    I would suggest going south through Athens and heading to Point Pleasant, WV to go visit the mothman statute. This is a beautiful time of year down there and the views are gorgeous.

    We went to Dawes Arborteum[/url] last weekend and it is really beautiful.

    I think the family is heading here today. Can anyone recommend any good restaurants in Newark?

    Why not stay overnight one day? You really can see a lot more that way. I love going up to the Grand River Valley vineyards in NEOhio this time of year. Harvest is wrapping up and the weather seems perfectly suited.
    I did a Cleveland weekend earlier this month – great for food!
    I want to go to Jungle Jim’s near Cincinnati as well.
    One trip I haven’t done but would love to is a driving trip to the Hopewell and Adena mounds in Chillicothe, Newark, Bainbridge and Warren County. I love archaeology, and haven’t visited the stuff in my own backyard.

    I’d actually head to Granville instead of Newark.

    I could spend a day in Granville. Lots of cool old buildings, the alligator mound, good food at several places (and spots to get a drink), and its the home of Steve Carrell. Buxton Inn, the Short Story, Brews Cafe all worth a stop.

    Apple Valley Lake is a pleasant, tony resort about an hour’s drive from Columbus near Mount Vernon. Great for sailing and relaxing.

    I have never successfully and un-selfconsciously been able to use the adjective “tony”, so for this achievement, I salute you.

    I’m always confused by the different grammatical uses for Tony, Toni and Toné.

    I believe you’re thinking of the R & B group:

    Took your advice – just got back from Granville. It’s a wonderfully quaint little town. The only downside was we asked a local where we should eat dinner and they recommended a place called Del Mar. The food was barely edible but pricey and the service was terrible. Other than that though, we had a great time.

    Please tell me you at least got the kids ice cream at Victoria’s Parlour.

    we offered them the choice of ice cream from there or candy from “Grammas.” They opted for candy.

    Hyde Park in Cincinnati makes for a lovely day trip. Very urban, chic inner city neighborhood with eclectic, upscale shops and great restaurants with outdoor seating. The surrounding midrise apartment buildings and historic homes are an architect’s delight.
