explore on dry land HIKING — Ohio is full of hiking trails for short adventures into the outdoors or extended journeys on foot all around the state. Within the footprint of the 167-acre Nelson-Kennedy Ledges State Park in Nelson Township, you can squeeze through the crevasses of otherworldly rock formations, explore dark caverns, and seek out the park’s waterfalls in a short time. OHIO.ORG, 1-800-BUCKEYE

For journeys that can last a day or several months, follow the blue blazes on the Buckeye Trail. It takes about three months to through-hike the entire 1,444-mile circular loop that traverses Ohio’s only national park, 18 state parks, five state forests, and many other natural areas. For shorter excursions, take on sections of the trail in places like Hocking Hills State Park in Logan or East Fork State Park in Bethel. The latter also has a 14-mile backpacking trail and the 32-mile Steven Newman Worldwalker Perimeter Trail, both with free backcountry camping in designated areas.

BIKING — With more cycling routes than

any other state, Ohio is one of the top spots in the nation to get your wheels turning along the scenic byways. The state boasts five U.S. Bicycle Routes covering 1,523 miles that link its major cities, follow scenic waterways, and traverse rural landscapes. The 314-mile long U.S. Bicycle Route 21 from Cleveland to Cincinnati is noted for having more than 70 percent of its route on off-street trails. It follows sections of the Ohio to Erie Trail along former railroad beds and historic canals. Approximately 1,600 additional miles of state-designated bike routes make it easy to explore even more areas that are seldom seen from behind the wheel of a car. Mountain bikers won’t want to miss exploring Wayne National Forest, Ohio’s national forest that covers over a quarter million acres in southeast Ohio. See the woods onboard your bike or on an ATV on the state’s largest off-highway vehicle trail. Find your way at Ohio.org/Cycling. to all kinds of campers from backcountry pros to those who want more comforts from home. Options for tents and trailers abound at Shawnee State Park campground in Blue Creek, which also has two camper cabins equipped with electricity, heating, and cooling. The wooded campground hugs Turkey Creek, which winds through the rugged hilly landscape of the Appalachian foothills — dubbed Ohio’s Little Smokies. Over by Dayton, Cowan Lake State Park has a large campground with more than 200 sites at the north end of a peaceful lake with a family-friendly beach, naturalist cabin, and a family fishing pond. Find even more campgrounds around Ohio, including KOAs, by visiting OhioCampers.com.

PICNICS — Come summer, pack a lunch

and take it to a park. Spread a blanket at the edge of a tranquil pond or fire up the grill at a reservable park picnic shelter. The quiet Mt. Gilead State Park has several picnic areas near its lake. Salt Fork State Park near Cambridge has nine picnic areas, including two shelters next to the beach. Just be careful to clean up to avoid an unwanted encounter with Bigfoot (RIGHT), who allegedly has been spotted in the surrounding woodlands. 20

national park explorer’s guide OHIO’S NATURAL WONDERS

OHIO’S ONLY NATIONAL PARK — THE CUYAHOGA VALLEY NATIONAL PARK — is just a stone’s throw away from the urban

center of Cleveland, where the winding Cuyahoga River starts to snake through deep forests, rocky ledges, and wetlands.

ACCESS MATTERS

Use this handy checklist of the top things to try inside the national park. Take a short hike to Brandywine Falls, where water trickles over ancient layers of sandstone and shale like a tiered wedding cake. Watch the distinctive silhouettes of great blue herons as they stalk their prey in the shallow marshes of the park. From February through June, many of these large birds can be found nesting at the Bath Road Heronry.

