Grab a Holiday Drink with Friends
The holidays are a great time to catch up with friends and family. Make it a party and head out for a gathering at the local watering hole. For a great list of craft brews, try Grove City Brewing Company. Conveniently, the location also houses the Plum Run Winery to suit the tastes of everyone in your group.
Ooo and Aah at the Bison
When you’re in the mood to explore the wonderland of Ohio’s outdoors, head over to Battelle Darby Creek Metro Park and be awed by the majestic sight of shaggy brown bison against the white winter backdrop. The herd roams freely in two pastures covering 18 acres of the park. While you’re there, you can walk through the woodland, wetland, and prairie areas. There are also sledding hills and cross-country skiing trails to explore. Warm up after your adventures inside the Nature Center where you can see the Living Stream interactive exhibit.
