An idea for an entertaining couple's getaway in Ohio is a stay at 21c Museum Hotel in Cincinnati, combined with a tour of the Contemporary Arts Center and Aronoff Center for the Arts. For couples with more of an interest in the outdoors, Glenlaurel in the Hocking Hills is an option for lodging. Visitors can enjoy the area's hiking, gold, hot tubs and zip-line canopy tour, along with specialist spa treatments, such as craniosacral therapy, reflexology and Reiki.
Another Hocking Hills getaway with plenty of activities is Cherry Ridge Retreat. Guests of the retreat's cabins can enjoy swimming, plunge pools, sitting around outdoor fire pits, hiking, golfing and fishing. There are also several natural attractions in the vicinity to explore, including Ash Cave, Conkle's Hollow, Cedar Falls and Cantwell Cliffs.
At Murphin Ridge Inn, an hour and a half's drive from Cincinnati, couples can arrange to stay in a room with a fireplace and private porch, and then spend their days relaxing in hammocks, swimming, playing tennis and croquet or receiving in-room massages. Guests can also visit local Amish-run stores for unique craft items, books, plants, furniture and baked snacks. Things to do at the neighboring Adams Lake State Park include picnicking, hiking, fishing and boating.