Cuyahoga Valley National Park strives to make its visitor centers’ activities accessible for people with a wide range of abilities. One of the Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad’s (BELOW) train cars offers a wheelchair lift, while the park has boardwalks, picnic tables, and fishing piers with special accommodations.

making waves

WATER TRAILS — Some of Ohio’s best

trails travel across the waves of Lake Erie or the glassy surface of inland rivers and streams. Ohio’s designated water trails highlight routes with launch and landing sites for paddlers, places to rest or camp, and points of interest along the way. The Vermilion-Lorain Water Trail is unique to the state because it combines river travel with open-water paddling along the Lake Erie shoreline. More great paddling awaits along the 830 miles of the state’s 15 designated Wild, Scenic, and/or Recreational rivers. The Little Beaver Creek State Wild and Scenic River in Columbiana County was the first Ohio waterway to get protected status in 1974. Drift along with the gentle current and bounce over easy rapids while admiring the remote, idyllic scenery, especially between Beaver Creek State Park and Lock 57 Community Park.

WATERFALL SPOTTING — The best time to see Ohio’s waterfalls at their most voluminous is following the spring thaw, when the snow melts and heads off on a journey through woodlands, meadows, and gorges, before cascading over rocky cliffs. A 2-mile loop trail that starts at Mohican State Park’s Covered Bridge and follows Clear Fork upstream leads to Big Lyons and Little Lyons, a pair of low-flow waterfalls that look best after a heavy rainstorm. Other waterfalls can be found in populous urban areas, such as Indian Run Falls in Dublin, just outside of Columbus. A short walking path leads to viewing platforms and ends at Dublin Veterans Park and Indian Run Cemetery, one of the oldest Native American burial grounds in central Ohio.

BOATING — Ohio has one true

Great Lake, but there are still many other picturesque lakes around the state that are great for pleasure cruising in your own watercraft or one you can rent from an on-site marina. Grand Lake St. Mary’s is Ohio’s largest man-made lake with 52 miles of shoreline, several boaters’ beaches, three lighthouses, and two lakeside communities. Pontoons rule this shallow waterway, which has an average depth of 5 to 7 feet, but there are no horsepower limits, so tubing is a popular pastime. In Mt. Sterling, Deer Creek State Park’s reservoir also has no horsepower restrictions. In the spring, the lake is popular with anglers vying for saugeye below the dam. During the heat of summer, boats can anchor in the cove adjacent to the state park lodge for swimming.

FISHING — Fishing in Ohio is off the hook. Lake Erie’s walleye population is exploding and

MOSQUITO LAKE STATE PARK: LAURA WATILO BLAKE, INDIAN RUN FALLS: TOM LASTRANGE, SALT FORK STATE PARK: MATTHEW ALLEN

there are hundreds of other lakes that have excellent angling opportunities. At Rocky Fork State Park in southwest Ohio, the lake harbors some of the largest channel catfish in the state, and you’ll also reel in bass, bluegill, crappie, and saugeye. If you don’t have a boat, there’s great shoreline fishing, too. Head to the lighted fishing pier near the East Shore Marina boat launch at night, when the green underwater light attracts small baitfish and the larger fish that eat them. In northeast Ohio, Mosquito Lake State Park is popular for its well-stocked walleye population. It also harbors one of the state’s best populations of northern pike in both size and number.

How do you create such unique dishes? My cooking is about bringing attention to things I love. For example, my memory of going to Taco Bell as a kid, my family’s Bengali heritage and Ohio’s great barbecue inspired our Cheesy Brisket Crunch, delicious tacos made with Bengali fry bread and brisket. What’s Ohio’s food scene like? Ohio is neat in that you’ll find places that have been around forever that are just as exciting as new spots. I love places like Mili Café in Columbus. They’ve been there over 15 years and the owner still makes every single Bahn Mi sandwich herself. Or Crabill’s Hamburger Shoppe in Urbana. They have been serving amazing burgers since 1927! Why do you love being a chef? My job as a chef is to make you feel good. I get the chance to influence so many people, from making their day better to changing their perspective on life.

