In celebration of National Tourism Week, TourismOhio launched RoadTrips.Ohio.org to help travelers find their perfect Ohio road trip just in time for spring/summer travel planning. The 10 road trips are based on themes with some routes highlighting major celebrations and adventures in: family fun, cuisine, thriving cities, romance, outdoors, arts & culture and more.

Gervasi Vineyard is a stop on the romance road trip, titled Lovers’ Lane.  “We are excited to partner with TourismOhio to promote our winery resort to tourists traveling to Ohio seeking romance,” said Scott Swaldo, general manager of GV Destinations. “Road trips provide a fun and accessible way for travelers to explore new places. With the addition of our new boutique hotel and cocktail lounge, we are a great destination for a romantic getaway.”

“Ohio is located within a day’s drive of 60 percent of the U.S. population, and research tells us Ohio visitors are driving here from surrounding states,” said Matt MacLaren, director of TourismOhio. “We created RoadTrips.Ohio.org to be a fun and easy way for families and friends to find experiences they can enjoy together.”

There are two ways to use RoadTrips.Ohio.org. The “Find All Trips” button allows the user to browse all 10 inspirational road trips individually. The second, and perhaps most fun, is to click the “Find Your Trip” button, take a short quiz and let the site recommend road trips based on responses to what the user wants to find in Ohio.

RoadTrips.Ohio.org features the following 10 themed road trips:

Thriving Cities (Urban)                                   – Foodie Fill-Up (Cuisine)

To the Moon and Back (Space/Aviation)     – Highway to History (History)

Are We There Yet? (Family)                          – Rock, Ride and Explore (First-time visitor)

The Scenic Route (Outdoors)                       – Culture Cruise (Culture)

Lovers’ Lane (Romance)                                – Winning Drive (Sports)

The new RoadTrips.Ohio.org site provides more than suggested attractions. It also shares insider tips – such as must-try eateries, distinctive lodging and more “along the way” information that transforms a drive into a truly memorable experience.
