Family Travel Ideas - Hocking Hills Ohio

With the poor economy and job concerns were staying a little closer to home for our family vacation this year. We looked at many different family travel ideas in our area and decided upon the Hocking Hills area of southern Ohio. A family vaction in Hocking Hills is going to be quite similar to the one we took to the Smokies a few years back. We have reseved a beautiful luxury cabin just outside the Hocking Hills state park. Our intentions are to do some canoeing and fishing and lots of hiking through the hills. If you looking for some family travel ideas for this year I'd definately suggest taking a look at the Hocking Hills region of Ohio. Its not nearly as commercialized as Gatlinburg or Pigeon Forge but offers many of the same types of activities. Its a great family vacation idea if you like hiking, fishing, canoeing and enjoying what nature has to offer. There are several Ohio state parks in the area including a lake, some caving is to be found and great fishing and water fun on the Hocking river so don't forget your fishing rod and reels.

The cabins availabe in the area range from rather primative to nice luxury cabins nestled deep in the wooded hills. Definately take time to research your location to make it centerally located for the types of things you want to include in your family vacation. There is some horseback riding trails and i'm sure you could locate a place where they offer horseback riding by the hour or day. Camping is also a great family vacation idea for this area with all the state parks you can easily find a place for your tent or campers. Dont over look the enjoyment you can get just sitting around a gas fire pit and sharing stories with each other.When we get back I'll post some picutres of our family travels to Hocking Hills