IN 2020, THE COLUMBUS RESIDENT CELEBRATED ANOTHER ACHIEVEMENT BY BEING THE FIRST WOMAN TO DIVE INTO THE MARIANA TRENCH, EARTH’S DEEPEST OCEANIC TRENCH. Did you always dream of being an astronaut? In a word, no. But I did always dream of having a life that was adventurous and inquisitive, like the astronauts, Jacques Cousteau, and the figures in National Geographic magazine had. I thought, “That life looks pretty cool. How do I get that kind of life?” How did your experiences in space and the ocean impact how you see the world? Having the chance to see our planet from space literally changes your perspective and recalibrates a lot of things. Visiting space gave me a rich sense of what’s important and what’s not, what I’m connected to and what I’m not. And the main thing I came away with from exploring the ocean is just how dazzling the array of life in it is! Where are your favorite places in Ohio?

Disembark and check out the island’s prehistoric glacial grooves, Kelleys Island Wine Co., and dynamite views of Lake Erie. If you’re into more of fast-paced island life, Jet Express will ferry you to South Bass Island’s Put-in-Bay, which feels like being dropped onto a lively Caribbean island with exciting bars and restaurants, and lots of live music. Once you’re back at your car, head to Maumee Bay State Park outside of Toledo. Situated on Lake Erie, the park’s lodge is the perfect place to recharge. Nearby Magee Marsh is a bird watcher’s paradise, especially during the spring when eye-catching warblers stop over briefly on their migration north. For your last stop, follow the new 419 Ale Trail in Toledo and stop at breweries such as Maumee Bay Brewing Co., Patron Saints Brewery, and Earnest Brew Works. The city is nicknamed the Glass City, and you can see why at the revered Toledo Museum of Art, which has an amazing collection of glassworks. Learn to blow glass at one of the museum’s many workshops in its Glass Pavilion. Just like the Cleveland Museum of Art, admission is free.

Once I climbed into the biplane and took my position in front of the cockpit, my apprehension started to ease. As the plane taxied down the runway, I felt apprehension slip away, replaced by a growing sense of excitement which turned to exhilaration as the plane climbed into the air for my 20-minute flight over Troy.”

Land-Grant Brewing Company

Columbus is a city that has persevered through the hardships of the past couple of years, in large part due to our local business owners and tight-knit resident community. Columbus now continues to be the perfect getaway for anyone looking to enjoy big-city excitement mixed effortlessly with small-town charm. Columbus is a city made for larger-than-life personalities. Are you a foodie who lives to explore diverse cuisine? Maybe you’re a trendsetter who lives for fashion? Columbus will not

only help you find your niche, it will help you settle in and make yourself at home. We’re calling all sports fans, nightlife lovers, and artists. Columbus is waiting for you.

SHORT NORTH IS AN ART LOVER’S DREAM

The Short North Arts District sits along the stretch of High Street between downtown and Ohio State’s campus and is signified by the 17 lighted arches that line the main thoroughfare. At its heart, the Short North is an arts neighborhood, evident by its monthly Gallery Hops as well as its many murals. The sides of the Graduate Hotel host the world’s largest augmented reality mural, The Journey, while art in all forms can be found in numerous galleries and hotels throughout the area. The Garden Theater features performances and cabaret shows year-round, and renowned drag performer Nina West performs original shows at Axis Nightclub.

Beyond art, the area is a hub of activity offering more than 100 restaurants, galleries, and boutiques, and is booming with new mixed-use and residential development. The Short North is also very LGBTQ+friendly and considered to be one of the city’s gayborhoods.


North Market

SHORT NORTH ARTS DISTRICT: RON BLUNT, NORTH MARKET: PETER AHN

Downtown Columbus is experiencing a revitalization, evident by the open doors of new coffeehouses and restaurants, as well as markets full of unique finds. Pearl Market, a pop-up farmers market located in historic Pearl Alley on Gay Street, is open throughout the summer and into early fall beginning in May. Open Tuesdays

and Thursdays, there you’ll find farm-fresh foods as well as baked goods, handmade jewelry, and more. North Market is also a must-stop on any foodie’s list. The indoor market is open year-round and is considered one of the city’s many modern food courts (along with Budd Dairy Food Hall in Italian

Columbus Crew

TEAM SPIRIT ABOUNDS IN THE ARENA DISTRICT The northwest part of downtown Columbus is known as the Arena District, due to the neighborhood anchor Nationwide Arena.

