For many travellers booking hotel accommodation in Ohio, spending as much time outdoors as possible is their main goal.  This is particularly true for those who have busy city lives and hardly get the time to enjoy a stroll in the park, for example.

If you are up for a beautiful hike, then visit the Hocking Hills State Park.  Located near Logan, this area has everything from lush green surroundings to tranquil waterfalls.  There are also caves, various hiking routes and even camping facilities so you can enjoy a night under the stars.  If you want to explore some of the most popular spots when staying in Ohio, make sure that you equip yourself with a map and make a note of places like Ash Cave, Rock House, Cedar Falls, Cantwell Cliffs and Old Man's Cave.

The Franklin Park Conservatory and botanical garden is located in Cincinnati, OH so you don't have to go far from the central city accommodation to reach a beautiful green space.  Although this is a permanent feature, the plant displays are changed according to the seasons.  Some of the greenhouses were built as far back as the 1800s and have been very well-maintained over the years.
