do something a little different for Valentine’s Day.
Native American Indian Gathering
Still a little too cold to spend a lot of time outside? Head over to the Native American Indian Gathering at the UAW Hall in Lima on Feb. 15 or 16. Your whole family will love this Powwow style event with dancing, foods, crafts and endless activities.
