6 Places To Visit In Ohio Over Spring Break

6 Places To Visit In Ohio Over Spring Break

Do you have spring break plans?

Spring break is coming up, which means we get to get a week off school; some of us are going to the beach or on vacation, while the others are stuck at home. Instead of believing Ohio is the most boring state, here are some places you can visit to make your spring break a little less dull:

1. Columbus Zoo

The Columbus Zoo is located just north of Columbus in Powell, Ohio. I can be the first one to tell you that the Columbus Zoo has plenty to do to keep you or your family busy.

2. Cincinnati Zoo

This is another zoo that has plenty to do and mixes your up zoo experience up if you always go to the Columbus Zoo. Plus, the famous hippo Fiona resides here.

3. The Cleveland Museum of Art

If zoos don't fit into what you like to do in your spare time, then the Cleveland Museum of Art is something to switch up what you do on a normal day.

4. Hocking Hills

If it's not snowing, then Hocking Hills is a beautiful place to visit. It has places where you can rent on the lake or even just going down there to hike. I've been there many times, and each time, I see something new. If you enjoy the outdoors, this is something you should definitely try.

5. Air Force Museum

If history is your thing, then there is The National Museum of the United States Air Force, located in the northeast part of Dayton, Ohio.


Cosi is located in the heart of downtown Columbus and is both interactive and interesting for adults and kids. They also bring in different exhibits. So, if you go once and see a certain one, the next time it could be completely different.

To The Girl Who Hasn't Been Herself Lately

Your spark return, and you will shine like you were meant to.

Life gets tough. Life gets too much to handle sometimes, and those times make you stronger. However, right now, it seems like you have lost yourself.

It’s difficult when you catch yourself not being you. When you do something or act a certain way and just wonder, “what did I do to deserve this? Why is this happening? When will it get better?” The way you’re feeling is not so much that you’re unhappy, you just feel weird.

Your day will come. I promise you. This is just a phase.

The day you realize how much you have grown from this point in time will be your reward. It is so hard to see now, and I feel your pain.

Your light will return to you. Your pure bliss moments, they are seeking you. Your laughter where your tummy aches is in your reach.

Our moods change far too often for us as humans to understand why, but the encounters you make every day have this effect on us.

You must remember the pure happiness you experienced before your first heartbreak, before the first friend became someone you thought they weren’t, before you lost your innocence. That was a time of true joy as you had not a care in the world for the things that would harm you. Better yet, you didn’t have the option to experience them because you were just a child.

The world can be an ugly place, and your attitude towards life can change every day. One thing is for certain: you did not lose who you are internally. We all put on a face for the world. For the people who we try to impress. For the life we want to live. For the things we want to achieve.

Your definitive personality is still in the works. Believe it or not, it always will be. Times like this change us for the better even though we can’t see it.

Your happiness will return. You will be a better, stronger version of you. In fact, you will be the best version of you yet.

Once this phase is over, you will be okay. This I promise you.

5 Places To Road Trip From Tucson

Tucson can be boring at times, here are the top 5 places to road trip to.

Tucson can be arguably boring at times, and a lot of us get into the same rhythm of staying in. It is so important to utilize the beautiful state that we're in, and adventure as much as possible! If you don't have a car, then find a friend that you can carpool with. I promise, you will be so glad that you decided to road trip and explore our surroundings. At the end of college, I want to be able to say that I traveled all over Arizona, and experienced the best parts of nature (and I'm sure you do too)!

here are the top 5 places to road trip to:

1. Mt. Lemmon

1-hour drive from Tucson.

Okay this one can be super obvious to a lot of locals, but surprisingly a lot of students have yet to take a trip to Mt. Lemmon. It's a beautiful little microclimate, and this mountain is usually about twenty degrees cooler than Tucson, which can be an amazing getaway during the hottest days. Most people don't even know that there is a lake where you can walk, run, or even fish in!

2. Picacho Peak

41 minutes from Tucson.

Picacho Peak is an awesome place to hike, but make sure you bring sunblock and LOTS of water. There is also a cute ostrich farm where you can feed the ostriches, and even pet stingray!

3. The Grand Canyon

5 hours from Tucson.

The Grand Canyon is one of the seven wonders of the world, and it's only about a 5 hour car ride away! Definitely rent an airbnb and spend the weekend hiking, rafting, or rock climbing.

4. Seven Falls

25 minutes from the University of Arizona.

This is one of my favorite hikes in Tucson, by far! I would highly recommend going right after it rains, because that's when the falls are the fullest! Make sure you bring your swim suit, and go early because the sun is super intense.

5. Lake Pleasant

2 1/2 hours from Tucson.

This was by far one of my favorite hikes in Phoenix. My friends and I actually saw a herd of wild horses grazing, fighting, and even mating (yeah that last one wasn't the best to witness)! There is also a place where you can cliff jump, but be prepared, its a mile hike up a rocky path!

Overall, my favorite places to road trip to have been Seven Falls, Lake Pleasant, and Mt. Lemmon. I really recommend stepping out into nature. Instead of staying in and watching a movie, rather enjoy what Arizona has to offer. Arizona is a beautiful state, make sure that you don't miss out on taking an adventure whether it's in Tucson or beyond.
