  1. Default Indiana to Niagara Falls

    Hi!

    Two friends and I are planning a trip from central Indiana to Niagara over our Spring Break. We'd rather take the route through Ohio than up through Michigan, but what we're really looking for are sites to see on the way there, preferably of the 'biggest ball of yarn', wacky variety. Any ideas, even un-wacky, would be great. We have all of spring break (about 8 days), so spending a day and a half on the road each way wouldn't be a big deal. It's more about the trip than the destination, right?

    Thanks!

    Absolutely, for most of us here, that is the only reason we get out there!

    I am betting you are starting in Indianapolis? Shortly after hitting the road, you could certainly head over to Tipton and get some gas and then stop by Park Cemetery on the north side of Fairmount and pay respects to ultimate bad boy and roadtrip icon -- James Dean.

    On the other hand, you could go due east and stop at the National Museum of the USAF in Dayton -- pretty cool collection of airplanes... And on the same direction is a honking huge shovel bucket (I know it is not a ball of twine) but you can find it near McConnelsville, Ohio or a slightly smaller (but still huge) example in Marion, OH.

    Well, maybe this will get you started.

    Happy Planning!

    Default The North Coast

    The US does have a North Coast along Ohio's northern border with Lake Erie. By Sanduskey, you can see the amusement park with the most roller coasters. Plus, Marblehead Lighthouse is a delight.

    I don't know that Put-in-Bay will be open by then, but it's on an island in Lake Erie, and easy to get to by ferry from Catawba or Port Clinton. This is a major party spot.

    In Toledo, you have to go to Tony Packo's for some mighty good hotdogs.

    Keep on Down that Two Lane Highway. --RoadDog