In addition to hosting concerts from some of the nation’s biggest acts, Nationwide Arena is also home to NHL’s Columbus Blue Jackets, the only NHL franchise in Ohio and an absolute force to be reckoned with in the NHL. Nearby, the Columbus Clippers, the AAA affiliate of the Cleveland Indians, play at Huntington Park, named best ballpark in America numerous times by Ballpark Digest.

New kid on the block and home to the 2020 MLS Cup Champions, the Columbus Crew, is Lower.com Field. The 20,000-seat stadium opened in the summer of 2021 and is part of a larger mixed-use development behind Huntington Park. Unique features include a continuous wraparound roof, a 360-degree concourse, event space, a 3,400-capacity standing section — along with two patio decks and a “Nordecke Beer Garden” (a first for Major League Soccer) — and a 5,000-square-foot brew hall that’s also open on non-match days.

Pistacia Vera

GERMAN VILLAGE WILL TRANSPORT YOU

Crossing the bridge from downtown Columbus into German Village is akin to crossing the Atlantic and landing in idyllic 19th-century Germany. Originally built by German settlers in the mid-1800s, the lovingly restored brick houses, shops, streets, and sidewalks are full of historic charm and modern swank. The entirety of this charming neighborhood is on the National Register of Historic Places, and its German roots show through in its dining options. Sit down at Lindey’s for a sophisticated, old-school experience. Or keep your sweet tooth top of mind with a visit to Pistacia Vera. This pretty little café has homemade macarons that are the perfect way to start your day.

Franklinton, separated from downtown by the Scioto River to the east, continues to experience a renaissance as a center for the city’s maker culture and independent art scene. Visitors can take a trapeze class or explore independent studios at 400 West Rich, an old drinking fountain manufacturing facility offering affordable space for up-and-coming artists. There are plenty of options for those looking to create their own art, including places like Glass Axis and Makers Social. Franklinton Fridays, taking place the second Friday of each month, or the annual Urban Scrawl are great opportunities to explore all the community has to offer. The area is anchored by two major attractions along the Scioto River: COSI and the National Veterans Memorial and Museum. COSI is Columbus’ dynamic hands-on science center that offers more than 300 interactive experiences as well as the one-of-akind American Museum of Natural History Dinosaur Gallery. Meanwhile, the National Veterans Memorial and Museum is the only facility in the country that honors all veterans and their families, from all branches of service and eras of conflict, under one roof. Franklinton is exploding with growth, so it’s a neighborhood sure to keep you coming back time and again.

Why did you decide to open a certified gluten-free bakery? Wendy: About 15 years ago, I discovered I was gluten intolerant. I started baking for friends and bringing fun, gluten-free desserts to gatherings. The idea took off from there. After starting our business in an incubator space which we quickly outgrew, we opened our first bakery in Columbus’ Merion Village in 2014, and our second one in Dublin’s North Market in 2020. Are there signature items on your menu? Wendy: Our signature cookie is our Oatmeal Creme Cloud, marshmallow fluff made in-house sandwiched between two soft oatmeal molasses cookies. We do a lot of riffs on nostalgic snack cakes patterned after Ding Dongs and Twinkies. What do you love about Ohio? Letha: Columbus — and Ohio in general — has a very supportive business climate. The city invests in large businesses, but is also taking steps to create a robust small-business community. Our state is strong in its diversity, and the historical perspective of Ohio’s national significance with the Underground Railroad means a great deal.

There are 16 attractions on the trail — get your passport stamped as you visit each one, and you’ll leave with a prize.

Jack Pine IS KNOWN FOR PUMPKINS AND AMAZING

GLASS ARTISTRY. AND HE’S EAGER TO SHARE HIS SKILLS. THE ACCLAIMED GLASSBLOWER TEACHES WORKSHOPS AT HIS JACK PINE STUDIO IN LAURELVILLE, WHERE HE ALSO SELLS HIS WORK. VISIT IN SEPTEMBER WHEN THE JACK PINE GLASS PUMPKIN FESTIVAL WELCOMES FALL WITH HUNDREDS OF COLORFUL PUMPKINS.

