Ohio welcomes family, friends and visitors home for the holidays!

With world-class museums and performing arts, incredible zoos, indoor waterparks, brilliant holiday light displays, 74 State Parks and plenty more family-friendly attractions and events, Ohio has something for everyone.

Each of Ohio’s six zoos has something different to offer. Warm up at the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo in the Rain Forest, one of the largest entities of its kind with more than 10,000 plants and 600 animals from the jungles of Asia, Africa and the Americas. At the Columbus Zoo, the polar bears are sure to entertain amid a backdrop of Wildlights including two animated musical light shows. To make the night even more special, book an exclusive Wildlights Tour or Behind-the-Scenes tour with zookeepers. Visitors inspired by the penguins can try out the Toledo Zoo’s new ice rink, complete with skate rental and Lights Before Christmas.

For those craving warmer activities, Ohio’s eight indoor waterparks are just the ticket. After all, what are water slides, but sledding indoors?! With themes ranging from Africa to jungle islands and even a North Woods Lodge, there is an environment with activities to appeal to any family.

Under an inch or two of snow, Ohio State Parks become the perfect settings for sledding, ice skating and cross country skiing. There is nothing like a winter hike amid the stillness of the woods!
