Tour the natural and historical spectacles of the Buckeye State

You may be surprised by just how much history and culture you can experience in just one or two drives through Ohio. Expert travel author and photographer Matt Forster takes you to places you wouldn’t guess existed in the Buckeye State, like the Lake Erie Isles - a vacationer’s paradise virtually unheard of outside of a few local counties. Head to the Hocking Hills to see waterfalls and gorges along the rivers or visit the vibrant college town of Athens. Want a longer trip? Travel cross-state on the Old National Road or discover local glassmakers still plying their trade in the Western Reserve, where glassmaking history goes way back.

Explore Amish country; Native American mounds; the Underground Railroad; Chillicothe; still full of stately mansions; and so much more. With easy-to-follow maps and directions, Backroads & Byways of Ohio will guide you throughout your entire journey and help you make it one to remember.
