Struggling For Vacation Ideas? Frommer's Says Stay Home

We here at Scene are very fond of rankings and such. So, here’s one that’s sure to inspire a stay-put summer vacation instead of a far-flung one. Frommer’s, whose travel guides are to the intrepid what Zagat guides are to foodies, rates Northeastern Ohio as a top 20 U.S. summer vacation spot. Believe it or not, this puts us right up there with mystical Big Sur, CA; the Oregon Coast; Montana’s Glacier National Park; Boulder, CO; and Santa Barbara, CA.

Okay. So Madison, WI and Knoxville, TN make the list too; we don’t know why and don’t really care.

Frommer’s says that Mohican State Park is “particularly inviting” with its old-growth hemlock forests and “spectacular” Clear Fork Gorge. Scene staff experience with Mohican is limited to drunken floats down the river in a rented tube but according to Frommer’s, it’s much more romantic than that.

The islands are mentioned, and so, of course, is Cedar Point. Did you know the park now has 50 “roaring, flailing, and full-sized animatronic dinosaurs?” We didn’t either. But they might be fun to check out.
