16 Apr The Armstrong Air & Space Museum Included in New Ohio Road Trips Site
Just in time for spring/summer travel planning, TourismOhio has launched RoadTrips.Ohio.org to help travelers find their perfect Ohio road trips. The 10 road trips are based on themes with one route highlighting the major sites and celebration of the Lunar Landing 50th anniversary. Other road trips provide adventures in family fun, cuisine, thriving cities, romance, outdoors, arts & culture and more. The Armstrong Air & Space Museum has been named a stop on the To the Moon and Back (Space/Aviation) Road Trip. We at the Greater Grand Lake Region Visitors Center are thrilled to have the Armstrong Air & Space Museum included in Ohio’s new road trips campaign. With the 50th Anniversary of the Apollo 11 Mission to the Moon we are expecting to see record attendance this summer. This campaign will certainly add to the number of visitors. Road trips are great as they provide a fun and accessible way for travelers to explore a new place or rediscover places they have already been.
TourismOhio’s Executive Director Matt MacLaren noted that 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. He said that they 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. Join in the Ohio.
