Summer Road Trips: The Ohio Ice Cream Trail

4 Aug , 2018  

This year we’re continuing our weekly look during the summer months at unique festivals, events, and attractions that are within an easy driving distance of the Mansfield area. We call these “Summer Road Trips.” Of course, we regularly feature the many extraordinary places to visit right here in Richland County and encourage our readers to get out and experience what is on offer in our own backyard. The folks at TourismOhio have introduced the perfect antidote for a sweltering summer day.

Amid soaring temperatures, TourismOhio has launched the Ohio Ice Cream Trail. The 15-stop trail highlights local, family owned and nationally recognized ice cream shops across the state. Travelers can get the scoop at Ohio.org/IceCream.

“As we were creating the Ohio Adventure Trails website this spring, we realized how rich Ohio’s ice cream heritage is and felt creating a statewide ice cream trail could help showcase those businesses,” said Matt MacLaren, director of TourismOhio.”The feelings of happiness people experience from connecting with one another over ice cream is a perfect fit with the Ohio. Find it Here. brand.”

The online Ohio Ice Cream Trail experience includes:

  • Downloadable map outlining each stop
  • Inside information on what makes each shop unique
  • Vote for your favorite shop to be added to the trail

Voters are automatically entered to win a year’s worth of ice cream provided by Velvet Ice Cream. Five more stops will be added to the trail this summer!

To reward travelers for exploring the Ohio Ice Cream Trail, TourismOhio will be conducting a series of sweet giveaways on social media to participants who use #MyOhioScoop and #OhioFindItHere.

The Ohio Ice Cream Trail is one of many that can be found on the Ohio Adventure Trails map launched earlier this summer at Ohio.org. For more travel inspiration, follow @OhioFindItHere on FacebookTwitter and Instagram and share your photos using #MyOhioScoop and #OhioFindItHere.
