Ohio Statehood Day in Chillicothe, Ohio

We decided to visit Ohio Statehood Day in Chillicothe, Ohio. Ohio became the 17th state on March 1, 1803. Chillicothe was the first capital of the new state (and the third but who’s counting?). So naturally, the city plays host to a number of historically themed statehood day activities.

Hiking Indiana Dunes

Hiking Indiana Dunes is an experience like no other. Here you’ll hike over giant sand dunes that lead the way to the shores of Lake Michigan. There, while you listen to the waves and feel the soft, squish of the sand between your toes, you can make out the outline of Chicago in the distance. The city is just 36 miles away, but feels like another world.
