Call for availability. Gervasi Vineyard is (first and foremost) a highly acclaimed winery near Akron, so you can count on wine tasting to be a main item on the itinerary. In fact, we named it as one of the absolute best wineries in the region! When you're not sipping vino or touring the vineyard, Gervasi Vineyard offers a bounty of other activities to fill the weekend. Enjoy romantic horse-drawn carriage rides, cooking classes, in-room yoga, golf and so much more!

Jones via the Columbus Zoo and AquariumWhat to Do: The Wilds, owned and operated by the Columbus Zoo & Aquarium, is a fantastic safari-like getaway that allows you to see animals in a much more natural environment. Embark on a specialty tour, which could include wine and rhinos, a comprehensive fishing experience, or a horseback sunset safari. And don't miss out on the zipline tour, which allows you to see it all from the canopy! Where to Stay: Book one of the private Yurts at Nomad Ridge in order to get the full Wilds experience. This is one of the most unique and luxe getaways an adventurous couple could ask for, located directly on the grounds of the safari park.

After exploring the park, retreat to your yurt and relax on the private porch, catching views of the wildlife off in the distance. Located on South Bass Island just off the coast of northern Ohio, Put-in-Bay is a beloved summer getaway for people from all over the state! The town draws nearly two million visitors every year, all of whom enjoy shopping in the charming stores, fishing for perch and walleye, dining at the excellent restaurants, and dancing the night away in local dive bars. To get there, grab the Jet Express from Sandusky or Port Clinton. Bonus: Amusement park enthusiasts should make sure to check out Cedar Point before or after their trip. This park is consistently ranked among the best in America. Where to Stay: The Island Club provides rental properties for couples, families and friend groups alike. Choose between a charming cottage or a waterfront condo depending on your preference.

Photo courtesy of Cuyahoga Valley National ParkWhat do Do: Cuyahoga Valley National Park has long been lauded as a bucket-list destination not just for Ohioans, but for people from all over the country. The park boasts lush foliage, cascading waterfalls, interesting rock formations, bountiful wildlife, and plenty of hiking and biking trails to experience it all. In fact, a segment of the trail within the park is part of the National B&B Bike Trail, which connects small B&Bs across the country. The Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad allows you to enjoy views of the breathtaking scenery from a train car, and there are even a few themed excursions throughout the year if you're looking for something non-traditional. Where to Stay: The charming town of Peninsula, located within the park, is a worthy destination on its own. There are a variety of unique accommodations in the area (including camping), but we recommend the Inn at Brandywine Falls. Overlooking the Brandywine Waterfall, the inn was built in 1848 and is on the National Register of Historic Places. Though it has been fully renovated, it hasn't lost an ounce of its historic charm.
