There’s a three-day weekend coming up that you may have slipped your memory in the hustle and bustle of Valentine’s Day. February 17 is President’s Day, so make your camping reservations near one of these presidential locations in our beautiful state of Ohio, and you can enjoy a weekend that’s fun and educational for the whole family too.
Rutherford B. Hayes Presidential Center
Not only is the Rutherford B. Hayes Presidential Center in Fremont, Ohio a National Historic Landmark, it’s the perfect place to learn about our nation’s 19th president. Visit Hayes’ massive 31-room home, a museum, presidential library and even the grave site of the president himself. Your kids will love all of the exhibits, events and activities held at the museum so much, they’ll probably forget that they’re actually learning.
William Taft’s Childhood Home
Taking a weekend trip to the Cincinnati area? Tour the childhood home of the United States’ 27th president William Howard Taft. Tours are free and run from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on a daily basis, so you can make it a last-minute learning experience if you’ve already made plans for the city.
James Garfield’s Victorian Era Home
Before you head back home on President’s Day, pay a visit to James Garfield’s former home in Mentor. This gorgeous Victorian-era home is certainly a site to see, and special family-friendly events and programs are held on President’s Day. Admission is only $5 and kids under 15 get in free, so it’s the perfect budget-friendly activity to end a three-day weekend in your RV.
The National Museum of the U.S. Air Force
Looking for a presidential destination that will really excite your kids? Head to the National Museum of the U.S. Air Force in Dayton to see a number of aircrafts used by our nation’s presidents. You’ll be amazed to see the Boeing 707 Air Force One plane used the day President Kennedy was killed and tons of other significant presidential planes.
