Plan Springtime Adventures Now

sidney-shelby-cover1Don’t Wait… Now is the time to begin planning your Springtime Weekend Adventure!

Ok… for most of us living in the continental US the previous three months has ill afforded many opportunities to get out and enjoy the great outdoors.  Coming out of one of the coldest winters on record has given us all an unmistakable case of cabin fever.

What to Do?  What to Do?

Located in west central Ohio on Interstate 75 is Sidney.  Here and in the surrounding area you’ll find a region rich with unique experiences sure to satisfy the most serotonin craved among us.

For those looking for a shot of adrenalin, you’ll find all you want at Vandemark Farm.  High speed zip lines and a ride on their giant swing await and are sure to elevate your heart rate.  As an alternative, how about 18 holes of mini golf to relax a bit as you hone your putting skills?  A petting zoo and full size golf practice range are also offered.  After it all, maybe an ice cream, snow cone, or something cold to drink will catch your eye at their concession stand.

If zip lines aren’t your thing, how about we step it back a little and go cycling on one or more of Sidney’s picturesque bike paths.  Ride the paved and rolling terrain of Tawawa Park.  Cycle a path running adjacent to the Great Miami River.  Stop for a picnic or simply to enjoy one of the many scenic overlooks.    All ages are sure to enjoy their time in the saddle touring the spring beauty of Sidney’s city parks.

As for lunch options, there are many and all are easy to get to by motorized vehicle or peddle power. Burgers, chicken, pizza, salads, wings and several ethnic options can be found in Sidney.  Indoor and outdoor dining choices are available at many locations.  Whatever your taste, you’re sure to find a satisfying location to curb those hunger pains and recharge your battery for an afternoon activity.

Nearby Jackson Center is home to the Airstream Company where each weekday at 2 p.m. they offer a factory tour that is free of charge and ranked by as one of the best factory tours in the US.  A second afternoon option may find you to nearby Lake Loramie for a boat ride, fishing, or maybe even some additional hiking and biking.  Lake Loramie is a beautiful Ohio State Park located just outside Sidney and offers overnight camping options in tents, cabins, or campers.

So, no need to wait!  Now is the time to get off the couch and begin planning your springtime visit to Sidney.  Everything you need to know can be found at  Sidney, Ohio… they’re waiting for you.
