Item description for Partic Places: A Traveler's Guide to Ohio's Best Road Trips (Orange Frazer Roadbook) by Jane Ware...
Particular Places: A Traveler s Guide to the Best Ohio Road Trips shows that there is much more to the Buckeye State than cornfields and cows. In fact, according to author Jane Ware, what a person can see and do in Ohio is truly amazing.
For the traveler, traveling has become more rewarding than ever, said Ware. In Particular Places, we looked for distinctive and locally particular places to stay, eat, and see, along with good characters to hear about and sometimes meet.
Particular Places shows the best places to visit in 15 Ohio areas, including Marietta, Athens, Logan, Adams County, Yellow Springs, Lebanon, Granville, Mount Vernon, Coshocton, Amish Country, Maumee, Port Clinton, Sandusky, Lake Erie and the Lake Erie Islands.
And what a person can see and do in these 15 places is astounding.
According to the book, it s possible to eat raccoon and make your own golf club, to meet a horse rescuer and see the country s biggest horse-and-carriage parade, or to see a Stealth bomber and the world s only perambulator museum. You can even go to a washboard music festival, visit the world s only floating cranberry bog, or meet a baker who used to be a fashion model in Paris.
Ware not only gives readers a list of maps, phone numbers, and driving directions to each place, but she also includes a mix of fun trivia facts and opinionated insight on each destination.
I m thankful to these people, these events and phenomena, said Ware. They are making Ohio a better place to travel.

Writer Jane Ware spent years tracking down over 600 buildings chosen from a statewide perspective. Two centuries of Ohio courthouses, skyscrapers, museums, houses, churches, and factories appear with photos, drawings, floorplans and directions on exactly how to find them. Here are the famous architects who came from other places to design buildings in Ohio, as well as the now largely forgotten local architects who built beautiful places. Building Ohio's first volume, a look at architecture in eight Ohio cities--their buildings show just how great, how ambitious, how rich, how smart, how much fun--those cities once were.
Reviews - What do customers think about Partic Places: A Traveler's Guide to Ohio's Best Road Trips (Orange Frazer Roadbook)?
Not very helpful Aug 22, 2008
This book wasn't very helpful in finding places to go for a vacation to Ohio. The descriptions were short and lacking. There wasn't a lot of hotels or dining options included. I wouldn't recommend it.

A beautiful and useful book Apr 27, 2008
This soft-cover book describes a collection of fascinating towns around Ohio where history, art, architecture, culture, and good food come together. Beautifully printed, it is full of maps, charming drawings, and specific recommendations for activities and meals to make your visit worthwhile. I agree with the publisher who says that in this time of iffy air travel and high fuel prices it's worth exploring your own neighborhood.