What got you started back in Ohio after apprenticing in Seattle and Colorado? I set up a booth at the Circleville Pumpkin Show. It was a hit, and I created a following that grew each year. When I moved back to Ohio for good, I decided to really develop the pumpkins and take them on various art shows all over the Midwest and beyond. You created your own Glass Pumpkin Festival to feature local artists in 2020. How did that go? It was a huge success, so we decided to do it again in 2021. We had over 8,000 visitors over the three days and sold close to 4,000 pumpkins that were spread out outdoors in front of our shop. Where in Ohio do you like to explore? Obviously the Hocking Hills is the best! I’m proud to be a part of the attractions here.

wine by the water

Coshocton County natives Beau Guilliams and his wife, Tracy, own Raven’s Glenn Winery and Restaurant, which produces 28 wine varieties along the Tuscarawas River in West Lafayette.

What do you like about the winemaking business? As a winemaker in today’s computer savvy environment, I find it really rewarding to do something the way it’s always been done. There’s no technology in it. Just use good fruit and good products, and it will come out good in the end. Your restaurant is open Thursdays through Sundays. Do you pair your wine with your food? While the customer always has the choice, we have a lot of wines we can pair with food. We also offer a lot of craftbrewed beer, all from kegs. What’s your favorite spot to travel to in Ohio? My wife and I are avid fishermen, and we like to make an afternoon out of floating down the Tuscarawas River. Maybe we catch some fish and maybe we don’t, but we never have to go far to be in the heart of nature.

HUSBAND AL WAS THE FIRST EMPLOYEE AND PRESS AGENT OF MOTOWN RECORDS, AND TO CELEBRATE HIS LEGACY, SHE’S ESTABLISHING A NEW MOTOWN BLACK & WHITE MUSEUM & COLLECTION IN FINDLAY.

How did you choose Findlay for the museum? We moved into the city and it’s been a wonderful experience. I decided to keep the collection here because of the community, to provide Findlay an Ohio music destination that moves it to a high-profile worldwide music identity. What do you hope people will experience there once it’s open? I’m looking forward to how many people it will draw in. Music surrounds us more than anything else in our lives. What says more than music?

CEDAR POINT: @PEAK_ADERNALINE, NATIONAL MUSEUM OF THE GREAT LAKES: MEGAN LEIGH BARNARD, PERRY’S MONUMENT: NICK NAGLICH, NANCY ABRAHMS: JEREMY WADSORTH

Where else do you like to go across the region? I like to go to the Hillside Winery in Gilboa. They have music on the weekends, and it was where my husband and I could go and get away from everything. I like taking people to The Ohio State University football games. SamB’s in Bowling Green is great, as well the Toledo Zoo, Mancy’s, and the Toledo Museum of Art (BELOW). I have friends that come in from all over the world to see the museum.

Carey Brewing Station in Carey focuses on using all Ohiogrown hops and barley in their beers. We chatted with owner Derek Cunningham about his

What drew you to using Ohio ingredients in your beer? We started out, my son and I, growing hops in 2014 and selling them to breweries across the state. We’re a family that’s grown up in agriculture. When we got into the business as a brewery, we thought we’d use hops from our farm and malted barley from across the state. Do Ohio products impart any particular flavors to the beer? One hop that we feature ourselves is Arcadian. It turned out to be a hop that’s very profitable, very unique, and brewers like it. We use it in our Mr. C. Hay-es-e IPA — it gives you a little hoppiness that’s not quite as potent as, say, Columbus hops.

Aside from your brewery, where else do you like to visit? We like White Shutter Winery (ABOVE) in Nevada, which started as a winery and then added a brewery. A new one that just opened up is 1820 BrewWorks in Kalida — we’ve enjoyed that. And Laird Arcade Brewery in Tiffin.

How did you learn the fine art of baking with unusual ingredients — including making pawpaw bread with Ohio’s state fruit? I’m very much a do-it-yourselfer who loves to try new things. When pawpaw season came around a few years ago, I kept looking up recipes and began experimenting until I figured out which one made the fluffiest and densest bread. For variety, I add cranberries, fresh blueberries, pumpkin seeds, or crushed walnuts. I also add herbs to cold drinks and cocktails because they add layers of flavor that only nature can provide. Why do you love gardening in Ohio? I love the changing seasons. And when you’re gardening, you can see the stages of growth each time of the year brings. Where are your favorite places to explore? I really love kayaking in calm waters. I spend time discovering the many cool little coves in Charles Mill Lake. Clearfork Reservoir is my favorite place because it’s filled with beauty, including breathtaking yellow waterlilies that my niece and I saw this summer.

Why did you choose to open the distillery in the heart of Amish Country? I grew up in Fredericksburg, and my dad is from West Salem, so we’ve always been here. The farmers we rely on for our grains are great guys, who are very open and transparent with us about what they do and how their growing process works. What do you love about Ohio’s farmland? The farmers tell me Wayne County has thick layers of topsoil, which is really good for growing the grain we use. Ohio provides an ideal climate for growing rye. A winter crop, it’s planted in the fall, germinates through the winter and is harvested in spring and summer — which leads to pretty high yields, especially in northeast Ohio. And I love the fact that I can drive right past the field where my corn is coming from.

O H I O TAS T E M AK E R

that’s the spirit Since 2016, Andrew Morrison and his dad Mark, owners of Minglewood Distilling Company in Wooster, have handcrafted small-batch spirits including vodka, rye, gin, and bourbon using ingredients grown by northeast Ohio farmers. Andrew attributes much of the distillery’s success to the ideal growing conditions the region affords.

No matter where I go, they’re very welcoming and very helpful — especially in Wayne County and in Wooster. Wooster is a very supportive community where businesses like to help other local businesses. You don’t see that in many other states.

1

Take a stroll along the Cincinnati Black Music Walk of Fame, opening this summer. Since African-American musicians have played an indispensable part in making Cincinnati one of the nation’s most influential music cities, this new star-studded walkway recognizes the contributions of local legends like the Grammy-winning Isley Brothers, singersongwriter Bootsy Collins, Motown singer Otis “Big Daddy” Williams, and gospel music pioneer Charles Fold.

2

Witness wonder and mystery in Ohio’s Appalachian foothills at Serpent Mound (BELOW) in Peebles, where the world’s largest snake-shaped earthworks coils across a grassy plateau. Ancient Native Americans constructed the nearly quarter mile-long effigy mound, but the magnificent serpent’s purpose — religious? ceremonial? astronomical? — remains a riddle that is yet to be solved.

More than 80 sculptures can be found outdoors throughout 300 naturally beautiful acres of undulating hills.

You don’t have to be a foodie to fall in love with Jungle Jim’s International Market (RIGHT). Each of Jungle Jim’s massive stores in Fairfield and Eastgate covers more than 200,000 square feet and contains an incomparable selection of 180,000 products from 70-plus countries.

Journey from Ohio to the moon in the National Aviation Heritage Area (ABOVE) as you explore inspiring sites extending from the Wright Brothers’ hometown of Dayton to Wapakoneta, where the first moonwalker — astronaut Neil Armstrong — grew up. Must-sees include the National Museum of the United States Air Force’s military aircraft collection and the world’s first practical flying machine, the 1905 Wright Flyer III, at Carillon Historical Park. Get a fresh and fascinating perspective on the art that you see every day in Cincinnati’s American Sign Museum (BELOW), the nation’s largest public museum dedicated to commercial signs. The remarkable collection covers everything from old-fashioned gilded signs to neon and 3D plastic signs.

As a National Park Service ranger, you could work anywhere. Why did you choose Ohio? It was fate. I’m a 1997 graduate of Paul Laurence Dunbar High School in Washington, D.C. When I learned that Dayton’s park includes Dunbar’s house, I felt I needed to tell his story. Why did you start the Dunbar 150 Project? I wanted to raise awareness that Dayton has a national park and emphasize that it’s not just about the Wright Brothers but also Paul Laurence Dunbar. How has your love of history helped you to promote two iconic Ohioans? I wanted to bring relevance back to Dunbar by highlighting his contributions to America. Since Taft was the 27th U.S. President and 10th Chief Justice, my goal is to compare what he did in office and on the bench with modern political figures. Where in Ohio do you like to explore or take guests? I’ve taken my parents to the Ohio Renaissance Festival and National Museum of the United States Air Force (LEFT), and I love going to the Ohio History Center in Columbus.

Once a pork-packing capital, southwest Ohio showcases pork on its menus along with whimsical flying pig sculptures — including one named Hamlet at the Cincinnati Shakespeare Company. Bread and butter pickles with jalapeños provide some heat and wood fires produce exceptional meats at Pickles & Bones Barbecue in Milford where even the sides — including bourbon roasted sweet potatoes — are homemade. Try the pork belly tacos or the Pendleton Porker sandwich with the trifecta of pulled pork, smoked pork bellies, and bacon at Lucius Q in Cincinnati. They even offer a spin on Cincinnati’s other claim to fame, chili, in their BBQ 3-Way with barbecue pulled pork, spaghetti, and shredded cheddar cheese. The barbecue sauce is so tasty that customers slather it on fried bologna sandwiches as well as plates of pulled pork, brisket, and chicken at Beaugard’s Southern Bar B Que in Wilmington. The homestyle menu at Werner’s Smokehouse Bar-B-Que in Jeffersonville entices with house-fried pork rinds, BLTs with sweet-peppered bacon, homemade ham and bean soup, and pulled pork hotshot served with mashed potatoes and gravy.


Naiyozcsia King, owner of Mz. Jade’s Soul Food in Middletown, has been serving her favorite foods to hungry customers since 2018. Although each dish is distinctly different, there’s one key ingredient: “My main seasoning,” she says with a hearty laugh,“ is love.” How did you acquire the nickname Jade? My sister used to call me Jade because that’s my favorite color. How did you learn to cook? My grandmother taught me. By the time I was 6 years old, I knew the fundamentals of the kitchen and could season chicken. By the time I was 11, I could cook a four-course meal without any supervision. She made sure I was in the kitchen with her every time she cooked. It became a passion. How do you define soul food? To me, it’s food from the heart that brings people together. Everybody loves soul food — they just don’t know it until they try it. What are some of your favorite places in the Cincinnati area? I have 13 grandchildren, and we love going to the aquarium and the zoo. Fountain Square hosts many wonderful events year-round, and I love attending them.

Modeled after a Victorian home, it has a grand front porch outfitted with relaxing rocking chairs, Amish-made poster beds, and an onsite restaurant specializing in comfort foods and craft cocktails. Enjoy the perfectly harmonious Symphony Hotel in Cincinnati. The boutique hotel hits a high note with its unbeatable location near the Cincinnati Music Hall, nine distinctive guest rooms named for composers, a popular jazz bar, and full-service restaurant specializing in New American cuisine.

ABOVE: Stay in style

in the new cabins at Camp Cedar. BELOW: Sip on expertly crafted cocktails at Mills Park Hotel.

Unwind at downtown Cincinnati’s chic 21c Hotel. Their spa delivers head-to-toe treatments, including the calming Himalayan Salt Stone Massage and the Ultimate Stress Reliever offering 80 minutes of tension-relieving bliss. Breathe in the fresh air at the rooftop cocktail bar, then check out the contemporary art on display.

Enjoy the ultimate in relaxation at Gravity Spa in Beavercreek. Like the name suggests, you’ll seemingly defy gravity as you float in water saturated with around 1,000 pounds of Epsom salt and heated to skin temperature. OHIO.ORG, 1-800-BUCKEYE 135
